10 February 2013 - Marquesan Now!
Hey all, I recently arrived in French Polynesia to spend a year conducting doctoral fieldwork in anthropology. I would love to keep in touch, but will be posting to my other blog more regularly than this one. Please check out Marquesan Now for daily Marquesan words, photos and updates! Thanks…
23 March 2011 - Going Rugged in the Green Mountain State
Damien and I have on the whole been loving our time in Vermont. Great state, great people, breath-taking scenery. A general and refreshing absence of strip malls, traffic, chain restaurants and grey cityscapes. A long, cold winter…but all the winter sports and activities you can think of to help it fly by. In fact, our biggest […]
16 March 2011 - Change
Wow. It’s been over a year since I last posted a regular blog post! That’s embarrassing. In a way it’s a good thing—just goes to show how much down time I’ve had, in front of the computer—but it still makes me feel guilty. Sigh. Anyhow, on to brighter things: there have been some BIG changes […]
22 October 2009 - The Swine!
Maybe it’s because I come from a family of doctors and never got taken to the doctor’s office for being sick when I was little, but I have a very high degree of skepticism regarding the latest big scare: Swine Flu, or, if you prefer the more glamourous and fantastical science-fiction name, Novel H1N1.

09 June 2009 - Emonsterz!

And really makes me want to buy more (ah, what a good consumer…). They come in all sizes and shapes, including pillow-sized, and […]
28 May 2009 - Good European Sense
I love the United States and regularly thank heaven I was born here–the ever-self-scrutinizing land of the free, home of the brave. But in some respects, I believe the Europeans may still have us beat. Vacation time, the seriousness with which they take their meals, their love and eternal use of bikes, and that good ol’ appreciation […]
02 May 2009 - A whole week without email?
As I mentioned earlier this week, I spent the past five work days at a training, almost entirely without internet or computer access. Only on a select few days did I even find the energy to turn on my computer, upon arriving home–never mind doing something productive–and on most days, making a quick dinner and getting […]
23 April 2009 - Cubed
Why is it that getting work done on a Friday is so difficult? It most certainly isn’t the fact that it’s Friday–I work only every other Friday, which means that every other week my last work day is a Thursday. And believe me, those are just as bad! Take today, for example…never mind. But I’m quite […]
