Friday! But not my last day of work this week...

So this is the first day this week that I don't have to head into work before 8 a.m.

Not a complaint, really. My editor gets in at about 5 every morning. More of an observation of how strange life can be. So... um... I'm going to post some links. At least one of them is not something you should read if you are feeling grief and despair at the current situation in the United States.

Ok, I'm going to leave that particular link until last. In the meantime, I'm going to be a little more lighthearted.

So, this kind of makes me want to try knitting again. I was pretty miserable at it, I think this project is well beyond my foreseeable capacity.
