Went to Kazansky's with sal and adam. Got all worked up andn nervous about advisor meeting, but it went okay. (Kaustuv has gotten bitten by the linear-forall bug as well, it seems, judging from his conversation with Frank when I came) Got lots of good advice on slides and things. I'm amazed at just how much fluency I lack in the world of academic talks. I've definitely given a number of small-scale ones in the past, but I am becoming more acutely aware of how clumsy they were.
