Things I Have Noticed Recently

  1. Chaos Theory rules at my house! I love the look of clean and simple, yet can never maintain it. Wait maybe this isn't so much Chaos Theory as much as things tending towards entropy. 
  2.  There are tons of videos about stitching on youtube. Go ahead, try it. Look for embroidery, needlepoint, beads, cross stitch, the name of a particular stitch.  Just be prepared to waste time
  3.  When the neighbor's cat is bumping into your front door trying to get your attention, maybe something is happening outdoors. Yesterday it was a raccoon at 5 p.m. in the sunshine trying to get into the garbage that people continue to leave curbside only in bags, not in garbage cans. I'd say that is one sick raccoon. I was able to safely escort the cat to her house. Raccoon disappeared and didn't come back. 
  4. I will inevitably cut a skein of overdyed silk in the wrong spot. Didn't realize this skein had so much green in it. You would think I would have learned by now.  
  5. That car in front of you driving like a dipsy-doodle will have a driver talking or texting on a cell phone piloting it.
  6. TNNA, The National Needlearts Association is conducting a survey here.
  7.  IF I change anything on blogger, I will have problems.
  8.  The survey is about time and money spent on various needlearts type things. 
  9. That I need to change a color in my layout here, but it's causing blogger to give me an error message and sometimes even Firefox to crash when I try to change it.
  10. I love Jonathan Rhys Meyers as Henry VIII, but they should have done some things to make him look taller. Henry should be towering over most of the other characters. Which leads me to wonder how many of those ladies with nude scenes used body double hairy legs?

Hey- things don't tend towards entropy - it's a rule of thermodynamics that entropy rules and things have a tendency towards disorder, wanting to go to a higher state of entropy (trust me - my desk was an example for this as the 1st lecture on entropy to undergrads in Thermo 301). Your house - basic entropy - you're not really chaotic!!!!

My dictionary widget gives one definition (figurative) of entropy as "lack of order or predictability; gradual decline into disorder." I think chaos theory best describes my house following the visit from the cat from hell, whereby all of my neat stacks are one big jumble. Widget definition: "the branch of mathematics that deals with complex systems whose behavior is highly sensitive to slight changes in conditions, so that small alterations can give rise to strikingly great consequences."
