Yes, I am in my yoga pants and pjs. Yes, I have kitten breath and remarkable bed hair. So no, I DO NOT HAVE MY CAMERA.
This morning, a delightful slice of Illinois got in line behind me. She's really charming -- fist bumps with all the Starbucks employees (and she got a free drink.) Meet fellow conference goer Patty J Murphy. I will look for her books!
And YESTERDAY, I couldn't believe my living undead luck -- Marlene Perez got in line behind me! I am a big fan of Marlene's and I hope I see her again when I'm cleaned and coiffed and caffeinated to have a proper conversation. Also, if Linda Johns is reading this, I am going to hug you when I get home on behalf of Marlene (they've been in a critique group for TEN years and met for the first time at an LA Conference.) And Linda, I promise I will shower first.
One morning Cecilia Yung got behind me in line. And then on the way to the elevator I walked by Brenda Bowen. Too nervous to make eye contact with either, but if you are attending the LA Conference you never know who you'll see at 7:00 am!
