Completely off-topic post:
I spent the last couple of days at the University of Minnesota at the CIC Library Conference: "Getting in the Flow."
The good: Meeting interesting colleagues at other institutions. Many engaging speakers.
The bad: No free time, so I wasn't able to check out any of the fine Minneapolis comic stores or the famous DreamHaven books.
The ugly: The Minneapolis weather. My cell-phone getting stolen (I hope whoever took it really enjoyed the $5 of free calls they got before I reported it stolen. You should have taken my gloves and ear-muffs, as you would have gotten more use out of them!)
Proof I was at the conference:
(I talk with my hands a lot!)
That was actually take 2. Take 1 was much better, but they had to redo it because of sound issues :(
Regular comic-related blogging will return shortly.
EDIT: Other cool thing: flying through O'Hare on the way back home, we taxied past the new Airbus A380. It's big...
