What time zone is this, anyway?

Finished up the MetSoc on Friday, flew to Tucson on Saturday... to an empty house and one fixed task, getting some cavities drilled on Tuesday morning. I figured I would have days and days of nothing to do. Ha!

My room in Tucson has a whiteboard (all labs have a whiteboard, ergo my room is a lab) which quickly got filled with my to-do list. I think I had lunch and dinner with nearly everyone I know in Tucson. I finally got around to proofing my Heat Capacity paper. (Elsevier has the most obtuse web site for submitting proofs, matched only by the absolutely awful design of Adobe Acrobat for annotating pdf files. I hate hate hate it... why can't we just scribble in red pencil on pieces of paper like in the good old days?) I bought some shirts and undies. (I do try to do that once a decade) And, oh yes, I did get the teeth drilled. That was remarkably painless... more painless than clothes shopping, at least.

I even remembered to water the plants in the house.

I bought a small flashlight for my next stop, which is the famous amateur astronomy/telescope maker's convention, Stellafane. I still have too much in my comet talk Saturday night, but I have been busy killing my darlings so that I should be able to get through it all in under an hour.

Right now I am in LAX waiting for the red-eye to New York. I plan -- indeed, hope -- to be awake most of the next few nights, so I may as well get started now!
