At the bloggers dinner last night Mark Rittman was commenting on the breakfasts provided in the conference centre. They are called "continental breakfasts" but really they are just cakes and coffee. Mark was saying that the resultant sugar rush makes a good hangover cure (being an abstemious sort of fellow I couldn't possibly comment) but, if supplemented by Coca Cola and Skittles, it also enlives even the dullest of presentations. Well, the organisers must have known the Oracle Bloggers would be in need of a tonic this morning because they've laid on a spread of Krispy Kreme doughnuts, that deep-fried, sugar-coated heart attack in toroidal form. Yummy. Can't stop, must dash!
