Hey there. I'm a bit grumpy today.
Today is my 40th birthday. Happy birthday to me!!
That's not why I'm grumpy.
I'm grumpy because all week I've been fighting some stomach bug that has left me nauseous and with a very upset tummy. Oh, and tomorrow I leave for the CFAS conference which is being held in Quebec City. I don't want to go to Quebec City. I've been there before when I was 11 years old. I don't care if its historic and picturesque. I don't like French food. I don't feel like being humiliated by how poor my French skills are after not using them for so long (at one time I was basically bilingual).
If I have to go to La Belle Provence, I would rather go to Montreal.
On the bright side, I usually have a good time at this conference. I'm presenting a poster again based on the research we presented last year, which at that time was incomplete. I'm also staying at a very nice hotel, and as any parent knows, a few nights alone in a hotel can be a very good thing.
So wish me luck...on finding some good NOT French restaurants...and on not sulking too much on my 40th BIRTHDAY WEEKEND...and I'll be back on Monday.
