Blogger Meet-up!

Blogger Meet-up!


Spring Break is over. I got very little done, but I feel relaxed and settled about a lot of things in my life. Part of that comes from seeing the wonderful What Now for a few hours today!! We went for a long walk down into Dabbaville, and then had a snack, and then walked back. It was nice to talk about allowing ourselves to go where life leads us, and to laugh about how sometimes, we end up happy doing things we never thought we'd do.

Of course, I thought for a very long time I'd like to be a Real Academic. Apparently, that happened. Still working out how to live the fantasy ... Oh -- and I can't remember if I mentioned this: have had an article accepted (needs some revisions, but accepted) and am currently negotiating a contract (there is a verbal and e-mail agreement) for a project (possibly to need finishing by the end of summer OMG whatamIdoing??? -- LDW is helping to make sure I don't agree to anything stupid), and that other thing I owe VCE??? I've got about 4 paragraphs to go.


Oh -- and Dabbaville is actually undergoing a bizarre transformation where there are good and inexpensive Asian, South American, and ... Caribbean? restaurants opening up. Tomorrow, I go in search of goat curry. Like my friend the Mathemetician says, "It's Goatalicious!"

Ooh, is that a Fulda article? Can I have an offprint when it forthcomes? And many congratulations also!

Thanks, MW!

10th, sadly, it's not a Fulda article -- it's pedagogical. But the thing I'll be trying to crank out this summer in London will be Fulda-related. And the conference paper is, too.

Oh, excellent all around!

Oh frabjous day!!

The editing queue is practically non-existent, since only 4% of March reviews were on time. So you will get a fast turnaround.

Hope the goat is great.

I missed the goat -- the review took precedence, as did picking the cat up from surgery. Argh. Review is now being given the once-over by LDW, so unless he says it's total crap, you should have it no later than Thursday am.
