How are you smelling?

Look at me

I have been watching the Olympics.  I confess to an odd fascination with curling 🙂 Watching it can be a bit dull – I want to play!  Understand that I am not good at any sport – at school, I was always the last to get picked.  Really.  Even the girl-of-size got picked before me.  She was in goal.  I didn’t share her blocking power.  These days I could give her a run for her money.

Some people eat cake, I visit SLAC

Posted by episode81 on February 20, 2010

No cake for me thanks

Yesterday I went on a tour of SLAC – the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, or the SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory as it is now named.  Some people eat birthday cake and have a party.  I tour SLAC.  I dare to be different 😀

Anywho, I digress …

On February 17th, my heart broke.  I lost two friends in a tragic accident. They were good people. They are missed, by me and many, many others.

There are no words that can express the sadness I feel.

Life is unpredictable and, sometimes, too short.  Take time to enjoy what you have. Do it now.

The Annual Curry

Posted by episode81 on February 14, 2010

So true ...

I was sitting with some friends, chatting over coffee and knitting, when the conversation turned to cooking.  I don’t like cooking.  Lots of effort to cook something that takes 5 minutes to eat.  It just doesn’t seem to be a good use of time.  I detailed how I hate to touch raw meat and I shiver in the presence of sharp knives.  Especially big ones.

There is nothing in my childhood, or adult years, to explain it.  I never fell into a vat of raw meat.  I never cut myself on a knife.

I really don’t like knives.  If you want to scare me, pull out a knife.  Only got a gun?  Meh.  I’ll wander off and make some tea.

Anywho, I digress …

Oddly fascinating

Posted by episode81 on February 6, 2010


Recently, I have noticed an odd thing – people don’t remove the “keeper stitch” on jacket vents.  You know the one – like a big X at the bottom of a vent on the lower edge of the back of a jacket.  It is placed there by the manufacturer to keep the vent flap from curling while on display.  Similarly, the pockets on the front of jackets (and some trousers) are stitched closed to stop them drooping.  I leave those in – jackets and pants look better with closed pockets.  Enough of my own stuff droops without any help from my pockets.
