Report on AED

Tonight finished up the 2011 International Conference on Eating Disorders. It was a fantastic conference--so good, in fact, that I didn't have hardly any time to blog or Tweet. {{It doesn't help that internet access is $12/day, and I don't want to have to pay for today. I'm blogging on my phone instead.}} I will definitely remedy that when I get home tomorrow.

Tonight was the closing social event, with dinner and a cash bar. I had salad, salmon, mashed potatoes, veggies, and chardonnay. Then, the DJs fired up. It is an odd thing to see some of your idols trying to do the funky chicken. I got jiggy with Cindy Bulik and Susan Ringwood (head of B-EAT in the UK).

And then?

Then I saw a sight that will leave me smiling until the day I die.

I saw Walt Kaye.
On the dance floor.
Trying to bust a move.

It will really be hard to beat that moment. The sight of him dancing with about my level of skill and grace (my mother can confirm it's pretty minimal), was too classic.

I will be sad to leave Miami tomorrow. I really did have a wonderful time.

My god am I disappointed I didn't stay another night if only to bust a move with Walter Kaye ;-)
