By the way, all, I thought I'd let you know that I have not actually fallen off the face of the earth, but it will seem like it for the next week or so!
I'm almost done with my handouts for the big K'zoo paper. And I've had two people give me edits. DV said that the paper would not embarrass me, and another blogger friend said that, although on the dry side, the paper sounded TRUE -- which is about the best thing I can think of! I've read it out loud twice, and the hard words were not the ones I stumbled over. But even with stumbling, I came in at 19 minutes. And yes, I read this to someone else, who said that I did not sound rushed. Yay for that. Now to fix the parts where it reads well for print, but sounds very awkward out loud.
About that round table? er ... It'll be done.
But I may be gone while I'm getting it done!
If not before, I'll see some of you at the 'zoo -- which will be kind of interesting, since few of us have actually met!
