Reading a 50 page paper… January 20, 2008Posted by gordonwatts in life.
Dealing with Julia full time takes a lot of time! I’m one of the reviewers for an ATLAS CSC note (along with most of the collaboration). The paper I’m reading is 50 pages long. Normally, that is a solid afternoon’s work for me. Not this time — took me more than 2 days to get it done. During the day I have a few hours during her nap and the evenings I was often too worn out for the careful work that a review requires. And when she is awake she would drop by to play with me every 15 minutes even when she was playing on her own. 🙂
I love the girl, but I’m looking forward to getting back together with my wife and arriving in France where we have a nou-nou that will take care of Julia during the day!
