Four things that will CHANGE YOUR LIFE!

Or maybe just brighten your morning a bit.

  1. Voting is still happening for the Mr. Wizard Moment of Science Challenge. Go! Vote!
  2. Skeptics’ Circle #65 is now up over at Neurologica! No, I’m not in it because I’m a forgetful bastard. Yes, Steve even reminded me last night after the podcast.
  3. I’ve chosen an interview subject for Round Three of Public Radio Talent Quest! I’m not sure whether to tell you all or keep it a surprise . . . I’ll just say for now that I’m very excited and looking forward to a fun discussion that will be recorded for posterity. Mega thanks to everyone who helped with suggestions.
  4. I ran three miles this morning! That has nothing to do with anything, really, but I wanted to brag. Oh and also I only ran them because I had to, because I rode my bike to Jamaica Pond, got a flat, and had no money, ID, T-Pass, or cell phone so I had to run home in time to shower and go to work.

  1. Re #4:

    Nice going! What'd you do with the bike during all of this running, out of curiosity? Just cast it aside into Jamaica Pond, then? :-P

  2. I still can't believe Rebecca ran 3 miles. Now Rebecca you didn't walk any of that 3 miles did you? ;)

  3. Expat: locked up by the pond all day. The rain started at four, I got there around 6:30 and had to walk it the three miles home in the rain.

    Xenu: oh, there was some walking alright, and also the occasional gasping for breath. Did I mention I was wearing jean cut-offs, tank top, and slip-on shoes with no socks?

    Exarch: Not as bad as I thought it would be, but also not fun.

  4. How strange, I read this post and my life changed before my very eyes…

    Looking forward to hearing the interview!

  5. "I’ve chosen an interview subject for Round Three of Public Radio Talent Quest!"

    John Lennon via séance. We know he's been looking to get back into the media since the last one a while back.

  6. Mmmm jean cut-offs, tank top, and slip-on shoes with no socks and I have to live in Chicago.;) That's it there is no god

  7. Ok, true. I should have known better. Clearly, she knew exactly what she was doing, and it was all an evil ploy to get everybody to picture her all hot and sweaty in cut-off jeans and a tank top.

    Because Rebecca is a psychic vampire, and she feeds off attention!
