This is it, the final reminder to submit your CMEpalooza Abstract by the end of the day today in order to be considered for the spring agenda.
That’s all I have. No clever lists of the top 5 concerts I attended in 2021 (5. Flaming Lips, 4. Chris Stapleton, 3. Lord Huron, 2. Avett Brothers, 1. Wilco/Sleater-Kinney) or long expositions on how your Wordle strategy reflects your general outlook on life (constantly changing your starter word = optimist; using one starter word = realist.) We don’t have time to discus the best Starburst flavor (it’s orange) or analyze whether Barry Bonds would have been elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame if he had simply smiled more (he would have. See: David Ortiz.)
We will have to save all those topics for another time. For today, we need to concentrate on one thing and one thing only: submitting your abstract for CMEpalooza Spring. Go do it now.
Maybe next time we can review my preferred coffee brewing vessel (Chemex) or the proper method for adding absinthe to a Sazerac cocktail (rinse the glass with it.) But that will have to wait for later. We are laser focused today. I’m not even going to mention the best TV show of 2022 (Station 11.) We are all far to busy submitting abstracts for that kind of a distraction.
