I’ll have a link as soon as it appears.

Victoria was pretty grand–the conference, the sleep, and the weather!

He was a regular on the Victoria listserv for a while–I guess while he was working on ‘The Crimson Petal and the White.’

Lucky you, going to Victoria. But I never have conference envy (except for the sleeping part, about which you are perfectly right!).

Not so much.

I can read novels just fine, but I don’t much like grading or writing on planes.

(And NAVSA will be nearer your home turf in 2 years, no? And somewhat nearer next year.)

I always interpret ‘travel time’ as ‘uninterrupted, peaceful time to spend being productive’, which doesn’t make for a good start in terms of realistic planning.
