Ready for Rotterdam

Well after lots of Hassle I am finally ready for my trip to Rotterdam for The IEEE ultrasonics symposium. It took me 2 attempts to get the submission for te proceedings to be accepted, I had to guess why it failed to process the document the first time I uploaded it. Had loads of 'fun' trying to format the document after my supervisor had editied it. He has a knack of completely messing up document formatting. The poster was even worse, followed by loads of stress trying to get the printing sorted. Next time I will go for an aural paper, as although I hate public speaking, the preparation is far easier (I did consider it this time but underestimated how much hassle the poster would be).
Now all I need to worry about is trying to find some clothes in my wardrobe slightly smarter than my usual jeans and polo shirt that actually fit me, and getting to birmingham airport on sunday morning. I probably ought to try and get some euro's from the post office as well, simply because it is cheaper than using the ATM when I get there.
I still have this nasty feeling that there is something important I have forgotten, but I'm not sure what, I've found my passport, flights are confirmed and I've booked a hotel. Kelvin will be fine as I have acquired a new lodger who will feed him and probably make even more of a fuss of him than I do.

  2. Oh – and all the best with the Symposium. Have you remembered to pack something light-hearted to read?

    Reading matter is sorted, I started reading ' a brief history of nearly everything' when I was at my parents last christmas, since when I have only actually got round to reading a couple of chapters. When I am at home I rarely get round to reading anything more subtsantial than Saturday's newspaper.
