On Tuesday I saw a deer pooping in the woods. It was squatting, and it made me wonder why some four-legged animals squat while pooping, and why others just poop standing up, like they don’t even know what’s going on with their ass-end. (I’m looking at you, horses and elephants!) Do they perhaps not have nerve endings back there to tell them something is being ejected from their body? Do they seriously just not care that smelly feces are dropping from their butts and possibly leaving stuff behind on their legs in the process? Inquiring minds need to know, dammit!

Bowl Day!

It’s Puppy Bowl Day!

Sadly I don’t have cable, so I have to wait for Puppy Bowl and Kitten Halftime Show to go online before I can enjoy cute balls of fluff running around like miniature lunatics, but still–Puppy Bowl Day!

Right now I’m trying to decide if I’m going to the yarn sale at Unwind. Do I really need yarn? Possibly. Will I find yarn I like there? Unknown. I’m a little off on natural fiber yarns at the moment, given that the alpaca sampler blanket I’d made for my mom (and took back after she died) now has three ginormous moth holes in it. Fuckin’ moths. But it might still be worth it to head over there and see what kind of quality synthetics they might have. I still have to make something for my two 2011 pay-it-forwards—a little meme that was on Facebook in January, offering homemade gifts to five people who agreed to do the same for five people. Of course, only two were willing to commit to paying it forward, but that works for me, since I like making stuff for other people. I just have to decide what I’m going to make, and perhaps a yarn sale is exactly the place to shop for ideas.

I still plan to be back in time for the Superbowl commercials, though.
