I bet you all are wondering what you can do for my birthday, right? No? Well, humor me. How's about (if you haven't already) clicking on that Followers thingy to the right there in my sidebar? I mean, only if you're a regular reader and all. I wouldn't want anyone living a lie just to make me happy. The number is at 301 and I'm thinking a nice round number like 310 would be nicer.
As I've said before, I'm proud to count myself among those people in this world who have life goals which do not make other people feel inadequate.

Really, this has been a lovely birthday. And it was made even better by the news that many angry knitters with very pointy sticks were able to make the US Olympic Committee back down. We're still angry, though, because the USOC apology was incredibly condescending. To paraphrase, the committee said that it was sorry it made all us nice knitters angry, but we had completely misunderstood all the complicated legal reasons behind their having to send that nasty old official letter. And, please, go ahead and knit them some cute stuff for the Olympics, because they LOVE handcrafted American goods. Really.
That was a very ungracious way to holler 'nuff, USOC members - but we'll take what we can get. Let the games begin!
