Wait … I have to give a talk tomorrow
I’ve known for weeks that my AGU talk is tomorrow. Last week, I even posted the time/place and abstract. But, in all the hub-bub of the defense and post-defense relaxation/celebration, I didn’t think about what I’m actually going to say that much.
I was just about to walk out my door to take a street car down to the meeting and had one of those moments where you stand in your hallway debating with yourself. In theory, I could head down there and take breaks in between talks and posters to work on my talk. It doesn’t need that much work … all the elements are there, I just talked about this research on Friday. But, in the end, I decided I should stay home for the morning and get the talk cleaned up and all shiny for tomorrow. Unfortunately, I’m going to miss some talks I wanted to check out this morning, but that’s the way it goes. Hopefully, I’ll be able to get down there by late morning.
As Yami points out, there was a geoblogger meet-up last night. Me, Yami, Andrew, and Thermochronic had some beers, shared some California tapas, and discussed various aspects of our blogging in addition to what we’re all doing in the “real” world. I hope these meet-ups are something that happen every year … I enjoyed it.
They all heard about what my plans are after officially finishing up the dissertation (in January/February). It’s not that exciting really, but I will post about it in the next few days.
