Finally a Posting

You know how quite often you see baby boomer men with little tiny thin pony tails and bald every place else? I wonder what the Vikings looked like when they started getting bald?

I thought that I'd do some research into Christmas starting from a pagan holiday and this is the first thing I came across
here. It is pretty funny.

Saying for the rest of the week:
That guy has wiener written all over him.

Baby talk

I would like to knit my friends some baby presents so I have been looking for, not just cute, but unique and somewhat "elfish" baby knitting patterns. So far I have had very limited luck. I love the knitting designs by Kate Gilbert. They are unique and beautiful and some are even "elfish!". Unfortunately I will have to wait for the patterns to be written.

I've just remembered that I have photos froom the Rennaissnce Faire on Flickr.

I came to a conclusion. No one cares about my feelings except me.

In the news



My interface design for the Cornell University Entomology web site redesign won! See it here and here.
Some notes about the design: 1. The menus are not hyperlinked to any pages (because only a design!) 2. The photograph next to the writing about the Entomology Dept. would change each time the page is refreshed. The photos would be of people in Entomology 3. Writing on the page is just "filler" to designate content areas 4. Since this is a design (versus an actual web page), it will download slowly from a slower speed connection than our high speed connection at Cornell

Now we'll see how badly our "computer support" geek can ruin it. I was excited because I could have it in my portfolio but who knows what he will do to it since he is so lame. Maybe I won't want my name on it.

Saying for the week: Better do it while you can.

Knitting update:
I am half finished with the back. It's been very hard to keep the pattern correct. I could have knitted the whole thing a couple of times over if I didn't have to keep taking it out and figure out what stitches I had dropped and messed up. Oh well, it's only a bus project.

Coming up next: Food and recipes. Feta / spinach strata. Hot fudge pudding cake. Post a comment for recipes. Later.

Jab me in the rear with a pointy thing (?)

I read this and thought that it was a pretty accurate description of how my week is starting off so I'm going to make it my saying for the week. This is quite the same idea as my usual saying about the ole hot poker in the eye....

Saying for the week:

Just jab me in the rear with a pointy thing.

Squishy eyeballs

It's been so much fun having TV cable especially after not having TV for years. There are so many home and craft shows on now. And they are on all the time. I am completely in love with this one called "While you were out".
I watched the new Martha show yesterevening for the first time.They made pumpkin raviolis (which are very good with a smoked tomato cream sauce) and this very good looking wreath although the web site photo just does not do it justice because on the show it was awesome. You just jam the twigs through the eye balls. Martha was pretty funny about doing that and described it as if they were the way real eye balls would be and then seemed to gross herself out and added that but of course she doesn't really know what it would be like never having done that.
They had small bags of those eye balls at Target. Should have gotten some along with the tiny rubber rats.

Just another rainy Tuesday

So there's this band that's going to be playing this week. I can't seem to be able to figure out what their name is from what is written about them...but they are (quote) "superstars of Bulgarian "wedding music," a kinetic, rhythmbending cultural force that ricocheted across Southeastern Europe in the 1970s and '80s." (unquote) You can view their album here. You will see that they are four manly type guys. (Click on the photo of the record cover to go where you can hear the song samples)

This is how their music is described:
"Built upon virtuosic technique, inventive improvisation, rapid tempos and daring key changes, “wedding music” is based in Balkan folk music and infused with a riveting mix of jazz and rock, Gypsy, Turkish and Indian music, and pure testosterone. " (me laughing-"Ha! Ha! Ha!")

Well, after reading all that, I was surprised when the first song sample started to play! Click on
Lenorije Chaje and listen to the whole snippet... (another me laughing-"Ha! Ha! Ha!")

Testosterone my butt.

All about being

All about being... (Choose only one)
A.) In charge
C.) Fucked
D.) Fucked over
E.) All of the above

Saying for the week: - From last Wednesday to today- I'm a little late with it.

"Gee, I'm sorry you've got a stick up your ass."

Yep, practice saying it with the emphasis on various words in it.

Is fear a factor for you?

OMG!! I wait all week to watch Fear Factor and it's not even on!!!
AND it wasn't on last week either!

I'm knitting a new sweater.
It's from the Vogue Knitting
Spring/Summer 2005 issue.
Very tricky to knit unless my
COMPLETE attention is on it.
But I'm really enjoying something
so complicated-it's like putting a
puzzle together. (Although I don't
actual like to do puzzles)

Beautiful day for the start of a beautiful week

At some point I will take the time to figure out the code of this blog so that I can have sections of all my wonderful craftiness projects. And also a header. And, and, and.......
This morning someone on the bus had a big bag withe Delaware grapes, apples, and pears from his farm. Every week something is ripe. The grape trucks from Hector vineyards have been on the road hauling grapes to different wineries around Hammondsport.

Something to look forward to in just three friend David will be here! YEAH!

Raining Pouring

It never seems to amaze me that either absolutely nothing happens or everything happens at the same time. What a pain but better than nothing I guess.

Photo right: Misha Mia at the clubhouse

Phrase/Sentence for the week:
Thank you so very much, Asshole.
I was thinking of "Bloated with his own self-righteousness" but that really was more for last week.

My outfit for when I get the the Sausage Caravan going. (Who's that guy in the background?) I think that I have to have one to go with the dress. To accessorize it.
