Landing in a new city

My move from Arizona to the great state of Texas is going fairly smoothly. I arrived late last week, as did the moving truck with all of my junk. So, today I decided to tackle the bureaucracy at the University of Texas. Getting my office was easy, as was an email account and an employee ID card. Parking will be harder. And harder yet is catching up on email. Collaborators have questions about upcoming telescope runs, I have a few papers I need to submit comments on, and I need to restart my research and write more papers. So my work is cut out for me!

See, life as an astronomer isn't all fame and fortune. Actually, it's very little of either, and moving certainly detracts from the fun of the job. But we'll see where things go in the next few weeks!
