Life with a Scientist and Pets


It’s an experiment!

My wife lives with two dogs and me. I like to consider myself a scientist, so this leads to a funny scenario that often happens. Sometimes our pets will beg for food. I do not condone giving them food. However, sometimes they will beg for food my wife will assure the dogs (earnestly) they will not like it. On several occasions I’ve be incredulous that we don’t know this. Of course, an experiment is required! Case in point, this last week we’ve discovered our dogs do in fact like butternut squash soup, and tomatoes!

Where’ve I been?

Apologies but I’ve been downright terrible updating this blog. I’ve had personal projects I’ve been working on and other blogs I’ve been at! I’ll do my best to try and least “check in” weekly here, but no promises. Here’s what I’ve been up to recently:

Cool Stuff

I just saw “the Book of Mormon” with my wife. I loved it and definitely recommend it, but warning the language is quite vulgar.

Speaking of my awesome wife, she completed a half marathon this last weekend!

I just finished reading Seconds by Bryan Lee O’Malley, a fantastic science-fantasy book about small choices.

Finally, I found two great quotes on failure this week, here are they are in Tweet format!

Seeya next time!


Welcome Back!

And I have returned with a blog! Yes, I’m currently using the older WordPress 2012 theme. Frankly, it’s simple and easy to customize. I’ve got some fun projects I’d like to share, and figured it was worth getting my own place on the web to do it again.

While I’m doing intros, I figured I’d throw out that I don’t intend to do comments on my blog. Don’t get me wrong, a ton of you say great stuff. The time and effort to cultivate a good comment section though is more than I want right now. So, feel free to ping me @nerdnumbers on Twitter. I’ll probably add a contact form at some point.

Anyway, it’s good to be back!
