The day before the Midwinter Meeting in Seattle brings excitement, packing, and (of course) delayed-flight haikus.
First, we are excited for those of you who are joining us for your first ALA conference!
#alamw19 So excited for my first ALA conference! Ready to learn, share and create something amazing!

Before you left the house, you had to make sure you packed the essentials.

When you get to the gate, it’s time for everyone’s favorite game.
Waiting to board the 9 am direct flight from EWR to SEA and playing spot the librarian. Pretty easy game …seems to be a lot of NJ libraryland taking this plane. See you soon Seattle. #alamw19

If you were unlucky and were delayed, at least it gives you time to write haikus.

But if you lucked out and somehow scored free Wi-Fi on the flight, you probably prepped by following the #alamw19 hashtag.
Warning, I got free wifi from a kind flight attendant and now I am just being on twitter for the remainder of my flight. I consider it warm up for #alamw19.

And of course, to those of you flying out today—may the force be with you (and your packing efforts).

To our #alaleftbehind folks, we’ll empty out a tote bag for you.
