Wishes and propositions for 2008 January 3, 2008Posted by dorigo in personal, physics.
I wish 2008 will indeed be the starting year of LHC, and I wish I will be able to run an analysis job on real CMS DATA!, possibly without segmentation faults and core dumps…
I wish Marco’s graduation will be smooth and I wish we will produce a CMS document describing a full-fledged analysis of the tth search in the missing Et + multijet channel.
I wish this blog will continue to be read and appreciated by whomever wants to keep up to date with recent results in experimental particle physics, and I wish I will continue to have a sufficient amount of units of energy * time to keep at least some of my posts interesting.
I wish Ezio and I will do a good job as coordinators of the physics meetings of the CMS-Padova group, and I wish I will see many good analyses starting within our group.
I wish I will attend more marriages in 2008 than in 2007, and I wish I will attend fewer funerals. I wish I won’t be a protagonist in any of those occasions.
And now, a few propositions.
I am going to lose those ten pounds I have put up last year.
I am going to use ten seconds more than I would think necessary on each slide I show, whatever the content.
I am going to drive ten miles per hour slower than I would find acceptable, wherever I am going.
I am going to spend ten minutes less in front of the computer at home every day.
I am going to wake up ten minutes earlier on weekdays, and ten minutes later on weekends.
