Revelation of the day -- a.k.a. who can I blame today?

No matter how many cookies I eat, I still have to write my dissertation.

Reality sucks sometimes.

I wish I were a wizard like Gandolf. I bet he could give the act of "eating cookies" the power to "write a dissertation". I would be finished if I were Gandolf.

I blame my parents.

Why didn't they send me to wizarding school? They only sent me to a stupid magnet school. Darn them and their short sightedness.

This is how I get my stuff done

I now understand why I'm in my 8th year of graduate school. None of my chairs squeak, so now I can get my stuff done.

((Note: sorry for the non-blog blogs. I'm working hard and creating a masterpiece of a dissertation right now. Happy Holidays everyone! Think of me on Christmas morning when I will be hanging out with my cat watching Ghost Hunters!))

This is how I roll

Sometimes you just gotta dole out the attitude to the kids and armchair astronomers. This cartoon is courtesy of my friend and gave me a good chuckle on a particularly difficult day.

Fall/"winter" in T'town

Suddenly Tuscaloosa leaves change color in the fall. It was a shock to me the first time I saw it last year. I thought it was a fluke. Maybe it has something to do with the drought we've been experiencing. I'm not sure, but I sure love fall in T'town these days. Gorgeous. I know these photos don't do the colors justice. I took them with my phone, so they aren't the best quality.

My love of knitted goods

I am a huge fan of Mochimochiland, a website of impressive knitted toys. Mochimochiland's imagination, creativity, and skill blow me away.

I'm including "borrowed" images of Mochimochiland's work. Above is a "sleepy snake and mischevious mouse". Below, you see lemmings falling off a cliff into the sea.
