Off to the SBL International Meeting!

Posted by NT Wrong on July 3, 2008

Mrs Wrong kindly snapped a photo of me, as I was pretending to board the plane at Raleigh-Durham International. That’s me, partially obscured by the man in the red shirt.

Whose idea was it to have a July conference in the Southern Hemisphere? Don’t they realize that it’s midwinter down there? And is New Zedland a real place? I thought it was just some fictional land made up by JRR Tolkien.

Anyway … while at the SBL International Conference, I promise to share digital photos from my new camera. And, I’ll provide passing comments on any papers of interest that I attend.

    One immediately recognizes that the photo is dated because everyone is wearing their shoes, no one has taken out their laptops, and nary a TSA uniform is to be found.

    Oh, and by the by, did you realize that when one types in “ntwrong” to google it comes back with this suggestion:

    Did you mean: not working

    You’re such a skeptic, Iyov. 🙂

    But this is approximately what it will look like when I do board the plane – except for the laptops and added security.

    Kia Ora: We are Aotearoa – the land of the long white cloud, a land of myths and legends … or a mythical land. Hopefully you’ll have a nice dream while you’re here. The flight from Heathrow is the worst reality possible – especially the uphill one back.

    Heathrow? Heathrow??

  6. steph said

    Yup – it’s the only direct route springing board from there to here. 🙂

    Are you a ‘Kiwi’, then Steph? Does this mean you’re small and furry? And green?

  9. steph said

    Not furry – I’m feathery. And I’m nocturnal and I can’t fly. I wish I could.:-)

    And yes I’m green!
