Such an incredible spokesperson for basic decency and kindness, as well as, I understand, a strong organizer & acti… -- @MetaGrrrl

I've made a few edits above to bring the auto-imported tweets closer to my vision for their appearance here, but, there's still so much to do to bring in a quoted tweet and the images. Really, it seems like more work to clean them up than to re-engineer the whole website to have a smart import. And THAT's saying something.

Not my strong suit 2012

Trying to quell the pre-shopping horrors. Nexus of fear: dressy/formal, hot weather, & meeting strangers in non-professional role.

Trauma held at bay by super shopper Joe. Dress, skirt, 2 shrugs acquired. Now food before shoes & shells & his suit. #shopping

Hit the shopping wall, but after easily twice the usual number of try-ons. Shoes acquired & a probably workable top. Phew.

Gentle, poppy versions of songs to which goths used to dance darkly play in Jos. A. Bank as Joe buys a suit. #death #bleakness #sale!

The big announcement 2012

OH: "We can just have physicists on in the background…"

Tuesday does Saturday right: Our big screen shows physicists filing in slowly to take seats for the big Higgs-Boson announcement #nerds #yes

OMG. Physicists are cute. #higgsboson

Default for male physicists seems to be blue shirts, for females red. Does this mean female physicists are moving faster away from now?

Physicists. Sooooo cute and funny. #higgsboson #nerdsRgreat

Quickly becoming incomprehensible to me, but STILL CUTE! #higgsboson

Loving the messy, non-definitiveness of science. Slow growth of understanding & growth of subsequent questions. Thank you, scientists!

It's good to have an eloquent ally 2012

"you're afraid of that woman's voice & you don't think you can beat her intellectually without using a cheat code"

More background and commentary from Daniel Nye Griffiths at Forbes.


"I don’t know who these hateful people are, but they are not the gamers I know. They are not the men I know."


Let's keep focused on having the "what you did" argument with those who leave hateful comments, not the "what you are" argument.

Blog (noun) A weblog or similar brief journal usually containing links and commentary thereon. Term coined by Peter Merholz.

Visit Typepad or Blogger to start your own. (I began with hand coding, then switched to Blogger when it first became available, then to Movable Type when I wanted more control over my weblog and to have it hosted at a place of my choosing (Hurricane Electric). Since 06/2003 I've used Typepad, a hosted service built by the same folks who made Movable Type, which I love because I don't have to maintain the underlying system).
