I’m SEE-THROUGH!

Monday, November 22nd, 2004

Ahhh, Monday. How do I love thee, Monday? Let me count the waaayyysss…

Actually, there’s only one reason I love Monday this week and that is because *this* week, Monday is the equivalent of Wednesday, which means this week is half over before it even gets started! WOO!!

Being Monday, a weekend update is on order, no?

Lemme sum up with list of things I learned this weekend:

  • Clean Laundry and a Clean Apartment (sorta) ROCK SO HARD!
    Clean! I know you hate it, but do it, you’ll be glad.
  • Girlie nights must include toasts to “SINGLE GIRLS!”, “GUYS SUCK!”, and “HERE’S TO FINDING [ONE OF THOSE GUYS, WHO HOPEFULLY DOESN’T REALLY SUCK]!”
  • If you wear a t-shirt that says, “My boyfriend is out of town,” there will be at least one guy who will ask you if it’s true. Aside from the fact that the shirt is pink, there is no other reason to wear it.
  • Bowling is way cooler with blacklights. See?
    wiiiieerrrd.
    How wierd is this pic!?!? It’s like I’m not even *there*!
  • Bowling with blacklights is way cooler with foofy drinks in martini glasses. Be careful though…If you drink too much, you might start trying to see if you can hit the rafters with your bowling ball. Just sayin.
  • Bowling with blacklights and foofy drinks in martini glasses may, for a brief window of time, make you a better bowler.

    STRIKE!
    I GOT A STRIKE! DO YOU SEE? LOOK! STRIKE!
  • Chocloate Martinis *must* have a little chocolate garnish. A good host *never* skimps on the garnishes. I’m sure Martha would agree (if she wasn’t pre-occupied with prison fights).
  • If you are 5’6″ and 120lbs or so and you drink 2.5 chocolate martinis, expect to be toasted for approximately 7 hours.
  • If you see a guy dressed like Tom Cruise circa “Risky Business,” point and laugh. Dude, I know the 80’s are ‘back’ ‘n all, but c’mon!
  • Julie Delpy is a pretty decent actress. Ethan Hawke? Not so much…

In other vibe-news, last night I had a dream I had sex with John Goodman.

Seriously.

I *so* wish I was kidding…

FOs and WIPs

Saturday, November 20th, 2004

I promised myself that today I would clean my entire apartment head-to-toe!! While I *have* started the laundry and put all the dishes in the dishwasher, I’d hardly call this place clean. :-\

Instead, I’ve decided to procrastinate and hook you up with a bit of a slide show from last weekend:


This is what I worked on on the plane. It’s the first of my bittersweet socks.One of the flight attendants was really into it. I think it may have even inspired her to move beyond scarves!!


At our Diwali, we get a little crazy with the presents ;)


Here I am with two of the prettiest ladies I know. I just recently taught Shreeti (right) to knit!!!


This is the FIRST THING SHE EVER KNIT!!! It’s a Harlot Poncho. See how proud I am?!


Speaking of ponchos, this is the mini Harlot I made as a Diwali gift for my little cousin.


She apparently had *no* interest in it (see the poncho in the bottom right corner?). I asked her if she thought it was pretty…no answer. At least she didnt say it sucked ;)


I couldn’t get Ashley to wear hers either. I think she was too distracted by the balloons :) She *does* like clutching it like a blankie though. I’ll take what I can get! Blankie? Poncho? Poncho? Blankie? It’s all the same…


And to round out the show-n-tell of FOs and WIPs, this is the current state of the Cashmerino Ribbed Scarf That Never Grows.

I’d show you the progress of the Great Green Sweater Project/Disaster, but I think I’ll hold off on that for bit…keep ya hangin’

I’m running out of time to clean before GIRLIE NIGHT! so I suppose I ought to hussle. Enjoy the weekend!!!

SO TRUE!

Take the quiz:


“Which American City Are You?”


New York
You’re competative, you like to take it straight to the fight. You gotta have it all or die trying.


(ok, not the description, but still! That’s my city!)

Sorry DC, it’s in my blood…

So, like uh…

It’s Friday again, and uh…

I suck.

LAST Friday, I promised drunken silliness and cute babies and shit and I TOTALLY didn’t deliver.

I’m soo behind on my blogging. There’s so much to catch you up on!!! The Babies! The Ponchos! The Babies That Refused to Wear the Ponchos! Needles the size of BROOMSTICKS! MEETUP! And of course, what is soon to be the Great Green Sweater Experiment (or the Great Green Sweater Disaster, which I’m more inclined to believe it will be at this point)

There was, however, no drunken sillyness last weekend, due to a familial ban on alcohol. BUT! I fully plan to make up for it THIS WEEKEND with GIRLIE NIGHT!

ALL GIRLS! NO BOYS! (Well, none that we know. Strange boys welcome :) )

I’ll try to catch up a bit with some pics and fun this weekend, but I will be sure to have a proper update for you on Monday as well!! In the meantime, I’ll leave you with this:


My favoritest little person in the world, me and my mom

Have a great weekend!!!
(I promise to be a better blogger next week ;) )

PS – Would it be evil of me to point this out? 60%!!! $1.80 a ball!!! MwahahahahaHAHAHAHAHA! {{cough}} Sorry.

PPS – When you guys told me to delete him, you forgot to tell me to BLOCK him!
