Happy New Year!
We began 2012 yesterday in keeping with tradition, by doing a lot of lying around and recovering. We’d had a late night, which was made doubly late by my downstairs neighbor’s rockin’ party, which rocked on until 3.30 am. So there were naps and movies, and that was more or less the sum of the day.
Today, however, we’re back at it: the agenda includes both attempting to get my final presentation for #mla12 into reasonable enough shape (where “reasonable enough” equals being able to refrain from embarrassing myself in the event I don’t get any more time to work on it) and getting myself more or less packed and ready to fly out on Monday.
Here’s hoping that these two days bode well for the year to come: rest, relaxation; productivity, focus.
