Zoom! Part 2

The airshow is underway, with planes in formation zooming around overhead, diving and swooping, forming hearts and curlicues in the air out of smoke, and even doing rainbow-color smoke sequences. The UK's Red Arrows are part of the show. We were walking back from brunch and C. mentioned he wouldn't know which planes they were unless he saw what color their paint job was. Just then, one flew speedily past... painted bright red. The sounds of the airplanes going back and forth is distracting. I keep wanting to go back outside and see them performing their stunts. We really do have a good view of most of it.

But for now I have a task to do - one whose express goal is trying to make me more excited and therefore more motivated about all my work. If, perhaps, a bit indirectly. I figured it was about time I had a 'business card'-type website somewhere to my name.

Part of my urgency in 'rounding up the rest of the most obvious sources early next week is that the deadline for Kalamazoo conference papers is the fifteenth of September. And while I could easily draft another fun MA paper spinoff, I'd rather the K'zoo paper be a carrot for my REAL work.
