Fun With Palindromes

From Katherine Jane:

A great site when you need a quick break from the day is Sporcle.com, a site filled with fun and often educational quizzes about a range of subjects, from literature to geography to identifying the characters from The Simpsons.

On August 16th they put up a Palindromic Word Pairs quiz, which is fun in and of itself; but I was delighted to note that the exact opposite of "Perform badly or smell bad" is "Uses needles to make a sweater." This is certainly true from a palindromic perspective, and I'd submit it's true in the real world as well!

Sock Summit 2009

Anyone going to the Sock Summit this weekend should stop by booth 402 and say hello to Kathy! She will be there with a large stack of beautiful audiobooks for sale.

I'm tremendously jealous I can't be there this weekend! I can't wait to hear everyone's reports.
