The joys of Writer's Conference food.

Saturday, April 25, 2009
Wow. Seriously, writer's conference food has always lacked something. Sometimes I've felt like I've been eating rabbit food (I understand if you're a vegetarian. Heck, I applaude you. I however, am not. It comes from growing up on a cattle ranch. And the fact that I'm weak.) Other times I eat my 3 bites for 10 bucks and wonder where the nearest fast food place is. Other times it's just been . . . redundant ("Really, we're having the EXACT same thing for three meals in a row? REALLY?).

This weekend makes my other experiences look wimpy. The food tasted pretty good. It was the stomach cramps, vomiting, and . . . um . . . well you get the idea. We had a two hour drive home that took more like 3 hours (with my writing buddies mocking me the whole time).

As a side note, I would be more than willing to pay a little more money for my gas if the clerks would clean the bathrooms. There's nothing more joyous than kneeling before a throne that makes you even more nauseous (and I didn't think that was possible).

I swear, from now on, I'm bringing a sack lunch. It's cheaper. And much safer.


  1. Oh, wow, I'm so sorry to hear about you're getting sick. Hmmm, maybe I don't want to go to those conferences and eat. I assume the conference itself was good?

  1. The conference was pretty good. After a while, it all starts to get redundant. I'm going to post more about it over the next few weeks.

  1. yikes! no fun at all...i hope you gained something from the event... hope you've fully recovered.

  1. Alex: I finally ate something this afternoon (after 24 hours of nothing) and had a nap. Doing much better.
    I did learn some things. Check back for them!

  1. I'm so glad you're feeling better. Too true about conference food! Well, at least I don't have to cook it. ;)

    Yikes, this wasn't the Storymaker conference, right? I'm sure I'd have known if you were there. I thought the food was great. I'm so sorry, though, yuck.

  1. Josi: No, it wasn't storymakers. I wanted to go to that one, but they had one in American Fork for only 25. We're a little tight after all my daughter's doctor visits. How was it anyway?

    It was awesome! I'm still on a bit of a high from it. I'm glad the other conference was good, in content anyway :-)
