Happy New Year

I know, I know, another long blog hiatus. Not a way to end — or start — a year. What can I say? I’ve been busy.

When you’re a student, the time in between semesters is a vacation. When you’re faculty, it’s often the most intense time of the year. You assume you can get “real work” done then, so you make a long list of things to finish before school starts up again. While I wasn’t teaching the past two weeks, I wrote a research paper and did a good deal planning work for Supernova, not to mention grading 58 bluebooks. It was a bit of a sprint, but it’s done. Tomorrow I head out to LA with my family, to spend some time with my parents.

I’m really looking forward to 2005.
