Having Fun: A Call for Scientiae Posts:

Ok I know that many of you know this already, but heck since the post is going to facebook as well- I'm going to say it again. Scientiae is a blog carnival that compiles posts written about the broad topic of "women in STEM," (STEM=science, technology, engineering and mathematics) and this month- ta dah I'm hosting it (sure I host one Scientiae every year, but how can anyone, especially me, resist a "ta dah"?).

Anyway the host gets to chose the theme and since I'm just back from a trip to Paris and Amsterdam where for the whole trip (Are you ready for this?), I didn't work; I just had fun, guess what- the theme is fun.

You know fun-- like eating take out while hanging out with people you love; watching Angelina Jolie kick butt in "Salt"; walking the streets of Paris with no destination; pedal boating the canals of Amsterdam in the November rain; watching baby JJ as he figures out how to crawl up stairs (ok that was pretty scary). You know fun.

So fun is the theme for this month. What do you do for fun? What's the most fun thing you've ever done? What do you do that makes you smile, giggle, fall on the floor laughing? What's the most fun thing you can imagine doing?

So folks let's have some fun and give each other ideas for new ways to have more fun. Please submit your posts by December 6th and I'll have the carnival up before my December 9th birthday. Feel free to give me some ideas for what I can do to have fun on my birthday.

To submit a post, please email the "permalink" URL of your post to scientiaecarnival [a] gmail [dt] com .

If you've never submitted to Scientiae this is a great time to start.
