I have one more day left to get ready for BlogHer and I've taken care of the really essential stuff, like sending screen captures to Susan Getgood so I'll be prepared to speak on the Business Blog Case Studies "unpanel" Saturday afternoon.
There's still a lot to be done before I'm ready to go. For example, I need to go to the tiny toiletries aisle at the drug store and decide which little toothpaste and shower gel to buy. I also need to find a roll of duct tape with which to remove all of the white cat hair that our calico has been diligently applying to my suitcase since I got it out of the closet earlier this week.
I have a great idea for entertaining myself on the plane and getting valuable work done at the same time. I'm going to put the instrumental versions of the last songs I need to write on my iPod and bring a notebook and a pencil. While I'm in the air, I can play the songs over and over as needed until I've completed the lyrics. It'll be hard to keep from humming them to myself, but I think I can suppress the urge.
I think I'm pretty much ready to go. I found my passport to take in case my expired license/renewal receipt combo doesn't cut it with airline security. My passport photo is even more horrifying than my license photo. When it was taken I had blonde, much shorter hair, was at least 20 pounds heavier, and looked downright matronly. Maybe it isn't such a good I.D. option.
Enjoy the rest of your week! I've decided that dragging a laptop through two airports in each direction is way more trouble than it's worth, so I'm leaving my computer at home. I'll post about my San Jose adventures on Monday.
