Clearly you didn't have to factor in personal-grooming time required for doing hair & makeup!

One of my more glamorous colleagues told me I'm "the least vain" person she knows. My response: "You haven't met my husband/sister/best friend, obviously!"
(Simon suggested after last weekend's OA Conference that we need to get you an OA business shirt. Are there still any of those around?)

I should note that as workshop dinners go, this was a very informal affair - a quiz night with pizza. (Our table crashed and burned after getting a perfect 0 on the movies and TV round).

Well you would have cleaned up in the political opposition leader round.

I managed to have an ocean swim in the 45 minute lunch break at a work conference, and have lunch (my attention to hair and makeup was lacking)

I was at a workshop in Switzerland once during a heatwave. The workshop venue was beside a lake; almost everyone went into the water during the lunch break, and some were also doing it during the coffee breaks.

What constitutes a "heatwave" in Switzerland?

In this particular case, 32-34 for several days in a row. At lower elevations Switzerland can get pretty hot - Geneva's average July maximum is 27, which is higher than Sydney or Melbourne in January (though without the same level of variation - their record is just under 40). Nobody who went to WOC 2003 (35ish every day) will need much reminding about Swiss heatwaves.
