Time for my monthly? update.

LPSC is next week. I have a talk and a poster. The paper on which the poster is based is in press already, so that one's no problem. The talk is going to be suck-tacular. I didn't get the results I'd hoped for. It looked promising when I sent in the abstract, but apparently it's not. I don't think I made any mistakes, I think I just disproved my hypothesis. That's ok, just not very interesting. Could have used some more time to try a few other things, but the Space Department at APL decided that this was the _best_ time to do server maintenance. The weekend before a major planetary science meeting.

This would be the time my abstract gets selected for a press release and I get to do a press conference. Well, I won't have much to say, but I'll have to jazz it up as best I can.

We're going to my folks' tomorrow. They're going to watch the baby while [ profile] kathleenroberts and I go to [ profile] tango's game. We'll stay the night at my parent's since I'm flying out of DCA tomorrow. I'm in Houston until Friday. [ profile] kathleenroberts picks me up from the airport and we're going directly to Blacksburg until Monday. We got us a suite at the Microtel and we're staying until Monday morning. I'm bloody well taking Monday off. So, I'm gone for ... 9 nights.

The boy has gotten himself up on hands and knees a few times, but hasn't managed to go anywhere yet. I'm sure he'll start while I'm gone. He's also said "Dada" a number of times, but I don't think he knows it's a word. Just a sound he likes to make.
