Plan to night shift successful. Except that I didn't actually want to night shift. Managed to be in bed for 16 hours today; much of that was actually sleeping; I guess I had some missed sleep to cach up on. I may also be sick although I'm not showing any symptoms.

The upcoming IESG agenda is insane. I don't know how I'm going to manage to do a reasonable job of reviewing things. I think there are 26 ballots; most of them have one document although a few have two or three. Documents range from a few pages to really long and range in clarity from incredibly good to written on a collection of napkins in Klingon and translated through French to English by Google. The Klingon documents tend to also come from the camp that believe acronyms and cryptic diagrams make it all better. I gain a new appreciation for TAs who have to grade lots of papers. At least they have page length limits.

I'm enjoying work and enjoing the IESG job. There is way too much to do but it all is reasonably fun and I can see why it is all important to get done.
