bragging

This post reminds me that I need a librarian icon...

Not only can I brag about the Steelers going to the Superbowl, but I can brag about all the awesome books I picked up free at the ALA Midwinter conference in San Antonio. This weekend has been great. Friday night I met a bunch of new people, including some hip young librarians (like me!) who also work in Louisiana. Saturday I browsed the exhibits, picking up a bunch of books and entering to win prizes that I won't get. Then I went to my only meeting of the conference (unless I go to something tomorrow) and joined a committee! Last night was a social at the Hard Rock Cafe, where we were fed with free appetizers but not free drinks. Again, there was much socializing with hip young librarians. Today was awesome, too. We went back to the exhibit hall and picked up more free books! Then we had lunch at the sports bar where we later watched the Steelers game with other Pittsburghers/Pennsylvanians/displaced Steelers fans. What a great game!!!
