C3 In the Big D: Day 1 Recap

20 02 2009

A few of the highlights from day 1:

– Today was Pastor Steven’s birthday. We all went up to his room to sing him happy birthday outside his door. Like Christmas carolers.

– We’re staying in a hotel that has a small city inside of it. With real trees. And a river. And a Kinko’s.

– We all got a free pair of TOMS shoes at the conference. I got plain white ones because of my boyish good looks. And I asked nicely.

– Ed Young did an Axl Rose impression and also said he’d pay top dollar for John Maxwell’s teeth because they can bite a man’s arm off.

– Bil with one L Cornielius spoke great words about the importance of praying for the work we do, rather than just merely doing the work we do.

– Ben Young used words that I haven’t heard since Mr. Angstadt’s Philosophy & Ethics class.

– Jentzen Franklin is part TV evangelist, part conference speaker and all Georgia. Fantastic.

– Joybatka and I committed crimes of the heart in a photobooth.

– I ate at my first Brazilian steakhouse. I piled my plate high with beef, pork and chicken shaved right off a skewer. I was not disappointed.

– I saw Chunks without a shirt on. Again.

– Meredith and I represented CS4 well in Balderdash: Pastor Steven edition.

– I’m sleeping on a rollaway twin bed at the foot of Wade’s queen bed. I feel like an indentured servant.
