Word of the day: desuetude.

Song line of the day: I'm a penny in a diamond mine.

Now you go.

I am having the kind of day where I yell and swear at my work computer a lot. (It is very confusing to my cats.)

I would really *like* to think that 5 yards of fabric would be enough to make a simple bodice and some kind of overskirt, but I fear this may be wishful thinking. (Ditto for hoping that 5 plus 4 yards would be enough for a bodice, skirt, and overskirt.)

How long should I wait for the acupuncturist to call me back, before deciding to make an appointment with someone else? Or should I call again...

There was something else but now I can't remember it. I will post this now and then it will come to me...

or possibly several weeks old, and I just haven't gotten around to posting it.

Pictures of earthquake rubble are disturbing. But when I hear that a city moved 10 feet, I still think that's kind of cool.

A rather nicely done infographic on facebook privacy (others have apparently already commented that the heading should be "devolution" rather than "evolution").

A rather splendid little article related to the then-upcoming British election, by J.K Rowling, whom one cannot help but like enormously, despite feeling inadequate for not oneself having any ideas that are likely to lead to a bestselling series of novels, movies, action figures, et cetera et cetera.

Therefore, a collection of random linkies:

In case you feel the need for a little rube goldberg.

On my way to remembering the phrase "rube goldberg machine", I came across this dictionary with word-network-mappy goodness. I'm generally sceptical about the utility of this kind of viz, but it's fun to play with.

I <3 this rather macabre series of paintings: freak parade. Especially love the way each connects to the next...

I'm not usually that excited about Legos, but this post-apocalyptic eco-punk crawler town is pretty cool.

Rest your eyes on some rather splendid nature photos.

OK, so I took the day off work in order to stave off panic about holiday preparations (or lack thereof). But that doesn't mean I can't waste a little time )

Happy Sign o' the Beast Day, happy election day, happy Birthday Eve to [livejournal.com profile] podle, and happy anything or nothing to one and all!
