These are the somewhat non-fictional tales of an over-ripe paralegal who lives with her husband (ToolMan) and their dog (Andy Rooney), in which she goes on about her knitting, her work, her knitting, her life, her knitting, her friends, her knitting, her hedgehog collection, her knitting, her spinning, and her knitting. And has an occasional hissy fit.

Today was Registration Day at Sock Summit 2011, so Tami and I rode MAX to the Convention Center this afternoon. Tami was working the Registration Desk and I was going to register and hang out. We got there in plenty of time, but they were running behind so training was delayed, thereby delaying registration.
Since we had a little time, Tami and I went into OSCON, which was being held in the other side of the Convention Center. We started picking up the little bits of SWAG being handed out: note pads, magnets, key chains, coasters. Then we discovered that if you let the vendor scan your badge, you got the good stuff: t-shirts, wooden puzzles, canvas tote bags. Good thing we scored a couple of tote bags, because we needed them to carry our booty.
Yep, that whole pile is what we each brought home from OSCON. I wish the vendors at Sock Summit gave away this much SWAG!
Tomorrow: Day 1 of the Summit, who I got assigned to, the Marketplace, and Opening Reception.
