Fun fact for the day: Hey, you know how Sarah Palin likes to talk about how Alaska is so close to Russia? Well, I did the math, and it looks like the Palin homestead in Wasilla is about the same distance from the Bering Strait as I am in Madison from my parents' house in Vero Beach, Florida! *waves* Hi Mom! I can see your foreign policy qualifications from here!

And to go from Palin's office in Juneau to the Bering Strait? Why, that's close to 2000 miles -- just a short little jaunt like the one I take every afternoon to visit my sister in Los Angeles!

When I told my geographically-challenged friend Ryan I was moving to Wisconsin, he kinda squinted and said, "That's near Canada, right?" Well, sorta, Ryan -- but apparently that proximity is a better asset for my career prospects than my masters degree. Look out, Ban Ki Moon! I've got a geographically-stacked resume and some cute spectacles, and I'm coming for your job!
