a few days ago, I wrote that perhaps I should become a meteorologist. I meant psychic.

why? Because I will be proven right in predicting that the productivity of women aged 40-65 will drop precipitously this afternoon between 3 and 4 pm. You know, the ones who were in college and grad school, or home with small children in 1981 or so.

why?


Rick Springfield is returning to General hospital this afternoon. Remember, the soap had an audience of about 11 million during the years that Dr Noah Drake reigned. They (we've?) all grown up now, but I would bet that many will be curious enough to tune in, or TiVo, just to see how he looks.

And I'm not the only one thinking along these lines---the New York Times is, too.

Edited to say: i will not be among those flicking on the TV this afternoon. I never bothered to hook up the one in my office. I'm sure one of my old palies will come out of the woodwork to tell all.

Yeck. I hated him. Remember when Jeff Daniels was on that show?

to be honest, the only time i watched was when i was in grad school. We watched the build up to the big luke and laura wedding, and then made the prof let us watch the wedding. Which meant we had to stay up all night to get our stories done for the next morning. For some reason, we thought it was worth it.
