This sounds like a super fun idea! I've been trying to get past some writer's block and this is totally inspirational!

Would your partner send you the design they want as well? I'd be nervous of trying to follow a pattern someone else chose due to my somewhat shaky embroidery skills.

Sounds good to me. Wouldn't necessarily need to be Nano-specific. Encouragement to write all the time is welcome!

Do you know what I hate the most about our current situation politically?  Even tho' I know darn well that I should be focusing on policy issues, I can't help getting upset about all the undignified tweets our so-called Commander-in-chief keeps spewing from the White House bathroom at all hours of the night.  How his supporters can keep defending his bile is beyond me!  Argh!  So frustrating.  We really need to keep calling our local representatives and let them know of our resistance to Drumpf's policies, be they healthcare related, environmental, immigration or one of the many, many other issues that are so important.  Let's make sure they know what our future votes will depend on!!!!!!  I keep reading about how the right wing has been manning the phones incessantly lately and I hate the thought that liberals have become so complacent (which I'll admit to being guilty of sometimes since I live in a very liberal state!).  Call!  Write!  Petition!  <Sorry, once I get started, I just jump onto pulpits and have a hard time shutting up.  I'll calm down a bit now.>

I've been wondering if the tweets aren't the most brilliant distraction tactic ever. Everyone is so busy reacting to another idiotic tweet from the White House toilet that they aren't paying attention to what's actually being done. (Which may or may not be nothing.)

i looked at the Craftster Scouts list of badges. Turns out you can't get them all. One of them is impossible: Knitting in an Inappropriate Place.

That place doesn't exist. Therefore, achieving it is impossible.  Wink

I attended Pride in Toronto this weekend, and participated in a research study while I was there. Science students from the University of Michigan were scanning people's hands and taking saliva samples for genetic evaluation. From what they said, someone's natural sexual orientation can be determined by the relationship between the lengths of their first and ring finger (or so they were trying to prove). There was a questionnaire to fill out as well, which was a bit tricky. Things about how many cousins of each gender there are on both the maternal and paternal side of the family, what orientation those people are, etc. One of my uncles had 12 kids and if any of them were queer, they certainly weren't going to be out!

Interesting for this group- apparently there's also a connection between orientation/gender identity and creativity/"flexible working intelligence" (whatever that means!).

For those who were wondering: in women, if your ring finger is longer than your first finger you are more likely to be gay, have a predisposition towards traditionally "masculine" interests such as working with your hands and sadly (literally) towards depression/anxiety disorders.

All of this lead me to wonder if this research would lend credence to the argument (for the icky kind of fundy christians) that if there's a genetic basis for queer identity/expression and it's intrinsic rather than learned, then God made them that way for a reason. Which is to say, gay is part of the Plan and you have no right to persecute people for being a different part of god's plan than you!

I'd be down for it, as long as it's open after I come back from my road trip.  So, after May 1st Smiley

Ooh, road trips are great! Where are you going?
