neither here nor there ..

some months ago i applied for funding to attend a thematic semester at IPAM. recently, my application was rejected ..
.. which is actually relieving;

i'm getting really tired of crossing the atlantic [1]
and traveling to the west coast (from here) is noticeably painful.
well: their loss, then. q-:

maybe this means that i can stay put and actually get some work done; it's not like i have a lot of time left in finland, anyway ..

[1] on the way to a conference, sometimes i have a small hope that my flight would be canceled and that i can stay home. it's like the old joke about the mathematician, the wife, and the mistress; imagine how much work i could do if my work colleagues thought i was away and the conference participants thought i was at home!
