I just submitted a conference paper. Not a very good paper, but considering how I have a history of getting rejected with good ideas and accepted with mediocre ones, that's probably a good thing. It would be good if I got accepted - it is the biggest conference of its kind. I would garner millions of Professional Goddess Points.
On the personal front, my mum is arriving from the home country tonight, so as mentioned, I may be off the radar for a while so as to spend Quality Time with her. Parents are important.
