SIL was magnificent

SIL presented her paper today and of course, was magnificent.  A "conference" of approx 50 people - half architects and half librarians.  An interesting combination.  Emory University lovely.  The Aussie contingent consisted of four, a couple of Canadians, a couple of Germans, one English and the rest US.  There was also a group of Chinese that appeared for five mins in the morning, disappeared for the rest of the day and then mysteriously re-appeared at dinner.  At dinner everyone was talking about how they were getting to San Juan on Friday and of course SIL had NO idea of her itinerary.  Back at the hotel SIL checks her ticket only to discover that she is not going direct but via Miami and gets to her destination at 23.30.  Grrrrrrr.  When will SIL learn to check the bloody detail!!  The other topics of conversation were USA's politicians' total inability to act like grown ups and how the Aussie $ plummets just as OVOOO, STB and SIL toddle off overseas.  Typical.
