What I Did During the Heat Wave

Polish1.jpg– Got a pedicure (pictured).
– Went through all the copy edits for my book. (Apparently I don’t know when to use the word “that” and when to use “which.”)
– Made a few phone calls to California law enforcement about the Bruce Kremen case. (Waiting to hear back.)
– Also tried to follow up on a New Jersey murder. (Freaking amazing that I tried to stay far away from murder and my book ends up having murders in it. Not amazing in retrospect, given the subject, but it didn’t occur to me at the time.)
– Wrote the acknowledgments for my book. (No-win. I’m sure to have left out someone I shouldn’t have.)
– Emailed a few people about physicist Hugh Everett’s many worlds theory. (Wish I had studied science in school.)
– Finished my legal issues to-do list. (Phone call meeting today.)
– Ordered a Father’s Day gift online. (And second guessed myself immediately after.)
– A bunch of reading. In fact, I will post soon about what I’m reading. It will be a post about science. But I was reading from The Elegant Universe, and The Canon (a book about science for people who know nothing about science, a nice overview, thank you Natalie Angier).
