In other sleeping news, I woke up around 3:30 today and couldn't get back to sleep, so I dicked around on the computer a bit, then got ready for work. I got to the office at 7. I've been productive, but I fear that I will crash in the afternoon. I think this might have happened because I slept in yesterday because I had the day off and a mild hangover.
I think the latest David Brooks essay is fluff BS.
I like these two responses to that stupid "Chinese Mother" article, both call out the narcissism of the author: http://skepticalob.blogspot.com/2011/01/battle-hymn-of-koala-mother.html http://thelastpsychiatrist.com/2011/01/why_chinese_mothers_are_not_su.html Though I've heard elsewhere the article basically strung together the most controversial parts of the book, making it miss the narrative arc of the whole which paints a more sympathetic picture of the mother. Whatevs.
My textbook had better arrive today, otherwise I'll have to get creative in figuring out how to do my homework. There are 4 problems (out of 10) I need from the book. Okay, I found a preview that contains 2 of the 4 problems I need. That means I have a good start. 8/10 isn't bad.
I need to finish off this presentation. Or whatever. I'll go to lunch and then do it.
