Jet lag? Me? And an event not to miss

I was told this was the “hard” direction — coming back to the U.S. from Australia. It hasn’t been too rough — though I wake up feeling as if I’ve been nailed to the bed — which makes me wonder if I ever really switched over. We jostled our way across so many time zones I think my body plumb gave up trying to adjust.100_4533

(Do astronauts get jet lag?)

No srsly, not to be missed!

The big thing I want to share is that this Friday, November 21,  there will be yet another one-hour online ALA Connections Salon. This one is hot as a pistol: it’s “Political Connections,” featuring the charming and well-spoken Emily Sheketoff, associate executive director of ALA’s Washington Office, and Vic Klatt, ALA’s political consultant and former staff director of the House Education and Labor Committee.

It’s online, 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. EST Friday, Nov. 21, 2008. Come one, come all!

From the blurb:

“Online Programming for All Libraries (OPAL) Coordinator Tom Peters will begin the hour with an interview with Sheketoff and Klatt. Both professionals will talk about President-Elect Obama’s Administration, the new Congress and what these changes in Washington portend for libraries during a period—a year, a term and beyond—marked by extraordinary challenges.

“Following the interview, participants will be free to ask questions and engage with Sheketoff, Klatt and with one another to discuss the promise and perils of a moment when, as President-Elect Obama said in his victory speech, “there’s so much more to do.”

If you’re a first-time user of OPAL, here’s a webpage containing basic information and tips.

But for now, I’m up very early tomorrow for a meeting in Warner Robins (4 hours north), so I’m taking it very easy and old-ladyish tonight, doing a little work blogging and uploading hundreds of photos to both my personal and work accounts while soup simmers on the stove.
