Kiddo's requested rainbow sweater now looks

Kiddo's requested rainbow sweater now looks both more like a sweater and more like a rainbow after the sleeve divide.

Also, this book is so good. I don't want to spoil the twists but there's Baba Yaga, a wolf, two orphans, a tsar who wants to burn the forest, a lost heir, a taking raven... Normally this is where I get bored of knitting stockinette but the book is keeping it fun.

Just finished number 4 this year:

Very disappointing Open Humanities Press is not included in this entirely serious, entirely scientific rating of the most alluring to be seen carrying as status this year.

Speaking as someone who does base their personality on Uniqlo, thats the problem with being a non-profit publisher of you never get included in stuff like this.

British birds by Thorburn, Archibald -1860-1935-

Book 2 of 2024. Reading this in parallel with a high science book about Kant, Borges, and Heisenberg. It's a weird juxtaposition.

This book has some very funny parts, and some very political parts, and some very ridiculous parts. But all in all, pretty thin.

I bought it because somebody posted the best sentence in it on mastodon. So there you go. That sentence made me laugh out loud.

I via Be Useful: Seven Tools for Life by Arnold Schwarzenegger. I can't remember the 7 tools but I do remember
1) it's included with Spotify Premium & < 15 hr so I listened for .
2) I'd listen to it again just to have his voice put me to sleep. It's the perfect pitch. Accent is bonus.
3) The former governor is stereotypical Gen X (ahead of his time) (see IG's champagnecruz) & he's preaching here.

Die Wlfin biegt den grauen Rcken/ eine Linie, die entzckt / und leckt sich das Blut aus dem grauen Fell/ weiter geht es in der Geschichte, immer weiter gen Norden/ dahin, wo niemand sie schieen noch

Unlikely Angel: The Untold Story of the Atlanta Hostage Hero, by Ashley Smith, My rating:4 out of 5 stars, Read from: 01/24/2024 - 01/25/2024.

Book description: In April 2005, Ashley Smith made headlines around the globe when she miraculously talked her way out of the hands of alleged courthouse killer Brian Nichols after he took her hostage for seven hours in her suburban Atlanta apartment. In this moving, inspirational memoir, the 26-year-old widowed mother of a six-year-old girl shares for the first time the little-known details of her traumatic ordeal, and expands on how her faith and the bestselling book The Purpose-Driven Life helped her survive and bring the killer's murderous rampage to a peaceful end. Just as she told her 6'1", 210-pound captor that his ultimate "purpose" in life was to end up spending the rest of his life in prison, preaching the teachings of Jesus Christ to his fellow inmates, Smith believes her own purpose is to spread that message of love to the rest of us. Juxtaposing the minute-by-minute tale of her experience with the never-before-told tragedies and triumphs of her own life, Unlikely Angel is a gripping tale of downfall and redemption, involving addiction, violence, death, loss, faith, and love. It is a story that will leave no reader untouched.
