The Parable of the Shower

The Para­ble of the Show­er by Leah Bobet is an absolute­ly hilar­i­ous short sto­ry.

The angel of the LORD cometh upon you in the show­er at the worst pos­si­ble moment: one hand placed upon thy right but­tock and the oth­er bear­ing soap, radio blar­ing, hum­ming a hea­then song of sin.

Thanks to Sarah Mon­ette […]

Weird Fish

If you’d told me yes­ter­day that there’s a fish with a trans­par­ent head, I wouldn’t have believed you. I cer­tain­ly wouldn’t have imag­ined that any­thing would look up and around through its own head for a greater range of vision! But that is exact­ly what the bar­rel­eye (Macropin­na micros­toma) does.

Natterings

I start­ed play­ing around with Social­Whois today, which led me to vis­it Friend­Feed and add Dis­qus and DandyID to this site. And that led me to vis­it­ing a bunch of oth­er sites for the first time in ages, like Blog­lines, which wants me to claim my site all over again.

DandyID has the most exten­sive […]

Miscellany

I lost track of who orig­i­nal­ly linked to what, so I can’t cred­it them prop­er­ly. But thank you to who­ev­er they all were, any­way!

Filed under “anoth­er rea­son I’m proud to be a home­school­er”: Cal­i­for­nia court rules that pri­vate school can oust les­bian stu­dents. I do under­stand that it’s a pri­vate reli­gious school, and that […]

Any Knitters Who Like Graphic Novels?

linked to Hand­knit Heroes yes­ter­day.

Imag­ine you’re a teenag­er, and you have some… spe­cial pow­ers. Maybe even super pow­ers. And one day, at a sleep­over, your best friend in the whole world tells you—you’re not alone. So begins the adven­ture for a cou­ple of teenagers, a sin­gle mom and yarn shop own­er, and […]

Lawn Sanity!

I detest grass. I’m so aller­gic that I con­sid­er the stuff a per­son­al attack. Beyond that, I’ve always con­sid­ered all the mon­ey and ener­gy that is put into ined­i­ble crops that aren’t even pret­ty to be a dis­gust­ing form of con­spic­u­ous con­sump­tion.

I cheered out loud when I read this arti­cle: The Incred­i­ble, Edi­ble […]
