Inaugural NZ Girl Geek Dinner

Bookings are going well for the first dinner in New Zealand on the 22nd November. I'm still unbelievably nervous with everything crossed hoping for a fantastic event and I can only see that feeling getting worse the closer we get to the 22nd November. www.girlgeekdinners.co.nz if you want more info.

If our Silverlight presenters can't make this first dinner then I get to present on Scrum which should be fun but will add to the nerves even more. I'm pretty sure that either talk will prove to be interesting for all attending as they both have a lot of fun elements to get across.

Now all that I need to do is get one of those personalities that don't eat when nervous instead of my current personality which is a nerves = pizza binge personality...mmm... pizza.....

Princess Foo Foo

It appears I'm as much of a frivolous princess as my cartoon alter ego Princess Foo Foo in Voopa The Goolash. I've been wondering why I haven't been paid yet for this acting job and it appears that sending an invoice would have been a useful thing to do - what an airhead... brain too full of organizing Girl Geek Dinners and writing wizards for life assurance applications it seems.
