(no subject)

Not feeling too well today. I have knee pain, teeth and jaw pain, sinus pain, and general depression about the immediate future. It's like being nibbled to death by ducks. Angry spiny ducks with fangs. Anyway.

Some links:

Sometimes the creepiest things aren't malevolent and grotesque, but cute and sweet... and a recent art exhibit proved it.

Retronaut: World's Oldest Map
The Babylonian World Map, the earliest surviving map of the world (c. 600 BCE), is a symbolic, not a literal representation. It deliberately omits peoples such as the Persians and Egyptians, who were well known to the Babylonians. The area shown is depicted as a circular shape surrounded by water, which fits the religious image of the world in which the Babylonians believed.’

Gah. No angry ducks! No fangs!


These angry ducks sound suspiciously like platypuses. platypi. One of those. Hope you feel better.

Sorry to hear you're doing poorly :( Hope you feel better soon.

The Doctor Who vid is hilarious :)

Thanks :) That is such a great vid, everyone looks like they're having so much fun.

I hope you feel better soon :-)

Sounds like you should put the angry spiny fanged ducks away with the Hallowe'en decorations; they'd fit right in, and maybe you wouldn't see them again all year.

I should do that. :) I've been putting away decorations for three days now.

My arthritic shoulder sends its sympathies...

Hang in there ;o)

Thanks, and I hope your shoulder feels better, too. I think we're just getting into achey joint weather season.

Hope you feel better, Martha.


I hope you feel better soon. Sending you good thoughts and lots of positive energy.

The world's oldest map is pretty darn cool, but my heart belongs to the Dr. Who video. I may have sent other people the link. Thanks!
