P.S. If anyone has two pipe cleaners? Please bring them! I will love you forever and also stop crying over the fact that I can't find mine! :(

And Jen is sick :(
And Amber has minions :(
So, those of you who live/work closer to Dunn Bros are welcome to show up, but right now it looks like at least 50% of the regulars won't be there.

The Anglerfish is mostly mouth, and the parts of its anatomy that aren’t mouth – tissues, organs, fins, and a couple of eyes just for show – exist only to serve the mouth and move the mouth around.
But really you should read the whole thing (and really everything on Animal Review, because they bring the funny and the educational!)
Secondly - WRT traps and the like:
I was apparently wrong about Admiral Ackbar only saying one line, but it is still true that he only said one line that mattered. Here's youtube of the pivotal scene.
This vid gives an example of how the good Admiral has generally been abused in popular internet culture.
Finally, I should point you all towards knowyourmeme.com. It's the place to go when you hear a reference but have no clue what it means. It, combined with urbandictionary.com will help you to become hip to all of the current internet hop, without having to go to very bad places like /b/ (no link, because it is a very bad place).

Amber's latest pattern is up for sale now on Ravelry!
I've heard tell that it might remind some people of a Lego* minifig, but who knows where that crazy lady gets her ideas?
Here's the blurb from the Ravelry pattern page:
Some Assembly Required is a pattern that will enable you to make an adorable toy that can be taken apart and put together again. The head, torso, and legs are independent pieces, so you could make multiple pieces in different colors and they would be interchangeable.
I’ve included a tutorial on boxes and edges so you can make nice crisp corners. The tutorial isn’t necessary to make the toy, but it may be helpful.
This was tech edited by me, and test knit by Honourary Fight Knitter Cathy (Jen's mom)!
Here's the link to buy it:

Which, I'm like "... they are talking about FURRIES wtf" all eyebrow raised as he is discussing with Attractive Female Colleague about Furry Conventon and whatnot but then he said "I am sure they are up to ALL KINDS OF THINGS ifuknowwhutimean" hur hur hur.
And I said :O
Just to make this post on topic... I am sure this is Anderson's way of saying he wants to knit with us on Tuesdays.
(CNN should rerun this in about two hours, don't ask why I know this.)

I have to clean before knitting. My tiny cousin is going to be staying with me for a few days before he goes off to do study abroad. How well do I have to clean for a college student?
Also, remind me to tell the story about one of my (different) cousin's kids taking a chainsaw to the face recently (I'm not even joking).

Plus, it's in 3D.
Since you guys were talking about going to see Coraline in lieu of knitting this week, I looked up some showtimes:
AMC Rosedale: 6:35
Regal Brooklyn Center (not 3D!): 6:45, 9:10
Block E (not 3D!): 6:50, 9:20
Southdale: 6:40, 9:10
MOA (not 3D!): 6:55, 9:15.
Personally, I'm partial to the 6:35 at Rosedale showing -- can you guys make this? (one of you city types will have to give Will a ride).

I don't have internets during the day but I'll be home around 4:00 and can check back here to see if we're still on or what.

- It's Tuesday, which means we'll be knitting, y/y?
- Yarnover is coming up in April, and the deadline for signing up for classes is this week. Amber and I are definitely going, and you should check out the brochure and come with (or at least plan to hit the vendors!)
- Knit-Out at the MOA - Feb 14 and 15. This was fun 2 years ago, and hell last year. I'd be willing to try it if we planned on getting there _early_ (like, 9am since they start at 10).
- BSG is back to being the best show on TV (says the girl who isn't actually watching any other shows on TV right now, but honestly...what could beat that?)

I will bring the yarn on Tuesday!
ETA: Ooooh, this might be perfect. I may just get it!
