First post

Well, I have tried to blog before... it didn't go well. I made one post. I've decided to try it again, mainly because it looks like the next few months are going to be pretty interesting (read: busy). Lots to do in the lab, lots of places to travel to, and a wedding all in the mix. Surely this will give me the occasional thing to write about?

So, "Mad Scientist" isn't a very creative title, I know, but it's a little bit fitting. I've been known to be a bit mad at times (pretty much any meaning of the word you'd like to choose), and well, I have been called a scientist from time to time (though I seem to be missing the stereotypical lab coat).

Mostly this will be a personal blog, but as I run across things that are amusing or interesting tid-bits of science I will also probably post those.
