Here’s what I’ve been up to lately!

My friends and I were on the last page of Astronomy magazine on Cosmic Grid, fortunately in the “hot/predictable” quadrant. (I thought about the B-sharps. ‘Are we hot?’ ‘We are not.’) The best part was that the columnist was excited that we blogged about his column. :-)

Then we had a goodbye lunch for a co-worker, Alex at our favorite Indian place:

A whole bunch of us met up for darthed‘s birthday. It was fun, because our big group combined lots of DragonCon and work friends.

We had a crazy storm earlier that day with lots of lightning:

Also awesome is that John and Beth were able to drive down from NYC for the festivities! Beth made a giant cupcake for Ed. It was banana cake with peanut butter icing. That sounds strange, but it was really really good. It had Reece’s Pieces on top too!
