Or without a press pass. After a frustrating 45 minute sit in the American Libraries Magazine office, I'm now standing in line for advanced registration to open. Then I've got another frustrating round of disorientation as the registration staff check through their files and find they have no record of me. Then I go back to my hotel room and sleep some more? No, I've got to find my editor, first.
It took me two miles to get to the convention center, by the way. I need more coffee.
