I started putting together a dataset and realized that I'll really need to dig out some notes from survival analysis. I'm going to look at hypertension, treatment, and guidelines, etc. So, it's a good excuse to try to remember some forgotten stuff from last year.
On the way home, I picked up a copy of The Believer for me, along with some high quality coloring books--Harry Potter Sticker Fun and Fairies & Flowers--for Amber.
Ellen picked me up, and after running some errands we went to the hospital, where I tried to convince Amber to name the kids after colors and we watched "Mr. Personality", one of the most freakish reality shows I've ever seen. If you haven't heard about this yet, Monica Lewinsky hosts as a formerly (?) superficial woman pretends to be a princess who will chose a man based on his personality (since all of the suitors wear really creepy rubber masks). The show is bizarre on so many levels, I dare you not to watch at least once.
I don't know when I'll get around to actually reading The Believer: I still have homework for tomorrow, a stack of unread magazines, a huge chunk of Midnight's Children, etc. etc. It really looks great in terms of both content and design; and I couldn't resist it's charms.
