End Of The Year Getting Close… May 11, 2006Posted by gordonwatts in university.
The end of the academic year is getting close — perhaps a bit more than a month away. I envy those of you on the semester system. I suspect you are either in final exams or just handing in your course grades. Durn you (then again, I don't have to teach until Sept 27th!).
But the end of the quarter means… Holy disapearing days, Batman! That committee we are supposed to have been running all year and hasn't met has to do everything in the next month. Tomorrow I'm scheduled in meetings from 8:30am to 5pm, with an hour for lunch. I'm sure lunch will be spent discussing something work related.
Overheard at a fiarly large meeting today: "Theorists are just deprived experimentalists." Deprived of large enough grants to buy experimental equipment, that is. Not true, of course, but the corner of the room where that joke was told laughed loud enough to confuse the other corners of the room.
