Big heads and plink

Conference. I will be at a conference this weekend.

[code-switching alert]

I find myself asking: What is a little plink doing at a conference? Regional big names (TuaLiapThau to you and me) from industry and academia alike are going to be there.

My only consolation is that I will be away from home for a few days. There is not much joy in that because there is so much left still to do, especially that second project.

It would be nice if we could do this as a video conference, but people I spoke to seemed to want an excuse to party away from home. Seik pau mo yeir jou, izzit?

Just to make things even more interesting, plink is not well. My nose is running like the Olympic Speed Skating Rink at the moment (refrigeration turned off mah...). My eyes are red and teary, plus I can't hear too well.

I SAID I CAN'T HEAR TOO WELL!!

Apparently, I'm not speaking clearly either.

Someone please tell me that this is entirely innocent and not something I picked up while being naughty in a time and place that I can't remember.

Oh no, is my memory starting to go too?!

I could use TNT and blow off the offending nose, but some might consider that extreme. Since my option probably won't be considered, GO SEE THE DOCTOR.

Sorry to shout lor. Just went into Daddy mode. Got to make sure you young uns take care of yourself. Please see a professional.

And if the conference is full of industry folks, you need to reub elbows. Spy on the competition, meet people and plant bugs on them. When they are not looking put hacking sw on their laptops to provide access for later. And may network a little too. You could find anuddah opportunity.

Or you could hit the pharmaceutical malls for runny nose relief potions.

I heard those that contain mosquito proboscis and squid gills work best...

LB: Wakakaka!! Did feel like that for a while. All that rushing around and the stage fright when presenting and whatnot.
SAm: I wish there were more industry folks at the conference, for precisely the reason you gave above.
YeeWei: Eeyerr....
NEWSFLASH! Nose getting better, voice coming back.
All I need to do is survive to the end of the week (hard deadline for second project is on Sunday)....

Yvy: Been back a while. It's just been busy time since conference (Ireland woi... nice country). Only just back online.
SAm: So sorry. Once back online, I saw. 'Help' and 'I'm OK' in rapid succession. That'll teach me to stay away from Blogland again....
