Does This Mean I’m Undead?

My nerdery has been well established by this point in time. As such, I’m not even going to explain why I have the following app, because it should be fairly obvious; I like numbers, I like data, ’nuff said. Anyway, the app in question – none other than Heart Fitness. What does Heart Fitness do? It…

Merry Stats-mas Everyone!

Yesterday I received an unexpected email from my friend Michael (who just so happens to be a fellow Statistics nerd). Anyway, it seems that in his recent move he came across a box of statistical textbooks that he no longer needed. He was curious as to whether I’d be able to give them a good…

Who Knew Corporate Shilling Could Taste So Good

Okay, so I realize that this is the third time I’ve written about So Delicious products, but I really can’t help myself. I think it’s just that I’m so excited to actually eat a product that is ice-cream like, except that it lacks the evil that is dairy (okay, evil to me), and it’s freaking…

(Well, apart from the obvious answers of vegans, vegetarians, the pork-allergic – is that a thing? – or those that refrain from pork consumption due to…

Happy 2011.5

As of noon today, half of the year has passed. That’s right folks – we’re on the downhill side of 2011. Anyway, I figured that this would be a good time to reflect on my goals. Specifically, I wanted to figure out how I was doing in terms of the athletic goals I had set…

This Time I Didn’t Fall Down

Mark and I headed out to the Hydro Cut again today, and you’ll be happy to know that this time I didn’t wipe out. There were some moments that could have ended in disaster – you know, like when trees jump out in front of me (I swear those things can move) – but thankfully…
