Ins And Outs

What better thing to do during the five days I have at home between Philadelphia and Germany than come down with a cold?

Actually, it's not as bad as it could be. I mean, I do have those five days to get over the worst of it, after all, and most of what I have to do during this time is to write stuff. My head is already clear enough today that I think I can tackle the two big jobs, which are putting together my Hanover presentation and writing a brief thingy for the Marty Center.

In other news, the panel that I put together for SEM has been accepted. Yay! I get to present at SEM this year! I'm moving on up.

It never fails that when you have a little relaxation time, that is when the body succumbs, making enjoyment impossible. But hooray for you at SEM! How much longer on your dissertation? I'm looking forward to hearing about your job search. With all you've already done, it is going to go so well!

Well, I did get to spend those five days curled up under blankets eating delivery pho. That's something. And one of those blankets was conference swag! Yes! The cantors conference decided that everyone had way too many conference bags anyway, and the synagogue was over-air-conditioned, so they said to bring old conference bags with you and they provided lovely dark blue fleece throw blankets with the organization logo embroidered on a corner. I loved the blankies. Genius! Perhaps I shall suggest them to SEM.

The dissertation seems to be going pretty well. I figure maybe another year and a half? Who knows? I don't. I suspect that even the Shadow doesn't know this one. I just hope the economy picks up in time for my job search.
