What Statisticians Do After Work

Me with St. MadnessIt is the International Year of Statistics so all statisticians are obligated to tell you why statistics are so rocking awesome. Here is my two cents worth  – I’m not a morning person. No, you have NO idea. I feel bad about it sometimes when I am having my lunch break at 10:30 pm, but that’s just the way I am. As soon as I could work it out  – which was about two years into my career – I never worked an 8-5 job again. I’ve been up before 8 a.m. exactly once in the past six months – to go to a workshop on using games to teach statistics. I normally roll out of bed somewhere around the crack of noon and then work for the next 14 hours straight because that is how I like my life.

So, today, since Hart Fisher, host of American Horrors, invited me to their Christmas party in North Hollywood, it was perfect timing. I knocked off work a little early, knocked off a couple of beers around midnight and then armbarred a zombie while the devil took my picture.

Devil's business card

See, you thought I was kidding about the devil but I got his business card as proof.

There you have it then, young people, yet another reason to become a statistician – you can arrange your hours to accommodate your biological clock, which, in my case, seems to be set on Vampire Time.

You can listen to the band, St. Madness, here. I thought they were quite good.
