Hubble hardware!

Remember I posted about getting to touch the handrail that Mike Massimino had to yank off the Hubble? Justin C. was kind enough to show Sara and I the Hubble hardware again, since she hadn’t seen it, and I wanted pictures! So this is the handrail. This video shows how it came off Hubble! You can see where the screw … Continue Reading →

iPhone picture post (ballet, Mt. Goddard, Willow)

Bryan’s family had some extra ballet tickets, so I was able to go along to see Sparticus. The night we went, the up and coming dancer Ivan Vasiliev was performing. He was really amazing! Oh yeah, and his dancing was really good too! Anyway, I had a lot of fun! A few pics of DC from the drive in… The … Continue Reading →

Mount Goddard

The 2000 tons of snow removed at Goddard had to go somewhere – it got dumped into a mountain behind B28. It’s really impressive! There’s a big drop from here! Being the nerds we are, we dropped a snowball and timed it. It took 2 full seconds! [ETA: And because I’m a big nerd, I calculated that the drop was … Continue Reading →

snOMG day 3

We escaped to the supemarket today. It was hard to get out of the driveway because the neighbor across the street hadn’t shoveled yet, and the snow projects so far intonje street that it’s now one-lane. As soon as we manouvered out, a car turned onto the street forcing us to back back into our driveway. We made it out … Continue Reading →

SnOMG, Snowpocalypse 2010

We shoveled last night at 9pm, but it was like we hadn’t done anything today. Doug shoveled some early and then we did the whole driveway and cleared both cars at 11:30 or so. I measured 25″ then, but it’s been steadily snowing since then, so maybe another few inches.

Doug and I went to see ABT do Romeo & Juliet at the Kennedy Centre at the end of January. It was awesome and somehow Row G ended up being front row! The pit orchestra was right in front of us! It was really awesome, and Juliet Kent was amazing! Here are some costumes from R&J that were on display … Continue Reading →

iPhone picture post, part 3

We had a poster party at work! We posed a few pics with our friends looking interested in our poster. This evening was really pretty. The sun was setting behind me and the sky was all orange and yellow. In front of me, the moon was coming up and the sky was purple and blue. This does it no justice. … Continue Reading →
