Last time I was at Ignite I was anything but nervous. No where near knots. As a matter of fact I was down right chipper to attend the event. I had a chance to sit back and relax on one of the comfy sofas in the balcony with friends and family and survey the events at hand.
I watched closely each presentation and, as much as I could from the second floor, I observed what went on in between. What I saw then was what I usually see at Portland Tech events, a lot of love and family and gushy stuff. Everyone smiling and laughing and being proud. I was smiley too! Look at this lovely photo of donpdonp and I at the last Ignite, taken by Aaron Hockley.
If you can’t tell from that photo, I had fun, a ton of it… But I wasn’t nearly as excited then as I am for Ignite Portland tonight.
It’s going to be awesome… as long as I don’t faint or anything before 7:20 ish when I take the stage.

You’ll be fine!!
Damn! I thought it was last week. Best of luck! I know you’ll knock em silly.
You’ll do great! I can’t wait to hear your talk.
(on an unrelated note, I found an exit sign in a photo. It’s right up there)
very excited for you- good luck and have fun.
Lindy, Thank you
Aaron, I realized it was the one I was thinking of when the Bagdad tweeted it… it was too late ;)
BW: I can’t believe you had the date of something all the way across the country wrong. How could you… What, are you busy with a life of your own? I think not.
Sybil: I hope you mean fine as in, “Damn my bitch is fine” because if not then I feel like I’m not doing your love justice.
Good luck tonight. You’ll be awesome! And congratulation, too.
Are you holding a switchblade? Worried about DonPDonP dragging you off and making you mow the lawn w/o shoes?
Thinking of you baby, only love,and up thoughts.
Thanks again for gift, it got here today.
Well, you look GREAT! Have a fabulous time.
I was just nervously cleaning my house…that’s the same as rehearsing, right?
