Light, Fun, & Geeky.

Okay, I've said I sucked before for the postlessness, but at least now I have a good excuse - For the past month I have been on a plumbing adventure, and now I finally have HEAT! Oh, sweet delicious heat! Not a moment too soon either, daily low temperatures have been brushing the low 30s, sorely testing my recently super-insulated roof (a significant improvement from last winter's completely UNinsulated roof.

At any rate, to celebrate our reintroduction and upgrade to second world living standards, my seven and a half month pregnant wife (a trooper and a schtarker of the first order) and I got the best Thai food on the Eastern Seaboard. While there is still too much to do, I am feeling a hair less overwhelmed.

The fact that a disturbing percentage of my fellow citizens have chosen to elect a lying, fanatic, who will screw us all is also a bit depressing to say the least.

But before we dwell on that - here are some light, fun and geeky links for you all.

First, we have a home "polaroid" holography kit.

and even better, plush toy giant microbes and pathogens.
