The researchers from the University of Washington are coming back today. I thought they were coming at 9:30 but I just checked and they won't be here til 10. Somehow that extra 30 minutes feels like way more and a relief. I am looking forward to their visit but I want to get dressed first.

They are designers and are working on data collection - how we collect and use data mostly in the home. Initially they came and talked to me for a long time about how I collect and use data whether it's via Google or Alexa or handwritten jots. Then they gave me things to think about and report back. They came a second time with more questions and a set of exercises about data collection and retrieval. Today I think they are coming with some kind of gizmo. And I do love gizmos.

One is a doctor and the other is one of her students/research assistants. They are both in their early 30's or younger, I would guess, and perfectly delightful. It's been really fun and interesting so far and I'm looking forward to seeing them.

I did remember to turn on the heater so I don't freeze them out.

I honestly do not care whether we have daylight saving time all year or not. I would prefer that we not switch back and forth but only so I don't have to listen to the bitching about it. But, really I don't care. Washington is one of those states seriously considering putting an end to the switching but I think picking a side is going to trip them up. Most everyone is fine with not switching, not everyone is on team DST. I'm pretty much on team Whatever.

While everyone else in the world is all Game of Thrones this week, I'm all Martin Clunes. He has a new series out today on Acorn - Manhunt. I'm looking forward to seeing it. I notice a lot of regular TV shows are already airing season finales. That used to happen in May... guess they are doing a big Spring Forward. It's fine, really. Soon I'll be stuck watching baseball every day and have precious little time for episodic TV of any kind.

Now it's time to get crackin' or at least get dressed.
