Science to do
I'm going to a scientific conference! I'm even presenting a poster! The last time I presented a poster it was literally made of posterboard; since then, I've earned a wacky liberal arts degree and become a professional grammar Nazi. The conference itinerary also includes such discomforting words as "banquet," "social," and "gala," yet it falls upon me to go and present the research. For science!
I'm sore tempted to bring my folding bike with me (especially since seeing this), although what with all the official banqueting and socializing and galavanting after the science is done, I don't know that I'll have any time for bike sightseeing.
