Another quiescent period, but I've been at CERN all week (ATLAS trigger/physics week) and now in the land of Lordi (Finland for those who don't pay attention to Eurovision winners, or read articles in the Times about them...). Actually, I'm at a workshop in Jyvaskyla, a few hundred kilometers north of Helsinki, staying in a gleaming, white hotel on an frozen lake. And there's a suspension bridge just in front that leads to the gleaming, white Physics Department here at the University of Jyvaskyla.
It's looking like a rough week, with a student lecture to deliver on Monday ("Introduction to Hydrodynamics" - and I don't even do hydro) and a talk to give on Tuesday morning ("Consequences of Early Thermalization" etc., so once again, with feeling -- and more details). But no pain, no gain, I suppose.
