Gianni Franceschini, my coauthor in the future, was trying to fit a model to the sporadic emails from me at nonstandard times and asked if there is a timezone called MST, Muthu's Standard Time. In Italy, there is the academic quarter (in Sweden, akademisk kvart): things start a leisurely 15 min after the scheduled hour. For me, time gets measured in different units, time it takes to get to work, via consumables: the half a cup of coffee to get to work from my place these days, the one cup it used to take a few weeks ago, and the cup of coffee, breakfast of bagels and the Times it took to get to work for more than a decade before that.
