chicago. a post written for yesterday.

i'm back in utah for a week!  i flew home in a barbie plane and my flight was late:( and we had quite the little journey to get to the plane.  i have the worlds shortest legs and i have never been so uncomfortable on a flight before!  the seats didn't recline.  however, our flight attendant named Suzy Q (did you see that, i used capital letters) was freaking hilarious.  laugh out loud funny i tell ya.

anyhooter,  i fell into bed this morning just after 1:30 and was rudely awakened by my alarm five hours later so i could get up for work.  meh.  i may look a little haggard today.  i have spent a good amount of my time today filling out all of the required online surveys for each course i took so i can receive my education credits.  if i don't get them in on time my certification will lapse and then i am royally screwed!

i learned much.  my main focus was pediatrics.  i think i took every course they offered that involved pediatric imaging.  i took so many courses over the four days that i really didn't get to do much else.

i stayed at the intercontinental on michigan ave. i only treated myself to breakfast once.  

i ran down to the navy pier and then on this trail that goes along the lake every morning except for monday. it's quite fabulous for a visitor because it is well populated with runners and bikers early in the morning.

wandering the streets at lunch time i found a thai place calleddao.  i ended up eating there a couple of times for lunch because i thought it was so good.  also ate at india house.   and the purple pig.  and fox and obel is fantastic as well. i wish we had one here in salt lake.

on saturday i had one hour between courses so slipped up to my room and threw on my rain jacket and tennis shoes and walked down to millennium park.  it was a warm, rainy, grey day.  the fall leaves on the ground looked almost fluorescent to me.

at moran we have ordered a 110 degree lens to attach to our heidelberg spectralis so we can do non contact wide angle angiograms.  i got to check it out at the exhibit. and we had a good time with the 3d glasses too! i also got to check out the image viewing software from sonomed escalon we hope to get.  it is pretty amazing.

anyway, that about sums it up.  have a rad wednesday.



ps  i went on a pain free run last night!  what the what?  i was so happy.  that is the first one in a very long time.  i don't get it.
