I’m totally jazzed about the upcoming Marketing FAD which kicks off this weekend. The Marketeers will be meeting in Raleigh, Friday (late-late Friday, probably starting at zee Waffle House!) and ending Tuesday; I’ll be headed out of town Wednesday. We have a boatload of deliverables we plan on knocking out, and on top of that, well, FUN STUFF. We’re going to a hockey game, for one – and, coincidentally, It will be the Carolina Hurricanes vs. Phoenix Coyotes.
So for background: Ryan Rix and I are both traveling to RDU from… you guessed it, Phoenix. I am not exactly the world’s biggest sports nut, but of course I have to root for my hometown, so I’ve been cracking jokes about how I’m going to be decked out in my full Coyotes gear (which, of course, I don’t actually have). Here’s a fun clip from the marketing meeting yesterday on IRC, where we were discussing any last-minute items we needed to wrap up before our FAD:
20:06:35 <spevack> so I think we're in pretty decent shape. 20:06:46 <spevack> That's really about it from my end. 20:06:47 <spevack> HOCKEY 20:06:48 <spevack> :) 20:06:48 <spevack> EOF 20:06:50 <rbergeron> oh 20:07:09 * rbergeron and rrix are bringin yotes gear 20:07:27 * rrix has a jersey :) 20:07:31 * mchua chuckles 20:07:35 <rbergeron> oh, you do? ergh 20:07:43 * rbergeron has... facepaint?
In any case: I’m somewhat packed, I’m only bringing 2 pairs of shoes (zomg, I know, right?!) because I have to make room for…
I’m up to my ears in promises. ke4qqq may be going home from the FAD with 10 boxes of girl scout cookies because of his limesurvey awesomeness (plz see my ongoing tale of luv for survey-goodness on the fp.o market research wiki page).
But seriously: I had a point to this blog post. And I’m getting to it…. right… now. 🙂
