the only earth?

some good things

My work in progress presentation is over. I went through my presentation much faster than I'd anticipated. I always worry about taking too much time, so I may have overcompensated. People said that it didn't seem rushed, so that's good. Adding useful "animation" always gets people on your good side. Anyway, I'm not so keen on taking up people's time with essentially null results.

After that, I went home to catch the end of a meeting. It was over early, so I had time to meet Rachel and Carole for some Frisbee on Rainer Vista. Even though it wasn't sunny, it was still good to have some springlike outdoor fun. I was definitely in a learning mode, but by the end I think I was getting the hang of the forehand.

The evil cold sore is going away. How convenient.

Writing a short abstract is especially challenging. It is really easy to ramble on and on, but being concise is a different story.

Word limits and character counts are my present enemy. In what world does 1950 characters equal 400 words? A world in which most words are four-letters long. That isn't a very interesting place, is it?
