Facing the invaders

Today is day two of the German invasion: a television crew from Bavaria who have come to film us at the Specola. I hate doing television. Ten people standing around, cameras never work right, three trucks filling our little parking lot, all so that they can get four-and-a-half minutes of material for a documentary film that few will see and no one will remember.

Then I have three days of being able to work, before I face a wasted Friday for a committee meeting in Rome to organize a meeting where my input is not at all needed. I fly off to London on Saturday.

Oh, yeah. Two talks in the UK. They are eagerly awaiting my arrival, to receive profound wisdom from me. Maybe I should prepare something?

(This text was originally an email to a friend, but I figured, why not use it to kvetch in public?)
