I'm off to warmer climes for the long weekend, with a paper to give. This is a very small conference, with about 6 panels total. Lots of discussion should ensue.
I'm leaving the kids and spouse behind like a rat. What can I say? They wouldn't want to leave the snow? We're scheduled to fly (the whole family) to Europe in July, so I'll enjoy a little loneliness this time out. Carry on, sleep, ear buds. I'll try to make the best of it.
I do get to fly both legs, back and forth, in ancient MD-80s. They are like flying in the former Soviet Union.
