The Omnipresence of Lewis Carroll

27 Nov

I don’t know how often it is that I literally gasp, but goodness Imbrium!


Shawn can vouch for me. I gasped. Time slowed. I was in awe. The yarn is of course lovely and I’m totally going to use it to make myself a pair of socks. I hear wonderful things about Cascade Fixation and the colorway is perfect, but do you see that book? I was so mesmerized I couldn’t be bothered to take a decent yarn photo at all. This book is stunning! So Lewis Carroll #1 – O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay! This has absolutely moved to the #1 spot on my reading list.

B loves her toy too!


I have 2 other celebratory things to share.

Shawn and I passed our Wing Tsun test into Student Grade 1 today! Go Team!

Lastly, I am particularly proud of myself for figuring out how to have the RSS feeds from my various tags display properly in the wiki at work, despite the wiki trying to thwart me by not allowing my javascript or supporting RSS 1.0 (which is what uses). Yahoo! Pipes saved the day.

Now if I could just share that bit of joy with someone who wouldn’t look at me like I’m reciting bits from Jabberwocky

    Chuchill47 and Emily – It is so wonderful! I hope you do get it.
    Cass – 🙂
    Steven – Sent you an email with a link, but basically yahoopipes acts as an rss converter and puts it into something the wiki can read. I know pipes can do a lot more, but I haven’t played with it much yet.

    Excellent! I can’t even recall now where I saw that book mentioned for the first time – Slashdot, maybe? – but I knew I had to get it for you. I’m so glad you like it!
