Sara Reyes | 5 Reasons to Get Out Of Town
Saturdays with Sara / March 20, 2010

One thing I learned at South By Southwest (SXSW) is to occasionally have blog posts with a number in the title. So, being I finally got home after an event-filled eight days, yes, I counted them, and thought, why there is my blog title! Woo Hoo! I originally wanted “Dead To Me” but thought definitely too negative. I’d really rather concentrate on the positive this morning. So here goes: Five Reasons to Get Out of Town. 1. Anticipation is to be savored It’s exciting to anticipate the journey. Sometimes the thought of leaving is so thrilling and adrenaline pumping it makes or breaks the entire trip. Be wise and temper the enthusiasm if you’re emotional, otherwise let ‘er rip! 2. Make New Friends Don’t be afraid to talk to strangers. If you need to give yourself an out, take a page out of Gwen’s playbook and “be the hostess” the one who performs the introductions, makes sure no one is standing alone, put out your hand, shake and introduce yourself.

Heidi’s report from the Leverage CON-con

Traveling to the West Coast from Texas means even though it’s 7:30 am here, it feels like I’ve slept in for two hours. As I reached the lobby around 9 am, they were giving out tickets for the registration line, once they opened at 10 am. For the intervening hour, I roamed the hotel taking pictures. The Governor Hotel( is filled with amazing architectural accents which are different in every room. The extra tall ceilings make for an extra level of stairs, but once those elevators fill up this weekend, the stairway is going to be my main access route (and justification for having dessert). Once I got through registration and signed up for the set tour Saturday morning, it was time to stand in line for the autographs and photo ops. In the sad eventuality that this is the only…

That, and enticing men into arousing, exciting and, okay, perilous sex (for him).

Now she’s in Vegas on the tail of the witch who dared to steal from her clan. She’s going to get to the unsavory harlot through the woman’s ex-fiancé, and nothing about their charged encounters will be shallow, quick or friendly.
