Basically Me at ALA Annual

Except instead of cigarettes, I’ll be cadging food.

I’m starting to loathe work-related travel, since everything a.) is expensive, b.) has to be organized months in advance, c.) must be paid for upfront, and d.) doesn’t get reimbursed until weeks after the event.

Meanwhile, because my department is consistently under-resourced*, I’ve got massive piles of work that must be dealt with before I go AND as soon as I get back.

I could be getting my glasses fixed, but getting trampled by swag-seeking, totebag-slinging librarians in a convention center in one of the most expensive cities in the United States is…also a way to spend my time and money.

*yeah, I said it.
