Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
Not Ready For Departure
I have back-to-back conferences over the next two weekends, which means I'll barely be home between Tuesday evening and May Day. I'm excited about both conferences, but am sad to be leaving just when life at home was getting back on track after numerous disruptions. At least it will be easier for me to get work done, since I'll have all those hours in the air and feeling lonely in hotel rooms to make use of. Maybe I can devise a new birthday, one that won't always fall at the busiest time of the year. I hate the fact that my birthday time is so full of professional stress.

Hey, where are you conferencing? I find them really ridiculous. It is really hard for me to avoid the urge of jumping on the table and performing some Rat Pack song with gusto. The audience, I doubt, would be really miffed, probably considering it a mimicry avantgarde performance of Derrida. Genuine is not a conference vocab word, and the fact that I get treated like some pet monkey when I go because of my age, sigh. Though I am psyched about going to Arizona, not really for the conference, but to visit family and such.

I'm going to the Cultural Studies Association in Virginia first, then a popular music conference in Seattle. I actually like the conference experience, though it involves much tedium and the occasionaly outrage. But I grew up going to to chemistry conferences with my dad, so I'm comfortable in that setting. When are you going to be in Arizona again?

Rubbing elbows and wine and cheese! November, sometime with my friend Matt, sunglasses and plenty of Kenny Loggins' "Danger Zone". hehe.
