Ascensions

Hello, bunnies! Did you have a hip-hop-happy Easter?

I had an egg-cellent time!

I hope you took some time to meditate upon the most holy ascension ever witnessed by man. I am, of course, referring to the recent rise of Bertha, the giant tunnel-boring drill that got oh-so-very stuck underneath Seattle’s Alaskan Way Viaduct.

As incredible as the above video is, I do believe that they missed out on a GOLDEN opportunity when selecting the soundtrack.

In all seriousness, I hope that everybody had an enjoyable easter/passover/vernal equinox/festival of the pagan goddess Eostre, depending on whatever tradition you and your family choose to celebrate the emergence of spring.

Seattle can really turn it OUT at the end of winter.

I must apologize that I have gone so long without posting. Things have been, as always, busy over here on my end. I took a trip to Washington D.C.

I'm trying to become more presidential.

I also moved!

I’ve found some time to have some fun. I went to see an amazing performance by The Seattle Men’s Chorus.

They sang “Tyler’s Suite” (a work celebrating the life of Tyler Clementi, the Rutgers student who took his own life after experiencing cyber-bullying) as well as “I Am Harvey Milk” (a biographical operetta about the nation’s first openly gay elected official). The performance was incredible, the singing was amazing, exuberant, tragic, and ultimately inspiring.

Throughout all of this I’ve been writing my thesis and finishing up the last few experiments for a new manuscript. I’ll probably be posting less frequently during the coming weeks. Somehow writing on my blog just isn’t terribly relaxing after spending 10 hours writing my thesis at work.

I hope everyone’s week is off to a WONDERFUL start.

What’s the weather like where you are? Has Spring sprung?
