Back from MLA trip. Exhausted. Didn’t sleep well during the trip — probably due to massive doses of decongestants I had to take to keep from sneezing. Did get to catch up with friends. Delivered a paper. Saw my advisor (unplanned). Ate delicious food. Met at least one new person I’ll probably try to befriend. More next year. Have fun y’all. I’m going to curl up in bed now and try to rest though I can’t seem to sleep. PS Giles has been running up to me, lunging, woofing, and then running away. What does it mean?
