Ok, The post was originally all about cushions but look! It’s the 25th anniversary of Hubble! Here’s an awesome article about how much we’ve learned about our universe thanks to Hubble. A great Hubble pic that was also on Slashdot a while ago:
Now, on to regularly scheduled programming (I schedule all my posts the night before so The Hero has a fresh post to read for lunch everyday :-))
The Hero and I have finally decided that a larger space in the suburbs is better than a matchbox in the city. Did you know music teachers mostly teach via Skype these days (head shake) and since we found a non-international school nearby, we decided to go for it.
Now that we’re thinking about decorating our new place, here’s a thought that keeps popping up. Why do we need cushions? Ok, no, the question doesn’t keep popping up. I wanted to make something up so I could post this clip here… Have you watched Coupling? You should, if you can.
On the Slashdot front, I got a virtual kissie from my husband for sharing this story about other
weirdos geeks like him who run Linux on a Mac.
On the frivolous front, I discovered this great style blog which has some theories about colours and contrasts as well as the usual makeup picking tips. By discovered, of course, I mean I binge read it one time.
This week’s geeky tidbit: Poe’s Law states that without disclaimers it’s impossible to distinguish a parody of extremism from the real thing. This came up when The Hero and I were debating whether or not the disclaimer was needed on the pimple post.
On the personal front, I’m counting down to my vacation which is starting feb 1st. Yay!
Finally, a rough draft of the illustration for Chotu’s next story. Picture was taken before giving the piece of paper to my coffee-friend at work. Her son loved the story. Yay! I’ll post the story and final illustration here on Monday for my other friends’ kiddos 🙂
