Hide the poker chips, the boss is coming

NSF logoThis has been a frantic week, mainly due to HESTEC. I've blogged a bit about one of my major commitments, working with our visiting REU mentor and HESTEC speaker Fran├žois Therrien. (Who, it must be said, rocks.)

And it's not over yet. In some ways, the most frantic and stressful part of the week is tomorrow, when we get a visit from Dr. Arden Bement, who is the director -- that is to say, the big boss man -- of the National Science Foundation. That is, the organization paying for my REU program and some of my Marmorkrebs research.

Gonna have to find a clean shirt to wear tomorrow.
