Synthetic Blood Soon to be a Real Thing?

Researchers are hoping to create the synthetic blood using stem cells from O-Negative blood donors.

And thanks to Marc for sending me interesting links!

True Blood In New Zealand...

Forgive me for being so absent these days. I have no time for anything any more. How many people want to join me in winning the lottery and quitting our day jobs?


Geekologie has a great post with pictures from New Zealand's True Blood poster campaign and it's pretty awesome:

How cool is that? You can actually break off the stakes.

For old time's sake, and because it's Friday...

You can't get much better than that. David Boreanaz - my first celeb obsession. If I didn't have any pride or self-esteem at all I would show you a picture of me in middle school posing in front of my wall (yes a whole bedroom wall) dedicated to the shrine that was David Boreanaz. I literally had hundreds of pictures I scoured from any source I could find... ah the good'ol days.

Apparently I have been in the dark this week, because Vampire Wire and guest blogger Amanda Ashby were enjoying a Naked David Boreanaz week and the importance of said nude male. Here is an excerpt from the conclusion of Naked David Boreanaz Week:

Naked David Boreanaz symbolizes our aspirations and dreams, our hopes and fears, and our humanity. NDB is fluffy kittens and hugs, and it's also dark and dangerous. Sometimes it's Angel, and sometimes it's Angelus, but it's always fantabulous.Naked David Boreanaz is an ideal, the standard by which all others are measured. Sure, some fail miserably, but then there are those moments of dazzling, sparkly Naked David Boreanaz in all our lives.

Photo Pendants

I've been busy this weekend making photo pendants - all from my own photos. Here are some I have posted on my Etsy for 3.95:

Graveyard Pendants:

Keys and Old books:

Red Flowers:

Oak Tree:

I also did a True Blood one for me - double-sided with Eric on one side and the True Blood TV Poster on the other. I made my mom a double-sided one as well, with pictures of me and my brother.

I do custom orders if anyone is interested.

More to come! Next scrabble tile pendants!
