What I’ve Been Up To, September, part 1

Cruising into September… Yes, it was the summer of Pokemon Go. This still cracks me up over a month later. My friend Meredith told me there was a Pikachu in our stairwell at lunch – and then there was Alex… Stephanie and Mat came to visit at work: The Godzillas. I think one is mugging the other. Another sunset at … Continue Reading →


What I’ve Been Up To, August, part 1

And now August… Sunset at Allen Pond: Hanging with my girl: Our crepe myrtle survives! My girl in Prisma: Jasmin, my former intern-for-a-week sent me this little pic of her with a Robert Goddard rocket! She found one in the UK!


What I’ve Been Up To, July, part 2

Back to July. It wasn’t so long ago was it? That was when the Pokemon craze started. It was really fun looking around work to see what was a Pokestop. Like John Mather’s Nobel Prize. The Goddard Godzillas are still around. I don’t know if this one is rapeling or is being thrown over. Pretty twilight on a neighborhood walk: … 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 →

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!

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 →


What I’ve Been Up To – March, part 2

Doug and I met up with my oldest friend, Alicia (we’ve known each other since we were babies) for dinner in DC – we tried Ambar, which is a Balkan restaurant at Eastern Market. The food was amazing! It was small plates so we got to try a lot of different things. This was probably my favorite thing we had. … Continue Reading →


What I’ve Been Up To – March, part 1

How about some pictures? We start off on Leap Day. I walked into our little break room and saw that someone had done this to an old printer and made an homage to Office Space with the Goddard Godzillas: I thought… I can do better than this. I dug out my Office Space kit and fixed it. Click on the … Continue Reading →


What I’ve Been Up To – February, part 2

February part 2! Still going to be lots of cat pictures. My high school friend, her science-loving son, and her father-in-law came for another visit to see JWST! She happened to be in town, so it was really nice that they were able to come by! By this point, Willow had her feeding tube out, and just had a bandage … Continue Reading →


What I’ve Been Up To – October, Part 3

Yep, you get a part 3! Here’s some more cat: Jasmin, my intern for the week, sent me a present! Wrapped in cupcake paper! Because we had a running cupcake joke after we traumatized her with cupcakes and a Nobel Laureate: Look at the awesome stuff she sent me! More late dahlias: Our anniversary dinner at Christophers ended with this … Continue Reading →

We went to the Pumpkin Patch after we tromped around Glendening Wildlife Preserve with friends. Sheep!
