Project Addiction

My TV is taking over my life.


Thank GOD I don’t have TiVo or I would honestly *never* leave my apartment!

So what have I been watching, you ask?

I lost my entire Sunday to a Project Runway* Marathon. I’m talking a full-on, 9-hour Marathon, peeps. I sat down at 11am, and didn’t move till 8pm. Paralyzed. Helpless. Addicted.


So sad.

On top of that, TCM is running their annual 31 Days of Oscar. 31 days of ONLY Oscar nominated and Award-winning movies, commercial free. I turn that shit on, and it doesn’t matter WHAT is playing, I get sucked in. For hours. Some of the highlights?

I could go on, but I’m tired of finding the links ;)





Unfortunately, this means I’m also not doing a whole lotta knitting. I can’t Rogue (cables) and watch TV and thrumming only interests me for so long. I HAVE gotten in a bit of knitting though…

1/3 way through Thrum Mitten #2!

What’s that? A Finished Thrummed Mitten?? Although it’s not technically a FO, I can’t show a completed Thrummed Mitten without showing you the inside, so here ya go:


I’ve also gotten back in my Rogue Saddle! I figure I’ll let the length-challenged sleeve sit for a while and move on to his brother… (If they’re THIS much of a pain in the ass, they HAVE to be boys!)

Sleeve #2 has been started!

New Baby Cables!

I need to start putting in a little more QT with Rogue, as she’s coming along rather s l o w l y. More Rogue, Less TV.

What else have I been up to? Not much, I guess… Well? Uh.. actually, um, this:

hee. :)

In my defense, I’ve had that box at least a week ;) Oh, and that one whole bar of chocolate there? Yeah, it’s half gone now. (thanks again, Silvia!)

Heh. Chocolate gooooooooooooooood.

* how depressed am *I* that, in search of that link you for guys, I accidentally found out that Jay WON Project Runway BEFORE I actually got to go home and WATCH the finale? :( Goddamnit.

    If you ever get the chance, watch Portrait of Jennie. It won an Oscar for special effects because they used a greenish color at the end. Great movie!

    Ha! I watched the WHOLE marathon on Sunday too. I felt like such a lazy ass, but I was sick that day… so, that is what I did. Even though you know who won, it is worth watching. Great collections.

    Hey, I just wanted you to know that I was listening to an internet radio station this weekend that doesn’t have DJs on at that time, and I really missed the DJ. Rogue on.

    Poor thing! I hate when stuff like that is ruined. I’ve never seen Dr. Zhivago, but I remember my mom watching it when I was little and I thought it was the most boring movie EVER. I obviously didn’t have the attention span that I do now. The sleeves are boys, you’re too funny :)

    I always get sucked into those marathons too. They turn me into a complete vegtable. Project Runway is worth seeing even though you know who won. Jay had a lot of interesting knit items!

    Chocolate and TV sound like good ingredients for a happy night in! I had Thin Mints (oh yes, Girl Scout Cookies are in da house!) in front of the telly this weekend. They were deeee-lish!

    a)Love your mittens. So super cute.

    b)Friend imed me to your site, saying you’d love this chick. I agreed.

    c)So happy Jay won! (oops, I hope you saw the finale.)

    d)You’re a DJ and you love movies. Oh my god, I want your life and your wicked knitting skills. The most complicated thing I’ve done are fingerless gloves. I must make money to buy the fancy yarn to want to do real perty things.

    That sucks about you ruining the surprise of the ending. I can’t tell you how many times Randy taped a hockey game to watch it after work and someone would say something to him AT work like, “Hey, too bad the Penguins lost”. I always felt so bad for him…

  9. Silvia Says:

    Awww, they must be boys…hee…

    I get sucked in that stupid Idol show…argh…

    Casey and I have been watching the 1st season of 24 on dvd… it has taken over our lives! It has been fun but it is a huge time committment. I don’t think we will watch the other seasons because of that.

    The rogue is looking gorgeous! I still love that yarn to pieces.

  11. Anne Marie Says:

    I could watch Cat on a Hot in Roof for 9 hours. Every time Elizabeth Taylor says, “Big Daddy”, I say, “Big Daddy”. And clearly you are not watching the telly properly if there is ANY chocolate left!

    AND Your mitten is just about the coolest ever. I hope you wear it inside out!

  12. Carrie Says:

    Hell yeah, Project Runway! I so watched that marathon too. I was rooting for Kara Saun until the very end when I realized that I loved Jay. I’m so glad he won!

    Love the Rogue, and Your Thrumness. You’re a knitting machine!

    HAha I am the same way about dawsons creek-I have almost all the DVDs and watch for hours while I knit…Cute mittens I love what you did with the thruming!
