The personal life update:

Since I've obviously started blogging again (at least for the moment) I thought this might be a good time to bring you up to date on the latest excuses reasons I haven't been blogging much over the last few months.

I've been working a real, live jobby job. It's one that has extremely limited internet access, and has been exhausting enough that I haven't really had the energy to write much after work - I'm now an Assistant Aquatics Manager on an Army base. (Think Hasselhoff with a big goatee and bigger gut.) I'll probably have more to write about that later. For now, I'm still working on figuring out what is and isn't going to be appropriate for me to write publicly and under my own name.

I'll have more to say about that, and other things, later on. For now, I've got to run. There's a big downside to being employed in a physical fitness field on a military base - every now and then I'm forced to wake up at an hour even more insanely early than the soldiers do, because someone has to get things ready for them to do their 0-dark-30 morning PT. And tomorrow is one of those days.

Four years and four months ago, almost to the day, I started a humble little blog way over in a tiny corner of the blogosphere. Back in the day, there were few voices of women scientists in the blogosphere, and even fewer of women computer scientists. I had never had much luck keeping any…
As you might have noticed, ScienceBlogs picked up a couple of new bloggers recently. Peter Janiszewski and Travis Saunders moved their blog, Obesity Panacea, over to these parts last week. Their move gives me an opportunity that's way too good to pass up - an excuse to present my latest excuse for…
I hate you, Comcast. I really do. My hatred of Comcast also explains the paucity of activity on this blog over the last few days. You see, over the weekend, I moved to a larger house, and I've had no Internet access other than Panera's or Starbucks for the last three days. Before that, I had lined…

Um, what on earth? Do these people even read what they brainfart?

Mike, looking forward to some more of your bio-musings when you get the chance.

Let me just say that the first comment is a block of completely illogical and incoherent text.

Hope you can continue to post Mike.

Yay, Mike! You're a real science blogger now.

OK, OK. I'm just jealous - I've never been hit by a David Mabus attack.
