Let the drinking commence…

I’ve arrived at a “summit” for CIOs/CTOs in a mountain resort. Because I’m new to my job and new to the area, in about an hour I’ll go to the reception to meet a bunch of people for the first time. I will be nervous and there will be free alcohol. The possibilities are endless….

Themes for the summit (other than schmoozing) are e-Discovery and privacy. Nothing particularly new–or so it seems.

Meanwhile, I’m all set for the golf match tomorrow. I’ve taken a month’s worth of lesson and am now known at the driving range. Most important, I have 3 new skorts. My handicap? Sometimes I speak without thinking.

    Do you improve with lessons? I tried them once and after two weeks I was worse off than when I started….than again maybe my pro just sucked. Yeah, that sounds right

    Well, well, well. You’ve finally embraced the Dark Side. Their victory is now complete.

    Golf is my handicap, or my copilot. I’m on my way home from a convocation of educators interested in technology held pretty close to the ocean. It is hot. A familiar name echoed from a podium, but it was unembodied. At one juncture “they” kept referring to “IT” as though it was some kind of antagonist. I did get to play 36 holes before the meeting, making the travel worthwhile.

    Improve? Lessons? I thought I was doing great and then I hit the horrible wet course today and realized the nightmare that is golf. Their victory is complete, indeed. It’s like all that stuff I was doing with my coach was a complete joke. Driving range? HAHAHAH. Swing practice? HAHAHAHAH. Get on the green and get your ass kicked. Golf, you cruel mistress, I will be back.

    Filbert, I’m sorry I’m not where you are–I had a conflict and chose the option closer to my new home…
