Yeah, I'm down under -- about half way through with our trip -- and while Clark is off running the City to Surf (half) marathon I'm using his computer to catch up on LJ. (Internet is not included and is way expensive, so we bought a prepaid Virgin Mobile dongle... which fortunately works on the windows side of his computer).
Anyhow, I just saw THIS
An extremely talented friend of mine does some amazing things with glass. I bought a pen from her a while back -- LOVE it -- and I think I'll need to buy some of these knitting needles once I'm back in the states.
