This is the week of the ESO deadline (3 proposals) and VICI pre-proposal deadline. The VICI is a giant grant and with the current trends basically being "just give the big grants to people who already had grants" attitude, I am not hopeful. Yet I have a great idea (STARSMOG) and I would not mind focusing exclusively on occulting galaxies for a few years. Let's see if anyone agrees. Wouldn't it be cool if they did.
twitter is ever more becoming a weird mix of whimsical (LEGO spaceman) and actually very useful connections with cool people around the globe.
In other news, the house is clean, lot so DIY done and hopefully I am recharged enough for this week. It's going to be a doozy.
