One of a few things I can smell and taste is my coffee – Millstone Chocolate Velvet. I’m grateful I can smell and taste anything but coffee is essential in my day. I actually want a cup right now but it’s almost midnight so it’s probably not a wise choice.
I made another dinner which I couldn’t taste. I need to stop eating but I’m still deluded that there’s one food that will bring back the smell and flavors I miss. I’m hard headed so I continue on down this path.
In other news, I sent out a message to the entire University Campus today sharing the news that the Library will start a new survey soon. I got a few responses from people who recognized my Navajo last name. I’m actually quite excited to start this survey next week on Library Services. I also want to start a series to teach basic statistics – what are the important elements when looking at research (numbers, approach, methodology and most importantly, in plain English, what story is the data telling). I’m excited about this but I need to flesh this out a bit more. Imagine a wiki or blog that explains statistics in a language anyone can understand. That is truly exciting. On that note, I need to wind down for the day because I have much to do tomorrow.
