I arrived with plenty of time to set up after I found the room I was to tell tales in. In each room there were different events and foods. In my room the food was also the event - it was candy! Imagine a large room with a huge table in the center of it. Now imagine in the center of the table a tree decorated with lights to look like an inverted chandelier. Now imagine around the tree, tier after tier, plate after plate of fine candies and chocolates, pralines, dipped strawberries, candied apples decorated in so many different ways, and nuts presented with such exotic tastes. And there was me in a corner trying not to be distracted by the mouth watering goodies and atempting to tell stories to people. People who were wandering in in small groups discussing the salads this room, the cheese in that room (why didn't they put me with the cheese - ah, the torture!), or the rock and band in another suit! And don't forget the skiing!
