Because 42.3 Kilometers Would Be Crazy: One More Thing

I just posted a summary of my marathon (here), and almost forgot something of such importance, it would be criminal for me not to mention it. What is so important that it requires another post? you ask. Well, I’m not the only crazy person that decided to run an official race this weekend. And with…

Because 42.3 Kilometers Would Be Crazy

The title of this post is courtesy of some random sign that I saw as I ran the Ottawa Marathon on Sunday (which, by now I’m sure you know is 42.2 km). To be honest, I really wish I had the time to pull out my camera while I was running to take photos. I…

If This Is Posted, I Probably Didn’t Die

Today was the big day. And by big, I mean epic. Today was the Ottawa Marathon – my first ever marathon. And it was AWESOME! I had so much fun, even despite the aches and pains that came with running 42.2km (that’s 26.2 miles to my non-metric readers). Since I’m a little bit tired at…

Carbo-Loading With Cinnamon Buns

Tomorrow is the big day. Race day. My first ever official marathon. I am a mix of emotions. Nervous, stoked, excited, nauseous, anxious, happy, gassy. Wait, no, not the last one. Anyway, today is carbo-loading day. That is, today is the day that Mark and I are supposed to be consuming lots of carbs (good carbs…

Nerd Caucus: The Re-Nerdening.

So it has been a while since the nerds got together for a night of, well, being nerds. In fact, the last time I reported on such an event (known to those in the know as Nerd Caucus) was back in the days of yore when we gathered to celebrate the awesomeness of Pi Day,…

An Orgy Of Nerdiness

So how did you celebrate the epicness that was yesterday? You know, the combination of all things awesome known as Towel Day, National Plank Day, National Wine Day (which I was only alerted to later in the day – thankfully not so late as to prevent me from partaking in the appropriate celebrations), and last,…

This Is Your Brain. This Is Your Brain On Infinity. Any Questions?

Happy Geek/Nerd Pride Day. Happy World Planking Day. Oh ya, and Happy Towel Day. So much to celebrate, so little time. Anyway, as I mentioned in yesterday’s post (here), today is a triple threat of nerdiday goodness. To celebrate, I present to you the following brain-bending, get your nerd on, mathematical thinkable. By this point,…

May 25: A Triple Threat

Clearly the universe was looking out for me today. I meant to post about this earlier but then forgot. And it’s a good thing I didn’t, because if I did I would have failed you dear readers. How is that possible? You ask. Well, I was about to post a reminder that tomorrow is Geek…

Meet Lulu The Stress Cow

Hey folks. Given that yesterday I had fully expected to be raptured in the great rapturing of 2011, I hadn’t really planned any major post for today. Anyway, I did find something the other day that I thought was so epic, I felt that it needed to be shared. What is this thing of awesomeness…

Happy Rapture Day

So if you are reading this, it probably means that the Rapture hasn’t happened. Yet. Or maybe it is happening, but you aren’t one of the chosen few. If that is the case, I have to say that I’m flattered. Instead of being all raptured up and stuff, you have opted to read my blog….

Introducing The Ass Prof Blog

So it’s official folks.  Today I launch my newest blog.  Say what? That’s correct; I’ve started yet another blog.  But it’s not going to be quite the same as Consumed By Wanderlust.  It will still be epic and awesome and full of the nerdy goodness that you’ve come to expect here, but it will be…

10000 Strong And Growing

So today marks a pretty big event for Consumed By Wanderlust. Today marks the day when this blog reached 10,000 page views. That’s awesome. Clearly I have only you, the readers to blame thank for pushing me to this milestone. Granted, I have no idea whether or not 10,000 views of this blog in 112 days…

The World Is A Beautiful, Astonishing, Wondrous Place

The title of this blog comes from the final blog post of a man whom I’ve never met, but whose blog I had been following after being introduced to it by my friend Dr. Beth.  And when I write final blog post, I mean just that; it comes from a post that was published posthumously.  Specifically,…
