  2. Dangit! I totally missed that this was going on firstly and secondly, how did I miss you being so close to me? :( We could've hung out. Damn me being so out of touch lately.

  3. LOL! Hi Kristen :D You will just have to come to ALAN in 2012--Las Vegas! We're saving up our $$ now... I don't know when I'll make it to Chicago again but I'll make sure it's just for fun, not for a conference. It was a very busy couple of days!
