They say it's your birthday...

Oh, wait, no, it's mine! A rousing rendition of "Happy Birthday" from the students in the writing center, an e-card from a great faculty member, a check from the in-laws, flowers from the 'rents (and a card is on its way, but after *gulp* 31 years, mother dearest still hasn't figured out there's no mail on my birthday!), Tori Amos in concert (back in October) from the hubby (along with a mysterious bag on the dining room table that I can't open because he's not home yet), and a free ice cream from Cold Stone Creamery's birthday club! Oh, wait, scratch that last one! The one Cold Stone near me (that I drove to first through rush-hour traffic because hello? FREE ice cream!? From Cold Stone?!?! On my birthday?!? Sign me up ASAP!) was closed for NO REASON. So I drove another 15 minutes to the one that's actually closest to my home and that one? Closed FOR GOOD. All I wanted was some free ice cream! Sheesh!

Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me, happy birthday dear MEEEEEE, happy birthday to ME!

Quiz Junkie

?? Which Of The Greek Gods Are You ??

Tuesday, November 06, 2007


Anyone else completely underwhelmed with the new IK? I got mine in the mail the other day, and I am completely not impressed. It's like they shot their whole wad with the fall one, and they had nothing else decent for winter. I mean, I like three of the patterns, (the bag, the El Sol Pullover, and the Ivy League vest - and what's with the Jennifer Garner look-alike? She's adorable!) Oh, ok, and the gathered pullover, but I'd love to see Knitting Daily cover THAT one for a D-cup woman. There's just nothing there I neeeeeeeed to knit, not like in the fall issue. Oh, well, I guess they can't be spot-on all the time, huh?
