Oh, _that_ Hampton Inn...

26 Feb 2005

So, 2 weeks to go before I get to SXSW its suddenly dawns on me that I may have booked the wrong hotel. You see, being ‘a hicks from the sticks’ it didn’t occur to me that Austin, Texas may have more than one ‘Hampton Inn’. In fact I’ve found three. So instead of being 5 blocks away in Hampton Inn Downtown, I’m 5 miles away at Hampton Inn ‘North’. Doh. Arse.

Mind you that’s the least of my worries. I’m appearing on a panel with Doug, Dave, John and Eris. Talk about sharing a stage with people that can only be described as ‘your guru’s’. The pressure is well and truly on. There’s a Gary Larson cartoon where a large cockroach is lying in an alleyway with a tramp. He’s explaining to him what a successful business he once had, until “one day in a board meeting, someone stands up and says “Hey! That guys just a big cockroach!!”“. Thats how it feels sometimes…
