The UFOs, they are a-multiplying

I've been neglecting Tempting, just so I can whore myself out to other projects. (Though I must report that I did finish arm #1 in the pedicurist's chair, so I should cast on for arm #2 and rip my way into oblivion again.)

For instance, the unfinished Dulaan care package, which is due in their hands tomorrow. However, I have assuaged my rampant guilt by upping the planned contents of the package to include several sweaters and mittens, and now I am merely a REALLY REALLY giving giver, as opposed to a normal un-guilt tripping giver.

And now this:

...the overdue baby blanket for Cynthia's-baby-who-now-is-old-enough-not-to-need-a-blanket. It began life as a scalloped looking thing, which I later discovered was called a bear claw pattern, but I deemed it fugly, and frogged it. It finally resurrected itself as a feather and fan pattern, and it progressing along just about fast enough for me to give it someone else if they get pregnant, say in about 3 months.

Ooh Mista Kotta, Meme meme

From golden state, a meme guessing game.

pick favorite movies, then pull random quotes. invite guessing as to whence the quotes came:

1. "When you're dead, lie down. Besides, there's gotta be more to life than just makin' out."
2. "Come on, Dover, move yer bloomin' arse!"
3. "I'm going to get chip faced"
4. "While you're at it, why don't you give me a nice paper cut and pour lemon juice on it?"
5. A double play: "Do stop snivelling - anyone would think you were Italian" and "the ones we hate last forever"
6. "A hammer I was holding fell on them"
7. "From where I sat it looked as though you were conjugating some irregular verbs."
8. "The only people who make love all the time are liars"
9. "Thirty packets of ketchup"

and then a music meme

pick a band: everclear
and answer each question using the title of a song by that band/artist.

3. are you male or female: brown-eyed girl
4. describe yourself: volvo driving soccer mom
5. how do some people feel about you?
6. how do you feel about yourself? everything to everyone
7. describe your ex boyfriend/girlfriend: so much for the afterglow
8. describe current boyfriend/girlfriend: learning how to smile
9. describe where you want to be: I will buy you a new life
10. describe how you live: like a california king
11. describe how you love: when it all goes wrong again
12. what would you ask for if you had just one wish? sex with a movie star
13. share a few words of wisdom: here we go again
14. now say goodbye: now that it's over

Just keep shopping, just keep shopping

Okay, so yesterday my husband called me "really, incredibly overweight." Ignoring the obvious marital repercussions of THAT conversation, needless to say I've spent the last 24 hours in self-soothing activities like shopping (and eating, but again - a whole other conversation).

So I went to Yarn Lady, and got this:

Hooray for knitting books!

and then I went to Joann, and got this:

More books

yarnMore yarn

And now it doesn't matter, because everyone knows yarn loves you just the way you are.
