Today is Day 4 of the 6-day seminar and things are going quite well (knock on wood). We are running out of a few vital supplies (notably certificates and t-shirts), but replacements should arrive tomorrow. All in all, this is probably the most low-stress seminar I've ever worked on, despite the fact that attendance figures just keep rising.
It's been EXTREMELY hot all week in a need-a-clean-bra-every-day kind of way (sorry guys, but you gals will know exactly what I mean). I've been wearing pants and jeans all week, but I made a quick shopping run out to Gordman's yesterday and picked up two pairs of cargo shorts from the young men's section (women's shorts are too short!). I'm wearing a lovely khaki pair today that's accented with orange trim and came complete with a compass clipped to the side in case I get turned around in the conference parking lot. Actually, it might come in handy on my canoe trip next weekend, you never know.
One thing that's notable about these seminars is that they provide many opportunities for socializing. On Tuesday night I had three pints of pale ale, which caused me to exhibit red, glassy eyes all day yesterday even though I felt fine. There are parties tonight and tomorrow night, too, so I'll have to try to pace myself better from here on out. I also changed to a new pair of contacts 'cause once you get bar smoke in your eyes, that's pretty much all she wrote for disposable lenses.
Well, I've used up my little block of free time. I'm off to pick up another Jeepload of seminar attendees and take them to their training location. Have a great Thursday!
