Oh, no, it’s a year-round kinda fool.

Tue Apr 01 16:50:22 +0000 2014

Replying to @rdhyee and @naypinya

There is a fool involved, but not of the April variety.

Tue Apr 01 16:53:09 +0000 2014

Replying to @naypinya and @rdhyee

Beyond the possibility: the issue is recurrent cuts. In adjusted $, the NEH budget is a tiny fraction of what it was.

Tue Apr 01 17:00:05 +0000 2014

Replying to @naypinya and @rdhyee

And the agency’s funding ratio is currently the lowest it has been in its history.

Tue Apr 01 17:00:26 +0000 2014

Replying to @naypinya and @rdhyee

Percentage of applications that are able to be funded.

Replying to @abbymullen

It is April, and there is a fool involved, but alas, no.

Good morning, Vienna! After a slightly bumpy start, I succeeded in getting 9ish hours of sleep last night. Now breakfast and a bit of work.

Fri Apr 04 07:41:10 +0000 2014

We'll see how well my jetlag avoidance program for this trip works. Arrived yesterday morning, ate breakfast, took 2-hr nap, walked 4 hours.

Fri Apr 04 07:42:46 +0000 2014

Had a lovely dinner and managed to keep myself awake until after 9 pm. And then couldn't really get to sleep until 11.15, but slept until 8.

Fri Apr 04 07:44:26 +0000 2014

I'm hopeful that all that walking in the sun helped with the clock-resetting. But I guess I'll find out.

Fri Apr 04 07:46:30 +0000 2014

Other tips on jetlag mgmt for short business trips, for what they're worth: eat twice as much breakfast as usual, and drink ALL THE COFFEE.

I was very lucky that my director forced me to think abt the arc of my dissertation & the narrative it related.

Once at a party I gesticulated wildly with a beer bottle, which slipped out of my fingers & landed perfectly on its bottom.

I brought an entire room of people to a halt. Finally someone said, “Do that again.”
