silver lining

Ah, end of semester...

What I should be doing is reading, catching up on the literature and thinking deep thoughts.

What I will be doing is proposals, proposals, and peering at drafts that my diligent students and collaborators have put together with amazing synchrony.

The good news is that while I would normally be looking at doing six proposals this summer, so many Requests for Proposals have been cancelled that I can only do three, realistically.

Of course with normal odds, doing six gives you expected value of one awarded... with fewer opps, the odds against each are likely to be worse. Not such good news.
