When you were a kid, did your parents make you get dressed up when you rode on a plane? Mine didn't, but I kind of feel like that now as I get ready to fly to Dallas, TX to spend two days at Samsung Mobile. Do I wear a suit? A suit with no tie? A button down and fancy pants? Flip-flops, shorts, and my Foo Fighters T-shirt?
It'll be fine, I know. I'm only going for one night, and I already know most of the people I'll be meeting with, so it should be fun. And I've never been to Texas so far as I can remember. Too bad I won't have more time, as I'd like to have a few words with T.O. and Jerry Jones. Not that I'm a Cowboys fan, really, but after having watched Hard Knocks on HBO this year I feel like the Cowboys are letting me down a bit with their play as of late.
Anyway ... Who knows what treasures await me at Samsung Mobile HQ. I'll report back to you next week. Meantime, I have to pack. I think I'll take my netbook, my iPhone, and the new Ethan Canin book. And, oh yeah, I should maybe take the AT&T Epix to play with, since I'm going to visit Samsung Mobile and all.
Maybe they'll take me for some real Texas BBQ. Mmm, BBQ ...
