So, one page of German is on my agenda for the day. That covers about half the day.
If only my computer would arrive, I know exactly what I need to do. But no, I need to be able to achieve work today even without it. I haven't read Science and Creation yet, that's an option. (And no, it has nothing to do with Darwinism, let alone the 19th, 20th, or 21st centuries.) Actually, I do have a list of odds and ends which qualify as PhD, if not dissertation, related: compile list of interesting conferences and their deadlines; order 2 books which are VERY relevant to work; and write up capsule summaries of topics I would be interested in developing into a conference paper. There. That's a day's worth of work.
3 hours for German. 3 for making conference list and also writing at least 1 summary. Ordering the books might take half an hour if I'm easily sidetracked by the rest of the catalogs. And my backup activity will be reading that slightly-more-related-than-the-last-oe book.
(C. suggested I write a book review of the vaguely-related book so I would remember what it was about. I did it last night. Good me. I'm a lousy note-taker while reading since I either write down things randomly interesting, or so many things that the book is never finished because I'm so busy writing.)
