Will and Kate are honestly the cutest
Aw, coke, no.
how do people have relationship after relationship like i can’t find a single person to find me remotely attractive for a solid second
Just bought some tea from Adagio. I’ve been wanting to try matcha for awhile, and theirs has some really good reviews. I’ve ordered from them before and not been disappointed, so it’s a good bet.
They have a sample size for $12, so I ordered that and also a sample of Earl Grey Green because why not. Then I got a free sample of White Peony for posting about my order on facebook and bugging my friends, lol.
I followed this pattern, and used Caron Simply Soft in Sunset. Actually, I cannibalized this yarn from an infinity scarf I’d made last year.
The scarf came out nice, but didn’t really work for keeping my neck warm as it hung a bit too low for that. And wrapping it around enough to keep my neck warm made it too tight. So I took it apart and made this instead!
The cowl covers my neck, and is loose enough that it doesn’t choke me.
The pattern calls for 32 rounds (and a heavier weight yarn than what I used) but I only did 27 rounds, because that’s how much yarn I had. I also flipped it inside out, because I liked the way the back looked over how the front looked.
The buttons are purely decorative. But pretty.
this is why the world is beautiful, maybe its just me but i find this cool as fuck

Tweenbots by Kacie Kinzer:
Given their extreme vulnerability, the vastness of city space, the dangers posed by traffic, suspicion of terrorism, and the possibility that no one would be interested in helping a lost little robot, I initially conceived the Tweenbots as disposable creatures which were more likely to struggle and die in the city than to reach their destination. Because I built them with minimal technology, I had no way of tracking the Tweenbot’s progress, and so I set out on the first test with a video camera hidden in my purse. I placed the Tweenbot down on the sidewalk, and walked far enough away that I would not be observed as the Tweenbot––a smiling 10-inch tall cardboard missionary––bumped along towards his inevitable fate.
The results were unexpected. Over the course of the following months, throughout numerous missions, the Tweenbots were successful in rolling from their start point to their far-away destination assisted only by strangers. Every time the robot got caught under a park bench, ground futilely against a curb, or became trapped in a pothole, some passerby would always rescue it and send it toward its goal. Never once was a Tweenbot lost or damaged. Often, people would ignore the instructions to aim the Tweenbot in the “right” direction, if that direction meant sending the robot into a perilous situation. One man turned the robot back in the direction from which it had just come, saying out loud to the Tweenbot, “You can’t go that way, it’s toward the road.”
The Tweenbot’s unexpected presence in the city created an unfolding narrative that spoke not simply to the vastness of city space and to the journey of a human-assisted robot, but also to the power of a simple technological object to create a complex network powered by human intelligence and asynchronous interactions. But of more interest to me, was the fact that this ad-hoc crowdsourcing was driven primarily by human empathy for an anthropomorphized object. The journey the Tweenbots take each time they are released in the city becomes a story of people’s willingness to engage with a creature that mirrors human characteristics of vulnerability, of being lost, and of having intention without the means of achieving its goal alone. As each encounter with a helpful pedestrian takes the robot one step closer to attaining it’s destination, the significance of our random discoveries and individual actions accumulates into a story about a vast space made small by an even smaller robot.
Man this is still one of my favorite little social projects/experiments.

The former coworker that I made this baby blanket for had her baby yesterday! A beautiful little boy, 6lbs 15oz, and in almost all the pictures from the hospital that she put on facebook guess what’s wrapped around or draped over that little baby, lol.
I didn’t even notice it at first, because I was looking at the baby, and her and her family, lol.
It’s one thing when someone tells you how much they like/love something you made for them, it’s something else entirely to see them using it. Serious warm fuzzies. :D
Manueluv and I are convinced Agent K is Coulson’s father. Hell, MIB is even owned by Marvel.
