Rhonda and I are heading to the city in a bit to attend this month's NCBPMA meeting. They're going to be presenting a check to the winner of the 2006 Carol C. Butterfield Scholarship Grant--me! I'm going to use the grant money to attend the Stanford Professional Publishing Course in July which is really truly amazing. It looks like it's going to be a very intense, very jam-packed program full of tons of interesting speakers and attendees. I'm postponing my departure to Ireland until after the course; this is not something that should be effected by jetlag in any way.
The only thing that could make this better is if they hand me a giant cardboard check at lunch. Giant cardboard checks are much for fun than little paper checks. If they did hand me a giant cardboard check, would I have to write a giant cardboard thank-you note?
