seriously! boo. you guys suck. i had an excuse, i was at a music festival and the grounds had no service (plus who wants to be on their phone then) and then i was driving from the st. louis area to memphis, then to huntsville (both are about four hours) in one day.

the latter drive was actually really fun since i was by myself (we'd taken his car up to memphis so he had to drive it back) so i could play anything i wanted and just jammed the fuck out, dancing and driving.

We used to have a journal ranking system by discipline in Australia. It's been deprecated now, but I still have the History one saved. It had its flaws, including some bizarre low rankings or omissions, but I sometimes still use it as a tiebreaker when I can't decide where to submit something. I usually work by status; you tend to get to know the leading journals with time, and my attitude is to aim high or go home.

i'll probably have to bite the bullet and do that. i've been putting off working on it for a month now. since getting published in my case means also securing rights (since it's translations of journal articles), i've learned the hard way i gotta find a publisher first before getting the rights which baffles me but okay.

at least two works are in the same field so theoretically one journal could accept both.

Protip: falling asleep at 8:30pm means you WILL be awake at 2:00am, and sleep will not be possible.

Oh god, that just sounds tedious. Academic publishers can be horrible to work with too, or at least the large multinationals that own a shit-tonne of journals. I can't speak highly enough of how good Otago Uni Press have been to me with the book.

Good first half of rugby so far tonight. Both New Zealand and Wales have reason to feel aggrieved for having a try each robbed from them too - the NZ one was clearly downward pressure, not sure why the refs insisted on control when that's not in the rules, and for Wales right at the end of the half they were on the try line and I can't believe how many All Blacks were committing infringements and managed not to get penalised for it.

Oh geez this is getting really ugly for Wales. They look buggered.

Love watching the All Blacks dominate a game though.

The previous two games were the closest Wales have got to NZ in NZ. Today? 46-6. Ouch. They were cooked. Dagg's try at the end was great and really rubbed in the difference in fitness.

I thought Ian might be around for tonight's sport at least. This Wallabies vs England game is a cracker so far. Been watching it about as much as I've been watching the footy.

I was watching the All Blacks and Warriors at my girlfriend's place with a phone on zero battery!

The All Blacks were unwatchable by halftime - Wales were never in it. It would have been alarming if the Chiefs had the biggest winning margin on tour lol.

And I've now just polished off that aforementioned glass of red as a reward. Tastes damn fine.
