Ищем русско-говорящую няню для очаровательного 3х месячного мальчика. Няня нужна с начала августа, первые 3 месяца на 3 дня в неделю (с августа по октябрь), а с ноября - на полную ставку (5 дней в неделю).
Любовь к детям, опыт ухода за младенцами и references обязательны. Няня должна иметь легальный статус для работы в Америке и говорить по-анлийски, чтобы она могла общаться с моим мужем-американцем.
Мы живем в 5 минутах ходьбы от остановки метро Davis Sq. on the Red Line.
Пишите по адресу: eriksu00nannysearch@meepity.net
Спасибо заранее!

I've submitted the paper for the conference proceedings yesterday. The deadline was last Thursday, and then they extended it till yesterday which was very sweet. Now I have piles of papers, copies of different versions of the manuscript and notes all over my 2 desks. I was thinking I should sort them out but it's such a big project, I don't know where to start...
On the separate note I want to promise never to use Axum again for making plots. Not sure if I can keep the promise, but the experience of the past 2 weeks made me hate this software more than anything else... It's old (1999) and has a horrible user interface. The plots at the end look pretty nice but I'm not sure it's worth the pain. One thing that made me really hate it was that I had to make the same plots 4 times in a row (starting from scratch each time) because for some reason they would just disappear without a trace from the graph after a few modifications I did.
I think I'm going to put make a more consistent set of notes on stuff that was in my paper... exciting...

i have so much to do, I don't have energy to start... I need to finish the paper for the conference proceedings by tonight, because today is the deadline for submitting it, and it's almost done, I just need to push myself, but I simply feel so tired.I went to bed at 2.30 am, which isn't that great considering that I wanted to day-shift (since I just came from a vacation where we stayed in B&Bs so we kind of day-shifted... ).

The poster is printed out and is now safely rolled up in a tube. I think printing the poster is even more stressful than putting it together, because it would be really silly if you print something this big (and expensive) and then discover that something is wrong....
The trip to Copy Tech was a little stressful too. When you come there to print posters they're printing out a proof which is actually useful, as opposed to what I was trying to use as a proof by changing the size of the slide to A4 and printing it out on an ordinary printer - half of the elements get blown out of proportion...The proof that they print at Copy Tech though is the scaled reduced version of the actual poster and thus is actually helpful. So... after the first proof I thought I'll have to go back to the office and change the colors on the plots because all the curves on the plots that were originally red and maroon looked indistinguishable. I almost completely freaked out because there was no time to go and change everything and I felt really stupid that I didn't see it before. Then the nice guy at the Copy Tech printed the second proof on a different and apparently more crappy printer and the colors actually turned out better, so I just decided to print it as it was and see what happens... (This didn't particularly make sense because the bog printer for posters was much better than the crappy printer that produced a better - color-wise - proof, but...)
I went swimming and tried not to think what will happen if the poster would turn out with all the colors screwed up...  Finally I  picked up the poster and yay!!! - it was alright! 
Now I can forget about it for a few days (I just have not to forget to bring it to the conference :) ).
So much for the stressing about poster-making... maybe next time I should give a talk instead.
