I'm a Nerd
I've been told that the hurricane won't hit Tassee, but I know we'll get a good bit of rain. I certainly would never revel in others' misery, but I find hurricane season and its connection with crime rates fascinating. For example, gas was $2.25/gallon on Wednesday. Today, it's $2.31/gallon--an increase of 6 cents!! Let the price gauging begin. Another grad. student and I hope to look at last year's crime stats (in general) and this year's and hopefully establish an association.

I've spent my entire day in front of the computer. Always a late bloomer, I've finally created a myspace account and I can't pull myself away from it. All of a sudden I need constant validation. "why hasn't (insert name here) responded to my invite?"

I have to break away. MCmtL now I understand your frustration with my delinquency in affirming your friendship on friendster. Are you on myspace? I must build my army!

My god, somebody help me...

I've changed the link on the side by to reflect suzanna sugar's triumphant move from fotolog to flickr. Her stuff, as I've noted in the past, is beautiful, so go to flickr and check it out.

As for me, I'm combining efforts and also saying so long to fotolog. We've been together for years, but its time to call it quits. blogger, you're all the woman I need.

Needle in the Camel's Stye
Because of my proclivity towards these pesky eye infections and the frequency at which I get them, I decided to do a little research on trusty WebMD:
Stye (or external hordeolum): A stye is an infection in the tiny oil glands along the edge of the eyelid that surround the base of an eyelash. It begins as a red, tender bump, and usually comes to a head in about 3 days. The stye then breaks open and drains and heals in about a week

But found that what I most likely have is a combination of the above and this guy:
Internal hordeolum: An internal hordeolum, like a stye, is an infection. However, it infects the oil glands deeper inside the eyelid. Hordeola are usually larger and last longer than styes.

None of the articles I read gave me insight (hardy har har) as to why I keep getting them. I'm going to self diagnose and say stress and too much drinking/ not enough sleep. That's always a safe bet.
Med school be damned!

If I could I'd lock myself in a theatre and watch Batman Begins ad infinitum. It's easily my favorite movie of the year thus far. Crash was at the top; War of the Worlds was very entertaining, but Batman is simply superior.

As I was walking in my neighborhood, a 4 or 5 yr. old kid rides by in his three-wheeled low rider bike (I don't know how else to explain) and proclaims to me, "Now, this is a pimp bike."
