Unfortunately K

Here is the Smoking Typewriter Award (it's actually called a Premios Dardo award). Christy was nice enough to pass this award along (although, lately, I'm afraid my keypad is gathering dust rather than smoking :) The first rule of this award is to post the award image, and link back to Christy.

"Given for recognition of cultural, ethical, literary, and personal values transmitted in the form of creative and original writing... created with the intention of promoting fraternization between bloggers, a way of showing affection and gratitude for work that adds value to the Web."

So the second step is to put my name into Google Images. So, now I had to decide whether to use my super-intriguing pseudonym (K) or my real name (well of course, I did both). However, I'm sticking with K, because, as those of you who read here often know, I am very paranoid and have a vivid imagination. This wasn't the first picture but one of the first, and I really like it.

Next, put the phrase "Unfortunately, K" in a Google search and share the results. I admit, I did do some picking and choosing :) See my comments in parentheses after each one:

unfortunately, k and d are the opposite of what we have used so far !!!! Also, m stands for n... (This sounds just like me, very confusing and confused in general).

unfortunately, k-means clustering will sometimes fail to give correct results, an unaware fact that may be overlooked (I know all about clusters and unaware facts).

Unfortunately K-Lube is not the name of a shady s_x shop, but it is a great oil change place right near my parents house in Danville. (Ha ha ha)!

Unfortunately, K won't see the post. She's boycotting Stoopidfreshmind because of a post she thought would be detrimental to a certain love ... (Well, if it's going to be detrimental to love, I'm boycotting, too)!

Unfortunately, K is not computable and is provably difficult to approximate. (That's me in a nutshell, particularly given my dislike for math).

This is now officially an awesome way to tell the story of the world. Unfortunately, /k/ isn't known for its writefags. ... (What are writefags? I agree blogging is an officially awesome way to tell the story of my world).

Thanks, Christy! This was more fun to do than I expected! And the final piece of this award is passing this one along to ten other blogs, but I'll just say to at least google "unfortunately your name" for the laughs!

So sorry to be behind on this one. These cracked me up and reminded me of this award. Thanks!

Also, you hate math??! Chris asks me all the time how I can hate math and be in my field. I tell him it's very easy then play dumb when he asks me to do some mathematical. :)
