In list form, made in no particular order:
1. I'm glad I got there on the early side, since it ended up being SRO.
2. Assam tea - yum!
3. Two teen boys were intently playing computer games on their laptops when I arrived. They were still playing when I left. In between, they almost never paused or looked up. Until someone read a poem about breasts. Turns out that might be the real Final Fantasy.
4. I really liked the second poem I read. It is not the one that made it in the journal. Funny how that goes.
5. I got to hear some pretty terrific poems tonight. That happens every time I attend a reading. This country is thick with talented writers, whether they're widely published or not.
