Whoa, Chronicle redesign. That’s a surprise!

Indeed. This one feels a little less underdone, though.

GREAT. BIG. TEXT.

Yeah, it’s soooo much cleaner. And my aging eyes are starting to appreciate the larger typefaces...

In DC for the next 15 hours. Hi, DC friends!

I know. Which explains my not arranging an Irish Whiskey trip. :(

Thank you! I am glad the spring sequester seems to have been lifted.

Yes, def.

Close Twitter for one minute to check into a hotel and suddenly all my beauty secrets are being given away.

*waves back*

Yes?

Spooky!

Alas, yes. I'll be back twice more in the next two weeks, though...

Will do!

Talk achieved. Heading back to Union Station. It’s been… a bit of a blur, DC. See you next week.

Thank you! Yes, back for another overnight on Monday for a CLIR meeting.

And then the following week for an NAS meeting! $$Speaking of, I should probably make a hotel reservation\!$$

So Completely Wishing For A Multi-Party DM, Because OMG.

Today’s quest: catch up on all the things. $$Reading, writing, reviews, laundry, all remain undone\.$$

Began by catching up on sleep. That was pretty successful.

I do not understand this “summer” to which you refer. I have a 12-month 9-to-5. :)

I was so sorry to hear of Herb’s passing, Jentery. All my best to you and all his loved ones.

I just had one of those runs that has me certain I COULD DO ANYTHING. A nice way to start wrapping up a gorgeous weekend.

Hey, are we at the same meeting tomorrow?

Treadmill, alas. This has been a key problem with Murray Hill: no good running path access.

Oh, yay! I’m there too. I am preparing my pantyhose and polishing my sensible pumps.

That sounds fabulous!

Just life. :)

Indeed. My previous employer’s board of trustees used to meet at the California Club, which always gave me the willies.

I guess it’s a good thing my partner isn’t coming with me. He could not abide.

Another day, another train to DC.

Amazingly, not only did I unpack but I also put the suitcase away! And then wondered why at 6am today…

Hey, do you have any pull there?

I find it increasingly hilarious that, when I’m stressed and typing too fast, I often accidentally sign off my emails with “All beset.”

Pro tip: When involved in a real estate transaction in today’s economy, it’s best to hire a lawyer who has an email account.

Such a lawyer might find the notion of money flying unassisted through the air from one account to another less bewildering.

In other news: we’re closing on Wednesday. And I could really use a Xanax.

Paper checks. Certified paper checks. From an in-state bank. Which I do not have.

You’re welcome! And yes, I do hope I catch you on one of these trips. I’ll be back May 14-15...

So, so happy that the storm hit while I was standing in the cab line. Thanks for the welcome home, NY.

Of course, now that I’m in the cab, the rain has all but stopped.

I am soaked to the skin, despite my umbrella. We could see the wall of rain marching down 7th Ave.

And of course the rain started again just in time for me to get out of the cab. At least I’m home now. And wine.

Hilariously, I dictated the last tweet. I said “end whine,” but I think my phone knew what I meant better than I did.

Eek! Very happy to be home.

Stupid Union Station. Stupid Murray Hill. Here’s another thumbs up for the new apt, a block away from a 2/3 station…

Packing has begun. $$T\-minus 16 days, but only a precious few available to pack\.$$

I hope I’ll get the chance to chat with you tomorrow or Wednesday!

What’s this? I’m on a train to DC? How surprising.

What is this “summer” of which you speak?

That sounds pretty sweet!

I was just getting a tour, but @wynkenhimself can probably give you details!

That’s a very Neal Stephenson detail!

I’m honestly not sure; I was visiting a friend who arranged for me to see some amazing things…

Woo-hoo! Well-deserved congratulations, prof.

I called; they said they’d look but have not called me back. I suspect they've found a new home. But thanks for the offer!

Train, definitely. No security theater, and way more humane.

There’s a fast-ish version, the Acela, that’s about 45 mins faster than the regular. Regular is about 3hrs 20mins.

Flying is obvs faster, until you add getting to the airport, security, etc.

The terrace of awesomeness. 13 days remaining.

I am mildly embarrassed to admit that I had a load of moving supplies delivered by Amazon. The good news is the boxes came in boxes.

My apartment is filled with boxes and boxes of boxes.

That would be the peak of late capital, wouldn’t it. They’re actually plastic storage bins. The new place has a storage space!

In fact, one set of plastic bins is in a manufacturer’s box, which is in an Amazon box. It’s the Russian nesting dolls of moving supplies.

Yes, I did!

Not today, alas, but as soon as I can not be in a meeting or on a train, yes.

It was most amazing! Thanks for setting it up and for picking such fantastic things to show me.

Awesome news; so glad you can celebrate it now!

Congrats, Dr. Snark!

