Gregory Peck (who of course played Atticus Finch in To Kill a Mockingbird) has died at the age of 87.

Knitting away on the little Haiku sweater. At the moment -- just starting across the back -- it looks like an oddly shaped dishcloth. So far, so good.

At work today I came across a lengthy list of palindromes. Sure, we all know the basic ones (Wonton? Not now.), but there are some truly amazing ones out there. There must be a computer program that comes up with these; how could a person figure them out from scratch? Here are some of my favourites:

  • Do geese see God?
  • Yawn! Madonna fan? No damn way!
  • I, madam, I made radio. So I dared! Am I mad? Am I?
  • party boobytrap [I just like the ring of that one -- should be the name of a band, don't you think?]
  • Revenge, Bill? I won! Will I beg? Never! [My partner's name is Bill. I may have to use that one at a future Scrabble match.]
