Happy Zombies Deserve the Best

I am happy to say this zombie pin (which you can buy on my Etsy site) was featured at !

I have 37 more brains to sell, but most haven’t been posted yet. Please drop me an e-mail if you are interested!

Mad science pins and more to come, if my maniacal machinations work out… first I have to borrow a respirator, and some eye protection…


I ought to have a Christmas post, as I sit at work, basking in the glow of the USB Christmas lights on my desktop tree. But I am busy having a full “very bad” cold, of the sort that makes me uncomfortable to be near anyone in public because I look so awful (red nose, that is. I keep putting hand cream on it, but it still looks frightening – do they make nose-cream?). I even put on my glasses instead of my contact lenses today, so I look strange to myself.  Back to drinking hot fluids and buying Kleenex brand facial tissues and watching the cat gleefully tear up paper for no apparent reason.

Oh yesterday I was excited because I found a 1.3mm lead pencil at Staples. I am easily amused. I also found a Christmas gift I have to hang onto until I can give it next year – we’ll see if I can keep track of it.

Thankfully the cold did not hit until after the Cantata, Teen Christmas party, Church Staff Party,  Women’s Missionary Fellowship party, AWANA party, and was just starting during Carolling but I sang anyway. Tomorrow is the office lunch party, I will be sure to wash my hands.

Utterly Sickening (ACTA Three Strikes, and WAR)

Part I:

I am not 100% an advocate of the EFF, don’t get me wrong. But the ACTA “Three Strikes” idea makes me sick. This proposal would steal our rights to internet content – I don’t mean our rights to illegal internet content, I just mean our rights at all. This proposal would cause an ISP to remove the internet from your house (your ip address) based on anyone merely saying three times that you did something illegal, whether there is any proof that it happened or not. Allowing anyone, let alone ISPs, dispense justice without any defense or trial is severely WRONG.

Part II:

So many women are abused, sold, and trafficked. We need to put a stop to this. It is a quiet fact that gets very little media attention though it is prevalent in so many parts of the world. WAR International (Women At Risk) aims to help these women. Please consider giving a donation.


I don’t know what we can do to stop either of these things, but we shouldn’t just ignore them.
