Bookcase Bedroom!




New tiles for the Uroko house

Orig­i­nal­ly uploaded by akamé

I sup­pose it could be called a Book­case Tree, because of its iasic deis­ngn. It wouldn’t be the best choice of design for sleep­ing quar­ters for a claus­tro­phone lke me, and pro­crati­na­tors wpuld find it even hard­er to quit read­ing and go to sleep. I would love to have this for a lit­tle one

Gary Gygax Died

I heard a rumor about this ear­li­er today but couldn’t find con­fir­ma­tion. Now, though, it’s on CNN and most of the oth­er major news sites: Gary Gygax, Dun­geons & Drag­ons cre­ator, dies. The Wired arti­cle is slight­ly dif­fer­ent from the AP sto­ry every­body else is run­ning.

That’s a Good Sign

Our first dis­cus­sion in one of my new class­es is about sci­ence vs. tech­nol­o­gy. Most of my class­mates seem to be able to write in sen­tences and para­graphs! That’s a bless­ing, and not near­ly as com­mon as it should be.

I did blog!

It’s over here today.

The Insanity of BMI

Kate Hard­ing cre­at­ed this very cool slide show to show just how absurd it is to rely on body mass index to deter­mine whether or not peo­ple are at a healthy weight.

BTW — I did not “miss” blog­ging yes­ter­day. Feb­ru­ary 29 was the only “day of rest” for Blog365, so I took it 🙂 It felt odd, though!

Semester done!

I took my project man­age­ment final tonight, so I’m done with the semes­ter! Now I’m try­ing to down­load the text­book files for next semes­ter, but the ebook serv­er is hav­ing Issues.

In the mean­time, I’m lis­ten­ing to some love­ly new music, free and legal, over at The­Six­ty­One. I don’t know how Sam found out about the place, but it’s neat.

SBQ: Stitching weaknesses?

What is your cross stitch weak­ness? (i.e., What do you have to have when you see it, even if you are sup­posed to be on the Wag­on?)

I’m sup­posed to go telling my weak­ness­es, in pub­lic?

Well, I guess I’ve already exposed them, con­sid­er­ing the lists on my site. I adore “dif­fer­ent” pat­terns. If it jumps out from all the cutesy crap, I want it. Celtic knot­work is anoth­er one. I haven’t seen too many good pagan designs, so when I do, I pay atten­tion.

Flu. Mono. Whatever.

What­ev­er it is, it sucks. No mat­ter how long Katie and I sleep, we stay exhaust­ed.

We did watch more Dex­ter while we were awake. And I stud­ied for my Project Man­age­ment final. I’m actu­al­ly using the study guide, like a good girl! Hey, my brain is so stu­pid right now that I need all the help I can get. Maybe I should have read some of the text, huh?

Oh! I fin­ished Shirley Damsgaard’s Ophe­lia & Abby series. Very good stuff! They’re cozy mys­ter­ies, but there’s also an inter­est­ing por­tray­al of peo­ple fol­low­ing a “fam­i­ly tra­di­tion” of folk mag­ic.1

On to Stranger in Death!


1 I have to say that the ref­er­ences to “witch­es” have caused some inter­est­ing changes in the ads Google is stick­ing on this site. Love spells? Please!

Never, Never on a Sunday

Nope, not Sun­day. Most­ly. Well, maybe some­times. Damned ear­worm!

I was try­ing to be Very, Very good today as I wrapped up my assign­ments for the semes­ter. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, I got com­plete­ly dis­tract­ed by the fact that I hadn’t done a bloody thing with Pagan Par­ents since adopt­ing the site. I got it work­ing at a min­i­mal lev­el, so it should be easy to add con­tent now.

Hint Hint: Con­tent! I need con­tent! Col­lab­o­ra­tors! Seri­ous­ly, if you have opin­ions about par­ent­ing as a pagan, or you know of resources that I should link to, please let me know. If you know some­body who might want to write an arti­cle or blog with us there, have him or her con­tact me.
