In SCIENCE! and tech news, from The Mister:

I also found a couple of noteworthy items:

Fanboy!Coulson in the left background (behind the superhusbands!) is my favorite of these little vignettes.

  2. hi Mandy! after cyber stalking you for like 2 seconds it's clear that we should no doubt be BFFs! especially since you refer to yourself as "just a small town girl living in a nerdy world" and i immediately sang it to the tune of Journey's Don't Stop Believin'. i seriously hope that's why you call yourself that because it made me so happy!
    stay excellent!

    1. Nikki! So glad you stopped by. And yes, my "tagline" is an homage to the Journey song. ;)
