My New Mascot

Usually, I listen to the Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me podcast because it is hilarious, but this week, I actually found something useful in it. In China, scientists have found a tiny t-rex fossil. CNN article here. It’s like they knew I was working on […]

Off Topic

My final semester of school starts tomorrow. I am simultaneously excited and filled with dread. To put it simply, last semester was NOT GOOD. I was not sleeping enough or eating well. I was at work or doing homework all the time and falling asleep […]

Developments

The fingers on my left hand are teal. One of my kitchen gloves must have a whole in it somewhere. Last night, I dyed the very last of the un-dyed yarn in my apartment. Three bare skeins of bulky wool became three skeins of turquoise […]

What A Tease

My goal to not feel exhausted in this year was put to the test immediately. I came down with a cold, on my birthday, after breaking my glasses. I always have contacts as back-up, but it should be illegal to have to wear contacts while […]

How I Got My Name: A Photo Essay

Not so long ago, I wrote that I chose the name of my business because I am constantly confronted with tiny toy dinosaurs sprinkled throughout my apartment. On Friday, I came across a particularly good example, and I thought I would share. It was stepping […]

Projects

In an attempt to shake off this creeping, odious feeling that the University of Kansas is going to swallow me whole before May, I thought I might share some of what’s keeping me going. First off, I am wearing really awesome socks right now. You […]

Autumnal Ennui

It is officially fall, even though in Kansas the temperatures are still nearing the 90’s during the day. And believe it or not, I have been working! But probably not as much as I should have. I finished the wedding afghan, did a lot of […]
