I'm happily back from a lovely holiday weekend, but it's been a flurry of dust over here as I try to finish the reference collection weeding for the June 1st deadline. I came across some *very* scary reference items. Books made up entirely of some sort of secret statistical code, and historical indexes to conference proceedings and technical reports in the hard sciences. *shudders* I just put them back carefully, lest they hurt me.
It's been a busy week, and tomorrow through Friday I'm bound for the annual Writing Retreat. Well, I say "bound for" as if I'm actually going somewhere, when it's actually at a conference center right on campus. However, I love the writing retreat each year, as it provides an uninterrupted time to get some professional writing done. They fill us up with lots of provided coffee and heavy carbohydrates, and we spit out an article that we can submit for publication in the professional literature.
Now that I'm thinking about it, it's pretty likely that I'll post over the course of the retreat; after a while, I need a break from phrasing everything real carefully/professionally and making things that are a tad dull sound very stimulating.
