It is 11:30 pm. I have officially spent nothing short of 17 hours today writing an internal grant proposal for some exhibit funding for next fall. It's not a particularly onerous grant application, but the topic is somewhat outside my area of expertise, and I had to come up with justifications/framing language that relates to our official university mission (don't get me started). Plus, I had to demonstrate some matching funds from other sources. So, I think it's done, except for the brief letter of support from my chair. I will clearly have to write that myself tomorrow morning and get his signature on it. No grading done today, but I did get to mix some Curious George and King Kong into all the scientific discourse. To be a fly on the wall of the readers. And to get some time to myself, and some sleep. Yes, that too would be good.
