Last night I finally made some money (instead of spending it) from the SXSW trip. Mena, who never wins anything was up for best weblog at the awards. At some point on sunday we had the following conversation:
“you’re totally going to win that blog award you know”
“what? no I’m not, I never win anything”
“you are so going to win”
“I guarantee you I will lose. I always lose. I’ve spent my whole life losing”
“I’ll bet you five bucks”
It was nice to see her win and all, but I was happier to win the bet. Five bucks, pure profit.
