Why can’t it be Monday? I don’t want to wait any longer. I am ready. Okay, so no I’m not. I have read most of the handouts, but what little homework I’ve gotten done in advance is in a notebook…somewhere. (note to self: quit loosing things) So instead of catching up on all the tv that I’ve missed over the past couple weeks, I could be working on homework for the conference, but that would be entirely too rational. Instead I’ve been preparing for the conference by catching up on lost sleep, tv, and eating. I’m also planning to get in a good hour of yoga, so once the conference starts, I can spend all my waking (non working) hours engrossed in absorbing every ounce of knowledge I can squeeze into my poor addled brain.
