Will it Float? And other stuff I've been needing to blog.

First things first. Will it float? HPIM2481 Heh - just kidding. HPIM2482 Though Ripple was oddly intrigued with my load of delicates this morning, he did not, in fact, try to float. Instead, I took these to the pool to test. HPIM2489 A heavy (for it's size) ceramic turtle, a plastic turtle, and a rubber turtle. One would think perhaps the plastic or the rubber turtle would at least float. But alas, no. HPIM2490 Straight down to the bottom with them all. Oh well. In other news. Holy Crap! I was mentioned on PopPolitics.com in an article on Deadwood wow. I do the transcriptions soley for the fans. It's easier to discuss the show in message boards when you can quote from it accurately. Plus, you get a lot more out of the show when you read the wonderful dialogue in addition to watching the show. Wow. I love that my name was mentioned and spelled right even! The transcript site has been mentioned before online in articles and whatnot, but never has my name been mentioned (aside from a thesis article on Chinese and Deadwood.) It makes me feel good. In other news, I finished some socks while I was in Oregon. HPIM2487 Just your plain old generic toe-up sock a-la Wendy. Only difference in these from my past ones, I tried out the Magic Cast-on from the Spring Knitty and I LOVE IT! This was Sockotta in the lovely color name "5616". Wonderful. It reminds me of Sweetarts. So I'll call the color "Sweetart". Heh. Stupid number names. Yarn should be called names like O.P.I gives it's nailpolishes. Like "Nice Color, Eh?" and "I'm Not Really a Waitress." Much more interesting that way. In stitch marker news. I've received two more sets and shame on me for not gushing and posting about them immediately! I'm so sorry Purrl and Hotmama! These came from Hotmama: HPIM2477 And these from Purrl: HPIM2471 Aren't they purty? Thank you so much ladies! HPIM2491And finally. I feel like a grown up. I bought a new comforter today with the help of a Gift Certificate and some birthday money. Why does a comforter make me feel like a grown up and turning 30 didn't? Well. The old comforter was for a full size bed and I had to turn it sideways to fit. Now I have one that actually was made for a Queen size bed. Isn't it pretty?

Love the comforter! But it's not green ;-)!

Hm, I'm surprised the ceramic turtle didn't float, he was the only sea turtle after all...!

Zonda said...

It's Bernie from PopPolitics. For Deadwood fans/critics, you are a goddess -- so a little shoutout is the least I could do.

I bet when the spin cycle kicked in, Ripley got a nice foot massage!!

Love the socks and the comforter!

Ripple really is a curious cat.

The comforter is a fab colour - as are the socks.

How cool is the mention for the work you put into your Deadwood site.

LOve the comforter color, seems cozy and warm. OOPS you live in the south. ;-)

The socks are great!

May said...

Yay for the Deadwood mention!

And about the Sink or Float... did you do it a la Brainiac, complete with cheesy music & a bikini top and sarong? ;)

Donna said...

Somewhere, I remember seeing Sockotta color names. I like your socks, and your choice of name seems appropriate to me.

The comforter is cool!! And is that a lava lamp I spy by the bed behind the plant??

Sarah said...

Nice sockies!

I like em!

And buying household stuff really does make you feel grownup eh?

Oooo I love the color "I'm not really a waitress". That was one of my fav color when I used to get my nails done.

Growing up, our cats were very intrigued by running water. One cat even sat on the side of the tub and played with the bubbles as I soaked in the tub. Strange cat...

Cute socks! I think Sweetarts is very appropriate. :)
