A Very Important Question

9 09 2007

Since I have been almost dead this week with a terrible cold, I haven’t wanted to touch any yarn for fear of polluting it with my horrendous germs.  So, like many of my previous posts, I don’t have any knitting to show you.  But posts without pictures are quite boring, so I thought I’d share a few of the shots I’ve taken with my Palm.  Ok?


I know you can’t see it, but the bumper sticker on this truck reads “I’d rather be at a Neil Diamond concert.”  Now.  I know that living in Phoenix can be a real drag.  Believe me.  But would you reeeeeeeeeeally rather be at a Neil Diamond concert?


I have no idea what the “These” in this sticky are, but I know they r done.  And now you know, too!  This was on the sidewalk outside the post office.  I was mailing something, I don’t know what.  I rarely ever go to the post office.  I’m the worst package-sender ever.  If I had a nickel for every time I said “Oh, I have some XYZ!  I’ll mail it to you!” and then never mailed it, I’d probably have 43 nickels.


This is the bottom of the exit ramp from northbound I-17 to westbound Union Hills. 


This is a box of toys Nolan and I saw at Target yesterday while shopping for a birthday gif for his pal Molly.  They’re called Jimpin’ Pals, and they’re gross.  Disembodied heads that pulsate and flop around wildly while screaming “I’m a silly monkey!  Ah-yuh yuh yuh!  I can be so silly!   Har har har yuk yuk yuk!”  Is that really a toy for children?  Gross. 


So, should I learn to crochet?  Not now, but later when I’ve finished Icarus and my wedding shawl and the baby sweater for my niece-in-law who arrives next month?

“If it’s a severed head, I’m going to be very disappointed.”

That’s a tad bit weird.

Yes, you should learn to crochet. I don’t know why. Just ‘cuz. I’ve been meaning to learn myself but haven’t been able to take a class at the LYS when they’ve offered one.

Yes, learn to crochet. Can’t be worse than Neil Diamond playing with disembodied monkey heads. Yuck!

Lay off the crochet (for now) and finish the icarus.
Hope you’re feeling better.

Yes. Learn to crochet. Just ’cause you’ll never know when you need it.

And WHY do I keep running into bizarre monkey references?

Yes, you learn to crochet and when you do, you can make me learn it too. There’s a scarf I want to make, crocheting is involved. I once saw Lily Chin crocheting on TV with two knitting needles. Now that I could learn!

The heads, for pity’s sake! WTF is that? I mean I have a dark sense of humor and can take a decapitated head as a joke now and again, but really those things take the suck ass cake.

is it sad that I recognized that intersection before reading where it was? …we might live in the same hood yo! I live just off 32nd Dr and Agua Fria fwy…

Crochet isnt that bad…if youre one of those people…just kidding. I think anything to add to your handicraft arsenal is helpful
