As my friend Chris would say...

... here's some information that will make you think less of me.

Or maybe more. Who knows?


As a 1930s wife, I am

Take the test!

Tweaking the Blog, Tweaking the Blog


Ok, if you heard in your head the same Beavis & Butthead soundclip that I heard in mine, you are in big trouble. Sorry.

Just messing around with the format. I found a template that is wide enough for LOLcats and other photos, so we'll go from here.

HHHHi, HHHHHHeather. HHHHHHow's it going?

One of my favorite local radio stations is running a series of commericials for some jobs site. See how well they are working? I can't remember the name of the company! But the commercials are hilarious. They describe basic "types" of people found in every office. The one from the title is "The Bad Breath Close Talker."

Proof of Knitting


So here we have the first Trax sock and the cuff of Trax the Second. I must be the world's slowest sock knitter, people. The last Trax photo was uploaded to Flickr on May 5 and here it is June 1 and they still aren't done. Oy. Anyway, when I put this on I realized I overshot the cuff a bit, oops! Oh well, it will only be about 1/4 inch longer if that.

I seem to be spending my time in more physical pursuits lately like mowing the #%^*@)^% lawn and cleaning out closets. (But not doing dishes, apparently.) Must be burning off some nervous energy. Knitting mainly gets done during the kids' car pool and the little bit of TV I watch. Now that school is almost out, LOST is over, and the Red Wings are about to WIN the Stanley Cup - GO WINGS!, I wonder how much knitting I'll do.

Not that Stanley Cup Finals are good for knitting. Tighter tension, dropped stitches and flung projects (what do you mean FIVE ON THREE???) may be hazardous to your knitting. But it's worth it.

Did I mention? GO WINGS!!

Great photo by femaletrumpet02 showing the huge Tiger outside Tiger Stadium The Bank Comerica Park wearing a Red Wings jersey!
