A problem in my thinking

Friday, November 30th, 2007

There’s a little thought exercise I’ve been struggling with lately. Back at the beginning of October, there was a news story going around about an interview that Ann Coulter did an interview with Donny Deutsch. At one point during the interview, she said that “. . . we [Christians] just want Jews to be perfected, […]

Cables Ahoy!

Thursday, November 29th, 2007

See! Cables! We loves the cables, yes, precious, we does. And now I can put the pattern away for a couple of weeks. I just need to toss the knitting abacus in there, remember to move the beads each round and cross as needed. Oh, and I need to find one of my smaller cable […]

I love it when the pattern starts

Yay, I finally got past the 1×1 ribbed waist for the Sooper Seekrit Projekt II and am in to the cabling. No pictures at the moment – I’m at work and I forgot to take pics this morning – but I’ll get some up this evening. I need to bust out my knitting abacus again […]

So I cheated a little

Tuesday, November 27th, 2007

Is a blog post with no words truly a post? Or is it just a link to Flickr? I actually had a decent idea for a post yesterday but I was too fatigued by the time I got around to posting to get the words out of my head and onto the screen, so I […]

Aw, darn it!

Sunday, November 25th, 2007

Darn it, I forgot to post yesterday! Ah well, there go my NaBloPoMo aspirations. I had a good reason to miss, though. I had a lunch date yesterday that evolved into visiting a friend’s house and helping (okay, watching) her rearrange her living room for Christmas decorating, and then into watching Battlestar Galactica: Razor. I […]

Tasty Asparagus

Friday, November 23rd, 2007

The key to good asparagus vinaigrette is properly blanching the asparagus. I asked Dan to do it.

Wait! I haven’t posted yet!

I can’t pass out yet – I haven’t posted! Must . . . survive . . . turkey coma . . . There was food, and family, and music, and pets, and kids, and food, and drink, and food, and pie. (Yes, pie is food, but it occupies a special niche and deserves its own […]

A ripping good holiday to you all

Wednesday, November 21st, 2007

Well, all of you who celebrate the USA holiday of Thanksgiving tomorrow, anyway. If you don’t, hey, I hope you have a good week anyway. I don’t understand anything about this holiday. They told me in kindergarten that Thanksgiving is a commemoration of a feast that the puritan pilgrims had after surviving a winter they […]

Knitting Interruptus

Tuesday, November 20th, 2007

So there I was on Saturday morning, waiting for a couple of breakfast tacos at Taco Cabana and knitting away on the vest for my stepdad, when all of a sudden the tension of the waistband I was working on loosened. I stopped knitting and just stared at the piece in my hands for a […]
