So!! Today is the big day!!

Actually it's not - it's tomorrow. But since I'm going to set this to post tomorrow, as you read it, tomorrow will be today!

The plan is to leave between 8 and 9. As of right now, which to those reading is last night, I'm only about 30% packed. It will be a mad scramble tomorrow morning - or this morning, for those reading.

Other than not being packed, I think I'm set. I have my camera all ready, my cell phone charged up, my laptop ready - those are the most important *g*. My Garmin is updated with the most recent maps, I have my Trip Tik and one of my coworkers showed me how to avoid having to drive through Detroit. It's a bit longer to go around, but less scary for someone driving and relying on their directionally challenged self for driving. Ah those electronic devices that scare me.

Now for the fun part!!

I'm looking forward to all kinds of events in Columbus, meeting roomies Jill (for the first time), and Nath again, meeting up with Mollie, meeting fellow romance readers and all the workshops - all will be so much much to see and do.

AND

For those who will be attending - and for those waiting at home, the Mullet Wig night is Thursday at 4:30. That is when I will be donning the wig as the loser *sigh* in The US vs Canada Mullet Challenge. The challenge that I lost to Sarah of Smart Bitches and her Billy Ray Cyrus. Perhaps I can buy her a Mullet Drink. It looks rather tasty - and I do look forward to the rousing cry after. Perhaps a number will try it. I can only giggle at the thought of a group of women ordering a Mullet Drink as I 'don the Mullet'. I don't have a red plaid shirt - I think mine is blue - but I'm not sure and it's one of the few things that's packed.
And now, I must head to bed so I'm nice and wide awake for the journey that I'll probably be just starting as you read this post.

I can feel myself turning, slowly but surely, a lovely shade of envy-green... *sigh* how I wish I were going!

Have a safe drive and enjoy yourself to the hilt, Kristie!
