All Al Franken Will Ever Know
I was looking for a place to eat dinner with Dan and Justin, two people I met at the Austin Hostel, when we passed by a closed Jimmy John's Sandwich Shop on 6th Street that advertised FREE SMELLS.
While it was closed, I wanted to open it up to interpretation. I asked Dan to take my picture in front of the restaurant.
As I was doing handstands in front of the window to pose for the picture, Al Franken walked up and attempted to open the door. When he failed, he asked Justin where he could find a good burger in the area. Justin directed him down the street.
I was so busy brainstorming about my ass that I didn't know that he was Al Franken until after he left. All he will ever know of me is that I do handstands and point to my ass.
SXSW registrants can enter the SXSW Registrant Lounge (it's a tent) and dig in on an unlimited supply of Nutella and crackers.

Sorry We're Open
Five of us craved breakfast simultaneously at 11am, when the Austin Hostel kicks us out of our rooms, so we packed into Mike's car and headed to Magnolia Cafe on South Congress.
You can see me in the reflection of the window. Behind me is a car waiting to park in the spot I'm standing in. Behind the window a group is eating.
The roof of the Austin Convention Center revealed a camera crew filming on a side street last Saturday.

Sappy Cat-Lovers Only
This is really a sappy cat-lover's photolog disguised as a travel journal. Below are Boots (the Austin Hostel mascot and guard) and friends I met at the hostel during SXSW: Robin, Sean, and Angelica.
