I'd like to post about knitting, but I don't have anything to post about. Boring stuff, socks & a miter blanket. I may mix it up and do a 2x6 rib on the sock just for some spice. See how boring I've become without a major knit on my hands?
What to post about before a major vacation? Well, I could tell you all of the things I'm going to say if Gus flips-out on the the plane. Or, how I've got to shave tonight. No solid way to avoid it. Let me tell you what I was shocked to find out yesterday.
I don't watch soaps as much as I used to. I don't remember the last time I watched an entire episode. I know, I can hear you saying, "No matter. You could miss them for a year and nothing would change." I don't resent you for that because I'm some crazy soap fan (I am not), but because it isn't true. Yes, Carly & Sony will always love each other, but who are they with during the between times? Is Rick evil or good? Jason is a bad ass, but how has he shown his big bad ass heart this time? An infant has grown into a teenager and is now having a difficult time with sexual orientation, eating disorder, or an unplanned pregnancy (don't worry, you'll fall down some stairs. unless your name is Lulu, then you're going to the table). You see stuff changes. I mean shit people, Carrie always loved Mr. Big, and Seinfeld always ate at Monks. No one told you not to worry about tuning in!
Anyway, they killed Alan! Well, a number of heart attacks took him, but whatever, he's dead! How do you kill a major Quartermaine? Maybe it's a good thing. Now we don't have to witness bad plastic surgery. I hate when men get a noticeable tuck, and aren't all soap tucks noticeable?
Do you see why I need a good knit? This is the stuff that bothers me while SK is working, Gus is at daycare, and I get one day of no driving.
Once we get back, I'll make it my mission to find a yarn for Half Dollar. I'm sure you can only take one more juvenile post (no American Idol posts, promise - unless one of the girls sings "Teacher." Oh and it's Top Model premire night. I've got to get help).
