I can nicker too, but I'm not nearly as embarrassed about that
Please don't ski with your kid on a leash
I firmly believe in ghostly figments of my imagination

I outlined everything...tips, tricks, good places to eat and a picture of what crowds look like first thing in the morning and what they will look like at 1 pm, when most of them would show up after sleeping in. When they saw the picture, I heard..."Are you serious? There is THAT much of a difference?"
While I did get an eyeroll for the powerpoint, others thanked me and said that they had no idea. Two of them asked me to email the powerpoint so that they could make their own notes. I do know that it was helpful for me. I am no longer stressing about whether or not they will have a good time. They have been informed and warned...so now it is up to them what they will do with it.
Oh my god! A power point! And here I've just been typing up memos. Why didn't I think of this before!

(I am totally serious about this. Especially for my tentative 2015 Grand Gathering.)
