Apparently my weekly updates are now… monthly. Or of some periodicity that is too long for this to be considered a consistent blog. Or something. But it’s my website and I’ll post if I want to, right?
Interesting Things on the Internet
Another reason why Elyse “El Mofo” is my hero.
Research for complementary and alternative medicine? Survey says… doesn’t work. Move on. (Major love to the DC-area skeptics who have been working hard on this project.)
Metallic hydrogen? It’s thought to make up the bulk of the volume of the gas giant planets, like Jupiter, but making it on Earth isn’t so easy.
Pamela Gay blogs about the state of science education to come.
Help Astronomers Without Borders with an astronomy-related Apple Store purchase.
Edmund Scientific responds to the criticism of their boys’ and girls’ science kits.
You can’t stop the bellydancers. Raq on, ladies.
I Just Want to Go on a Walk. Fascinating and moving read for women, and men who know women. So, everyone.
Maria subjects herself to another Twilight movie, just for us. Also, the Bloggess wears a wolf to see the movie. That’s right. A WOLF. On her HEAD. I like to think that she and I are internet soul mates, connected in some cosmic way by our Ambien-induced hallucinations.
I can always count on my boyfriend to post awesome videos of Shatner singing.
Do I even need to mention that Rick Perry is a moron? I’m not even going to link to that stupid, stupid video. But I will encourage you to come to the highly irreverent Debate-O-Rama live-blog by the Death Panel on Thursday night.
I really should be saving up words for my thesis. I’m trying to finish it. I know, I know. You’re saying, “But haven’t you been working on that this, like, forever?” Yeah, it feels like it sometimes, but now I’m actually putting WORDS to PAPER. Or text to LaTeX. Yes, thesis.tex actually exists. A large-ish chunk of it is under (hopefully) final revisions to be submitted to a journal, and the rest is finally pouring forth in a torrent of science-y sounding text. The whole thing is going to be done and defended within the next few months because… well… I probably can’t tell you that yet.
But I’m currently stuck for words, so I thought that a blog post might help shake loose the words from the language center of my brain. I’ll make up for not posting here so much by posting my thesis when it’s done. Fair? I’m sure it’ll make good bedtime reading material. But most importantly, it needs to be done.
Here’s “ambien turtle” again, just for kicks…
