100 New Things About Me... Lost in Cyberspace

So yesterday after things calmed down in here (office), and I realized I had to stay late with a new agent taking the late shift for the first time, I re-read my "100 Things About Me" and realized that after just a few short months, it was way out of date. I concluded that it would be the perfect time to do a new one. I spent and hour and a half on it. And when I pushed "publish", I realized that my blogger connection had timed out. I lost the whole thing. Gone. What a waste of time. I was FURIOUS. So I won't be doing that again for a while. Just suffice it to say that I HAVE been on a train recently, I am no longer a "Law and Order" junkie, I have a grandson, I knit a little more for myself, I no longer have a 27 year old Minolta camera that I love, and I've discovered that I CAN sleep without socks in the summer. Ok.

The new Project Runway was on last night. I am totally addicted. I never agree with what they do but I still love it. While I did agree that the top of the dress that got the girl tossed last night did not fit the model, I still really liked the dress and I thought that a few of the others were totally hideous. You can't tell me that those judges don't do what they do just to get people fired up and talking about it. You know... like... Yeah, I know that jeffrey's dress is a joke but if we keep him people will be totally in shock and everyone will be talking about it at the water cooler in the morning. That kind of stuff. Whatever. It's just TV. I need a life.

New Obsession... try it... you'll like it. Especially if you enjoyed pop rocks as a kid.

And there is knitting news... I bet you thought I'd never get to it.
I've decided to go into uncharted territory and design the Infant knee socks to be worn with a kilt myself. Desperate times call for desperate measures. Yep, that's my philosophy.
Thanks to my "other" Secret Pal for enabling me with the size 1 Crystal Palace bamboo dp's. I'm using them for this endeavor. The cuff will be a moss stitch, there will be a cable down the side, and I will attach a tassle. And please don't think that I came up with this all by myself. I had a nice email from a knitlist reader who suggested the cable and tassle. But, hey, the moss stitch cuff WAS my idea! So if any of you ever decide to put your two month old baby in a kilt for a special occasion, I'll have your sock pattern. Um. Yeah.

Why won't blogger load the photo???? Oh Blogger. How you disappoint me at times.

I wonder how the small town girl is doing in vegas. I miss her. Her soap opera life is our entertainment.
