It's 11:30 P.M. on Thursday. I've been looking for my ALA badge for three days and have decided to give up and get a new one when I get to Philadelphia tomorrow. My suitcase is packed save for my shampoo and conditioner. I've got extra Popular Paperbacks for Young Adults books in my car, all the agendas and emails I need for my committee meetings printed and in folders, and times and addresses of the various publisher dinners and parties I'm going to in my phone. I've packed my cell phone charger, extra business cards, and various things that belong to other people.
I'm so not ready for this.
