OAnd my six year old looks up at it, and while his siblings were wondering aloud what it was, he turns to me and says "All hail! All hail the glow cloud!" and I thought my proud geeky mummy heart would just burst.
That is totally awesome!
Okay, I've started work on one of my projects and it's going to need some adjusting. No big deal there. I've done prep work for another, the third I hope to start work on while on a trip to Illinois I'll be taking from Friday to Monday. Right now I'm attempting to get all of this weeks homework (2 week course) out of the way so I'll have Wednesday and Thursday free for projects one and two.
Just three more discussion sections and 3 more short tests to go! So far so good for being on track.
Special thanks is going out to KBrison (my mother) for agreeing to serve as my editor which saves me some time.
I've heard all but the most recent episode, but now I think I need to go listen to it! Feel free to chat with me about it tomorrow though. I love to talk all things Nightvale. (Heck, I love to get my geek on!)
Well, I know I'm not in the swap, but sharing some of the love. :-)
Character I think I most resemble: Susan Sto Helit - I'm usually calm, collected, logical, but open to the idea that we adults don't always know what's *really* going on.
Anti me would likely be Rincewind. I love him, but I refuse to live in constant fear.
Favorite Character and book.... I think this would be impossible. I have so many I love for such different reasons, Vimes, Vetinari, Granny Weatherwax and Nanny Ogg, Tiffany Aching, the Wee Free Men, The Chancellor, Cheery, The Luggage, DEATH! The list could go on and on. As for the book "Good Omens" (I own 5+ copies of this book, just in case I meet someone who's never read it so I can give it to them), "Small Gods", "Equal Rites", "Going Postal", "Raising Steam", "THUD!", again, the list can go on and on.
This man and his writings totally bring out my Geek. I could talk about the worlds and characters he's created for hours and not be tired of the discussion. I also can't tell you just how many times in college I would be sick to death of reading, couldn't stand the sight of another book, but I'd still pick up the latest Discworld novel I had gotten my hands on and read until the wee hours of the morning, only to have to drag myself to class the next day as though I had been out partying all night. Never once did I regret staying up to read the book though.

As for getting it to grow longer... I found that putting something on the television that would allow me to knit without thinking was the best way for me to knit the scarf. After an hour or so of knitting without worrying about rows I could finally start to see progress.
So, my boyfriend is from Arizona but now he's living in Oklahoma. That means sometimes it gets really cold here, and he's just not adapted for our winters at all. Since I took up knitting last year about this time, I offered in the fall to make him a scarf if he was interested. He accepted my offer so I let him pick out the yard I'd use and I got to work on his special request for an extra long scarf. Below is the result.
