The Things I’ll do for Chick-Fil-A and Showit

06.09.2011

Somehow, I manage to get myself into silly situations. Like yesterday’s adventure.

Yesterday, the Showit crew (my website company and so much more!) came to Dallas to launch a new and exciting product (which I can’t wait to offer my clients!). I arrived at the venue early to help with setup. Someone had planted the idea of Chick-Fil-A, and next thing I knew, I couldn’t get the craving out of my mind. As we finished up with most of the logistics, I offered to go on a Chick-Fil-A run. I had checked my phone for the nearest location and it said that there was one just three minutes away by car. PERFECT, I thought.

I braced myself as I got into my hot car (it’s in the high 90’s lately) with everyone’s order and set out towards the coveted purveyor of chicken. Sure enough I arrived at the designated address just a few minutes later, but I look around and I don’t see a Chick-Fil-A. There’s a McDonald’s but that’s about it. Oh, and there’s a hospital. I pulled over and checked my phone again, this time accessing the Chick-Fil-A site. Sure enough, it says there is a location right there…INSIDE THE HOSPITAL. I thought that was a little odd.

Finally, I make it through to one hospital wing and stare at the directory trying to find some indication of a restaurant. The map looked a lot like a mall directory, except it was directing to the labor and delivery wing and radiology. A nice employee asked if he could help me. Hesitant, as to not look like a crazy girl wanting some Chick-Fil-A, I asked him if there was a location by chance. He smiled and directed me in the right direction…THE BASEMENT.

I took the first elevator I see down to the basement, and exit to an area where I feel I shouldn’t be. There are hospital employees milling around in scrubs, and I feel like a total intruder. I sort of felt like I was on a drug run of sorts, having to navigate a specific set of twists and turns in order to find the goods. I follow the long hallway down (a long, long way) and finally locate the cafeteria. And Chick-Fil-A EXPRESS. I guess it’ll do. I was already so committed that I couldn’t go that far without following through. Sheesh.

The things I do for some Chick-Fil-A and Showit. Good thing I love both.

With Vanessa and Kim!

DJ showed us the future of photo sharing. I’m so excited!

Zach and Jody Gray are awesome photographers from Nashville and they spoke about their client care. They are great speakers and I highly recommend going to see them if you get the chance!

Promise Tangeman spoke about branding and some helpful hints for figuring out who you are and how to express that visually to create a consistent look. I didn’t get a photo with her in front of the photo wall. Sad panda.

Check out the video I put together of the photos from last night!

Seriously, I can’t wait to share (in more ways than one!) photos with clients and vendors.

Happy Thursday!

Thursday Tips will be back next week!
