Tags: LGBT Media Journalists Convening, playing hooky

I know, I know. You're all tired of hearing me complain about being overworked currently as I plan next weekend's LGBT Media Journalists Convening. By this time next week, I'll be on a train headed for Philly to welcome my 80+ guests to the event. I'm. So. Damn. Excited.

But today - and today only it seems - I have nothing left to do. All the catering orders are placed. The AV stuff has been finalized. (Power cords! There has to be enough power outlets!) Everyone has a hotel room and a way to get there. The seating chart for the opening reception and dinner is done. Brunch and the Saturday night bar crawl is planned. The presenters have all been contacted and are working together on their sessions. I can breathe.

So technically I should be working on the site all day today to make up for my lack of attention over the past couple of weeks. But it's 60 degrees outside. I'm meeting Drew Cordes and Winter Tashlin for the first time this afternoon since they're both in town for a kink conference. While yesterday was Valentine's Day, Jerame and I didn't get to go do anything really thanks to some last minute convening snafus.

So I'm playing hooky today. There's nothing else in queue to be published today although if someone posts something another editor might get it up on the site. Not me. I'm taking the day off to enjoy the warm weather, my fellow bloggers, and the hubby. I hope your day is just as full of good things as mine is today.

So what've you got planned for today or tonight?
