Be Not a Goober

I have something to admit to you guys. I am a total goober.

I've had "register for the Kidlitosphere 08 Conference" on my to-do list for a month. A MONTH! I even printed out the registration form and everything. But it's been sitting on my desk, unloved, lonely, getting dusty, until tonight, when I finally sat myself down and said, "You are filling out that registration form and writing that check and you are going to put it in the mail! No excuses!"

And I said meekly, "Okay."

It's not that I don't want to go. This is going to be the highlight of my fall, in fact. A weekend with smart, cool, kidlit-lovin', more-or-less-techy geeks like me? What's not to love?

But I'm one of those people who put everything off until the last minute, just because there's so many last-minutes for other things that I have to do now. But no more! My registration is in the mail. Yours should join it.

See you in Portland!
