It sure has gotten brisk around here, but I had promised Röbert that I would try to spend a lil’ but more time doing things he likes to do, so he suggested we take a hike somewhere. Um, no thanks. I did agree to play a few holes of golf though. I used to be on the golf team in high school because the boys were pretty cute, so I know my way around a golf stick. It was so windy at the course though. BRRRRRR. We played one hole and then went into the clubhouse for some Bloody Marys and then we stopped at the antiques store and jewelry store for a little browsing on the way home. I love when I make the day all about my man!
So, while it may seem to some that our marriage is perfect, sometimes Röbert just gets the teensiest bit angry with me. This week would be an example. When I called to let him know I was in San Jose, he had already apparently heard about it from my parents, who I guess are also somewhat annoyed (it is like they are missing the love your grandlittles gene or something!)
Röbert and I in a happier moment!
In the end, after a very frustrating conversation he agreed that I should stay because I promised him that I would learn so much during the convention, make lots of important connections, learn to monetize (love that word!) my blog and probably get some sponsors!
Well, ugh. It turns out that I had so much fun that I did not make it to a single session, meeting or speaker. I did go to a lot of parties, the details are a little fuzzy to me. The people I met, while a lot of fun, also all ended up having blogs with a similar following to mine (2 page views a week, more or less; one from my mom and one from my dad). Also, no sponsor.
I may also have implied that I had purchased a nonrefundable round-trip ticket (I bought one way) because i thought with the money all my roommates would reimburse me for the room before they left, I would have enough to get home. Well, I woke up this morning and everyone was gone, no cash or checks left for the room and when I went to the front desk the room charges were all still on the card I found in Röbert’s sock drawer! And someone had bought a lot of minibar candies and room service and watched porn! OMG!
So now I need to try to get some sponsors before I go and I don’t know how that works.
#golf #titleist OMG! #sponsor Maybe someone will at least send me some free golf balls to give to Röbert or something!
