10 Reasons To Be Happy For Not Attending MIX ’08

Filed Under Humor

It appears everyone and their sister is at MIX 08 this year. Unfortunately, I will not be attending, alas the MIX conference will have to scramble for a new keynote speaker for yet another year.

Here are my Top 10 Reasons why I am happy to be staying at home:

10. The drinks are significantly cheaper in my closet

9.   I am not all that interested in computers, software, or the internet

8.   I despise gambling ever since I lost $200 last week playing blackjack

7.   Nothing ever good comes out of conferences but free swag

6.   I didn’t want to deprive my employer of sitting on his mountain of cash

5.   Keynotes by Guy Kawasaki are historical lame because he knows nothing about business or making money

4.   6.1° F is much better than 61° F

3.   The Blue Man Group scare me…with their fun…and music…and dancing…

2.   You don’t have to flash $100 bills to excite the strippers in Fargo, ND (they are happy you braved the weather to come out)

1.   The secretive altnetpursefight author and I can now finally hangout together in public without worrying about being seen
