Yesterday afternoon, one of my clients called to invite me to come along to dinner tonight at Palomino, followed by a Dallas Mavericks (basketball) game. An underwriter and his broker were taking him out and it was nice of him to invite me along…it was fun. The game was fairly uneventful and then got quite exciting in the last few minutes of the 3rd period, and the Mavs ended up winning by 20 points.
Also yesterday, my boss decided I should attend an asbestos conference in DC next month. The host hotel is the Ritz-Carlton. We have a client that is also going and it was also decided that I should stay at the same hotel. Seems like a waste of money to me, but at least it is being wasted on me. We stay at La Quinta when we’re in Houston but when “people” are around, I guess we get to make up for it.
James & I are giving consideration to going to Australia this summer. He needs to go back there to get a new visa so he can change schools to a four-year university. It’s time to move onwards. Anyway, I’m trying to build enough miles so we can fly business class. 16 hrs in coach ain’t fun. I’ve decided to route myself to DC via Miami. Almost twice as many miles for the same fare 🙂
