No dentures here, bra. Missing teeth, sure. But no dentures!

I have been around it many times but never attended. I have relatives that live in Austin and found myself caught up in the traffic a time or two.

I was there last year but only because I was in town on business. It was weird to see all the usual haunts taken over by folks from out of town.

But it is good to see someplace becoming a 'convention' destination besides Las Vegas. Not that there's anything wrong with Vegas; it just seems like every convention on Earth is held there and it is nice to see something different now and then.

I had the opportunity to go for my former employer a year or two ago. I was torn on it - on one hand its SXSW paid for, but on the other I would have been repping health insurance all weekend which is my least favorite thing in the world. Ended up not going.
