Happy Birthday Carr2D2

A few months ago I was contacted by a person I didn’t know (but vaguely knew of) about being on a panel to discuss evolutionary biology and blogging and so on. Her name was Carrie Iwan. In fact, I think that still is her name.

We had a number of professional and pleasant interactions via email, as she organized a fairly large scale affair. Sometimes when you plan an event, all the work is in the planning, and little needs to be done when things are underway … it runs itself. This event, however, required continued and constant attention and Carrie managed a plethora of volunteers and participants and made sure everything came off like it was supposed to and better.


During that time I had the pleasure of actually meeting and getting to know Carrie, as well as her husband Tim, and I have to say it has been a great pleasure to do so. They are people that I want to be friends with, and they haven’t changed their phone number or told me they’ve moved out of town yet, so I think maybe that can happen.

Anyway, today is Carrie’s Birthday. Hey Carrie, someday, when we are REAL friends, I’ll get you an actual present!!! Love you!

Greg

    Careful, Greg. Last time you were in Carrie’s power, you got trapped in a hotel suite while a medical and bureaucratic emergency went on in the hall. There is no telling what would happen if you had her full attention…
