Saturday: My Steam is Gone

I slept in until 8 on Saturday. Got my pitch ready, and hung out until it was time to do it at ten. Frankly, it was all a blur, and a bit on the odd side. I didn’t know it then, but it was the beginning of the end for me. I got through the pitch, I’m not entirely certain I got a request, but Dana says it was, so I guess it was. LOL. My mind was in such a fog. I popped into the Inspirational Spotlight, which was good, and then hit some more signings.

After that, we went to the luncheon, and I kept fogging out, although I did FINALLY get to see my beloved Cathie Linz, who is one of the sweetest women you’ll ever meet. I was so funked out that we left, and I went to check boards and hang out. We hit a couple more signings, and then my PA and I went to the world of Coca Cola, and it was amazing. They had a place to try coke from all around the world, and we decided that we rather liked all of it, particularly the New Guinea one, which has passion fruit in it. YUM!

We walked through the underground and then took the subway back. I felt a headache coming on, but assumed it was the heat and a need to eat. Got to the room, where Dana and Jo were eating room service (the rats), so my PA and I went to the sports bar and got dinner. They were so disorganized. They ended up losing our check, so we didn’t have to pay. We got back to our room, and I just felt funny. I tried to get ready, but my head really hurt, and I started losing my mental acuity. Yep, it was a migraine. Had I realized it when I felt odd at the pitch, I’d have been able to take some meds and feel better, but I just thought I was tired. D’OH!

I ended up missing the RITAs. I scared poor Dana, who thought I was having a stroke, because I couldn’t put a sentence together. Nope, just a migraine. I rested, took lots of drugs, and then decided to get dressed and at least make an appearance at the after party. My PA followed me around and helped me, so I was able to say goodbye to folks. I tried doing an after party trip to the bar, but I started fogging out again, so we went back to the room. I think we chatted a bit, but I don’t remember.
