I has one of these: Bamboo Sister interchangeable circular needle set (scroll down to the very last item). Bought used, with caveat of "wiggly join" on one cable. Wiggly join wiggled itself free the first time I tried to use it. So! I have emailed Plymouth, and within an hour received a reply saying they will quite happily replace the cord for me for free. Joy.

Now if only the set had end caps and cord-to-cord joiners, it would be a Thing of True Beauty. I adore the bamboo needles; they are silky smooth and warm.

I has finished a hat commission! Still need to take pics, though. Also, have finished two top Sekrit Gifts, bwahahaha. Did I mention I love knitting in the round? Yeah. I do. And 5" dpns are on my list of best. things. evah. ^_^

Apparently the "restrict" label on condos when it comes to pets is this: you must be able to carry your pet through the common areas. Let's see. Theoretically, you could carry a 40lb dog, yes? yes. The vet tech does it. Not, though, if you a) have a back problem or b) have a dog that squirms like a mad squirming thing. Which means, oh hay, you are discriminating against people with disabilities. Bet you don't wanna fight that one, do you, condo Corp?

So. There's this black hole of information where condo "laws" intersect with the Landlord and Tenant Act. The Act says any "no pets" clause in a lease is automatically void. But condos have things like boards of directors and make their own little enclave rules like... gee, have a sleeve dog or no dog at all.

And let's not get into the argument about small dogs = messier and more energetic than larger, sedate dogs, either. >.>

Oh, Japan. Never change. "Bandai has created the tuttuki bako (poking box)"

It's taken more than a century, but Einstein's celebrated formula e=mc2 has finally been corroborated, thanks to a heroic computational effort by French, German and Hungarian physicists.

ETA: OH OH! I forgot an important bit! from Very Short List: Beatles mystery sound solved with the user of a Fourier Transform!. Yes, yes, I am a geek. BUT! I HAVE DONE FOURIER TRANSFORMS! (years ago, now, in college) THEY ARE BRAIN BREAKY! but also cool. Digital signal processing was one of my favourite courses.
