I picked up my diploma this week. It has nothing to do with yarn, but Arnold Schwarzenegger signed it.
The Terminator signed my physics degree.
It would have been cheaper and caused a lot less stress to get his autograph on the street. But then I wouldn't be a Master. Master of what exactly has yet to be determined.
40 pounds
Meanwhile I'm slowly using my energy turning this (40 pounds of wool)
dyeing day
Into this (hand dyed fiber)
fair yarn
And then into this (Arty Hand spun yarn)
40 Pounds of Wool + Hand dyed fiber = Arty Hand Spun Yarn.
If that isn't Applied Physics, I don't know what is.

    The lengths one will go to obtain an autograph. Shocking.

    It’s all a dye-a-ball-icle plot.

    the idea that The Terminator signed your diploma just tickles me. it’s going to make me smile all weekend.
    The primary use for my Master seems to be to indicate that I have one such degree on miscellaneous surveys. Of course, I changed professions, so that might explain it. Still, it’s a surreal moment every time it happens.
