Sorry to have disappeared on you all there. I decided, at the last minute, to take in the Central APA in Chicago. And not just because I effing love Chicago. (Though let’s be clear: it was certainly a consideration. I just can't get enough of that reflect-y ball in Millennium Park.)
I actually had some hardcore schmoozing to do. There are people whose radar screens I need to be on, and I haven’t been as good as I should’ve been at keeping in touch with said people. So the trip was, for the most part, political. (And successfully politically, might I add. Connections reestablished. Yay.) I’ll regale you with more amusing tales of the goings on in the next few days.
