The audio portion of the meeting proceeded, but I did not connect, preferring to watch the replay at a later date when both the audio and video would be working.
I later found out that the meeting was prerecorded, and someone played the recording into their phone, and that's what the people who did dial into the audio portion of the meeting heard. Technology.
There were five people confirmed for EAGLE's monthly luncheon today. In the last half hour, three people sent regrets. It ended up being just Jon and me. We ate at Danny's BBQ at Alexander and Miami.
I had some fun AIM conversations with Robert today, who was working at UNC while the NC Children's Hospital fundraiser was going on at which country stars Blaine Larsen and Buddy Jewel were performing.
I got a couple of excited IMs that "Blaine and I were just shoulder-to-shoulder," and "Buddy just walked by..." So cute!
I left work late today, and stopped by Alpine on the way home to pick up my skis. They look great. I can't wait to try them next month.
I went to the gym, where I listened to several podcasts while walking from 10:00 until they closed at 11.
At the end of the first story of the NPR: Most E-mailed Stories for Thursday, 11/17, I found tears rolling down my cheeks. Not a good look for a man in the gym. So society says.
Other podcasts I listened to:
