You’re Fired!….Guv’nor.

Cousin Ajay sends us this. Is funny:

Cousin Ajay also sends us this, with the comment that he fears it might turn kids retarded:

Cousin Ajay is on a roll. (It’s a figure of speech; he’s not actually riding bread.) He also sends us Helen Keller’s twitter feed. Go look.

Special Ed sends us Captain Kirk’s Best and Worst Moments. (Yes, it’s the real Kirk, not this new poser.) The list is missing the bit where Kirk has nasty Captain sex with the hyperfast accelerated woman who can kill him with a scratch, yet somehow manages to avoid any and all abrasions. That’s skill.

Special thanks to Dr Qais Ghanem for hosting myself and Dr Robert Huish on Dr Ghanem’s radio show last Friday. Hopefully the MP3 of the interview will be posted very soon.

A further thanks to the organizers of the CSEB student conference this weekend for inviting me to be a judge in theit epidemiology poster competition. Ironically, this weekend I also judged a literary contest with co-judge Shanthi Sekaran. Shanthi’s new book is getting a lot of attention; I can’t wait to read it.

What am I doing now? Procrastinating. How? By watching the UK version of The Apprentice. Man, I love this show! Well, I love most things British. It’s so delicious watching Brits argue. Their turns of phrases sound so cute and alien to me that it’s impossible for me to get too emotional about it, only highly entertained. And I love that their equivalent of Donald Trump, Sir Alan Sugar, is an enormous prick who doesn’t take shit from anyone, and whose firing decisions appear to be both consistent and justified! What a change!

Okay, back to TV…
