Today is June 38th. Time is still not moving as slow as I’d like!
Yes, somehow it is time for ALA again. My speeches are almost done, but I haven’t started thinking about what I’m going to wear. This might be the year I show up in my pajamas. You have been warned.
If you are headed to Chicago for ALA this weekend, and you are curious about my attire, or have a bet with a friend about my shoes, here is where and when you can find me.

For those of you playing along with your scorecards at home, there are 3 official signing times, and I’ll be giving three speeches. I’m not sure if the speeches will have audience overlap, but I am trying very hard to make sure they are distinct.
Will you be in Chicago this weekend??
