Episodes One-hundred twenty-two and One-hundred twenty-three

Some fun for you!

A Death Clock! Whoopie! (I've got some time, so we'll finish a few more books...) And check this out! A NYTimes article aggregator! I love this thing. I never close it! And for a hoot--check out friend Haynes' new venture (hint...he's an actor...). And for those of you frustrated with the economy--a little financial...can I call it levity? I don't think so...maybe 4-th Wall Realism is better. Here. And here.

Jennie the Potter has done it again--if you missed it on Knitty, get it here! I'll be reviewing these for Knitty shortly! Whoo hoo! And spinning is (once again) singing it's siren song to me. (Ask me how long I spindled last night). Brookmoore Creations Etsy store coming shortly.

My novel only has three chapters left--I'm so excited...except that they're the hardest chapters. ¿C'est la guerre, non?

The Scarlet Letter coming last week of March, so mark your calendars! If you have early chapters to record, send 'em on!

One of my former (read 9/11 evacuee knitting students) is now teaching herself and is trying to start a knitting group for the troubled children she's working with. She is not a registered 501(c)3 so there would be no tax write-off for helping, but of course, Karma's always good. Please contact me if you would like to send her knitting or crochet materials. ANY cast-offs are a boon. I recall that we received half-finished sweaters, ball-ends from projects, mismatched needles, and such. It's all helpful when working with kids.


  1. OK I listened to the last chapter tonight. When you said you thought that perhaps Stevenson was trying to make the point that trying to just repress and get rid of your evil side is not going to work - I thought maybe he was trying to say the opposite, that once you let evil 'get its head', it won't rest until it takes you over. Once Hyde was allowed to run wild, there was no putting the genie back in the bottle. As long as Jekyll's less desirable attributes were kept contained, they could be limited. Just a thought...

  2. In response to the analyses of Hyde's relatively small stature, I have an anthropologist's take on the matter. Descriptions of Hyde make my think of the Victorian views on so-called "primitive" peoples who were thought to be closer to our animal relatives and more ruled by their impulses than "civilized" people. I always picture Hyde looking just a little too compact and ape-like to fit in. From this angle, Hyde's small size represents the awesome power of the human dark side - it shows that we are really not all that far removed from or our primate cousins.

  3. Haynes is so funny! Thanks for the link. And thanks for keeping these archives going, I'm working my way through old shows. I love hearing your voice every few days, and I love that you make me think! Your lurking friend, Alix
