All things ratty

Happy Chinese New Year!

Welcome to the Year of the Rat. I think this woodcut looks suspiciously like a badger, but that's just me.

The forecast, once again, is predicting bone-chilling temps in the Twin Cities (a high of -1F on Sunday) - definitely the kind of weekend to hunker down at home with a good movie, knitting, and cocoa. If you haven't seen it already, give Ratatouille a try. Kidlet became enamored with it when I downloaded the 9-minute preview from iTunes (she watched it incessantly - great for the road trip to Chicago). She received the DVD for Christmas this year, and the ViewMaster Viewer for her birthday. Yup, they still make 'em. :-)

Does it make you feel old when elements of your youth come back as retro reissues?

I'm pretty young, but I feel old all the time at work, because most of the cashiers I manage were born in the nineties and call me ma'am!

This may be a stupid question, but have you announced the winners of the Alphabet contest?
