You can see part of Osprey's post behind my finners, which I held up as I read that MEN, but not WOMEN, have the index finger shorter than the ring finger, and that this short index indicates high testosterone levels and aggressive tendencies *begins to show fangs*. Perhaps that is why I tend to kill at Combat Cards? You can read the post here, but beware of looking at your hands lest you find out you are gender corn fused in the fingers department!
In an unaccountable and long-lived spasm of domesticity I made the entire Thanksgiving dinner myself, asking my fambly to bring nothing but any drinks they would prefer over those we usually have on hand (milk, fat-free milk, water, juice, tea and diet cola). This is a shot of the cranberries before I morphed them into a very delicious sauce for the dinner. I made so much of this crap I gave away what seemed like gallons of the stuff. To those of us with a taste for the sweet, it was delish. For Osprey, I think it would have tasted abominable. See her post on raw cranberry consumption here.

The Movie "I, Worst of All" portrays the life of Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz. I watched it a couple of months ago, I think. Then, this past Wednesday, Sor Juana just came into my mind for no particular reason. I did a search on her and found her biography. I was reading it, when it occurred to me to wonder what her birthdate was. Lo and behold, it was the 12th of November! I was amazed that I happened to look her up on her birthday.
