IgNobel Insanity

What an incredibly crazy week! The big build up was to last night, when went to the IgNobel award ceremony. So much fun! I even got some knitting done on my pal's Ravenclaw socks while we waiting for the show to start. Sixth time is the charm... or something.As an added bonus, Toscanini's Ice Cream in Central Square was giving away "IgNobel Vanilla" icecream today at 11 am.
Chiquita isn't allowed at school today, since she had a bit of a fever yesterday, so we went together. It was very good. Even if you don't want to consider the source of the vanilla flavoring. (The chemistry prize went to Mayu Yamamoto for her research on the presence of vanilin in cow dung.)

PS. If anybody plans on going to the lectures at MIT on Saturday let me know. We are hoping to be there too.
