Today’s $50 word: Electronystagmography. I get to have this test done today. I’ve been having vertigo problems off and on since the day after Thanksgiving. For a skater (or anyone, really), this is not good. So the electronystagmography (I cut-and-pasted that — who wants to type a word that long?) will, with luck, help pinpoint the cause of the vertigo.
A while ago I posted about the TV series The 1900 House (which ended here in the US on July 4). I just found the original British web site for the show.
Speaking of reality TV, the new series Big Brother premiered last night. In this one, 10 people live in a house with no contact with the outside world, filmed 24 hours a day. I missed the first episode but I did peek at the website, which features live video feeds. At 3 am, everyone appears to be asleep. Not too thrilling. But I can tell you that at least one resident of the Big Brother house snores like a beater car with no muffler.
