Friday Recap: AquaNet Edition
Boy, that feels weird to write. But it’s Friday, lads and ladies. And this is a recap. So I guess it’s still accurate. You’ll have to forgive me, I’m a little out of sorts today. I think I’m coming down with a cold. I’ve been ODing on Vitamin C since I woke up and the other writers periodically dump disinfectant over me and my desk.
Why can’t I be like these crazy healthy ladies over on CNN? Apparently they never get sick. Hmm, tip one is to get a massage? Maybe that’s my problem. Does anyone know if my insurance covers this? It’s preventative care!
Speaking of health issues, everything’s coming up rosy on Twitter as people change their avatars pink to support Breast Cancer Awareness. No jokes here, just a reminder for all our readers that neither youth nor gender exempts you from getting breast cancer.
You know what else is in October? Halloween! I’m so excited! As you all know, Halloween’s big around here. No, I’m not going with another Batgirl costume this year. Stop asking, seriously. Perhaps I’ll take Keri Morgret’s suggestion and win the geekiest costume award when I show up in my snazzy 404 page costume? [Update: The writers decided to go as the Misfits for Halloween! How very scandalous! -Virginia] Break out the AquaNet!
Something I’m totally not doing? Hanging fake tears from my eyes. Ew! Is it just me or is it a terrible idea to put wire in your eyes?
Before we can get to Halloween, though, we’ve got a lot to do! Next week is SMX East.
What’s that you say? You’re not ready for the big bad city? Don’t worry! Streko’s put together a great survival guide to NYC for SMX. Just what all the first time SEMs are going to need. Print it out, laminate it, keep it in your pocket. Just stay safe out there. We want you to make it back home.
While you’re at SMX, keep an eye out for the BC team. Virginia’s going to be our roving reporter. Watch out for her on the floor between sessions, she’ll be looking for people to come on the radio show and give away some pearls of wisdom. Bruce is speaking in the Ask the SEOs session on Wednesday. Make sure you wish him a very happy birthday. Don’t bother with a gift; you’ll never top what we got him: a new SEOToolset.
Have a good weekend, everyone!
