Cruel Compendium #51 🤸♀️
Come to my SXSW panel with Captain Sandy on March 15!
Reporting live from #SXSW! Want to see something scary? This is what my calendar looks like this week:
I will obviously not be attending all of these events—I’ll be lucky if I attend 3% of them—but this is my first SXSW with a badge and I’m trying to make the most of it.
Speaking of being a badge holder, I am moderating a SXSW panel tomorrow, Wednesday, March 15, called Unforgettable Experiences for Today’s Luxe Travelers, and one of my guests is none other than Below Deck’s Captain Sandy! If you’re in town, join us at 11:30am at the Austin Convention Center in room 8ABC!
On to the links!
