So close and yet so far...



My department seminar for next week is hosting Milton Love. I've never gotten to see him talk or meet him, but I've soooo wanted to. I even wanted to go to UC Santa Barbra to work in his lab. This was before I saw the light, and started working with invertebrates.

One problem. I am teaching a lab at that time. Ahh! Can I end class an hour early?

OMG can you switch with someone? How could you go without seeing him when he's sooooo close?

I am trying to get some one to cover for the last hour and a half of lab. I've even offered to grade their student papers in return. I hope I'll be able to get some one... (cross fingers)

Try to schedule in a 30 min. meeting with him or weasel your way into a group lunch or dinner.

They generally go for a beer afterward, but considering it's the day before my defense, I don't think I'll be up for much!

At least I did get someone to switch with me, so I'll get to go to the talk and the 'mixer' before the talk.
