    A woman living in China’s Shandong Province got a bit of a surprise recently when doctors at the Chinese PLA General Hospital told her that her brain was missing one of the most important centers for motor control: the cerebellum. She had initially checked herself into the hospital because of a bad case of dizziness and nausea.

    Her diagnosis helped explain some of the challenges she had experienced through the course of her life, including slurred speech, delayed onset of walking until the age of seven and troubles with maintaining balance her entire life.

    Well there’s your problem

     
  2. With all the 911 talk it seems appropriate to remember Flight 93. There is an excellent movie of the same name covering the story which was written with the help of the families. This link is to a folk song giving a summary of what happened.

    I got to “Dad” and had to scroll down and reblog for a break because I laughed so hard I nearly threw up twice.

    The Mysterious Lives Of Cats Captured In Black And White Photography

    Today, August 8th, is International Cat Day, and we just couldn’t let the opportunity pass without mentioning it. Every day is cat day on the Internet, so we decided that we’d bring a bit of class back to the cat pic with a list of mysterious and classy black and white cat photos.

Look at your school of witchcraft and wizardry. Now look at mine. Now yours. Now back to mine. Sadly, your school is not mine, but if you all got off your broomsticks and started using a real sorcerer’s deodorant, it could smell like mine. Abracadabra! I’m a horse.

    I decided to look up stitches because I knew there were fun ways to add texture and I didn’t want to just outline everything. These flowers were made using what’s called a french knot. I’d link you to a tutorial but if you Google it you’ll find 20 easily. It’s a pretty simple stitch. 
I ended up with more flowers in this bunch than I had planned but I just kept adding them until it looked correct. This is one of my favorite bits of this project right now. I think it’s a good little bit of detail.

    I haven’t had an update on the embroidery for awhile because I was working on the green squiggly bits. While I’m happy with how they came out, they weren’t really worth photographing on their own. They don’t even look that great now but they’re a good framework for supporting the other parts. 
I learned a couple new stitches and I like how the little pink flowers came out. Except for on the first flower I did, I used a pistil stitch for the center bits (which is just a variation of the french knot)
The grapes have some subtle shading which ended up more subtle than I intended. I wasn’t thrilled with how the wheat was turning out when looking at it in person. However, seeing it here I think the center accent is doing it’s job nicely. 
The more I get done, the more daunting the entire project becomes. But someday it’ll be done and I’ll go headfirst into something else crazy. In the meantime I have about 4 other projects to keep me distracted when this becomes too frustrating. Oh, and there’s the stuff I should be doing, like med school applications, but whatever.
