One Smart Cookie

I have had the pleasure of meeting a LOT of bright and clever people over the years.  This young graduate is no exception.  Lauren has interned in a hospital already…and that’s before she heads off to a pre-med program at university!  Although her biology and chemistry acumen takes a major role of her life,  I threw in a few other interests that keep her busy (swimming, being from Buffalo, and graduating) as well.  Luckily, Lauren has a kind disposition and is forgiving of my love for word play….

A Geek’s Valentine

Geek. Nerd. Techie. Egghead.  Smart and quirky people warm the cockles of my heart.  There’s a chemistry about them (tee hee).  Here’s to those who claim the nomenclature on Valentine’s day! Um. Please forgive me for sneaking in a Star Wars reference (last photo).

“Element”-ary, my dear Watson.

“Periodically,” (ha, get it?) my inner nerd comes out and plays.  The perfect opportunity arose with Alyssa’s graduation party. Beautiful, bright and talented, Alyssa has quite the affinity for book learning and the sciences.  Although I couldn’t fit the entire periodic table of elements into the cake box, it was close enough.  Hope you enjoy my symbiotic semblance of sugar and science.    PS.  Good luck at Boston College; go, Lys, go!
