So not much to report on today, some remainders if you will.  

  • 10% of the Ten Angry Men has a new blog about his experience as a Boston kid living in the United Arab Emirates for work.  It's worth a read.  Good stuff.  
  • Had the new Prime Rib Ranchero from Quizno's yesterday.  I think it was Michael Clark Duncan's sweet voice that inspired me.  Verdict: While I can't find a photo online, its bursting with meat in the pictures.  In reality, it looked like Nell Carter was inside the toasting oven sitting on it.  Pass.  Especially for $6 for a small.  
  • I was teaching class today, which means I had to reschedule the Yellow Fever Vaccine that I'm supposed to be getting now that Urban Yellow Fever has been identified in Asuncion, Paraguay.  I'm guessing that Children's Hospital won't want my blood when I get back so I should give 3 pints next time I go.  I was told by the two guys from my agency who did get the injection that the needle is big and they give it in your ass.  I call bullshit, but I'll let you know in April when I get it.  
And finally, for those of you who know my former career in New York City, I loooooved this article.  Jack Maple is rolling in his grave.  You can't make this stuff up.  Seriously.

Thanks for the shoutout, man. I'm over here for 2 years. At least that's what the contract says.

PS - As much as I'd be honored to be considered one of them, sadly I am not a member of 10 angry men.

Hi Graham! I got my Yellow Fever shot in the *arm*, so rest easy. It did make me feel funny and as it traveled through my body I thought, "So this is what it's like to do IV drugs." But it went away quickly and just made my arm sore for a day. Leslie (from Vassar)

Leslie! Thanks, and I know you without the Vassar reference. I'll take your advice on all things third world. I wrote you a message on facebook as I'm not sure how you found this blog or if you'll make the same mistake and come back.
