Tweets for July 1st to July 15th

  • There should be a phrase for accidentally casting on 381 stitches instead of the 331 you need, and I think it’s "absent-minded dork".
  • Graduated Redneck 101: bought fireworks & shot beer cans with a .22 handgun. Awesome 4th of July!
  • "I went and shot the maximum the game laws would allow, two game wardens, seven hunters, and a cow." Tom Lehrer, the Hunting Song
  • Odd series of license plates in St Louis, keep expecting to see ’33AC21′ drive past. Half tempted to get it myself for the old lecture room.
  • Why don’t road traffic maps mention dead skunks so you can plan your route to avoid the stink? I-64 W past Maryville reeks this morning.


  1. I really like your blog and your knitting…but I am a knitter married to a game warden who is a wonderful man trying to support a family and to say I don’t find the song very funny is an understatement.

  2. You know they renumbered all the floors right? Instead of the bizarre but logical system, each floor is now numbered for it’s location within the building, so you can go from level 1-4 without going up or down any stairs.

    First lecture in 33AC04 was fun – I took a punt on it being 33AC21 and was amused to see the lecturer walk past one way, back the other way, back again, each time collecting more bemused students. Apparently they went down to the ground floor to see if a basement had been added.

    Didn’t help that they renumbered the floors without changing the room plaques.
