Why don't they make self-packing suitcases?

I hate packing. But I want to have clothes to wear when I get to L.A. So I'll be shoving things in a suitcase today instead of blogging.

I promise to post from the conference. I'm dying to hear Leonard Marcus speak. And to see the art at the Portfolio Display. And to buy a $10 latte every morning. (Actually, I do meet people in the coffee line, so it's not a complete waste of money.)

I have something RED picked out for the "Paint the Town Red" pool-side party. I've budgeted money to buy lots of books and have them signed. I've charged my camera. I'm debating reading material for the plane flight. I must begin the grand shoe elimination and only take the necessary pairs. (Will someone invent a way to fold running shoes into tiny squares so I will pack them and use the treadmill by the pool?)

I can't wait to see old friends and meet new ones. If you see me, PLEASE say hello. Now, off to negotiate a treaty with my suitcase...


  1. Oh, Sara. It's hard to believe I met you only last summer at Conference. I miss it already. Have fun for me - plenty of dispatches from the ground!

    It's so ironic - for years I went, knowing no one, and now, my last year I meet fabulous people and then...leave the country. Typical.

  2. LEONARD MARCUS! I'm so jealous. ENJOY! Travel safely.

  3. I'm jealous! Have a great trip.

    Adidas Darog mesh shoes don't fold into small squares - but they are SUPER lightweight and squish almost completely flat. Not really specifically running shoes, I don't think - but I love 'em.
