I got a very satisfactory amount of toothpaste out of this tube after its photo shoot this morning. I expect to fill my brush at least one more time, maybe even two or three. It's at the point now, though, where I have to put the brush down on the edge of the sink, in a spot where it's balanced and has a little bit of support, while I take aim with the tube and use both hands to squeeze.
The fact that I'm such a nut about using every last bit of toothpaste in a tube, that I actually made a special trip downstairs for the camera this morning, that I actually took a picture of my nearly-but-not-quite-empty tube of toothpaste and have given soem thought to writing about it, that no doubt y'all will have a little reaction of some sort, perhaps something to say about it or a little story to share... mmm, yes, this is what I love about blogging.
Meanwhile, we have booked a hotel near the Merchandise Mart -- and my angst has waned a bit. Your comments yesterday were sweet, my family was reassuring, and I've got curly hair today. Yes, I found the electric curlers and, at the moment, curly hair helps! We're going to leave early on Friday so we have time for a nice lunch and maybe even shopping!
I'm making a list of Latvian Mitteneers and other interested parties, thinking about some ideas for the knit-along. Yes, Virginia, there will definitely be a knit-along! Rule #1 will be, of course, that a book must be secured in some manner so that a pattern may be chosen; please don't ask for copies. The most fabulous thing about this is that it's the perfect time to add Latvian Mittens to your gift list; perhaps Latvian Dreams, too, if you've been very good! Other than that, I'll just be working things out over here in the background -- I'm very excited -- and there'll be much more after the holidays.
