The Aftermath

How many emails does it take to set up a storytelling festival? Well, for me: 99.

How long does it take to wrap up all the extra details after a storytelling festival? Apparantly more than a week. I thought(hoped) when the festival was over I'd be done. No such luck.

How long after the festival do I have to prepare for another event? Immediately. The library board's annual fundraising auction is tomorrow night. Woohoo! I get to bid on cool stuff and eat lasanga while a young cowboy sings cowboy songs!

How many days does it take to recover from planning a storytelling festival? I'm not sure. I'll let you know when it happens.

How many awesome people do you get to meet when you put together a big event? Tons! I can't even believe that I got to meet Margaret Read MacDonald and Supaporn Vathanaprida and so many other very kind and talented people, like my boss(the head of the library) who is a very cool guy, not scary at all like you(or is it just me?) imagine a big boss man to be. And yes, he wrote all those books that are on the link. Why didn't anyone ever tell me I should invite him to the author fair?

Does centennial really mean one-hundred years? I hope so. People keep talking about the storytelling festival "next year". I keep telling them it was a "Centennial Storytelling Festival". Centennial people!

How long will it be until I get back to blogging regularly? Soon, I hope.
