The Cute and the Gruesome

And now for today's nauseating cuteness it's penguins in sweaters! The Tasmanian Conservation Trust's Penguin Jumpers Project: Has volunteers knitting over 15,000 jumpers (that’s sweaters to us Yanks) to keep the wee ones warm while recuperating from oil spills around Tasmania. Their next project is to keep the Little penguins of Bruny Island from becoming road kill by erecting fences around highways and digging underpasses for the penguins to cross safely. I guess the day glo orange sweaters wouldn’t help with that.

On the other end of the spectrum I started reading Stephen King's Cell this week. It starts out bloody enough, and is getting pretty creepy. The only time I can read undisturbed is at night before bed and this book is not condusive to a good night's sleep. Fortunately I've read enough King to be immune to his wiles. We'll see if this current book holds its water all the way to the end.
