Absolutely Not Your Monkey

It’s three in the morning. I’ve been running around all day trying to get all of my materials ready for the book expo tomorrow. I think I’ve got everything, but a lot depends on whether I can make copies at the office tomorrow morning. Dean, Gavin and I went to the pre-expo opening dinner at the Hyatt. Dean had thought that it would be a mixer-kind of affair where I could hand out the special namecards Dean and I came up with, and maybe chat with people. The expo people, however, had other plans, including playing “Dixie” and southeast Asian dancing to the music of Kitaro. There was also a puppet show/lion dance and excellent mashed potatoes. At least we got a free meal.

Tomorrow, or in reality, in a few hours, I am going to have to get up, get dressed up (I even bought new shoes this time. Dress shoes, which I haven’t worn in a decade), get to the office and print out a shitload of book proposals before I meet Dean at the New York, New York McDonald’s at 9. I feel like I’m back in school, only this is more important and risky than anything I ever did in school. Speaking of risky, I’ve also got to explain to my boss why I’m taking a couple of days off right after the Chinese New Year break. I think I’ll go with “Vague Truth” this time.
