My women's group has just recently started doing themed dinners - we did Italian this week, we're doing UK next week, then Japanese . . . I know what I'm bringing for UK night!  (Dr. Who is British, right?)

Dad is a Dr. Who fan....I've never gotten into it though.

How much would it freak him out to have some tasty cookies "appear" at his house while he's at work?  >:D  >:D
In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children.  The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted.  The result is unruly children and childish adults.  ~Thomas Szasz

Given that the Weeping Angels are the stuff of creepy nightmares - probably a lot.

I'm not sure whether this proves my nerdhood, or general curiosity, or what. Or maybe both. But it's a fact that I would now like to know whether this is a photoshop, or an existing whacky work of art, and if it does exist, where is it? Anyone any idea?

It isnít a photoshop (aside from the text, of course). It is the front of Bath Abbey (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bath_Abbey)

Huh, looks like the photo is indeed right-side up instead of upside-down like I thought.  Most of the angels in the Wiki article's photo are climbing up, but there is one looking down.  His neck is at a very uncomfortable angle though.

BF and I adopted a cat from the local SPCA last weekend. When we'd made our choice and filled out all the paperwork, we went to get the cat. As I opened the cage to lift him out and put him in the carrier, the cat saw his chance and jumped out between my hands and made a beeline for the large scratching post in the corner. BF (the gamer nerd) piped up, "Wow, that cat's got high dex!"

"Dex" is a nice name...

Haha, it is, actually! Too bad we already named him Seamus.

When there is a Star Trek movie playing in the background that you aren't paying much attention to, the Captain's communicator beeps, and you reach for YOUR cellphone...

(It's my incoming text message beep.)
