Q: What is all this stuff?
A: Why thanks for asking. I wanted to have a space to offer my science/rationality themed work, and this is it.

Q: yeah but what is it? What is a FSM?
A: to me the FSM is a secret symbol, a chalkmark on a wall. Where you see him, you know there are likeminded folks. The story of the Flying Spaghetti Monster and how he symbolises the fight for the separation of church and state can be read at www.venganza.org.

Q: ok, I'm still here... but what is that tree thing?
A: Well, on page 37 of one of Charles Darwin's notebooks, he sketched a similar thing. I like it! His had writing around it, I have modified it slightly. I imagine my version to be a secret rune you can wear, again to identify yourself to others like yourself. you know who you are. move along, nothing to see here. It also reminds me of graptolites- a fossil form that I always liked.

Q: Don't you know you're going to hell?
A: *wards you off with a FSM from my shop*

Q: Do you have another Etsy shop?
A: Yes! Thanks for asking! I sell my weaving and non-heatheny fibre related crafts at taueret.etsy.com, when I get time to do such things.

Q: What is a long legged fly? I have seen you and you are neither long-legged nor fly.
A: It's from a poem. ("I thought you said no pretentious names" said my 16 year old). The poem is about art and genius and that state of flow that mortals like me only taste once or twice in a lifetime.

...(Like a long-legged fly upon the stream
Her mind moves upon silence.)
