I ran into Schwern and Dominus at the hotel lobby as I was checking out ($700ish! Oy!). Dominus kindly agreed to take home my copy of "A New Kind of Science" (approx. 150lb of book), which made room for the new stuff I'd acquired at the conference: t-shirts, plush toys, Buffy board game, etc.
At the airport I ran into Elaine and Jarkko on their way back to Boston. I got another heaping helping of shit from Elaine, then had a big ole steak at the airport restaurant. That helped my hangover no end. I slept on the uneventful flight back, and was met at the airport by William, Raley, and Jenine. We had dinner at a delicious Italian restaurant, and were all exhausted by the time we got home. Happiness for everyone!
So ends the tale of YAPC, where much fun was had by all.
