In which there is little news of knitting
So, I'll get the knitting news out of the way -- I started a square for the Tribute Project. I have always loved the log cabin motif, so thought I'd try it. This one may not pass QC, and I'm not sure it's really going to work. It's a start. I did allow myself a little bit of knitting on the sock, too.
I did a lot of cleaning yesterday -- with three cats, a dog, four women doing stuff to their hair all the time, it cannot be put off for too long.
I just about laughed 'til I died last night watching American Masters "Bob Newhart: Unbuttoned" and On Stage at the Kennedy Center: The Mark Twain Prize 2002 (to Bob Newhart, of course). There was some repetition of clips and whatnot, but honestly, I laughed harder at "Moo Goo Goo Goo" the second time around, anyway; a third might have done me in. I'm not kidding, I was crying, snot was running, and I was gasping for air! I love spending an evening knitting and laughing my head off!
Mdd will be home tomorrow, so I'll be able to hear all about the "cute counsilors" -- I'm especially interested in why the Irish one was in all caps and underlined. With a smiley face, too.
Kt will also be home tomorrow -- early, like 5 a.m. -- rather than Saturday, as originally planned. Things didn't go well in Toronto yesterday, the biggest bummer being that despite email confirmation of a reservation, the hostel had no reservation for them -- and no available room. They did find another, but it cost twice as much, and her friend is a little bummed about the location of the school, and and and...
Gosh, I just don't see Ai very much anymore...
