I thought I would post less often and then that way I would have more to say. What if I have found is that when I post less often, I find myself thinking that I should suddenly have something important and meaningful to blog about. Something that will change your life and probably make you cry.
And then I think, “What the fuck? This is a self-indulgent, nonsensical, sometimes knitting related blog. YOU ARE NOT OPRAH.” Which then leads to, “Damn, I hate Dr. Phil. He is such a moron. HOW did he get his own TV show? Who did HE sleep with? Oprah?”
It pretty much goes to hell in a ha’nd basket after that.
So here’s what’s been going on with me when I am not obsessing about my hatred of Dr. Phil:
I have given my anal-retentive need to finish a project before I start a new one the boot. I have started TWO different projects in the last THREE days. I know, right? CALL THE PRESS! I’m sure there are some of you that are like, “Big whoop. I’ve started 13 projects in one day. TOP THAT!” I could, but I won’t. I don’t like to be a show off.
[Sister? SHUT UP.]
Also, I just realized that it kinda maybe screws me hardcore in the Mission Possible attempt. This wild abandon of starting projects all willy nilly and stuff. Because tonight? I might just start on another project. It could happen. Well, maybe not. A scarf and a baby sweater are totally doable along with my attempt to rid myself of some seriously languishing UFOs, right? Yes? I am only marginally delusional? Don’t answer that.
No! Wait! I am a little absent minded sometimes. The baby sweater? It is Trellis. WHICH IS ON MY LIST. So I’m actually doing just fine. So nevermind about the screwing myself. Also? I love it. I’m knitting it with Debbie Bliss Rialto in Moss which is 100% superwash merino. This yarn is so soft. And it’s sproingy to the Nth degree. I love this yarn so much, I would totally go parking with it and we would make out and I would maybe even let it get to second base. It is that good.
Also, I understand now why people like to knit baby things. You can knit an entire sweater in like 3 days. Ok, so maybe that’s a bit of an exaggeration for me (if you can knit that fast, don’t tell me so we can stay friends, ok?). But seriously, you can have a garment all knit up and good to go in no time flat. I’m also thinking that this little sweater is going to get so much more mileage than that stupid squeaky blanket.
Oh, and on a COMPLETELY unrelated note? Last night while I was knitting Trellis, I was watching Ghost Rider in HD. When B and I went to go see it in the theatres, we had a good laugh about Nick Cage’s cock sucking abs during his bath towel scene. So, watching Ghost Rider at home meant I got to see Nick Cage’s cock sucking abs in HD and it was, um, probably only funny to me.
Have I mentioned how much I hate Dr. Phil?
