I'll be going to present
I've managed to plan appropriately and have various theses and proposals to read and review on the long plane flight. Indeed, I probably would have said no to these requests if I hadn't had a plane flight scheduled. I don't write very well on flights, but reading is manageable (and even desirable, so I don't start mentally going "Are we there yet?" every few minutes, like my kids do verbally). So I'll have something to do besides watching TV or a movie for six hours. I do expect I'll be trying to say "no" to such requests more this year, so the flight gives me a chance to feel virtuous for hopefully at least a semester.
If you're there, and you see me, please feel free to say hi.
