Back from the SAAs

Pretty exhausted, thought I'm actually in better shape than I am after most meetings. Don't know how I feel about Sacramento, but the meetings themselves were pretty good. Blogistically, I was really bummed out not to be able to attend the Blogging Archaeology session which ran (of course) exactly at the same time as the session I was in. On the other hand, I did get to have a nice lunch with John Hawks, engage in a roast pig-side chat at the Cotsen reception with Mike Smith, and get the chance to meet Colleen Morgan, three of my favorite bloggers, along with a long-time commenter on this very blog, so that was all very nice. If you want a flavor of what went down at the meetings, you can track down some Twitter feeds of the whole thing by going here.

I'm feeling revved up after these meetings, so let's see how productive I can be until I jet out to the Paleos in Minneapolis a week from now...

Sounds divine.

Divine might be a bit strong, but the SAAs are always a good time :). They're like a shot of archaeology directly into your veins at the end of the academic year to get you thru the last few weeks before you head out to the field!

Ah, the pig roast was pretty good, but the beef roast was divine.

Who knew archaeologists could throw such a splashy party?

It was good to meet you too,
