And I totally love Pharyngula for knowing and for sharing. (Go there to see how octopus beaks work. You know you want to.)

    I don’t know why I find the idea that those are YOUR fingers to be vaguely ooky, but I do…

    I wish they were my fingers! But alas, they belong to someone named Karl.
    Ah! I see that the “here” link is broken. Let me fix that.

    I’m a former librarian, do you think that ring will “allow me” (and I’m not quite much any more, either. Your interests seem broad and somewhat revolting. I like it. Congratulations on answering a “real” reference questions. I moved on from giving answers to asking better questions… (I’m now a marriage and family therapist). Hope the ribbing goes fast.

    Dana – I tried to go to your blog, but I got a page not found error. The librarian knitter ring says “Library students and currently inactive professionals are also welcome to join the ring.” But it also says “You must have a personal web site with a focus on librarianship (and its permutations) and knitting, but it can be 90% knitting/10% library stuff, or any other balance of the two as long as both are represented in some way.” Here’s the page if you want to give it a try –
    Thanks for the congrats and well wishes.
