About Me

I'm a married knitter, crocheter, and newbie spinner living in the Maryland suburbs with my photographer- computer geek hubby, 3 cats, and 3 dogs. And yarn. A LOT of yarn. Just ask my hubby.


Yup, I’m a Twit!

Plumbing Update

So, I’m trying to get the house ready for an influx of crazy knitter friends this weekend for Maryland Sheep and Wool, and I throw in a load of laundry. By this point, you know what’s coming, don’t you?

Yup – f’er backed up again and spewed rinse water all over the floor. We heard […]

Saturday Evening Adventures

So, in yesterday’s mail, we got a menu from a new local restaurant – East Moon Asian Bistro. I looked over the menu and thought it looked damn good, so Kris and I decided that, since they deliver, we’d try them. I called to place an order, and was told that actually, they weren’t open […]

Another One Bites The Dust

Remember my buddy Steve that I told you about the other day? The one whose letter was published on The Consumerist?

We’ve convinced him to start a blog of his very own. 😀

And yes, this is a lame ploy to keep my posting streak going.

I Heart Jason Segel

In fact, I’ve had a bit of a thing for him since back when he was on the late, lamented “Freaks and Geeks” as Nick Andopolis. He’s just adorable in a very real, teddybearish kind of way. And he’s just as awesome on “How I Met Your Mother“, which I also love.

If you are […]

Spring Is Here

What makes me say that?

Rita’s Gelati – Wild Black Cherry with vanilla custard.

I’m a happy woman.

Giggle du Jour

So, I’m sitting here catching up on my blog reading before I head to bed, and a preview for Mamma Mia is on the tv. For the record, I LOVE ABBA, and I saw the show in Richmond when we lived there and took my Mom to see it in Vegas when we were there […]

Sitting in the Airport

An hour from the flight. Yay!

I got the baby sweater thisclose to being done last night and this morning – I’ve got 1-1/2 stripes and the ribbing to do on one sleeve and that’s it. So, I opted to leave it at home rather than wrestle DPN’s in a center seat (ugh). Instead, this […]

I Hate Plumbing.

Remember this little adventure?

Yeah… the plumbing issues are back. I was sitting here on the couch, having happily just bound off my Something Pink (Yay!). So, I tossed it in the washer (yay Cotton Ease) and set it on the handwash cycle, and then went back to my spot on the couch.

And then, […]

My Boys Are Back!

Oh, Leonard, Sheldon, Raj, and Howard, I’ve missed you so very, very much. It’s nice to see you back and in full-on comedic shape. I heart “The Big Bang Theory“. (Seriously -if you are a geek, love a geek, know a geek, have ever TALKED to a geek, watch it. It’s very, very accurate, funny […]

PennyKarma, this is how much I love you.

In honor of your annual contest, my dear, here I am, in my prepped-for-Oscar finery: hair pulled back in a series of it’s-too-short-for-just-one ponytails, a 15-year-old Greek Week t-shirt (Yes, not only am I old enough that I was in college 15 years ago, I was also Greek. Kappa Delta, baby!), cropped workout pants, and […]
