Happy Thursday!  I will be up in the mountains at a retreat/orientation/conference for my department without any cell phone service and limited WiFi.  Hopefully I can make some new friends!


  1. Thanks so much for the tag! I hope your retreat is great. I want to run a half-marathon, too :)


  2. Ooh, thanks for the tag! I love how you want to be a keynote speaker at a science meeting. I have 'give a TED talk' on my list, on what though, I have no idea. I am hoping a great world changing idea will some to me one of these days, lol.

  3. The Secret Window is one of my favorites too. :)
