In April DH and I plan on going to the Trinity site. It is only open about twice a year so we never had a chance to get there before. It sounds pretty interesting, and not like something everyone does on the vacations. I am also really excited about seeing the starts with out all the light pollution. It has been a really long time for me.

Yeah, I prefer to go to bed at 8:30, too. Luckily for me, I have MLK day off work, so I don't have to worry about being a little groggy. Whatever, there are lunar eclipses every year.

I am eastern, but my usual bedtime is 830. It will be quite a stretch to make it that late and then have a productive day at work. I'll have to play it by ear :).

Oh, I hope you do! Are you eastern time?

The moon enters Earth's umbra at 3:33 UT = 10:33 pm EST Sunday night...
is fully eclipsed from 4:41 UT = 11:41 pm EST...
until 5:43 UT = 12:43 am EST Monday morning...
and then is back out of the umbra at 6:50 UT = 1:50 am EST

I'm going to watch as it enters totality and comes back out, but I'll be in a warm bed sleeping from 11:41 to 12:43. It's watching the shadows work their way across the Moon that I so enjoy.

You have roof access?!?!?! That's fantastic!

I usually avoid things that happen at night, since I need a lot of sleep, but I might have to look into (up to?) this :D.

Pretty much all of the U.S. will have a good view. Eric and I talked about taking the kids to a hotel out on Fire Island to get away from the city lights, but we couldn't find a place with roof access and since the eclipse will be so high in the sky, it seemed to make more sense to stay in Manhattan and go up on the roof. Not like the city lights can drown out the MOON, after all. Should be fun. Cold, but fun.

Lunar eclipse on the 21st. I thought I was going to be in DC, but now it looks like I'll be in New York so I'm trying to figure out if it's too late to gather my astronomy club kids.

Rebecca,

No, my thesis was on topological systems theory. (Of the Steve Vickers kind, NOT topological dynamic systems.)

Homotopy Type Theory is a more recent interest.

I am excited about spirit week.

The fleece for me to make myself a pair of footie pajamas came in the mail today.

My colleague Margaret and I will twin together - we had a hard time thinking of things we both own that we can wear to twin in (we look very different and have very different senses of style, which will just make it that much easier to be recognized as twins!), so I'm making her a dress that looks like something I wear all the time, and she's bringing me a purple lipstick (I have actually never in my life worn lipstick!) and I'm going to get my hair braided for the day.

Sports day I think I'm just gonna wear some Blackhawks stuff, but maybe I'll decide to wander around in hockey pads for the day...

And then for celebrity day I'm going to reprise Lady Gaga in the meat dress 'cause I was so pleased with the effect the first time I did it and now I have a fresh audience.

Can't wait!!!

Jeff, I have to look up homotopy type theory. Is that what your thesis is about?

So there is a new month, a new quarter, and a new year upon us. It can be big things or little things. We want to be excited with you!

What are you excited about?

For me, I have ordered myself a drill. I am very excited about it since it will help me get some shelves up in one of my under utilized closets.
