private thoughts of a physicist and chessplayer
“I’ve had a perfectly wonderful evening. But this wasn’t it.”
Great quote! I’ll remember that one. Visit me at http://www.SandySays1.wordpress.com and read my latest post for some laughs.
couldn’t agree more… here’s an actual live comment from an archetypical physicist-in-a-non-specialist-conference evening — know just a handful of people, been dumped by the only potential dinner companion, too tired after having traveled here, ergo fetched some pizza and went back to the hotel for some late-evening draft reviewing…
Wow, we were given a truly wise and entertaining quote. But this wasn’t it. 😉
You mean yours I guess 🙂
I cannot help smiling at your bad evening… I’ve been there, done that! I remember many a conference when I felt stranded with nobody to talk to. It has not happened that frequently in the most recent years, but my penchant for conferences off the beaten path still puts me in that situation sometimes.
You know what I do in cases as such ? I blog a lot 🙂
Sandy: that’s funny that your icon is a dog. Sandy was my sister’s dog. But she was a Cocker Spaniel. What breed/race are you?
Sandy is a Golden Retriever/Labrador. But, without offense to Sandy, Border Collies are the best dogs ever. Very friendly!
