My favorite LYS (local yarn store for the non-knitters) applied for a Mission Main Street grant from Chase. Please consider clicking through and supporting them, they need 250 votes to move on to the next round. Thank you!

I accidentally ordered a men's tshirt from +TeeFury instead of my normal women's shirt. I got the same size - 2XL - that I usually get in women's and the size difference is ridiculous: 7" in width and 7" in length.  I'm sure there's a complaint of sexism in there somewhere - fat shaming (?) by forcing us to order "larger" sizes for smaller shirts?  This women's "2XL" is smaller than the size M shirts I have from Life is Good or the size L shirts I have from shirt.woot.com.  Also, why is teefury charging me +$1 for a "larger" size when my 2XL is probably smaller than a men's L which does not have the surcharge?

Not cool.

Finally met up with TGTSNBN at #theatreworksusa for Percy Jackson & the Lightning Thief the musical. Should be fun!

The LIPA outages map is pretty useless, but the counter on the side that lists the # of affected customers keeps going down and that makes me feel better.  On the other hand, the active outages # is going up. I choose to believe that's a programming error :)

Living Social has a half-price ticket deal for +Maker Faire. If you're in the NYC area and don't have tickets already, do it!  It's really really interesting.

Best. Line. Ever. "By the way, ladies, I have it on good authority that if you take a guy who believes that rape victims can’t get pregnant and punch him in the gonads, it won’t hurt him at all. "

In case you don't read the news: some guy running for Senate in Missouri named Todd Akin is not smarter than a 5th grader with regards to basic biology.
