A long day; a very long day.
I ran all over campus picking up and dropping off transmittal forms for one federal grant proposal due Mon 01 Mar 2004, and talking to people about bits of another that is going out Thu 04 Mar 2004. I also finished up a letter of support for a state grant proposal.

I've been sleeping an unnaturally large number of hours!

  • Tue-Wed: 01:45 - 09:50

  • Wed-Thu: 02:15 - 08:40

  • Thu-Fri: 02:15 - 08:40

That's three days in a row of over 6 hours!

Edit, 03:30 CST Sat 29 Feb 2003: That's better. :-)
Mucho quizzage (Firefly, colors, non sequiturs, and rules)
