  • Mood:

welcome to Seattle and ALA

OK, so a 5 hour flight late taking off did not exactly pt me in a great mood, but the bumps were not too bad (I read through most of them) and I had the most bodaciously exquisite manuscript to read (more on this later once I get the go ahead from the publisher to talk about it), so we arrived in Seattle before my butt lost all of its feeling (and it can feel quite a bit). Of course, the hotel screwed p my reservation so I am in a room for one night and then get to play "can you find me a room with 2 beds before my roomie arrives?) before proceeding to my first committee meeting tomorrow.

But now that I have had some salad and enough liquid to replenish what I lost on the plane, I am feeling better. ALA begins for me tomorrow with the Edwards Committee meeting in the afternoon and then the USBBY session with Terry Trueman tomorrow evening. I think that will make for a terrific day even with the great room change.

So, I bid you goodnight so that I can go back to the other books I dropped into the carry on, the new Mal Peet and the forthcoming Jerry Spinelli.

BTW, I will also be blabbing, er blogging, for YALSA on their official site, so check that out too. I plan to blog from the press conference Monday as they announce all the winners. It is my favorite time at ALA.
