Getting ready for bed. I'm reading a book and my son says, "look mom!" I look up and there is one of those giant mosquitos above my head on the ceiling. Not sure what it really is. So my son got his sword and shield from Medeival Times and slashed at it. It flew around a bit and landed on a wall. So then he got a towel and hit it. We think he killed it. Then we went on a frenzy, waving the towel at the other mosquitos on the walls. A grand time was had by all.

Tell me how it is that you can sleep, in the night, without thinking you lost everything that was good in your life to the toss of the diiiiiiiiccccceeeeee.
he he he he he
I'm so clever. My son took off his socks to go to bed the other night so he wouldn't sweat. I said, 'are you made of wool?' And he says, 'what?' And I said, 'because you are a sweater' he he
I kill myself....

I'm spinning some organic merino right now. Working on a 3-ply. The fiber is the double fiber club from Spunky Eclectic in Twilight colorway. It was January's club fiber if I remember correctly. It's coming along nicely. The weight is coming out to about what I wanted. I had been only spinning bulky things on my wheel so I had to concentrate to spin something smaller. I also got a lazy kate to help with the plying and it really does help. It's not quite so green in real life. More teal and purple but it was night and dark.
Saturday I was working on hanging up clothes on the line to dry and I heard a buzz buzz. I look around warily. Buzz buzz. Looking for the bee or wasp. Buzz buzz. I realize it's following me and sounds muffled. Buzz buzz. Ack! It must be in my clothespin bag I have around my waist. Buzz buzz. I don't dare put my hand in there. Buzz buzz. Oh wait, it's in my pocket. It's my phone. D'oh!

In other news.... I was making coffee this morning and I was looking out to my garden, noting the grass coming up and being annoyed when I noticed a cat. A black cat. I thought to myself, "oh, I haven't seen that cat before, another cat to add to the herd of outside cats" It came closer to the house and it hit me, it's my cat, from the inside cat herd. I went outside to try and coax it in but it was having none of that. So I left the door cracked a bit and hopefully it will come back in. Or, the other inside cats will go out, or, the other outside cats will come in. It's never boring.

Your Result: He would spare you, but you would lose
Chuck Norris would end up liking you too much to kill you. You're funny and cool, and you would be spared. Chuck would subsequently show you how to party and you would have the best time in your life, but in the morning you'd roll over and he would be gone. Your heart would be broken forever.

These are hanging in the aisles at the grocery store. I'm not sure if I want to use something that has a face to wipe up spills. Isn't that animal cruelty? Wouldn't vegetarians be mad? Or are we supposed to use them on the instant lunch noodles? I think I'd rather eat the wipes. maybe we will just pretend it never happened.

Over the weekend I saw the movie Lars and the Real Girl. It's a funny film but kind of sad in spots. Lars decides to buy a doll for a girlfriend and proceeds to take her everywhere and treat her like a real person much to the disbelief of his brother and sister-in-law. But it's a really sweet story on how she affected everyone in the town and how it gets resolved in the end. I enjoyed and would recommend it to rent.

Well, in about a half hour, 3 guys that live across the alley walked over and took a look at it, then took it home. Excellent. About an hour later I look over and they had the couch in the back yard, had a fire in front of it and were sitting around and relaxing. Looks like they were getting good use out of it.
