Woollie Wonders

I got a knitted sheep for Christmas - most knitters seem to like all things sheep. This one is fun and even better you can buy a kit to knit your own...

My Baboo Sheep


Been enjoying the proliferation of all things Lady Gaga - ok well, all things that are takes on Lady Gaga - from scientists to librarians. Perhaps the Zheng Lab from Baylor Medical College"s "Bad Project" version of "Bad*Romance" that has had almost 1000000 views in 5 days, will only be funny if you know scientists, but if anyone can make the line "Blot, Blot Western Baby, Figure 1 will be amazing" funny then they have it in my book. But the lyrics are very clever and all my scientists friends say they can relate to the sentiments.



Or check out the librarians from Washington University's version of Poker Face - that too has some pretty cool lyrics.

Love your sheep, and interesting to read about your trip to London too. V&A is my all time favorite gallery, and I've also been to the John Soane museum too.
Thanks for your comment on my blog and the good wishes!
