So I guess it's a good thing that's where I am as of this afternoon! I'm here for the 4th Annual West Coast Life Sciences Meeting Management Forum, a conference we co-sponsor with The Center for Business Intelligence. It's held at the beautiful Hilton San Diego Bayfront, which is also where it was last year. In fact, I had a touch of deja vu walking into the lobby and seeing all the gorgeous holiday decorations I so admired last year. I have to get some pictures of them.
One thing I did get a picture of already is something that's sure to be my downfall (or at least, my diet's downfall): Dispensers in the lobby that dispense a never-ending supply of white, milk, and semi-sweet chocolate:
Sorry for the fuzz factor on the photo. There's also what looks to be a Santa, reindeer, and carolers also made out of chocolate, though I didn't break off a piece of them yet to check! I also had the rare opportunity to take a walk around town this afternoon, and it's fun to see the different spin on the season they have in SoCal, especially compared to where I come from in traditional New England.
