Human Cookie Sprinkles

Pulled from the tastier version of Watchmen that didn't quite make it in the comic and film world...

And it wouldn't count as baking without the obligatory skull cookie.

Watch Case Bracelet

I've always loved and collected watch insides, and over time I've also amassed a few cases, some quite beautiful. For lack of anything better to do with them, I made them into a bracelet.

Ada Lovelace Day Part II: Someone is Leaving Out Information on the Internet

The Wicked Teacher of the West may do me a great honor, but leaves out some important details of her story. Naturally, I am righteously outraged: someone is wrong on the internet! Well, leaving out important details on the internet, at least. So, in the traditional and time honored way, I am writing a pithy but searing rebuttal!

What her post leaves out is that she, as my middle school computer science teacher, was the one who piqued my interest in computer science. I am immensely indebted to her for not only providing the opportunity of making Lord of The Rings digital madlibs in perl (ah, the obsessions of my youth), but for encouraging and providing countless opportunities for me to do more than just my classwork. A large percent of the Things I've Done she mentions were made possible by her.

So how's that for a smackdown, huh? I think I have a beautiful future ahead of me in blog flame wars.

And by the way, thanks for being my tech heroine.

Space Earrings

They go with my dress made from an extra-extra-large Cylon shirt.

From my turning-everything-I-find-into-earrings phase, the cephaloearrings.

In a hollywood heist style move, I turned one of the earrings into a necklace and wore it to my high school graduation, in clear violation of the rules. It was pretty epic, I had to hide it in my robes and get it through the full pat down and inspection.

So goes my life of crime.

Pie for Pi Day

Strawberry rhubarb is the path of truth.
Also, of delicious.

Happy pi day!

Try and use $0.84 when you spend money today.

Also, I am very impressed by the girl who set the new pi reciting record at my former middle school's pi day celebration. Not only is getting 256 digits totally awesome, but it is also 2^8. If this were an adventure film, this would be a vital hint. I think it is fair to say that my middle school is way cooler than your middle school. Another girl did 50 digits in Spanish.

I think a school is doing something right when Pi Day is a bigger deal than Christmas.

Sierpinski Triangles!

Introducing my newest idée fixe: The Sierpinski Triangle!

Starting with....

....a sierpinski journal entry
written during math class, fittingly enough, although we weren't talking about anything terribly related, and none of the writing has much to do with math...

Chartreuse is a Shade of Red

It is time to clear up the issue around chartreuse. It's a reddish color.

That is all that I have to say.

(actually, it couldn't hurt to point out that it's.... finals time! so posting will hit a lull)
