Guest blog update!

Guest blog!

I was fortunate to have the opportunity to be a guest blogger on Norway Traveller! I’ve followed David’s original “Life in Norway” blog for a while now, and he recently spun off travel-oriented posts into a new blog. My blogs (there will be two) are about touring Finnmark County, in northern Norway, with my friends’ rock band. In the first, … Continue Reading →


What I’ve Been Up To, June, part 2

So Alex decided he was going to prop his (many) monitors up on books. This is one of his schemes. He has had many schemes, also including a standing desk, and the weird keyboard you might notice in this picture. So Joe (Classic) and I decided we were obligated to secretly add a book a day to the pile to … Continue Reading →


What I’ve Been Up To – June, part 1

Ok, June! Diane and her daughter came to visit work, and though I neglected to get a group photo, we had a very nice time! We got to tour the new Satellite Servicing facility, which is super cool. They are working on a mission to robotically refuel Landsat -7: They are also working on a mission that would be proof … Continue Reading →


Disney Weekend, part 3

Our last morning! Post race, we headed back into the resort. Doug and I last minute got a reservation for breakfast at the Cape May cafe! Yay Mickey waffles! You could eat all the tiny crepes you wanted! After breakfast, we walked around the Yacht Club for a while and then managed to meet up with everyone else who was … Continue Reading →


Disney Weekend, part 2

Day 2 at Disney – we hit Animal Kingdom first thing in the morning and got right on Everest. Doug was even brave enough to snap a picture and not lose his phone! Breakfast of champions: Our view: I think this is Conley’s pic from over at Hollywood Studios – Captain Phasma! Then back to Epcot for lunch. Spicy Hot … Continue Reading →


Disney Weekend, part 1

Doug and I took our first vacation since the previous July, and after a bunch of rough personal stuff (which included a very sick cat that precluded any time out of town), we finally got away for a weekend. Many, many thanks to my parents for staying with Willow for most of the weekend. Doug was running the Star Wars … Continue Reading →

May, part 2. Here’s the beautiful art my friend Dawn Murphy did for me for my story in Contact Light. I


What I’ve Been Up To – May, part 1

Look at me, almost sort of catching up on stuff! Here’s May, part 1. Kitty! May, and Willow is still with us! We had the science consultant for the X-files speak at Goddard, and it was super fun! She was a really good speaker. And it was really fun to hear how she got involved with the show. Short version, … Continue Reading →


Wine Country Wild Berry Cobbler

We bought another (non Food & Wine) cookbook at Disney and Doug made this berry cobbler (with drop biscuit top) and it was AMAZING. The biscuits were a little sweet and just perfect. So good. Recipe: http://www.wdwfanzone.com/2012/11/wine-country-wild-berry-cobbler-november-2012/ Here it was before it went into the oven: Doug starting out the day:


Cherry Blossoms 2016

We made sure to catch the cherry blossoms in DC this year – they bloomed almost 2 weeks earlier than last year! We went on a week day just a day before peak and it ended up being just absolutely perfect weather. It was a gorgeous day. They had these so we had to take pics:


What I’ve Been Up To – April

Here’s April! I started things out (or ended March) with a norovirus that struck really suddenly and violently. I was SO sick. I threw up so badly that I broke all the blood vessels around my eyes. It was crazy. So bad. I’m not sure I’ve ever been that sick since I was a kid. 24 hours later I was … Continue Reading →
