In the field today.

Don't know when I'll get back, and tonight I leave for the weekend. This may have to hold you until Monday.

You're never going to find a boyfriend with that attitude. You can't meet anyone if you're out of town every weekend.

You will of course be covered on MarginalRevolution tomorrow, so don't fall too far behind on your blog reading.

I will?! What caught your attention this time? I haven't written anything especially pithy recently.

Guess I'll find out Monday. Good thing I consider myself patient.

when "the music stops" I hope you write about it...I don't think I can take reading any more about soil and equations!

FYI: To keep you busy until you have that spit roasted experience:

U of Cers can go beyond the life of the mind, thanks to the second release of student-run sex magazine Vita Excolatur. Exploring the human body, the 25-page, glossy black-and-white publication features a photo essay on the University’s men’s Frisbee team , with full frontal nudity.

Love the photos of the flood control system. Water and concrete, appeals to me because I'm Dutch and an engineer.

I don't think I've ever seen this explained before. What exactly is your affiliation with Tyler from Marginal Revolution? I mean, it didn't sound like you went to the school where he teaches, so how exactly did he end up being your promoter?

That's not a flood control system -- That's the L.A. river. I spent a couple hours looking at every picture the first time I found that site.

I don't know why Tyler became my pimp. He liked a comment I left and checked out my blog, and has been extraordinarily generous to me ever since. If he sends me a husband, I hope we'll have Tyler officiate.

Ha, for some reason I expected the LA River to hold a little more water ;o) Guess the normal flow is catched in various basins and used for irrigation and general water supply.

Daran,

Nope, a lot of smaller rivers in the Southwest are seasonal. They dry in the summer, to little or no surface flow. In the winter you get high flows and flashy floods. There's a lot of Dry Creeks and Arroyo Secos around here.

The water you see in those pictures is more likely to be run-off from landscape irrigation than natural flow.

I'm a big advocate of doing favors (I hope they are favors!) for random but not totally randomly selected people. I don't know Megan at all.

More selfishly, MarginalRevolution readers will get bored with just me and Alex, and they need occasional female company. Especially if she is a great writer and forceful thinker. And single.
