I warned you when I volunteered to co-host that you would have to accept prompt-less weeks. This is one such week, because I've Got Nothing. --Unless, in some weird way, "drawing a blank" happens to inspire you somehow? That would be neat. Or you can come up with your own prompt! What question do you want to answer?
In the meantime, here are last week's goals.
1) Finish and record conference talk
2) Make 3 figures for Albatross
3) Outline steps needed for local paper
4) Take one day in the week for doing only research-related things
5) Address difficult professional society issue
6) My intentional thing for the week: outdoor lunch with sweet colleague I have not seen in ages
