All Quotes


Howdy, friendly reading person!
I'm on a bit of a hiatus right now, but only to work on other projects -- one incredibly exciting example being the newly-released kids' science book series Things That Make You Go Yuck!
If you're a science and/or silliness fan, give it a gander! See you soon!

Radio Dazed

(Science marches on like a lion… or a lamb. Or something. Anyway, it’s spring and a new week and that means a new Secondhand SCIENCE.

Hop on over to learn all about glial cells, and what they have to do with Scooby Doo, training gyms and everyone’s favorite mushmouthed Hollywood boxer. It’s a champ!)

Friends. Family members. Former coworkers.

(Also, random Googling internet weirdos. In fact, probably mostly that.)

Lend me your ears.

(Actually, don’t lend them to me, because I won’t be the one talking.

Or rather, I will. But I’m not the one in charge. Of your ears. Or the talking into them.

Look, this has gone sort of sideways here. Let me start over.)

What are you planning on doing tomorrow (Thursday the 26th) at noon?

Uh huh. Okay. Gotcha. Yep, that sounds great.

Now, don’t do any of those things you just said.

Instead, tune into BreakThru Radio online and DJ Jess’ Biology of the Blog show.

Every week, Jess showcases a weblog and chats with the wild-eyed lunatic behind it — and this week, that wild-eyed lunatic is me!

“I just wanted to feel better about the ridiculous nonsense I spouted in a public forum, is all.”

(I can’t actually speak to the lunacy or eye-wilderness of the previous guests. In the shows I’ve listened to, they’ve seemed pretty sane and composed. I just wanted to feel better about the ridiculous nonsense I spouted in a public forum, is all.)

The link above may not work until the show actually airs, I think. Which maybe I should have told you somewhere before the link, in case you clicked it right away. But how would that work, anyway? If I put a warning up there, like:


Then you’re totally going to click on it. Probably twice. I know how this works.

Also, I’m not entirely positive that the show airs at noon. But you should maybe cancel all of your plans starting at noon, just to be safe. I know I will. And that’s a lot of afternoon sleeping to give up. I’m just saying.

That pretty much covers it. Tomorrow, noonish (probably). Check out DJ Jess for some great tunes and a little Q & A with me on Biology of the Blog.

(Full disclosure: we didn’t actually talk about biology; that’s just the name of the show. Although we did chat a bit about colonizing Mars.

I mean, not us colonizing Mars, obviously. We’re both way too busy for that. She’s got radio shows to do every week, and I… well. Those forty-three episodes of the Simpsons sitting on my TiVo aren’t going to watch themselves.)

So this has been a mess. But if you thought this post was rambling and tangential and awkward… oh, there’s plenty more where that came from. Tune in tomorrow.
