First of all, I was awake before 8am on the one day I had to sleep in. Curses!
Second, I awoke with a very scratchy throat and also a stuffy nose alternating with a runny nose, aided and abetted by bouts of sneezing (which I've had for the last week or so). It took the conference and early wake-ups and my weekend lack of vitamins for this cold to sprout. Curses again!
It's noon on Sunday. I could have should have been back at the convention already.
I still want to go, kind of. I still think I *should* go; god forbid I don't have enough to turnkey to my unknown colleagues!
But the hermit in me wants to stay right here in my pjs, with a cozy soft blanket wrapped around me and a mug of spiced cider steaming away on my desk.
Screw academia, man. It's all about the R&R.
