Because I am apparently not busy enough ...

I got an email from a local yarn shop in which they indicated a group would be meeting weekly there to work on
The Smithsonian Community Reef portion of the Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef project. I've been intrigued by the reef since I first heard about it a few years ago and how could I possibly turn down the opportunity to create something that will be displayed in the Smithsonian? So I went to the group on Tuesday night, crocheted a hyperbolic plane, and enjoyed it immensely. I will, of course, try the other two basic forms before experimenting further. It's a good way to use up bits of yarn, too, especially since cheap acrylic actually works best for this sort of thing.

I also got a request in my email today to review a storytelling fringe show for a journal. The interesting parts are that: a) it was a show I was considering seeing, but did not buy tickets to because my schedule is pretty full and it just missed the top 6 on my priority list and b) the editor of the journal is somebody I know quite well from my Los Angeles days.
