Random Observations:

Proof that you just can’t understand it unless you were born and raised in Massachusetts:

DH (native of Long Island and life-long Mets fan): Oh my gosh, it says here in the newspaper that 88% of all New Englanders who were watching TV during the last 15 minutes of Game 4 were watching the Red Sox/Cardinals game. That's amazing!

Me (grew up outside Boston and descended from a family whose presence in Massachusetts has been traced back to 1690): That is amazing; what the hell were those 12% watching????

Proof that you’ve been in Disneyland too long:

DD (11 years old): Mom, is that a real duck or a fake duck?
Me (43 years old with 20 years of schooling including a post-graduate degree): I’m not sure.

Secret Pal II

My Secret Pal was Michelle! Thanks for being a great Secret Pal; I always loved to read your nice posts after you got my packages. My last package to Michelle included the tan and navy blue socks that I knit from the Mustersocken pattern. Hope they fit you, Michelle!


Thanks to everyone who's entered the contest. There are some great links to some wonderful patterns. I don’t know what I’m going to knit first! I'll announce the winner tomorrow afternoon so there's still time to enter.

Who's linking here?

Running commentary on my unending quest to knit up my stash.
