In the midst of chaos

Tomorrow is the last business day of the year for those who work for the US government. I’m not done with 2012 yet. I’ll be back in FY2013, with a bit more time for blogging and fiber arts. For a while anyway. I hope. Also with tales of Complex Weavers and other good things. Meanwhile… […]

As high as an elephant’s eye

This is not safe for work, nor is it the John Hiatt song I’d intended to post. But. Well. Sometimes these things just happen.

Highly relevant information

Between the post office, national research programs, the quirks of training robots, and an outbreak of zombies, I’m still swamped. But I still save you goodies, just so you know I haven’t forgotten you. Thematic but medieval cartoons. This was yesterday. That’s a warm, early bed, but yesterday was February 13.

I’d still rather live here than […]

Terri Windling is doing a series on her blog on desks: artists, writers, famous, little-known–they’re all there, and it’s fascinating. I love Christmas music, but only […]

New music

Nick and I went shopping on Saturday afternoon. It felt like we visited every retail establishment in town, though of course that’s impossible. You should see the awesome Viking mittens I got at TJ Maxx – leather with fur cuffs! Our first stop, though, was Goodwill, home of random things that can be made into […]