There are mornings on which one wants to run around handing out little cards printed with Wheaton’s Law.

Sadly, yes. But it’s Friday, so I’m hoping it’ll improve from here!

Thanks! I’ll be on the lookout for it...

Thank you!

Thanks so much!

I would *love* that. Let me know how we can help.

Packing begins tonight in earnest. But first, a beer on the terrace of awesomeness. Happy Friday, all.

During a period of a few hours early this morning, somebody or somebot at UBC clicked through 3000+ pages on my website. I want to know why.

That’s my bet, too; the clicks came too fast. But it wasn’t a regular crawl; the bot triggered stats...

I hope $$a$$ the medication is doing what it’s supposed to do; $$b$$ what it’s not passes quickly; $$c$$ you’re recording this for later.

Have officially worn myself out packing. Was hoping to get a bit more done today than I have, but I think I’ll have a manageable last day.

I *think*.

Of course, that day is a week from tomorrow. In between, I get to go pack up an office full of books I haven’t seem for three years.

So who knows if I’ll even be able to bear the sight of boxes by next Monday.

I’ve got a two day meeting at USC, so I’m taking a few days to handle the office while I’m there. *dies of exhaustion*

Headed there tomorrow, alas! How long are you here?

Sounds like a great trip - have fun!

No! I’m so sorry to hear that.

DUDE. I had that same realization about a week ago. Why did they hide this from us in elementary school?

SRSLY.

A *terabyte*? Free? That’s… I’m… I don’t know what to think. I’ll look forward to seeing it. $$Phone is not cooperating\.$$

Tweeting from my flight. It’s like the future! See you all very soon. --K.

I am having a HARD TIME writing 250 words promising to say something new about a subject I’ve already published 20,000+ words about.

Hello!

True. I feel okay about it in giving talks but less in writing; repeating myself feels awfully dodgy, but avoiding it is hard.

Yo, dog.

By the by, if they tell you there’s turbulence coming in about an hour or so, they are NOT lying.

That is a super useful seat mate.

Weird? It’s only flying tweeting dogs. That’s just Monday.

Hello, Los Angeles! 8.40 feels very late here.

I’ll, uh, meet you in the lobby.

Also, I wasn’t kidding about the turbulence. Our pilot said we hit a shear where the wind suddenly changed from 30 to 100mph.

One awesome thing about traveling to the west coast is waking up at 5 am and Getting Things Done.

This morning, I have wrapped up and sent off one very overdue abstract, and am making good progress on one slightly less overdue one!

Announcing a new Digital Humanities series from Open Book Publishers, now seeking proposals: http://www.openbookpublishers.com/section/29/1/digital-humanities.

The following RT is the kind of thing that came up in the discussion...

RT @nowviskie: Helpful 2007 essay by @ekansa on indigenous/trad'l-knowledge IP & ethics of imposing "free culture:" http://po.st/u0MIfu …

It was a great discussion. The “resource flows” question was an important one, too; what happens when the work of publishing +

is devalued such that the labor is placed on the backs of volunteers and grad students?

There’s volunteer and there’s volunteer; some comes with the promise of professional reward and some doesn’t. +

The point that was being made was that removing existing resource flows produced a volunteerism without reward, +

which is very related to the end of academic labor issue you raise: dwindling volunteers who have hope of reward.

That would be ideal. The fear is that at many institutions the result wouldn’t be more support for making but instead +

“oh good, you don’t need those \$ anymore.”

Fab conversations at #SCIspa concluded, I’m on a train out to Claremont to clean out my @pomonacollege office. Poignant tweets to follow.

Thank you, Cathy! I’m happy about the move, of course, but still sad to see the end of an era.

Very nice, and quite accurate. Way more so than nostalgia.

Thanks! I hope your summer is starting well.

Thanks for the shout-out! I hope we can keep pressing on these issues.

Phew. Good luck — I’ll hope to hear good things!

Am no kidding already on the cusp of just abandoning everything in this office. Except that R’s got tons of stuff in here too.

I can throw out a lot. Anything that’s unbound paper is going. Probably half of my books will be given away. But the stuff +

that’s not mine can’t be tossed without consultation. And the consultee is in freaking PARIS.

There will be a ton, I think; I’ll let you know.

Called it a day. Tomorrow morning, early, I will pick up a load of boxes and start the sorting and packing in earnest.

RT @OpenBookPublish: Instructions on how to submit a proposal to our new #OpenAccess #DigitalHumanities Series available here: http://t.co/…

Okay! Off to buy a pile of boxes, get another cup of coffee, and get this packing up thing underway. WIsh me luck.

Replying to @jasonrhody, @shanakimball and @jcmeloni

Thanks! I am prepared to operate today wholly without ruth.

The good news: I’m making decent progress, time-wise. The bad news: I’ve packed 20 boxes and have barely made a dent in the problem. *weeps*

I missed the move news! Is this a household consolidation? Must be overwhelming...

