What do I need to pack for Las Vegas!!

sarahbethlibrarian:

Remeber:

1. I am there for a library conference

2. I do not drink or gamble

3. Despite 2, I am lots of fun and hope to run into Britney Spears

4. Las Vegas will be 108 this weekend, conference centers usually hover around 50.

5. I may have to do some running to catch up to Lois Lowry (and…

I have one awesomely sequined item but I think it’s all ALAed out from the last dance party. I’m not sure what all this “ladies must wear heels” dress code business is all about for the nightclubs. I always pack heels and usually wear them….but if they tell me I HAVE to wear them I wanna be rebellious and do flats.

Also running to LL. Not.in.HEELS.

Yay! It’s the first #alamyface of #alaac14! I’ll post mine when I’m on the road, but I still basically look like my profile pic. Maybe a teensy less pale, but darker hair.

ALA Conference & Travel Packing & Survival Tips

librarianbyday:

Almost 3 years ago I gave up checking bag and started traveling with only a carry on. I was tired of paying the extra baggage fees, waiting for my bag at the carousel, and it felt like a challenge. After a few trips I got used to it and I never looked back! Here’s how I do it. 

Plus tips for first time and long time conference attendees.

Repeat: Portable battery/USB charger! Best conference investment. My phone always dies after lunch. This is the major must-have!

Great idea on the power strip. I had not considered that. I’m rooming with two others so this is a stroke of brilliance!

ALA 2014 in Las Vegas

librarianslikenoise:

Any noise or experimental musicians attending ALA 2014 Annual in Vegas?

Any circuit benders, hackers or Makey Makey heads attending?

We should plan a thing!

Pass it on if you know someone.

Noisemakers? I know you’re out there!

librarianpirate:

My library just got Freegal* and since I am hopeless at new music I figured I’d use it as a springboard to actually getting to know new things? But the problem is I am so awful at new music that I barely even know where to start.

For those of you that don’t know, Freegal lets you download 3-5…

I am so very ashamed to admit that we have had this service for a REALLY long time and I’ve yet to use it. New goal of the week! Your post has inspired me to download my first Freegal song. I’ll get Happy by Pharrell since it’s currently one of my kids’ favorites. Ooooh….I wonder if they have any songs from Frozen.

I know, when we first got Freegal I checked to see if they had any My Morning Jacket downloads…that was my primary form of measurement on whether I approved of Freegal. They did.

So, yay! New project for the day. Thanks Librarian Pirate!
