It's that time of year when they ask us to project our travel for the upcoming year. What conferences are you planning on going to?
CODE4LIB: Feb 2015 in Portland,OR Wow. that is kind of far away but I know at least four people who live in the area. Even assuming I'll be able to stay with someone and get a ride with them we are talking $800 or so. - FLEMING
ALA Annual, in San Francisco, lots of money but I'm still totally looking forward to it. I participate in two groups that are very active, so make a nice subject-specific mini-conference. DLF Forum is near you this year, soon though. - Regular Amanda
DLF looks interesting. I wish I could see the program though. - FLEMING
LibTech :) - maʀtha
Maybe ACRL - maʀtha
Code4Lib is starting to do regionals, so maybe check if there are plans for one near you? - RepoRat
It looks like I missed the 1st regional meetup for CODE4LIB Southeast this summer but will keep an eye out for it next time - FLEMING
Midwinter in Chicago, Annual in San Fran, RDAP in Minnesota but no dates yet, ACRL only if my preconference gets accepted - Hedgehog from Android
DLF, OpenCon, Midwinter, LPC, ACRL. - jambina
Trying to cut back on long-distance travel, so RDAP looks tempting. Possibly LibTechCon, possibly the state association conference (though it's in the repulsive Dells, ugh), probably ASIST because boss wants me to, possibly SLA. - RepoRat
Open Ed (maybe OpenCon, but I'm not sure about it) - ellbeecee from Android
ALA MW & Annual, ACRL, CODE4LIB if I could swing it (not likely since I traded my "systems" hat for the "scholarly communications" hat... which means I need to find some good ScholComm conference(s) suggetsions - Aaron the Librarian
I've requested Book Expo America and ALA Annual in SF. - Katie
ACRL, QQML (maybe), Charleston (maybe), INSNA Sunbelt (maybe) - Marie
Scholcomm conferences (for Aaron): Open Repositories, SPARC OA if it's the right year, OpenCon. Crossover with tech at DLF, often. - RepoRat
NASIG, ER&L, and Charleston - Holly's favorite Anna
Open Repositories is in Indy this year (I'm a local host); DLF (which is great - but again, biased, as I'm on the advisory board), ACRL probably, IDCC hopefully - Sarah
Haven't been to a conference in a while. I'm considering ACRL. - Steele Lawman
ER&L, possibly ALA Midwinter for meetings and maybe Charleston - Galadriel C.
ER&L, probably state conference (WAAL) - Jen
edUi, ACRL, and CODE4LIB. Portland, twice, yay! - Laura Krier
Probably just Annual (SF) and ACRL - RudĩϐЯaЯïan

Dang. - Marie

Thinking good thoughts for our Vicster and Simon kitteh.
Thank you. I'm home for about 5 minutes before I go the chiropractor, then back to the clinic to get him from his first treatment, but I wanted to thank you for the good thoughts. We sure do need them right now. <3 - vicster: full-bodied
Definitely sending good thoughts. - Katy S from iPhone
This news has me in tears. - Janet from FFHound!
He's home from the initial treatment. I really like the oncologist and the oncology technician (who is going to call me tomorrow to follow up because it was all a lot to take in today). We go back on Saturday for a re-check and (I think) the second treatment and a long talk with the doctor about going forward. We all agree that this is all up to Simon now. If he doesn't respond or shows me he can't do this, we'll stop. - vicster: full-bodied
Hope you all rest well tonight. <3 - Marie from iPhone
*smh* You know what I'm talking about.
no? lita posting? - Sir Shuping is just sir
New Science publisher. - Marie from iPhone
The emcee of tonight's free comedy show is doing the exact same opening schtick as last time

Following on from Marie's post: Who is your (living) library hero you haven't actually met?

You mean met in person? - Julian
Yep. - RepoRat
You, if only because I am a tease / git ;) - Pete
Aw, hell. I swear I wasn't fishing, y'all. - RepoRat
Heh heh. I'm throwing in a vote for Repo myself. :-) - YvonneM
I'll throw in another one: Sandy Berman, if only to give him a kicked-outta-librarianship fistbump. - RepoRat
I'm lucky enough to have met RR a couple of times, so I'll vote for Secret Agent Fister. - John Dupuis
I've seen Sandy speak! It was awesome. And we corresponded once. Also awesome. - maʀtha
I also saw Sandy speak once and got mail from him once. He is great. And I see Secret Agent Fister is going to be at my state library conference this fall! - laura x from iPhone
That was supposed to be secret (jk). it would be sweet to meet you! - barbara fister
Now I have conjunctivitis in my other eye, bloody hell! #fb

Facilities: "Are you seeing any CO2 frost yet?" - David Lounsbury

I will be there! Yes to meetup! - kaijsa
Kaijsa, yay! - Marie
Say hi to a colleague for me... Carrie Forbes from DU will be there. - Joe
Marie, I'm staying with a friend who's a former coworker at UW and we're going to be there for all of the evening stuff and everything, but she and I are joined at the hip while commuting from the burbs. Let's get together, but I'm bringing her, too. She's awesome. - kaijsa
Joe, I love Carrie. Thanks for the heads up. - kaijsa
Gah, I didn't know there was evening stuff. I should look at the sched. I'm looking forward to meeting Kaijsa's friend and will seek out Carrie. - Marie

So many feels right now. You don't even know. And it's not just because I'm drunk.
Going to a funeral and I just randomly met up with my long-lost half-brother. I think I need another box of Kleenex. - Victor Ganata from iPhone

I just wrote my bio for the theater's website and I feel gross. I hate talking about me!
Writing a bio is the worst. - Marie
Embellishment is more fun when doing a bio though. ;) - Janet from FFHound!

I'd like to go on record to say that I do not care for almond milk.
Rice milk is my preferred non-dairy dairyesque tipple. - RepoRat
I didn't know rice milk is a thing! Do you have a preferred brand? - Marie
Used to make my own, actually -- it's not complicated -- but Rice Dream is okay. - RepoRat
I've never tasted almond milk but lately it seems the articles say it isn't better than milk just different. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
More for me! I've tried soy, rice, coconut, flax, even almond/coconut blend - almond still wins. - Corinne L
