It’s Shiny And New, But Is It Squee Inducing?

So early last week my new office computer finally arrived.  I know, I’m excited about it too. And of course, I know that it will come as no surprise that I decided to purchase a brand new shiny Apple. For this purchase, I opted for an Apple 27″ iMac.  And because I’m a real-estate whore, I…

I Am The Goo That Remains After Left And Right Brains Collide

I find myself sitting at La Guardia airport waiting to board my plane home.  This is the worst part of vacation; waiting to go home.  Would that I could travel all the time.  Sigh. I had mentioned in previous posts (see I Ate New York, and I Ate New York, Again) that I was going…

List-O-Nerdidays: The Downloadable Calend-Nerd

So given the interest1 in the List-o-Nerdidays that I compiled and published on February 20, 2011, I’ve decided that something more needed to be done. “Wait, what list?”, you ask.  Only the list of holidays for nerds; the list which consists of various non-religious, non politically motived days that have been set aside by the academic…

Whiteboard Madness

I was scanning through my photos yesterday, distracting myself from some less-than-awesome things that have been happening around me since I got back from my epic adventure with Rick, and I stumbled on a bunch of math-y type pictures that I hadn’t seen in quite some time.  Most of the pictures were taken over the…

Your One Stop Shop For Y-Shaped Scars, Stupid Burning, And Sad Babies

As stated in my previous post, I am relatively new to this world-o-wonder that is WordPress blogging. Thankfully, the learning curve has been easy to traverse, so I’m feeling very comfortable with all that it has to offer. And I continue to learn, which is keeping it all very entertaining and exciting for me. Of…

Alternate title for this entry: “I Heart Function You Too” (G. Darlington, 2011) Happy Valentine’s Day dear readers. For those of you that celebrate this day, I hope you get to celebrate with someone you love – be that a spouse, partner, girlfriend, boyfriend, golf club, barcalounger, rocket powered massager, hand-held calculator, or your very…

The Fancy-Pants’ing Of Number-Stuffs

Speaking of nerdery, have you tried out Daytum1 yet?  It’s another iPhone app that I use on a daily basis (website here).  The app allows one to collect data.  Any data.  Clearly this was an app built for me.  I stumbled on this late last year and decided that it would be perfect for tracking the time…

Dear Sleep, You Had Me At Zzzzzzzzzzzz

If science has taught us but one thing, it is that repetition is key to the process of learning about the world around us.  With that thought now sitting at the fore of your mind, let me begin this post with the following statement: I am a huge nerd.  I am a huge nerd. I…

The Radius Of Stupidity

So I’ve noticed that my scar, in a manner that I can only describe as what Harry Potter must experience, tends to tingle when I’m surrounded by stupid people. True story. Okay, maybe that’s a lie, but how cool would that be? Anyway, I imagine that it should tingle/burn/hurt whenever I’m surrounded by stupid people. I…
