Today I am was in Leawood, KS for a demonstration. Actually 2 demonstrations, one first thing in the morning and one at the end of the day. I don’t want to talk about it.
Before the demo I checked out a shopping plaza that was up the street and between demo 1 and demo 2 I went over to the plaza and hung out at Panera Breads to use the free wireless that was there. So I was somewhat productive in that I caught up on my web comics, replied to the comments that people are leaving here, I love that more people are finding this blog and commenting, thanks. I was going to read and watch my iPod but didn’t get around to it.
I left Panera and had lunch at On The Border. On the Border sort of like Chilis and just about as good as a chin restaurant can be, that is like Chilis. I had a tortilla soup and a steak quesadilla. They make there own chips and the salsa was tasty. I watched an episode or two of GeekBrief.tv and then I drove around. There were quite a few different metal sculptures around this shopping plaza and I had seen the skateboard one early this morning. I went back to take today’s PAD.
What is funny about this is that I am not the biggest fan of the skateboarder. It is true, I get very annoyed with the kids on out street, our neighbors actually who constantly jump up and down slamming their skateboards all over the ground, repeating unsuccessfully to Ollie and most of the time land on their butts. Anyway I don’t mind watching skateboarding in movies or playing video games but the local skateboard talent just gets on my nerves. I did like the sculptures around the shopping plaza however and decided that I could get a decent angle to just capture the sculpture and the sky and clouds behind it to get a good PAD.
After my second demonstration – two hours after it was supposed to go off, I don’t want to talk about it – I went back to my hotel to change.
I stayed over near the airport so I could get a good night’s sleep and head over there at a decent hour without having to worry about traffic. I had also been here before and I liked the area and knew where things like the movie theater and important stuff like that, were located.
I changed quickly and headed over to the Smokehouse BBQ that was down the street. This was a rather upscale BBQ joint with cloth napkins, It just felt wrong. The food however was delicious, I got a platter of burnt ends and pork ribs. I was only able to eat half before I was very full. I also tried a couple Corn Nuggets as an appetizer, they were interesting. I walked around that shopping plaza for a while and then headed back to the hotel.
Which is where I am now, updating blogs, my map on Google, reading the Sasquatch graphic novel I picked up Saturday and catching up to speed on the Heroes Graphic Novels online. I haven’t read any yet but Allison says that they are pretty interesting. Oh and as a bonus I took a picture of the pig statue that was outside the Smokehouse BBQ.
