Happy Tenth Anniversary, MuseBlog!

I’m sure I’m not alone in saying that MuseBlog has been a hugely positive formative influence on me. But, as I am a scientist at heart, it wasn’t enough for me to just say “I’m sure I’m not alone.” So I asked some of my friends how they felt about having had MuseBlog in their life for ten years.

Also, I (Dodecahedron) baked an honorary cake with Fern. Julia also baked a cake. Then, with the cake-baking fervor going around, Jadestone made some cupcakes. Pics below the fold.

Yoohoo, Armada!

If you’re out there, we haven’t forgotten that you share a birthday with MuseBlog. Happy 19th, old-timer!

Happy Ninth Birthday, MuseBlog!

Nine years — how is that possible? We are uncharacteristically speechless. Say something, somebody!


Happy 450th Birthday, William Shakespeare!

Don Pedro. Your silence most offends me, and to be merry best becomes you, for out o’ question you were born in a merry hour.

Beatrice. No, sure, my lord, my mother cried, but then there was a star danced, and under that was I born. — Cousins, God give you joy!

Much Ado About Nothing

Also (and actually) born today: Optimatum and Rós þyrnir. Joy to all!


Happy 205th Birthday, Abraham Lincoln and Charles Darwin!

We owe both of you so much.

Happy Presumed Birthday, Will Shakespeare!

We don’t know that you were born on April 23, 1564, just that you were baptized a few days later. And there’s no evidence that you ever spelled your name “Shakespeare” when you signed it. But never mind. You gave us lines like these:

How sweet the moonlight sleeps upon this bank!
Here will we sit and let the sounds of music
Creep in our ears: soft stillness and the night
Become the touches of sweet harmony.
Sit, Jessica. Look how the floor of heaven
Is thick inlaid with patines of bright gold:
There’s not the smallest orb which thou behold’st
But in his motion like an angel sings,
Still quiring to the young-eyed cherubins;
Such harmony is in immortal souls;
But whilst this muddy vesture of decay
Doth grossly close it in, we cannot hear it.

Happy Birthday, Albert Einstein (1879-1955)!

A century later, we still have trouble wrapping our minds around the bizarre universe you unveiled. But it really does seem to be where we live.
