Now, I leave for a conference to present my first-ever post-book new-project paper. On the plane with me will be:
- My book MS, with revisions, to go over on the plane so I can get it back Monday (5 days past deadline)
- A paper that my friend from Exotic Research City asked me to go over and correct the English
- A grant proposal that a colleague has asked me to give a once-over
- Two thesis chapters from my pokiest grad student
Oh yeah -- and my camera.
By the time I get through Monday night, my major deadlines will all have been passed, and I'll be able to be a bit more relaxed. See you then.
