"Conversation about the weather is the last refuge of the unimaginative." --Oscar Wilde
Well what do you expect Mr. Wilde...I haven't had my daily dose of caffeine all day.
This Sunday I am leaving for Detroit to attend the North American International Auto Show. I'm excited, I'm nervous, but mostly I am terrified of the cold. Not even my fear of flying trumps my fear of frigid temperatures. Call me a Texan Pansy, if you will, but the whole reason my husband and I moved from the little ole town of Hanna, Wyoming was because we both felt it was too
While at the NAIAS, I'll be checking out all the newest vehicles and vehicle concepts from several automakers. Since General Motors is sponsoring my trip to Motor City, I'll also be interviewing GM executives. It's like they can't get enough of me. Which reminds me--I've got to get a voice recorder this time as I'm sure we don't need a repeat of my interview with Tim Herrick.
One of the vehicles that I am excited to learn more about is the Chevy Spark which is slated to come to the United States in 2011.
I'm also interested in learning more about OnStar and what they have to offer. I'll also be checking out several other brands while I'm there. I can't wait to share my experiences with you! My friend, Andie, is going with me so you know it's going to be good.
In the meantime, I'd like to hear from you on your tips for surviving cold weather temperatures before I take off for Detroit. Should I suck it up and quit whining like a loser or is there something magical about frozen ears and cracked lips that I am missing? Also, seeing as I haven't flown in ten years, what's your best advice for getting through lines the most efficiently or is this question a guarantee now that I'm going to get patted down? For extra marks, you can now take the Screwed Up Texan Pat Down Poll thanks to my friend, Frazzled LaShawn.
In the meantime, keep up with me on Twitter. I'll be back in full swing Wednesday, January 13th if Andie doesn't let me use her laptop before then.
Or leave a comment here, because I don't leave until Sunday morning.
