Up my alley
God, I love the internet. I found a new link in Rebecca's Pocket today, via the lately cantankerous Bloglines, to The New York Times list of The 10 Best Books of 2006. I clicked on over and skimmed the list and a couple caught my eye. I placed holds on the local library system for The Collected Stories of Amy Hempel and Falling Through the Earth. These join Yarnplay on my list of holds, which I'm waiting for someone else to return. I am currently enjoying the two Nancy Crow books that I'd similarly placed on hold a couple of weeks ago.
It's snowing here, but I'm not complaining. We're at the very, very northern edge of the big midwest storm, the snow is very fine and shouldn't pile up more than an inch before ending early this afternoon. It was awfully windy earlier, and very cold. All of last year, the big storms were either to the north of us or to the south and I wonder if it'll be more of the same this year.
I'm cruising along on the back of Coup d'Etat. I should have some good knitting time this weekend, though I do think we'll take time out for a show at the planetarium tomorrow. I haven't been there since grade school and I want to go. I think my nephews will like it. I worry that they'll be bored. My sister will be bringing Christmas cards, probably not her quilting, to work on this weekeend -- she's made every card she's sent for the last 20+ years.
ETA: No. Just no. Whoever found my blog by searching "sweaters that light up"... well, I don't know why you would have landed here, but DON'T DO IT. Ugly Betty can do it -- she can wear anything and be cute as a button -- but she's the only one who could wear it and who would like to receive it as a gift. The.only.one. No!
