    Stressful day. Multimedia. Bullet points. Rebookings.

    By Jennifer 8. Lee | January 14, 2008

    Stressful day running around putting finishing touches on a Chinese food Dining story for this Wednesday that looks like it should be pretty good — involves a lot of multimedia (yay for Sylvia and Patrick, who put it all together, and Josephine, for making the video happen on such short notice). Also tomorrow, a big luncheon (with takeout Chinese, how could we resist) with New York media (who, I am told, are tough!). So I have to figure out how to be on message with the book within a 10-minute frame — so I am making bullet points.

    The day had a bad start when around 12:30 a.m. my friend (on IM) realized she had booked the wrong flight on the wrong day for Sundance (1/19 instead of 1/17, as 17 and 19 are both prime numbers < 20 and not something memorable like 13 or 11, I actually *can* see the confusion, no joke). So I spent 2 hours trying to figure out what the cheapest way to change it was, with frequent flyer miles, Amex points, flying in early, flying out late, whatever. Sigh. Ignore all the typos. I’m a little stressball.