Phew. Joining forces is good! The whole purge-and-move thing is exhausting, though.

The first unmitigatedly happy part of packing: found my copy of The Fifty-Year Sword, bought years ago in Amsterdam.

Also just found the gift my very first Marxism & Cultural Studies class gave me at the end of the semester.

As did I!

Seriously, on that copy of The Fifty-Year Sword: I’d started thinking that I’d dreamed buying it. It was a pretty vivid dream, though!

Okay, @kfitz, step away from the internet and PACK A BOX.

Thanks! I hope you’re doing well.

The good news: I’m over 2/3 done with the bookshelves! The less good news: I’ve got 32 boxes to ship, and I’m expecting at least another 10.

The problem is that 20 of the 30 boxes contain books that do not belong to me, and their owner wants them.

Me, I’ve but mine down by 50%.

Capped off a long, painful day of packing by discovering that I’d done a lousy enough job of parking this morning to be left a nasty note.

*sigh* Today was a difficult day. Tomorrow will be better.

I’m finding myself a little amazed by these: http://www.parkslopefamilycircus.com/

Good grief: http://www.nietzschefamilycircus.com/perm.php?c=106&q=71

One never does.

How I managed all those articles, before Zotero & the iPad. Only mildly sad to be dumping the collection.

No, for real: an entire 4-drawer filing cabinet of them. I will hope that anything I need has been digitized.

Don’t get me started on the books; I’m abandoning this much, and it pains me to do so. But photocopies… eh.

Books-wise, I’m leaving this behind, and there’s a little ache there.

But then, I have to move all this, so…

This whole office is gorgeous. I’m trying not to look at it too closely.

Every. Freaking. Book.

Not today, alas. Perhaps tomorrow!

It does! Who needs all that stupid space? Not me, that’s who.

I did. Having a little OCD helped.

There certainly should be!

Alas, the shelves are immobile. But do pop by & take a look at the books.

Whatever you don’t want will go to the prison library project.

I’m going to run out & grab a burrito. Should be back in the office in about 30 mins. Anytime thereafter!

Hey, my prediction was right -- today has been better! Packing is done. A bit more recycling to go, plus mover-finding.

Oh yes!

About to get myself a monster chile relleno burrito from Patty’s - one of the first places I ate when I moved to Claremont 15 years ago.

Pretty much - here, at least! Still have packing to do at home on Monday. :(

It. Is. Done. $$Now to find a mover to haul it all away\.$$

When I visited Temple University in March, I did an interview with Fred Rowland: http://sites.temple.edu/humansciences/2013/05/11/kathleen-fitzpatrick-on-scholar...

I have been sleeping SO well.

UGH PACKING ALL THE THINGS. I send you energy and the will to purge.

No worries! I got a lot done last weekend, so I think I’m in decent shape.

Finished up the packing yesterday, and had a lovely barbecue with some friends, followed by 10 hours of sleep. Am a whole new person.

Today I get to hang out in pajamas and maybe write something. I have coffee and a lovely grey SoCal morning. Anything could happen!

Oh, a little stress and a little sleep deprivation and I’m sure she’ll reemerge. :)

Oh hello new talk I’m giving on Thursday morning after moving on Tuesday. Perhaps I should finish writing you.

Yes, absolutely: more attention to rhythm & sound; less formally structured sentences.

I’m so sorry to hear you’re not doing well, Tim. Sending good thoughts your way.

Spent all day in pajamas. Wrote half a talk & half a blog post. Last errand tomorrow morning & then back to NYC to finish packing there.

1 apartment $$NYC$$ plus 1 office $$SoCal$$. Equals 1 move too many!

Thanks to everybody who helped make this a fabulous SoCal sojourn. Beginning the trek homeward shortly.

On board at ONT, headed for IAH and EWR. Home about 1am. One last day of packing tomorrow, and then on to the new place on Tuesday!

And then I leave for the UNT open access symposium on Wednesday. I should get a chance to unpack in August, I think.

Undoubtedly. But I do look forward to slowing it down some soon!

I’ll look forward to it!

EWR. Soooo close.

Home sweet home - for one more day.

Q: I’m about to run out to the new apt with the contents of my fridge & some basic cleaning supplies. What other essentials should go today?

I like the way you think, Jacob.

Hmmm. Will need here tmw morning, but will be sure to pack in well labeled box!

Ooh yes. Good thought.

Indeed!

Ha! I always pack the bedding last & make the bed first thing on the other end, for immediate collapsing purposes.

Absolute necessities, all.

The cats, incidentally, are pretty sure they know what’s up, and they are not pleased.

Yeah, I’ll cab them over tomorrow night, I think, once the movers are done on the other end.

Why is it I can live with my own filthy fridge for months but can’t bear putting food in a fridge someone else has left a tiny bit icky?

