Goin' back, lookin' back... WABAC

As seen at Norma's this morning, I'm setting the WABAC Machine for November 11, 2006 -- I know I posted something because I was NaBloPoMo-ing!  This is for KitKatKnit's Wayback Machine Contest -- deadline is midnight tonight!

Dsc09118I qualify because I most definitely saw the Wayback Machine in action during original release -- on our black & white portable TV with rabbit ears that got 3 network channels (from a maximum of 13 on the dial), not counting public TV (because we never did)! That was one busy post a year ago -- a linkfest buffet!  And there was snow!!

The question is:  What was I knitting?  I'd just started Mack's Christmas stocking.  (I should be thinking about starting Addison's soon.)  I must also have been working on my Peace Fleece Coup d'Etat because I categorized the post as such.  I've actually been thinking about that well-marinated cardigan a lot lately and it just might be time to get on with it!

Okay, it's 10:00 -- make that 10:30 now -- WHERE DOES THE TIME GO???? -- I've got two hours for homework before the football game!  Must.not.check.email.or.read.blogs.  (That reminds me, I've decided to take only one class next semester -- and definitely one that will be useful and that I'll like.)

Thank you for all the comments about my new look!  It doesn't matter the style or how much is shorn, I'm always told that I look younger after a haircut (and one has to wonder why I don't do it more often).  I love that, as of this writing, y'all think I look an average of 9.3 years younger.  ; )

Happy Veterans Day to my hubby (Viet Nam), my dad and uncle (Korea).  Thank you to everyone who has served and is serving.  I hope you'll all be home soon.

Happy Veterans Day to your family. Thank them all for me as well.

My Dad, both grandpa's and FIL all served. Sadly the only one alive is FIL.

You know, when people tell me I look younger with my hair chopped (as they did), my suspicious nature makes me wonder if I looked really old before that. So I never tell people that any more; just that they look great! (Assuming they do, of course.)

Referencing 'coup d'etat' just put an earworm into my head. I'm guessing you haven't heard it, so I don't think you're in any danger, but check these lyrics out (it's kind of chanted for the most part) -- about coup d'etat in a good way, with some extraneous French thrown in! Maybe it will send some good mojo the sweater's way.

Sorry, the link seems to be too long to fit.

I love Billy Jonas, he's a kick and very creative.

Did you finish your homework?

Heh, that is my most uttered phrase it seems.

Hey Packers!! And the new look - Adorable!!!
