sweet relief  
Today will be a magical day. At the end of the ALAN workshop yesterday, the resident of the back bedroom and my better half were there to get me and whisk me away from the conference center from hell. We had a lovely dinner and talked. They let me rant a bit moe to get it out of my system. Now, I am watching the sun peeking over the palm trees here at the condo only 15 miles from Disney but miles away from the insanity. I have free internetz. I have graded some work. I have caught up on Facebook and Twitter. I am getting ready to brew coffee. My clothes are clean again. *sighs*

I loved each and every minute of the ALAN workshop. The speakers were awesome. I tried to tweet essences, but just found myself lost in the talks. Thankfully, there were others tweeting, too. I hope those of you who could not be there at least were able to see the feed.

Today is HP movie day. The resident wants massages after that. It might happen. What will definitely happen is that I get to reconnect to the family and be nana. Happy holidays all. I will post about books and reading later. For now, coffee and sunrise.

I was down there for the Florida SCWBI conf. this spring. God it was awful. I have no idea why they pick Disney for anything!
Are you still in Florida? There are a lot of nice places here that aren't disgusting insane resorts. I live in the north woods of Florida (High Springs) where you can walk in the woods, canoe and kayak, swim in clear springs and eat good food. Near us in Gainesville, fine art museum, natural history museum with a butterfly house which is wonderful, etc. Further west is Cedar Key, a lovely old fishing village with bookstore and art galleries.
Wish you could come up here for a visit. I am a big fan of yours...

I haven't even started my laundry yet. I'm hoping to get a load in before Thanksgiving dinner. Thank you for your tweet about my speech! It made me feel even MORE on my home planet than I already do at ALAN. Hope to meet you next year!
