Knitta, Please!

The title of this post was taken from a group of would be knitters who never seem to be able to finish a project. So instead, they adorn the world’s car antennas, telephone poles, and what have you with their sweater sleeves of good intention. The most hilarious thing about this group are their Knittin’ in the Hood monikers.

While perusing this little site I came across yet another amazing knitting pattern. Oh yes. I am totally making this. Soon I will have a complete Star Wars collection made entirely of yarn! For those of you who did not see my previous post on this, I have included the other amazing pattern I found as well. Check out the sweetness!

Hopefully the knitting lessons will help me to accomplish these two feats of spun glory. Maybe if I am lucky the instructor will have me wear a face shield and make me purl with the force! Obi Wan can only hope.

Holy Jenn

Last May I finally got off my “what the hell kind of sister are you” ass and went to visit Jenn in San Francisco. It was so much fun! I was really glad that I was able to spend time with her before she moved to Connecticut. We saw movies, and went to the de Young Museum to see this amazing exhibit on Vivienne Westwood. Incredible! I loved every moment we were able to spend together.

I love you, Nenny!!

Everyday Life – Humor at Work

This was an email chain between myself and two of my vendors, Paul and Chad.

Paul: It’s ‘Photos of your Favorite 80’s Metal Band Day’

Me: Hmmm not bad. But, honestly, how can you contend with this bad boy?!

Chad: Does Flock of Seagulls count as metal…….? At least maybe aluminum….If not I am going to vote for Poison because Rock of Love is awesome!

Me: I think it can count as metal, as long as you have a pair of these pants on order.

Chad: I guess they are out then cuz all I have on order is this…..

Me: Which one? The guy in the night shirt?

Oh wait…you were talking about the clothes. Not the actual men in them….just figured from the Flock of Seagulls reference….never mind.

Chad: Hey I could do a lot worse than Scott Bakula, from Quantum Leap and Major League III fame.

Me: Nice.

Is it just me or does this remind anyone else of that scene in the strip joint from Mr. Mom?

Some one give Michael Keaton some singles!

Chad: Give $220…$221 whatever it takes…..

Hi Creepy Fingers

Take a look at the second picture from the left in my banner. Holy Alien Fingers! Is it just me or do my fingers look ridiculously long?

Just an odd observation.

Everyday Life – Beauty Pageants

Oh what a gem Annie sent to me, today. I hope to one day aspire to the Jedi level of this superstar. I didn’t realize that trumpet lessons were part of the training!

Fun with the Girls!

This Saturday, Annie, Amber, and I are taking knitting lessons. And then the next Saturday, Amber and I will be rocking out to the joyful sounds of Linkin Park! Two totally different kinds of events, but two that I am greatly looking forward to.

Amber summed it up the best in her email this morning. Totally cracked me up.

This week:

Next week:

Kind of anithesis-itical, but totally AWESOME!

I would have to agree :).
