Bad stuff: All the things mentioned in previous posts, plus the fact that my ability to watch "The Producers" on the flight up was apparently a fluke. Tried watching "Finding Nemo" on the flight home, but failed; wasn't room to open the laptop wide enough.

Good stuff: I got to see the old MFF hotel one last time, I got a sneak peek at the new hotel, I met a folksinger who wrote his own last verse to "Puff the Magic Dragon", I got to meet a bunch of friends again, and I got some good art and a few interesting pictures.

Was the good stuff enough to make you glad you went in the first place?

Yes, but if I had to do it all over again I'd do a lot of things differently. For starters, my original plan was for this trip to be a road trip, which would have been a lot cheaper, and I would've had a working CD player!

But yes, there were a few good serendipities and learning experiences on this trip. I was looking for a Subway when I found Potbelly Sandwiches, and even though I later found out there was a Subway only a block or two away, if I hadn't gone to Potbelly I wouldn't have met Jeff Wolf (the folksinger mentioned above).

I pass a Potbelly every workday. Maybe I'll look into it.
