It’s late and I’m listening to This American Life. Being a geek, I’ve naturally been drawn to Episode 178, “Superpowers”. The first act is presented by John Hodgman and it’s thoughtful. If you don’t know who John Hodgman is, you’re either not a geek or just don’t pay enough attention. You don’t have to pay attention of course. I usually don’t but I’m predisposed by my GeekNA to be attracted to such nerd-bait.

I’ve spent much of the day reading and practicing my hooking skills. Sounds provocative, I know, but I really mean I’ve been crocheting. I’m about to embark on creating my first wearable piece of crochet; the Cthulhu Beard Hat by Nicole Verville. It satisfies my geek cravings and my gothic underpinnings. If I find Fortune’s favour and get back to work soon then the hat will be warm and practical during those cold Alberta winters.