Okay, first suitcase full of stuff is in the new apt. Painting is not quite done, but what is done looks awesome.

Now to finish up packing here & get ready for the movers: 9am tomorrow.

White, all of it. No time to pick colors -- need to live in the place a while.

You saw the pix, right? Several colors, none of them quite right. I liked the olive in the LR but it needed work, so: white for now.

Here’s the set from the inspection again: http://www.flickr.com/photos/kqf/sets/72157632802921265/

The blue in the BR was particularly problematic, and the 2nd BR was done in this faux-texture thing I hate.

One last evening on the terrace. It’s been awesome.

Yes, that’s been my view for the last two years. The move is tomorrow, at last.

I have just run out of tape. Alas, I think I ran out of the motivation to go out and get more tape a couple of hours ago.

Got it together to go out for tape. Can neither confirm nor deny that chocolate ice cream has also been acquired.

All that remains is the taping up of the last boxes and the waiting for the movers. #letsdothis

I even got up early this morning and washed my sheets & towels. I am a moving machine.

Movers are here. 20 minutes in, huge piles of stuff are gone. Totally getting it done!

Truly. They’ll be packing the kitchen for me, which I will genuinely enjoy.

No kidding. They’re amazingly efficient.

The foreman of my moving crew has got to be 6’4”. He just picked up my 50” tv $$flat screen, but not at all a light one$$ like it was nothing.

It would’ve been cost-efficient for me to have the whole place packed too, but they needed a 2nd day & I only had 1.

With each move I acquire one more box that will never get unpacked. Someday I’ll be brave enough just to toss them.

Cats are closed in 2nd bdrm. I hear weird scratching noise - from upstairs? - & look up to see both cats sauntering across the living room.

I am determined to unpack the boxes of mystery this time. I’ll probably end up tossing the contents.

Cats are bloody determined to escape, no matter how much I emphasize that they’d be happier where they are.

They wouldn’t. This much activity would just produce frantic attempts to escape.

2 hrs in. All boxes & most furniture are down & loaded. Kitchen is being packed and tables are being dismantled. I’m betting we’re out by 1.

#singitsister

1pm may have been a little optimistic but it won’t be far off. Kitchen/china packing nearly complete. Dining rm table disassembly underway.

Amazing thing number 1: Time-Warner Cable is scheduled to turn on my internet this afternoon between 4 and 7.

Amazing thing number 2: they just called to see if they could come early, because the tech is in the area.

$$Alas, I am not\. But he told me to call once I get there\. We’ll see\!$$

I can’t wait to have you over. How are things on your end?

Okay, I was *way* over optimistic. I’m now worried about whether they’ll be able to unload before time is up at the new place. #arghmoving

Out of the apartment with everything except the cats. Now to the new place for unloading, and then back to terrify the kittehs even more.

Am in the new apt. Painter is still here painting. Truck not yet here but the super $$who is young & fab$$ says they can unload late. #breathe

Before.

Indeed!

Oh man yes. Painting will be continuing for another couple of days, I think. Here’s hoping the cats behave.

Hey guess what! At some point in the coming days I should be able to think about something other than real estate or moving!

Backatcha!

I know you must. And I didn’t have to wrangle a small person!

I’ve been warned that maintenance will go up, but was quoted a pretty minimal annual increase. We’ll see.

They’re still at the old place. Moving makes them very unhappy. I’ll go back and get them later tonight.

Okay it’s a total mess right now but this apartment is going to rock. Someday.

I would pretty much pay cash dollars for somebody to come in here and find me a fork.

Spent 30 mins on the phone with TWC trying to get my internet to work. Gave up on civilization, @ayjay; am eating leftovers with my fingers.

I’m all set now - thanks for asking, though.

Holy cats. This faster internet is actually faster.

Are they at least synchronized?

Thanks! They are right on the cusp of doing so. $$Of course, I’m flying to Dallas tomorrow\. But let’s leave that aside\.$$

Now that’s funny. I would never have known that they were floating rather than embedded but for your experiment.

Seriously, this extreme internet is so fast your tweets arrive before you’ve even sent them.

I *know.* I am waiting for the catch.

Okay, the internet is working and the bed is made. Time to go pick up two sorely pissed-off cats.

Cats obtained. Now to survive the cab rise home.

Hey, happy birthday! I hope it’s been a great one.

Mission accomplished. $$Phew\.$$

The first thing to note about the new place? It’s QUIET. After two years of sirens screaming up 3rd Ave, I’d forgotten what that’s like.

Park Slope.

I have found the down side of having movers pack my kitchen: I have fifteen enormous boxes labeled “Kitchen.” Where’s the coffee grinder?

This is Brooklyn. The coffee grinder is on the back of an antique bicycle pedaled by a mustachioed young man.
