AWP Conference Highlights

1) Eating mint chocolate chip ice cream from the carton at Jenny Lui's apartment after long days of paying attention nearly constantly for numerous hours
2) Chicago's public transportation system, which is shockingly easy to navigate and comes complete with talking buses that tell you when you've reached the stop you want
3) The radio writing segment, in which I listened to a clip of a man who swears our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ performs many miracles, including providing the faithful with magical gold fillings. The Lord also, according to this man, can whiten your teeth. All in all, he saves you thousands in dental bills.
4) Meeting Gretchen Legler, who rocks
5) Then meeting Michelle Morano, who read about being pregnant and traveling and then traveling with an infant
6) Going to the bus stop after my work was done today and discovering this sign, modified not by me but by another concerned citizen who clearly shares my values and world view:
