7:30 a.m.: The iPhone goes off with the "Piano Riff" for the alarm. This is about the only time that I don't adore my iPhone. But then I look at how cool it is and the fact that it lets me play eight Scrabble games with people all over OKC at once, and I forget it.
7:32 a.m.: Got up and did the morning deed of writing my name in the snow as a guy.
Except I didn't go out in the snow. Too cold.
7:35 a.m.: Get a huge cup of water to chug. Learned a while back that you get dehydrated while sleeping.
8:40 a.m.: Tie or no tie? Decisions in life are hard.
9:06 a.m.: Headed out the door to the first client meeting of the day. New client who wants some e-commerce marketing done. Booya. As I am walking out the door, I get a call from one of my poker buddies. Can I make it Friday night? Sure - good guy-bonding type. Bodily noises will ensue.
9:10 a.m.: Will listen to NPR, and I might learn something during the drive.
9:21 a.m.: Look at this weather. 50+. I should lay out and work on my tan.
11:30 a.m.: Back at home. Time for some grub and that first cup of coffee. Hopped onto Twitter to check the inbox there. Nothing urgent. Shut that down before it sucks the life out of me.
12:36 p.m.: Invoicing the new client from yesterday for marketing services. Yay. Money is good.
12:55 p.m.: Just called a client that I was referred to by another client. They should have been expecting my call but were clueless as to who I was and why I was calling. Grrrr. Let's get it together, people.
1 p.m.: Talked to the daughter real quick to see if she wants to go with me later so we can wash all of the funk off of our car. Nothing like a little father/ daughter bonding time with high-powered car-washing hoses.
1:03 p.m.: Heading down to Leadership Square to show someone the office space that I need to sublease. If I am lucky, I may get some office mates. Fine by me - as long as they don't listen to country and western. That is not music - it is just whining.
1:31 p.m.: $@@")(; had to go back home and get the office keys. Different key rings. Oh, well. I like driving up and down 122nd for fun and games.
1:47 p.m.: Did I just see someone peeing out in the open at Sheridan and Walker? Oh, my eyes!
2:49 p.m.: Ack! Stuck in traffic at 40 and 44. What the heck? Where are we? L.A.?
3:15 p.m.: Finally back to home office after office showing Downtown. Probably not going to move in. Boo.
3:21 p.m.: Hop on Twitter and make sure everybody is happy. Looking forward to IgniteOKC.
3:43 p.m.: Had a conversation with my daughter about washing the cars. She has to fit me in between her three social appointments tonight. She is quite the butterfly. Reminds me of me at her age. Except I was a guy.
3:45 p.m.: Pull up the IgniteOKC slides again to practice some more. I realize it is going to be hard to keep a straight face with the two slides that say "Be the Godfather" and "Keep It Deliverance Free: No Networking Inbreeding."
5:10 p.m.: Adding a listing of 50 states by heart to a client's site.
5:17 p.m.: Just got off the phone with a guy in Tulsa who gave me two spare IgniteOKC tickets. Sweet!
5:19 p.m.: Just had a cool conversation with a wrong number that I left a voicemail on. She called me back and we had a pleasant chat about my screw-up. OKC has some nice people.
5:46 p.m.: Spent a half hour going over my IgniteOKC slides again. I have five main points, and I got creative with the 15-second time limit per slide by using the same slides over and over, back to back. Hopefully I won't get censored from future Ignites. I read the rules; it is legal.
7:13 p.m.: Just got back from washing the TwitterMobile in preparation for the Bartlesville drive in the a.m. My baby is clean!
11:05 p.m.: Taking laptop in back quiet room and practice presentation five more times standing. Mentally prepare for points in case slides go out.
1:52 a.m.: Finally in bed after reviewing presentation again for the morning and loading up car. Put backup of presentation online in case laptop blows up on I-35 to Tulsa. Our cat, Smokey, was waiting for me in bed so she could lie on my chest and interfere with this e-mail.
