Busy weekend, what with a prospective student in town to visit the department, plus attempting to do a little work. Prospective weekend is always a little hectic: Parties, hikes in the desert, orientation-type stuff. But it's a pretty good time, usually. At the very least, it means a full-on happy hour on the department's tab, and if things work out as they did this year, it also means meeting plenty of really good people whom I hope come to join us in Tucson next fall.

Otherwise, school is always in the back of my mind. I'm working today on summer's Sociology of Medicine syllabus.
