I did a poll a while ago and discovered that many of my Twitter followers don’t know Squishy Cow, or haven’t seen my Lego videos.

Remember Squishy Cow, she of Open Lab 2010 fame? Squishy Cow has been slowly getting used to living in England. She has even made a new friend!

Yes we can…?

By | 13 Comments

What a horrible selfish thing to break a blog break for, but I wanted to let you know, (in a winking, insinuating manner) that two of my blog posts are up for voting at the 3quarksdaily science blog awards this week. There are a gazillion blog posts (give or take) but only the top 20 of the popular vote will…

Random photos

By | 5 Comments

I’m so backlogged with photos and writing and, well, everything. I recently downloaded a chunk of photos from my cell phone . Completely random photos, taken over the span of about 18 months . A shocking number of them were science-related. Are you ready for a huge random photo dump?

I decided to collect some of my personal favourite blog posts on this blog and put the list in my profile, but it’s probably easier to put them all in a blog post.

ScienceOnline09 – Day 1

I just started a new job, and also just found the source(s) of a long lingering clothes moth infestation in my apartment. As a result, I had been cleaning and washing every single night and…
