Well, we're set - packing's done, right down to the requisite knitting supplies for a 6-hour car trip. I managed to jam enough sock-weight yarn into my bag to make 4 pairs of socks. Which I can start on once I finish the one pair that I have been working on for the past 2 months or so...let's see, 2 months for one pair...and, um, 3 days for the next 4. That makes sense, fellow knitters, right? Isn't there a certain momentum built in if I immediately start a new pair?
But just in case my math is off, I also brought the yarn Susie wants a scarf made out of; oh, and then there are the 3 skeins of cotton that I am crocheting place mats from.
I hope I don't run out.
the trip last year is fading away, and we're scared to embark without this addictive marvel of electronic amusement. We learned, to our dismay, that this item is the elusive holy grail of the toy kingdom. We left Best Buy (our last stop) crestfallen and emptyhanded, but not before I noticed what looked like a Hello Kitty version of Tetris. Eureka!
Alas, there was no such thing; what I had espied was simply a Hello Kitty shell for an Ipod Touch.
Did anyone catch that? I'll repeat - a Hello Kitty shell for an IPod Touch. Can someone please explain to me who is spending 200 dollars on expensive electronics for girls young enough to be into Hello Kitty?
Fare thee well, my imaginary friends! Larry is waking me at 5 tomorrow morning, cruel man that he is. But that's all right - I'll make him listen to Tommy Makem and the Clancy Brothers for the entire ride. Listening well is the best revenge.
