i did so much math today that my eyes are crossing and my heart is racing. i finally found someone to talk about ricci flow with. he wants to prove some topological result using cross curvature flow. i get to do computations. that ostensibly i can make progress with. fun.
i booked my flights for pittsburgh and berkeley. my nephew walks now. the last time i saw him, he was boring and drooly. i am going to be in berkeley for almost a week, including one conference-free day. it will be weird to go back there, considering.
