Bitter Much?

Okay, universe, I see that you are telling me I have no business going to the Sock Summit. After all, I'm on a yarn diet. I've got plenty of knitting books. I could practically open a shop with my magazine collection.
Perhaps it's completely wrong of me to be so angry, but you know, I wanted one. measly. class.
So now I shall have to take the mature road and pretend it's just not happening at all.

Dear Baba

Dear Baba J,

I wouldn't ask for myself, but your granddaughter has several requests from the latest Knitpicks catalog. In particular, she's hot to trot for the Gurumi family (Click the link for some seriously funny video).

Can you say no to this little face?

I thought not. We'll be expecting our package any day now. Kthxbai.
Love, your Daughter In Law

On Food

Somehow, someway, I've managed to develop a crazy sensitivity to pine nuts. I ate a bunch last week, and now everything I eat tastes weird and metallic. Odd, but survivable, n'est pas?

Except that yesterday, I ate something else -- don't know what yet -- and immediately got itching tongue, lips and mouth, sneezing and runny nose. My antihistamine's got it under control for now, but I need to get to the doctor PDQ. 
I hate the idea that I'm developing a *new* allergy at this late date, but that's sure what it looks like. How annoying -- I lurve pine nuts, and they're treating me like a red-headed stepchild. Gah!

Cool & Crafty

I so stink -- I'm behind the 8-ball on my project and need to keep my nose to the grindstone, so nothing interesting's coming from this quarter for a while. However, for some seriously crafty goodness, check out Cut Out & Keep. I so want to make this shrug for the niece!

On Hilarity

This is the best Hamlet ever. That is all.
