Lots to discuss, but no time

How is it that I find myself too busy to blog while unemployed?

My parents have been in town for a visit, and that has been interspersed with a quick trip I made to Vienna to give a paper at a conference, which happened to be held at the Natural History Museum there.  In the last 10 days, I've actually been to three different museums and two special exhibits.  We went to the Rothko exhibit at the Tate Modern, and also took a quick spin through the "Renaissance Faces" exhibit currently at the NG in London.  Also, my husband and I recently became members of the Tate.  So there's a lot to discuss.  Hopefully I'll pull it together to write posts about the two special exhibits before I forget what I saw, and there's probably also a post in the works about whether museum membership is worth the cost, and possibly about the conference/museum in Vienna (I'll try to make it relevant).  

Also, it wasn't really a museum, but the conference organised a field trip to the oldest wine press/winery in Vienna, Nikolaihof, where we had a crazy tour from this overly enthusiastic, and possibly somewhat drunk, Austrian man, followed by dinner where I sat across the table from possibly the drunkest man I've ever met.  So that may be worthy of a post as well, if I can find a way to claim that the winery is a "museum."  We'll see.
