Sooo I started a non-Tumblr, non-yarny blog about going back to school as an adult student. I don’t want to spam you all with constant post updates from over there, because I know that’s not why you’re following me here, but I thought I’d mention it once here at the outset! If you want to check it out, here’s the link :)

Something had been bothering me since I saw the newest Xmen movie.

Not the plot holes or the cheesiness or Hugh Jackman’ssuperb acting skills.

What bothers me is something that has been bothering me for a long time in movies (although not as long as actors using British accents every time they’re from somewhere foreign - Clash if the Titans, which took place in Greece and so should have had Greek accents and not British ones, I’m looking at you! But I digress). It’s the hairlessness.

At first it was just women. But then all the men started going hairless. Suddenly, Jerry Seinfeld wasn’t so weird anymore. Seeing men with chest hair on TV or in movies became the rarity, not the norm, even though I don’t know a single guy in real life who waxes his chest or back.

But Wolverine?? With the mutton chops and the thick lustrous hair on his head, who used to have at least some chest hair?? To now look like a Mexican hairless dog? When he is WOLVERINE?? The dude should look like Robin Williams, you know what I’m saying?

Please don’t misunderstand this as criticism of Hugh Jackman, as I have happily sat through every one of his movies, even the ones that are arty and three hours long and in which he had weird facial hair. And I still enjoyed the movie, and there were other parts that I thought needed dissecting - this is just the one I chose to dissect today.

What do you think?

I’ve decided to move to Nantucket. #needlepoint #knitting

Seems legit.


You’ve clearly done your research. Plus there’s the beach. What else do you need to know??

Entrelac looks so easy on paper but every time I try it I end up air stabbing with a DPN while scream-cursing like Yosemite Sam. Also this is really pretty.


What she said. Plus, as much as I love pullovers, I just never wear them. I’m more of a cardigan girl. Like I have about 8000 cardigans in my closet, and I have to be forcibly restrained from the cardigan tables at Target, and I have so many cardigan patterns favorited on Rav that I could never make them all, not in a zillion lifetimes.Ooooh, maybe if the entrelac went down the back and the front was open like a … You know …THAT WOULD BE SO PRETTY.
