I submitted my tenure file yesterday, and this morning I head off to Philly to visit Swarthmore for their Senior Thesis extravaganza. I had the honor of reading a really nice piece of undergraduate research and I’m looking forward to talking about it with Robin, Mike, the student and other examiners. By Sunday morning, I’ll be settled in New York, looking forward to a few days of R&R. I’d love to see friends and colleagues in the area–there are plans in the make for Monday night. Send an email if you’re into it. Blogging, in some better fashion than I’ve been doing lately, will resume in a week. I am — *gasp* — not bringing the ‘puter.
