people either talked very quietly back to me, or talked to me like i was a little kid, or just DIDN'T STOP TALKING. Seriously I can't close a conversation with the normal "okay got it thanks" I just had to keep smiling and nodding while they thought of item after item of inspired monologue.
it's all too bad because this weekend was awesome. i was at my regional swe conference hanging out with awesome other women engineers who i've grown to really enjoy lately.
at least i don't need a voice for the internet.
