If you somehow missed the American Economic Association meeting in Atlanta over New Year’s weekend, then you missed out on a rare live appearance by everybody’s favorite financial country crooner, Merle Hazard. It was a regular tent revival down there!
And a HUGE high-five to knitter/economic spouse Ellen who apparently witnessed this gig herself–the Venn diagram of economist spouses/Merle Hazard aficionadoes/MDK readers likely puts Ellen in a rare, rare spot.
PS I promise not to mention this every single day, but I got 7.5 hours of sleep last night. It took a Desert Storm level of logistical focus to get in bed in time. And Hubbo incredibly and easily managed to trick me into looking at his laptop IN BED, EVEN AFTER I SWORE NOT TO HAVE A COMPUTER IN THE BED. (I am fascinated by everybody’s comments yesterday–sleep is such a TOPIC. I keep thinking about Arianna Huffington’s suggestion that sleep can be some kind of feminist weapon of world domination. I AM WOMAN: HEAR ME SNOOZE!)
