Oh my, I've got so many posts drafted that just need some teeny bit of editing to be done... and on really exciting stuff, I mean, there's whale-watching, bad travel, dinosaurs and of course, back by popular demand, the return of the Almighty Gus!
But something trumps all of that. Something I need to get done before I can think of polishing off those posts.
Tomorrow morning (Aug. 31st) at 8:50 AM (someone up there hates me), mountain time (GMT+7) I'm giving a talk at this year's most important meeting in my field of study. I've been working on streamlining my presentation for a week, cutting it down from the original 40 minute version to the allowed 15 minutes + 5 for questions (argh, the pain, the pain!) and rehearsing out loud to tease out the more difficult tongue-twisting bits.
Could I be more ready? Yes I could. Am I ready enough? I bloody well hope so.
Whatever happens, tomorrow evening I will be drinking margaritas at the hotel bar with some fun people.
And then I will finish those blog posts I've been promising you. Such are my priorities in life :-)
