Good Morning! How are you today? I haven’t posted for a while, but that is just procrastination. I have become a terrible procrastinator. Between Ravelry and Facebook, I keep myself computer busy. So here is a little update.
I am tired today,but I went to bed at 11 pm and didn’t sleep well and was up early, so it’s no wonder.
Hubbo took my van today because it is going to get inspected. The garage he has been taking it too is about a block from his brother’s house, so he drops it off in the morning and picks it up when he comes home. It’s always something with the vehicles.
I am so disgusted with The green trading cards today.That is an application on Facebook. It is a “collection” game that has “albums” and “photo cards” that you collect and trade. Today, everyone is disgusted and is threatening to quit. The developer is blaming facebook, not himself, so who knows what is really going on. They have it set up now that you can send some one ONE card and then it wipes their name off the list for the day. So that’s it. How do they expect people to trade doing that? I guess they want everyone to buy (with green trading bucks) them in the store or from the trade page, but no one will get any cards. I mean you could possibly get 40 cards a day but they will be from different people. My friend from Ravelry, BECCA, sent me about 15 cards yesterday. Now I can send her ONE card back. Anyway, who ever is responsible has just screwed this game/application up big time. People are m.a.d. I am not m.a.d. But I am disgusted. It is taking the fun out of it.
I do like Farm Town, but the one feature I don’t like is that you can only send one thing per person per day.
I’ve been blocking alot of applications lately because I am not interested in them. One of them I just blocked was DOGWORLD. I lost interest in that real quick.
People send you application after application and it gets to be a bit overwhelming.
Apparently Dave doesn’t like what I was knitting last night. Actually I thought it was rather funny. He never says much about anything but we were in the living room watching American Idol and he says “WHAT ARE YOU KNITTING? (not like a question–more like OMG WHAT IS THAT?) IT LOOKS LIKE FUZZ HANGING OFF YOUR NEEDLES”. Then I let him feel it and he said “IT IS FUZZ”. So I guess he doesn’t like baby mohair. LOL. It’s a wrap that I saw at the festival. Like a big scarf thingie. It’s Be Sweet Baby mohair, and if you have been in KNIT ONE you have probably seen this wrap done in Pink.
I went to the Pittsburgh Knit and Crochet Festival on Saturday. Sandie met me there. We had a nice time looking at the stuff. She bought a nice sweater kit and some buttons. I bought a pattern, some Be Sweet, some bunny angora fiber and 2 square crochet hooks. Yvonne pointed something out that I didn’t even pay attention to–that most of the vendors were local. Funny, when I was there I didn’t even notice thatuntil she mentioned it to me. There was some beautiful yarn, beautiful knits and darling babies around. My original reason for going was to take a crochet class by Robyn Chachula, but I ended up only being able to go for a few hours because hubbo was working and Bman was at a friend’s house and had to go for 12 and had to be picked up at 5. So I had a nice time with Sandie, got to meet Robyn briefly (I just ran in to her) and helped the economy a little. LOL.
THE AMAZING RACE:
I do love this show. The opening episode was great. We laughed so hard at the competition with the cheese wheels. Who ever knew that cheese could be hysterically funny? If you saw the show you know what I mean. We’ll see how the people are as time goes on. The ones I didn’t like right off the bat got eliminated. Yay! I didn’t want to listen to them argue.
It was an interesting first episode too. New tricks by the show right away. I didn’t like the girl who got voted off, Carolina, so I was happy to see her go. My son liked her for OBVIOUS reasons. He said “Ooh la la” everytime her and her boobies came on the screen. The “naked Mormon” was unbelievable. I don’t know what the motivation for that was, except attention. Jeff looks like he was botoxed or something. He has his hair dyed black like last season. Are he and that girl he met on the show still a couple?
I am loving Addison being back at Seattle Grace. I read that PRIVATE PRACTICE was cancelled, so maybe she will come back permanently. I also have heard rumors that KATHRYN HEIGL and TR KNIGHT will be leaving at the end of the season. Good riddance. They aren’t doing anything with George right now and Izzie has really become a pain in the butt. KATHRYN HEIGL thinks she is a big movie star now. Hey does anyone remember the show HELLO LARRY??? McClean Stevenson was on M*A*S*H and he thought he was this big movie star and they killed him off so he couldn’t come back. He went on probably THE LOUSIEST show on tv. BIG STAR, uh huh.
Unimpressed. I did like Danny, the last guy that sang last night (who is a Robert Downey JR look-a-like) but everyone else pretty much sucked canal water.
My sinuses have been killing me. My sinus passages are so dry I wish I could put a hose up my nose and squirt them out. Actually there is a little thing called a “neti pot” that you can use for sinuses and I know alot of people that use them, but I don’t have one. I know people that swear by them. It’s like a little tea pot that pours salt water up your nose.
Friday night, father and son are going snow tubing up at Seven Springs with the boy scouts. They went last year and had a ball and a half. They said it’s lots of fun, but all I can see is dead people with broken torsos laying at the bottom of the hill. Dave says I need to relax and lighten up a little, but this is my baby I am talking about. It just terrifies me. Gee why not play frogger on the highway with real trucks?? SO they are going and I will be home. Too bad I never started drinking, it would be a good night to get drunk to forget my worries.
We got a little tiny dusting of snow over night but it is nearly melted off already. they are calling today a “wintery mix”.. rain, sleet snow. we shall see what we get. Right now it looks like rain.
