ALIA highlights: eli, meteors

Two small highlights of my trip. One, seeing Eli’s smiling face on the projection screen at the ALIA dinner. Apparently the ALIA New Graduate’s group had borrowed a powerpoint presentation from ALA’s New Members Round Table with some headshots and little quotes from people about being a new librarian. I looked up from my drink, halfway around the world, and saw Eli and nearly sprayed soda on my tablemates saying “I know her!” Second highlight, flying home and catching some of the Geminid meteor shower from the window of the plane.
