    One thing I have learned about Chicago. This is not a coffee-centric town. Miss my coffee places. #coffeeproblems #chicago #ncmc12

    Just saw a guy walking his dog. The man was wearing flip flops and a trench coat. I didn’t see any other clothes.

    @AmyAMeyer Al was still in bed at that time. And I don’t know where he’d have gotten the dog.

    Have no fear, chainsaw conservationists! We were NOT throwing running chainsaws into a tumble dryer last night. It was only snoring.#ncmc12

    #ncmc12 Friday aphorism attempt: Being a decent journalist does not make you interesting. Being interesting makes you a decent journalist.

    Do you think #ncmc12 Got Walter Cronkite as a guest speaker? #internetsoslowwewentbackintime

    @EvanSykes tried to wave back at you but worried that the speaker would think I was inappropriately raising my hand.

    In a room full of journalists, you’d think some of the attendees would ask questions that weren’t pointless. #ncmc12

    My view of a cool sunrise from Chicago. Time to buckle down and get hit by some journalism knowledge. #ncmc12

  34. The guys thought they’d beat the expensive restaurants and buy a gallon of milk and some cereal. Then the reality of fridge usage hit them back at their rooms:

    $25 to use the fridge in your room or, conveniently, $25 to have another fridge sent up. #wemacguyveredacooleroutoficeandatrashcan #ncmc12

    Felt like I gained a lot of knowledge here at #ncmc12. Thinking of the improvements I can make. Hopefully there will be big things to come!
