LTP: 12:00 on 12/12/12

Today is 12/12/12, and this post is going up at 12:00 in my time zone. It’s the last time in our lifetime that the date will repeat like that (unless by some miracle of future medicine any of us live to see January 1, 2101, but I kinda doubt I’m making it to 122 years old).

Do you have a favorite or lucky number? In my elementary school classes, we were assigned numbers alphabetically and for a few years running I wound up being #18, so I have a bit of a soft spot for it.

She once read large swaths of "Why Evolution is True" and a geology book aloud to her infant daughter, in the hopes of a) instilling a love of science in her from a very young age and b) boring her to sleep. After escaping the wilds of Waco, Texas and spending the next decade in NYC, she currently lives in upstate New York, where she misses being able to get decent pizza and Chinese takeout delivered to her house. She lost on Jeopardy.
