Whirlwind

I have landed in Riverside, CA, for a visit with my brother and his famdam. Already it's apparent that this is going to be a whirlwind of a trip. I'm going to have to photograph his lab for you - many of you will find it highly entertaining, for many different reasons.

Today I'm hanging out on campus. Tomorrow I'll hang out with my sis-in-law and the wee babes (3-year-old nephew and 8-month-old niecelet). I'm glad to have had some practice living with a five-year-old. Children are cute and entertaining, especially when they aren't your own so you don't have to do all the work.

Thursday, I'll do the usual "meet-and-greet" that's part of being a visiting seminar speaker, and then I'll give the departmental seminar (no pressure!). Mid-day Friday, I'll head off to a biology-math meeting at Claremont. Sunday afternoon, I'll head over to Arizona. Monday, I'll probably give another seminar talk and meet with people. Maybe by next Tuesday I'll be able to hunker down somewhere for a bit.

It's challenging to manage combination work-leisure trips, but at least I enjoy my work.
