Currently Knitting: Butterfly Mittens. I figured what I wanted to do with the pattern-I even did a gauge swatch up for a number of different options!  But while doing the gauge swatch, I kind of. . . forgot to check my gauge.  Starting over with 40 stitches instead of 44. . . 

Currently Reading: Still working on Perdido Street Station. I’m starting to realize that reading long passages on fake esoteric philosophy of science theories might require more concentration than I have when I’m on the elliptical.  Perhaps I should try reading those while sitting down.

Currently Watching on Netflix: Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow. Rayguns! Jetpacks! Sky Pirate Angelina Jolie! I can’t say I’m too fond of Polly, but it’s an awesome little bit of fluff.

Currently Open in Other Tabs:  Anomie, a Sherlock vid.

Also on the Sherlock angle: John and Sherlock Make a Baby (From Stuff they Find Around the Flat)  Yes, it's technically kidfic.  It's still good!

Night of the Living Trekkies: Three different people have linked me to this book trailer. Do you think they’re trying to tell me something?

The Newest Hyperbole and a Half: I know, I know, but this one literally had me wheezing with laughter!

The Complete Brioche Website: I’m trying to decide if I want my next large project (you know, after I finish the mittens, a pair of socks, maybe a beard balaclava and probably some Christmas presents) to be a 2-color brioche blanket or the brioche sweater. I know the sensible answer is ‘neither, are you crazy?’ . . . but it’s so tempting. . .

I can't believe it's taken me a week to get an episode reaction post up . . . work's been kicking my ass lately, working six days, 50-60 hour weeks.  

And then I went and spent a sizable chunk of my overtime pay on comic books and ice cream, like a sensible adult. 

So:  Episode Reactions!  Right!  Spoilery bits separated by seed art, because what else am I going to do with pictures of seed art?

Merlin (Spoilers for 3x01 and 3x02) )


Ex Machina (Trade Paperback Vols. 4 and 5) )


Mad Men (Spoilers for The Summer Man) )

. . . and now it's time for me to download the next episode.

What I learned from this film:
1.  Living with your abusive rapist of a husband and his lover is totally a happy ending, because you get to still have contact with your children (except for the one, but it’s a bastard, so it doesn’t count).

2.  A corollary to number 1: sleeping with your best friend’s abusive rapist of a husband is totally ok, if you do it for the children.

3.  It’s not a lesbian makeout scene if one of them is thinking about a guy. Or, I guess, if you’re doing it for the children.

It’s been a hard, hellish week. Therefore, there was Troll 2.

Yes, this film:


You might think that this is the lulziest part of the film. You might even hope that this is the case. But you’d be wrong-so, so very wrong.

Think about the cholesterol! )

What I learned from this film:

1. Vegetarians are evil.
2. Stonehenge might be thousands of years old, but it would be destroyed if anybody bothered to touch it (also, a source of evil powers).
3. Corn is evil-but sexy!
4. Green food coloring makes something organic-and evil.
5. You should never leave the suburbs

In conclusion, this was a very educational film and accurate portrayal of America under the Reagan administration.  I think everyone should watch it.
