I am a nerd

No, really. I didn't realise how much of a nerd until the last few months. The fact that I now have a favourite statistician/public health expert was the give-away. Yesterday I had super-nerdy moment when I opened my google reader and discovered that the new Humanitarian Exchange Magazine is out. Humanitarian Exchange is an industry magazine for humanitarian workers full of long, scholarly articles about such scintillating things as whether it is irresponsible for major NGOs to pull out of coordination mechanisms and (in this edition) the implications for aid workers of global security company codes of conduct. Okay, okay, I realise it's not fascinating to everyone but I honestly did a little happy-dance :)

Of course, it is also a terrible distraction from job-hunting. Such a pain to have to force myself to put aside the things I really want to read and do horrible job-searching things! *sulk*
