August 2011

Credit This is the sequel to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which I read back in July.  I almost bought the third book at a Borders closeout when I was visiting my parents in Orlando (they didn’t have any copies of this one), but I’m glad I stuck to reading the series in order […]

Oh, death

by Chelsea Myers on August 30, 2011

Blogging has been limited because our computer is, in fact, dead.  The graphics card gave up the ghost, and because it’s part of the motherboard on our laptop, it would have been 2/3 as expensive as a new computer to replace it.  We were able to get all out files extracted to an external hard […]

RIP???

by Chelsea Myers on August 25, 2011

Our computer may have died last night????  It was working fine yesterday morning, but we came home after picking up our CSA box to find it unresponsive.  When Daniel tried to turn it on NOTHING happened. Why????????????????????? We want to see if the hard drive is salvageable because it has um… all of our pictures […]

Dinner is served

by Chelsea Myers on August 24, 2011

Oh yes, I did. Once ice cream sundae with all the candy toppings + hot fudge, caramel, and peanut butter + a cherry on top.  I don’t always choose to gorge myself on my birthday, but when I do, I prefer Babcock Ice Cream. Thanks to everyone for the Birthday cards, phone calls, comments and […]

29!

by Chelsea Myers on August 23, 2011

In Pushing Daisies terms, I’m 29 years and 3 minutes old right now, and all of you – near and far – are invited to my birthday party. We’ll begin with cherry chocolate chip zucchini bread, inspired – appropriately enough- by Brownies and Zucchini.  I actually mashed up the dry goods/ flavoring portion of this […]

Five things

by Chelsea Myers on August 22, 2011

I have learned during my (nearly – on Thursday) 3 years as a research statistician. 1. The hardest thing about any job is learning what questions you need to ask.  It’s frustrating to not know what you don’t know, and I think it’s the #1 reason that starting a new job is so stressful.  I’m […]

Do I get to write a race report for a race I didn’t run?  Sure, why not? My plan was to get up early, run, scarf some breakfast, and bike out to mile 11.5 of the Madison Mini Marathon to cheer on a few friends as they passed by.  I did get in a run […]

Mad Spectatin’

by Chelsea Myers on August 20, 2011

I’m out cheering on the runners of the Madison Mini Marathon this morning.  Good luck to Kerri, Jamie and Linda!  Hopefully the rain will hold off.  Racing in the rain is not a lot of fun.  Plus I’d hate for it to ruin my fabulous sign.  I made sure to cover both motivational bases. Both […]

Friday Link Love

by Chelsea Myers on August 19, 2011

This is the first (and for sure not last because I’ve already started working on next Friday) Friday Link Love.  We’ll start with two links that have absolutely nothing to do with each other: Yes you can make yogurt in the crock pot!  We did this several times years ago but drug back out the […]
