  • NO you may not buy even more yarn just because you’re knitting larger things, & this yarn is the same dyelot as some yarn you already have!! #
  • We’re catsitting an ol’ geezer named Henry. He just sleeps a lot, and grudgingly accepts his 2 pills a day. Nothing is any big deal to him. #
  • Got my 2nd and final (for now) crown. Stash of Tylenol 3s coming in handy. Reward for being good was… more yarn! For my Feb. Lady Sweater. #
  • Way to spoil the party California. Prop 8 must be overturned, it’s a disgrace. (url via @curryfavor) #
  • Illegal fireworks over Albany CA! The people are screaming WOOOO. #
  • Trying to get local results, inputting my zipcode w/out thinking, I put 60625. Ha ha. Yeah I’m pretty homesick at the moment, but happy. :-) #
  • This is the greatest day in history I can think of in my lifetime. President Obama, our President for reals. I totally cried, did you cry? #
  • God DAMN I wish I was in Grant Park right now. #
  • Voted YES to Obama, “hell no” to idiotic Prop 8. Can’t wait for tonight! #
  • I’m so excited and really a little scared about tomorrow. Scared that we’re overconfident, that we’ll assume victory. Please don’t. Go vote. #
  • Just to get this said: I’m voting for Barack Obama for President, and I urge everyone to get out there and vote too (for whomever you want). #
  • It would seem that I lost a buncha weight sitting around knitting and not doing Wii Fit. :-) I’m smoking less too, ‘cuz I need both hands! #
  • Crap, the trick-or-treaters are out already! IT’S NOT EVEN 3:30 PM #

There are a few flaws in my knitting that I’m well aware of, which I’m not going to discuss here. (Any more.)
