More whining from the Pharmaceutical Meeting Planners Forum: I thought I was a goner by 8 last night, but somehow managed to hang in for dinner (excellent prawns at the JW Steakhouse here in the hotel) and caught a second wind that kept me up once again until midnight. Still, with no conference duties other than to cover the sessions this morning, that still gave me a good shot at a decent night's sleep.
Until the fire alarm around 4:30 a.m. I didn't know I could move that fast. I was up, dressed, and wide awake while waiting to hear whether I should stay or go within seconds, I think. Thankfully, it was a false alarm. I finally went back down just in time for my wakeup call. Caffeine is truly a wonder drug.
