Just So You'll Know
Bethany King-McGoldrick, of the new blog we have have been pushing (and several of y'all have been visiting) Bad Data, Bad - sidebar - is in major life-transition mode. Sometimes people like to get a picture of who they are dealing with when reading blogs, but she doesn't like to brag, or is Yankee private, or something. So you are going to get the picture here. Ms. Data Analysis is pregnant with her first, just got a Master's this week, and also just bought a house. Which means she is now far more owned by her house, her degree, and her family than she was a year ago. We call that adulthood, and in an odd and paradoxical way, being owned is indeed a freedom. She has twice as much understanding of what she is getting into than others her age, but two times zero is still zero, so that's not much. The readership of this blog is more in her parents' generation, and I hear y'all chuckling out there. Our connection is that we are friends of her parents and she is between the ages of our oldest two, who she went to school with. We have other connections with the family I will not describe here, but all-in-all, she is somewhat niece-ish to us. Other than getting married in an orchard at a winery - damn hippies - she is a noticeably solid person. Congratulations on many levels, Bethany.
