Probably something you would like…

by Susan on November 6, 2012

It’s Election Day, y’all. I don’t care who you vote for but I hope you’ll take the time to vote. Don’t waste the opportunity to make your vote heard.


This List of candies from Unlikely Words made me laugh like a madman:

“Also, a special warning. If something is motivating you to give out Raisinets on Halloween, don’t. They are terrible and you are terrible for thinking about it. Just give out raisins or a toothbrush. If you’re going for it, go for it. Raisinets are an attack on Halloween, and that’s fine, just don’t try to mask your intentions. It’s disingenuous.’

I love this illustration by Tutticonfetti.

Holy crap, those ladybugs were awesome!

The ladybugs video is fascinating! I’d be really curious to know how they curl their wings back up. Is there some sort of muscle extending down the length of the wing?

wow, I never realized that ‘underwing’ (my word, not the real word for it I am sure…) was so large! Reminds me of bat wings. Very cool find. I do like lady bugs, I mean, who doesn’t like a beneficial insect? But do know that they do bite. And it hurts… Okay, maybe more of a startle, but they do bite… :-0…

That pistachio cake is so going to my knitting group next time I’m on the snack list.
