Whew. You may have noticed things have been quiet around here. There’s a reason. This weekend I drove to Slidell, Louisiana to be the best man at my friend Aaron’s wedding. He was my college roommate at LSU, and he’s about the best friend a person could ask for. After graduation, he’s gone on to help NASA test rocket engines at Stennis Space Center at roughly twice my salary. Huzzah for grad school!
Anyway the ceremony was very nice, and at the reception I met someone who recognized my name as a writer here at ScienceBlogs. What are the odds? But hey, fleeting fame is not such a bad thing.
The next day I was floored by what I’m guessing was food poisoning. Whatever it was was exceptionally unpleasant but by today it has subsided to a generalized soreness.
I’m back now. Sorry for the absence; the physics begins again tomorrow!
