Perl blog post #34
For the past week and a half or so, I’ve been in Orlando with the Larger Animal and the Smaller Animal. Last Sunday in particular, I was exploring The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios, so I missed a blog post for the first time in quite a while. Sorry about that.
Part of the reason I was in Orlando was to attend this year’s YAPC, which you can read about over on the Other Blog. I also spent some time with an old friend who lives about an hour and half to two hours north of Orlando, in the Silver Springs area. Silver Springs is where you can take a glass-bottomed boat ride, which my grandparents took me on a few times as a child, so that was particularly awesome getting to share that with my children. (If I know you personally, I’ve probably sent you a link to the many many pics I took while I was there. I’ve just added the final pic and tweaked everything to perfection, but Dropbox apparently hates me at the moment. It may take a couple of days before the final pics are there. If you know me personally and I haven’t sent you the link, feel free to email me and ask.)
Traveling this year was particularly hideous, although much better on the way back than the way out. Almost makes me want to stay home next year. But I probably shan’t.
Anyway, read all about the conference if you like. If you don’t like, you’ll have to wait until next week for further excitement here.
