Thanks for the olives--but what the hell did you think I was going to do with two cases of them? I said I was craving some, not that I was opening a Greek diner. Sorry to bitch, but its not as though I can get through them by asking people to share. "Hey James, want to come over for an olive tonight?" Dont think so...
Anyway, Ill see what I can find out about Stoney Grove from this end. I was wondering how long it would take you to get sucked back into the academic round. I personally would never volunteer to give a paper if I knew I NEVER had to again, but hey, I guess youre getting a trip to Tuscany out of it. Hope you enjoy the wine. Have to put any travel plans to England on hold for awhile--I got a nasty note from Michaelson saying if he didnt get my revised proposal in by July 1, I dont have the proverbial snowballs chance for funding next semester. So, its time to write something, and fill in the blanks later.
Cant wait to hear about your hermit. Ive never met one (I guess theyre not attracted to my personality...). Is he hairy? Does he speak? Please, tell me more...
