Danica McKellar

Standard

My muse has been quite absent
So I have to hunt around
For something to inspire me
When nothing can be found

Today the word was “percolate
But nothing came to mind
Except my mom’s old percolator
Which I cannot find

So I looked up quotes with percolate
Which are surprisingly few
But one of them caught my eye
And I’ll share it with you*

Not because the quote means much to me
But the one who said it
Is an actress I’ve seen on Hallmark —
Honestly — I’m glad I read it

I learned this woman with beautiful eyes
Who plays love interest to a prince
Is a MATHEMATICIAN!
I was not easy to convince —

Yet she’s quite close to brilliant
Closer far than I
With an Erdos-Bacon score of 6
I really cannot lie

Danica McKellar —
I’m really quite impressed
You are far more talented
Than I would have ever guessed.


*The quote:

I took a break from acting for four years to get a degree in mathematics at UCLA, and during that time I had the rare opportunity to actually do research as an undergraduate. And myself and two other people co-authored a new theorem: Percolation and Gibbs States Multiplicity for Ferromagnetic Ashkin-Teller Models on Two Dimensions, or Z2.
