My top model doll has a crush on author Jonah Lehrer!

 

As a fan of neuroscience in general, which coincidentally is a hot topic in the bookstores (along with evolution), I do enjoy a good read on the topic.  The above review is of both of Jonah Lehrer's fabulous books, Proust was a Neuroscientist and How We Decide, which I happened to listen to on audio. He also has a fabulous blog called The Frontal Cortex if you are curious.He is editor of SEED magazine,which I also happen to love, love, love!

FYI, I am currently listening to Krakatoa by Simon Winchester on audio as a reminder of what I had read back about five or six years ago. It is pretty much the seminal book about geography out there, at least in popular book format

Back to the video, if you can't quite see it well, I pasted a pic of Jonah onto Malibu Ken to be the object of my doll's affections. She's playing her diva self and making shoe comments--And Jonah is being such a good sport about it all!

I have maybe seen four episodes of America's Next Top Model, and those were while I was getting a pedicure or some such thing, not on purpose. Intriguing.  At least people can see some of the ridiculous things they put models through. And don't I know it: bikinis in ice plants, ski wear in 90 degree heat at major shipping ports are just a couple of the more extreme things I endured personally. I guess the nice way to put it is "creative".

NOVAScience NOW is a very good program and most certainly would be my choice over ANTM.

I have a lot going on, not one bit of it lucrative, so I've been a bit neglectful of my website.  I promise to get back into the swing of things shortly, which will include the book list from my students from this spring semester.

Until next time,

Kindly, Joanne
