Business trip

So I'm away for my yearly meeting.  Last year it was in beautiful Las Vegas, this year it's in scenic Atlantic City.  I'm treating my hotel like a resort out of the country in a questionable neighborhood: Do not leave the hotel.  This is my first time in a while being away from my wife for work, she came last year.

This is my second yearly meeting with this company, I've been to 4 with my last company.  The environment is a bit different, instead of dealing with the police for noise and alcohol complaints I'm going to sleep early and trying to figure out what to do with my free time.  I remember one meeting with my old company we went straight to a day of meetings from the bar, truly epic.  They split the region into 3 groups this year, not really much to do... I guess that's a good thing given my past years.

Views from my room:

This guy puts his name on everything, I don't know if I'd trust his haircare products:

These meetings are all business, numbers, charts... Fun stuff!  At least it's a few days out of the lab and away from customer problems (in person, my email is still on fire!)  My wife came last year and probably partied more than me, I wish she was here this year but I was flat left for some little blog conference thing.
