At our weekly meeting yesterday, I mentioned that I expected this week to involve a lot of "high-overhead context switching", a phrase my boss found fascinating (she seems to take great interest in the computing-metaphor-infused turns of phrase I sometimes use), and so far it has been. Today was annoyingly unproductive.

Well, it felt unproductive, anyway. I mean, I did have a meeting with our GIS expert that advanced my understanding of map projections enough that I now fully grasp what the modelers need to put into the metadata of their files and why, and I also got a chance to look at some other sample datafiles and see that the metadata currently being providing is totally jacked-up and inconsistent, but that wasn't really what I was planning on doing, and it didn't take all that much time, it was just a set of interactions that really could only happen today. I'm dissatisfied because I didn't get anything done on the things I wanted to get done.

Probably it's spring fever. I feel restless, and I have nervous energy that's hard to focus. I needed to go somewhere that wasn't home and wasn't work this evening, so I went and got bi-bim-bap for dinner. It helped. Still feeling off-wavelength.
