Is the eleventh time the charm?

I just had my eleventh proposal to the National Science Foundation submitted. I've had nine rejections so far, but maybe this will be the lucky one. Though I doubt it, as I was so strapped for time that I just never quite got around to phoning the program director, which everyone tells me is key to getting a proposal funded.

Yet I persist anyway.

Also whipped together an internal proposal for equipment money. Also spent a good chunk of today trying to fix a mess concerning graduate student pay and experimenting with a new voice recorder for podcasting and getting tomorrow's lecture up and running... and so it goes.

The fun never stops.
