Just April...

Yes folks, that's right, sometimes I attempt to strip the Nerdy and replace it with "Just"...see equation below:


Yesterday, "Just April" decided to oblige the BF by going to a concert. Normally, I like to have a decent seat, room to dance when I feel like it, and a location within close proximity to some over-priced adult beverages (this makes the "dance when I feel like it" happen more).

But alas, this is not the style in which the BF prefers to enjoy concerts. Nope, he likes to be in the crowd on the floor next to a few thousand of his closest friends, and eventually make it up to the front row, inches from the stage.


And at 5'10" the whole scenario might not be that bad, but for this shrimp at only 5'2" (on a good day), I was smothered between taller people, sweaty people, gross people, drunk people and the BF pretending he was actually one of the rock stars. It wasn't especially pleasant (ok, except the part about Chris making a complete fool of himself, which is always worth it!).

Oh don't get me wrong, the concert itself was amazing with 10 years, sevendust, puddle of mud, chevelle, and shinedown...but after standing in a space barely larger than my stance for 6 hours, yes 6 HOURS (!), I was a little sweaty, a little tired, and a little glad that I only agree to this about once a year. It's one of our many compromises ;-) Oh, and here's some pics...

Shinedown


The hot guy from Shinedown that ended up without his shirt on by the end...whoops!


Chevelle...don't care for them too much...but the rest of the bands made up for it! Woot!

    ohh... btw... sorry about umm, the drunk guy that spilled the beer on you, the chick's butt in your face, the blonde *beta*sqrt(-1)*tau*speed-of-light*heat-transfer-coefficient* (sorry, engineering slang)with her panties in a wad that kept yelling at us, the wierd guy protecting his far-too-easily-injured GF, ohh and whacking you in the head trying to catch that drumstick... I would have given it to you though...

    thanks again!

  2. By my calculations, the solution to the integral above should be (April/2)*(Nerdy^2 - 1).

MCM - Certified Mom

This morning I woke up early, the baby monitor was chirping just a few minutes before my alarm was set to go off. Chris graciously rolled out of bed and set out to re-insert Otto's paci. Meanwhile, I pressed my clothes, curled my hair and brewed some coffee - my standard pre-console routine. After a quick breakfast Zara peeped her head over the railing and I heard a gentle "mama" echo down the stairs. It was still dark, but this little one was ready for her daily breakfast of oatmeal and milk in preparation for a fun day at swim lessons and school. As she sat, eating her "oatsss" (as she calls them), I whirled around the kitchen prepping bottles, gathering outfits for school, and ensuring all the swim lesson supplies were set out. It's hard leaving Chris to take care of both kids in the morning (#momguilt) so I try my best to complete as many get-ahead tasks as possible, in hopes his morning goes smoothly. 
This morning schedule description may seem mundan…

MCM - On Call

It's definitely Monday. Otto spit up on my work clothes this morning, I forgot to brush my teeth and I sat down in my car forgetting to clean the layer of sand from the beach yesterday. Whoops. But, it's also MONDAY!!!!! Which means you get a special look behind the proverbial curtain of Mission Control in a series I'm dubbing "Mission Control Monday". We all need a little "boost" (pun intended) at the beginning of the week, so why not get it from the heart of Manned Spaceflight itself - NASA's Mission Control
This week I am highlighting the little known fact that sometimes, as an ADCO Specialist, I am scheduled to be "On Call". It just so happens I am "on-call" this week! Even though we don't have a sweet 1990's pager, the ADCO on-call is a Specialist with the cumbersome responsibility of having their cell phone strapped to them at all times. Yes, even during the night. Yes, even when you have a 3 month old. Yes, just…

Experience the Kennedy Space Center

Manned spaceflight is not a challenge forged from one molten idea - it's not a put-this-in get-that-out equation - it's not a sport for the isolationists. The notion that it was "one man's passion" or "one nation's resources" that got us to this engineering moment is simply false. And the idea that alienation could ever lead to exploration is impossible. There is likely no other industry or singular goal so intentional about teamwork - from employing teachers to technicians, soliciting standard to specialized natural resources, planning short term and long, investing in ideas and inspiration, training fresh-outs to experts, and communicating technically and politically. Tangibly, the manned spaceflight challenge crosses borders and age and gender, there are pieces of its presence spanning the entire globe, and beyond! 
One of those spots - notable for it's history as the last piece of Earth many astronauts touched before launch - is the Kennedy…
