I have just discovered the most amazing thing! Did you know your computer has a headphone jack? Really. There’s a good chance that it does. Of course, you, like everyone else, probably already knew that. I didn’t. But did you know that your iPod Shuffle’s earbud thingies fit into it? So that you can Party Shuffle yourself right off to Buffalo. Dude. This is great.
Had a good weekend doing the Travel Thing with Lala and the dogs. You think having a five pound dog attracts attention? Try carrying one that’s wearing an E-collar. One lady yesterday almost passed out, she was laughing so hard. Another woman came up and asked, "What happened?" I wanted to say defensively, "She’s just SMALL," before I realized she was referencing the collar, which I’d forgotten about.
Also: Lala brought her banjo, thinking she’d have some time to play with my dad, but instead the only real playing she did was at the wedding we attended. Gaynelle and Don had a bluegrass band and Dad encouraged her to come up and help. There they are in the back row:
Tell me I wasn’t all dang proud and all.
Man. I’m all distracted, listening to music.
I wrote twenty pages today! I’m exhausted. But good, brain-dead exhaustion.
There. I had to turn the music off. My brain has been too busy today, and listening to Hawksley Workman and blogging at the same time was confusing me.
New duds Tuesday!
Here’s a little something I made out of Wool-Ease, can you believe it? Like twenty bucks for the whole thing.
Pardon the hair, we’ve just cleaned the house. I added some hearts to the sleeve, since that’s where I’ve been wearing mine lately:
Ooh, almost forgot:
Pattern: Retro Prep, Interweave Knits, Fall 2002
Yarn: Wool-Ease, pink and some kind of tan/gray, 3 skeins each (with some left over)
Needles: 5US, to gauge
And I wanted to show you my new shirt, from the Y(e)arn Store.
What, you think it’s tacky to wear a black bra with a white tank? Okay. It is. But you can rock it if you try. Oh, yeah.
