So the thing about the work that I do (besides the fact that it involves very complex mathematical formulas and demands a high degree of skill in terms of applying the principles of quantum physics) (whatever) (I’ve never been very strong with the numbers and especially the symbols) is that there are a couple of times every year when it just gets cuckoo. It’s not a bad thing, mind you – in a weird way it is very fun and makes me feel kind of like I’m on the staff of the West Beverly Blaze and Andrea Zuckerman is my demanding but fair editor who is pushing me toward a seemingly impossible deadline – but it’s hectic.

So I think it’s safe to say that I’m going to be a little scarce around here for the next week or so. My days are a little more full than what is typical for me, and by the time I get home and tend to homework and fix supper and then clean up the kitchen (credit where credit is due: my husband cleaned up the kitchen tonight) (bless him), my introverted side is begging for some peace and quiet and maybe even some quality reality television.

How could I possibly deprive the introvert of Chris Harrison and Sean Lowe? HOW, I ASK YOU?

Given all of that, I think it makes sense to put the blog on the way-back burner this week so that Andrea Zuckerman and I can plow through our work-related need-to-do lists.

Those quantum physics problems aren’t going to solve themselves, you know.

Y’all have a good week!

Needless to say I will miss you terribly.

  1. Have fun plowing through the words!

  2. She was quite a little pistol, wasn’t she? No wonder Brandon wavered in his Andrea love/hate.

  3. Be good to yourself, ma’am.

    you and melanie both down-shifting for march…i am already experiencing withdrawal symptoms. enjoy being balanced; you are a good example for all of us, but you will be missed!

  6. I LOVED that show and Andrea was the person I wanted to be!!! Some people wanted to be Kelly and very few wanted to be Donna but I would’ve loved to be Andrea. Yep, you just took me all the way back to 1997 and it was awesome!!!!!! Thanks for trip today Sophie!

    ps Who is Sean going to pick? I don’t know if I can make it until next Monday!

    pps I really am upset about you taking a break but I totally understand! Come on with spring break!

  7. Tell Brandon, Brenda, and the rest of gang we said Hi!

    I have never loved you more than when you referenced 90210.
    A devoted fan foever.
    Meet you at the Peach Pit?
