Seeing how distressed muddalicious is by the fact that no one's writing... I'll go ahead and finally post something, even if only to elicit a couple "hi"s and "welcome"s... not a super exciting conversation starter, but it'll have to do. Hey, everyone! I'm Shelley DeFord, and I've been silently reading this community journal for a while... in the least stalkerish way possible, I promise. I live in Pleasanton, California, which is in the San Francisco bay area. And I've been thinking I'll major in mathematics... or maybe that math/bio major. We'll see.
Sure, let's do a math joke, that's nice and safe and I'm *finally* in an environment where people will appreciate a good math joke instead of rolling their eyes at me. Yay! [My brother, who majored in math at Pomona, told me this one.]
Q: What do you get when you cross a mountain climber with a mosquito?
A: Nothing - you can't cross a scalar with a vector!
Teehee. Yay for us nerds!
Anyway, guess I'll wrap up here. Looking forward to talking to / meeting you all soon! :-)
