My apologies to all of you who follow this blog. Emma and I have been running around during the last few weeks and I haven't had much of a chance to blog. Running around where, you ask? Mostly between Akron and Willoughby, with a few days on the West Coast thrown in for good measure. Now we have about 10 days to prepare for ALA in New Orleans. Our presentation is well on its way to completion (thank goodness for Michele McNeal!) but there's still work to do. Here are a few things I've learned in the last 3 weeks:
1. It's not possible to sleep well on a pile of random pillows instead of a mattress.
2. Raccoons pick the strangest places to expire.
3. Good udon noodles can be found at an airport.
4. Driving a minivan with an automatic transmission can be a thrilling, if unsafe, experience for someone used to a small car with a stick.
5. Zorbx will indeed remove almost any odor (not related to #2 above).
Well, our presentation isn't going to write itself. Time to get back to it.
