‘Twas the night before New Year’s

‘Twas the night before New Year’s
And all through the house
Football and physics were on tap
In the spirit of Gauss…, er…

Writing a student rec
For Notre Dame
While watching the Irish
Winning the game

And planning for 2011 –
I got a nice grant! –
Bergen and Copenhagen,
maybe Sweden? I can’t.

Or maybe I can
While also expanding
My nanotech startup,
Teaching notwithstanding.

There’s a lot on tap
This year for me.
Better than 2010
I hope it will be.

So good wishes for New Year’s
I send to you
For a wonderful 2011
Through and through!

  1. Ian, this is clever. I think Gauss is a great genius, the public doesn’t know of him as much as science/math wonks. So tell us about your grant, sounds good. BTW visit my blog sometimes, I plan more QM stuff shortly.

    Thanks Neil. There’s a lot the public doesn’t know about so Gauss isn’t alone. Sorry, I’m just being cynical.

    Anyway, I got an FQXi mini-grant (which actually isn’t so “mini” – mine was the third largest awarded this round). I’m using it to tie together some loose ends from a series of papers I produced between 2006 and 2009, all of which were summarily ignored or so heatedly debated reviewers couldn’t agree on its worth. Oh well, c’est la vie.
