I have a few links that I like to review because either they make me smile or they make me think. As of late, I noticed that they are piling up, and I should mention them now or else they may become a “stash” pile. In order of alphabetic appearance, I give you:
- Dictionary.com Word of the Day
variegated: having marks or patches of different colors; also, varied.
Figured you guys would chuckle about this one as much as I do!

Chemical in Gardenia Fruit Raises Hopes for Type 2 Diabetes Treatment
Because of my family’s medical history and my FIL’s death, I have become more conscious than ever of my body’s health. My goal is to obtain then maintain a healthier me. With more exercise and changed eating habits, I hope to reach that goal by fall.

Techie Fight Clubs Springing Up
Somehow, I am trying to picture my department of fellow geeks following in Brad Pitt’s shoes. I know we have some martial arts practitioners among us, and there are a couple of SCA fans out in the R&D Engineering section. BUT… I just cannot see someone like Brad’s genre here. Nope… Nada… Except in Sales.
HP To Cut Back On Telecommuting
So maybe this is why my department requires us to be in by 9AM at the latest and out at the earliest at 3PM.

Maybe it helps being a part of a “techie” couple? Hmmm…. Hold for a second while I give my husband a “ping” on AIM to ask his opinion… 😉
Now that I got those links out of my system, you ready for more hooking up? Because I have something to show you.
The most ironic part? I started working on this last night during the ball game. The above shot is from this morning before work. Tonight during “Walk and Knit” at Borders, I actually finished it! I forgot how much I love making these blankets. Interestingly enough, I have one in ruby red and another in sapphire blue for Ryan and Dylan (Rich’s cousin’s sons). The yarn is the luxurious Frog Tree Alpaca and I had to use 3 strands held together for the blue and 4 for the red. Now if we could find the time to give them to the boys!
And I must give you the best news for last. My husband pinged me at work to tell me that a package arrived in the mail. Woo-hoo! My Secret Pal‘s package arrived! I will write up a more detailed post. Promise! Until then, I leave you a teaser. =:8
