Oh my Gaaaaaaaaaaaaawd, I love humans. Last night, I was watching an episode of the PBS documentary "Make 'em Laugh", and they had a great section about "nerds". Did you know that Dr. Seuss invented the nerd? I sad to admit that I didn't. Some comedian or other gave a great definition of nerd as "someone who's unashamed to like what they like". I can totally get behind that. I know I'm a nerd for collecting Buddy Hackett memorabilia, and I don't really care.
The Dr. Who Scarf Website is a towering monument to nerd-dom. The curator of the site delved deep into the history and lore of the Dr. Who scarf, writing a comprehensive history about the design and versions of the famous striped scarf. The website uses screen grabs to document some of the fabulous scarves for the series, then offers patterns and tutorials to help you make your own. You can also buy handmade Dr. Who scarves by the site's proprietor on eBay. I can't tell you how much I love this! Go team!
