I am starting to get excited about my trip to Chicago. I am giving a topology seminar at Urbana-Champaign on Tuesday, but I am going to fly out to Chicago on Saturday and stay with Vigleik and Shihchi for the weekend! It will be so good to see them, and I am bringing The Book, so hopefully we will get some cooking in. I'm also trying to schedule some time to see Bridget and Kari. Grace will be in town too (she is giving a seminar at UIUC 2 days after I am!), so we are going to try to meet up. It's always fun to see friends that you haven't seen in a while. Plus, I wrote my talk today, which definitely improved my attitude about the trip! It's always hard to get excited about giving a talk when you haven't prepared it yet. This afternoon I diligently sat in the fourth floor common space outside my office until my talk was written. I am more productive in that common space than I am in my office because there are no computers out there! Thus the internet, and my email, can't tempt me!
Time to go to book club...
