Today we finished the "work" part of this workshop and tonight is all about having fun...so naturally I feel so rotten I didn't even try to walk over to dinner. All week I've felt great and had a terrific time, but today's lunch just didn't agree with me so here I sit in our spacious and elegant suite (sarcasm alert--we're staying in a dorm featuring carpets held together by duct tape and dirt) noodling around online instead of enjoying a Northwest barbecue while listening to the results of the Team Haiku project. I know my team's haiku rocks because, frankly, our team rocks, but I'd like to hear some others for the sake of comparison. I would be willing to bet that our haiku is the only one that includes a reference to D.B. Cooper.
Tomorrow morning we check out and tomorrow night I fly out on the redeye, but not before spending a day exploring Seattle. I intend to recover fully by then. It's just not fair to get sick at the very moment when things start to get interesting.
