Oh noes...

Due to an unforseen event involving a baby, a pitcher of pink lemonaide, and a computer I may not be blogging for awhile.

At least until I can afford a new keyboard.

Meanwhile, how cool is it that Scorsese finally won his Oscar?

Holy crap

That was a seriously busy week.

Now that I've written, with the proofreading help of dear Brian, the paper from hell and the stupid busywork journals from hell I can maybe get some blogging done.

You know what's spooky?

Seeing an aged image of your 7 month old baby.

Yes, I'm still playing with that face morphing thing. Original image here.

Abbie can now clap hands on command and is growing two more teeth in her top jaw. But they're not the front ones, they're the ones one over from that, so she looks like she's some sort of gummy baby vampire with little nubby fangs.

Also, incedentally, read this post at The Silver Oak Leaf to understand why I haven't felt like doing the feminist blog thing that much recently. It sums up my feelings pretty well.

Between that and the blogt world A-lister's so-called "Blogroll Amnesty Day," during which many big bloggers culled many medium bloggers from their rolls for no good reason, (and of which skippy has a pretty good take on,) I'm kind of burnt out on blogtopian (y! sctp!) politics. Hope you enjoy a run of fluffy-content free posts until I get my groove back.

(**sounds of chirping crickets**)

Hello? Tap this thing on?

Okay, now we know we're screwed

The Corpse Flowers are in bloom.
LONDON (Reuters) - Unseasonably warm weather may have tricked the world's smelliest plant into blooming in the middle of the northern hemisphere winter, botanists at the Eden Project where the native of Sumatra is housed, told Reuters.

The warmth of 2006 and mild winter to date have encouraged the Titan Arum or Corpse Flower into a phenomenal growth spurt and into flower -- an event that usually happens only once every six to nine years.
Now can we say global climate change is real? Pretty please?

At the Aelthing.

At the 2007 Taos Viking Festival. Much glory to be had.

Will post pictures upon my return.

"I'm sorry, but that's not a hair question."

I hate to make it YouTube week, but this is too good not to share.

Oh my goodness. These guys are my new heroes.

Full story here, if you've been living under a rock the past few days.

Umm, hint to the Boston PD? I doubt real terrorists would make something with a giant blinking cartoon moon man giving you the finger.

There's so many college kids in Boston, you'd think any number of them walking by could have explained it to the dudes in the explosion-proof suits.

Amen Brother

Must watch now. Very cool.
