Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday
These are the kinds of days that just run together. Wake up, go to work, come home, have dinner, read, sit and watch tv, go to bed and get up and do it all over again.
Thursday – Day 8 in Utah
Checked out of the hotel at noon. Drove to the Great Salt Lakes which was breath taking. Then went back into the city and drove into the mountains to sight see. Checked out a few parks and the capital and visitor center, but mostly just drove around looking at all the nice homes up in the mountains.
Went to the airport at 6. Check in and Security were a breeze with no line. Had dinner and then only had to wait about an hour for the plane. The plane was a newer model that played music while loading and unloading, and had TV’s on the back of the seats for you to play games and watch movies. Even the emergency announcements were played via video on the TV instead of a flight attendant going through the motions.
I spent the 3 hour flight working on jokes and listening to music. Best plane I’ve ever been on.
I was home and in bed by 1am!
Wednesday – Day 7 in Utah
Woke up with my left foot inflamed again. Had to go back to the convention center at 8am to tear down and pack up the booth and carpet. Was done by noon and dropped a sales rep off at the airport. Went back to the hotel to nap and put an ice pack on my foot. Took some Advil and woke up at 4 feeling a bit better. Had barbecue for dinner then went to the comedy club to do open mic. It was the first night of the Golden Spike Comedy festival so I got to see an opening showcase which was neat. Open Mic didn’t start until 8 and I didn’t get to go up until close to 9. And only got to do 2 minutes because of the number of people who signed up. Was back at my hotel and in bed by 9:30pm.
Tuesday – Day 6 in Utah
Last day of the show. Slow day. Ended at 2. Was packed up by 3 and back at the hotel for a nap and free dinner in the lobby. Pasta and bread and chocolate chip cookies.
Met the lead singer of Neon Trees and had no idea who they were, only to discover later I actually had one of their songs on my iPod!
