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!

Things I Learned from TV

So, I usually have the tv on for background noise while I’m at home during the day. There’s a bit of a dearth of good stuff on if one isn’t a fan of soap operas or trash talk shows, so when I come across a marathon of something even half-decent, I’m happy. In the case […]

I Love Gingersnaps

No, seriously. LOVE them. Like, if I was only allowed one kind of cookie for the rest of my life, you can keep your chocolate chip, and your oatmeal raisin. They are good, but I’ll take gingersnaps any day. The best store-bought ones I’ve ever found are the ones from Trader Joe’s – they have […]

Buffalo Chicken Chili

Yorkie was mentioning recipes the other day on the Knittyboard, and I realized that it’s been a while since I posted any. So, since it’s getting fall-like and into soup-friendly weather, here is my recipe for Buffalo Chicken Chili – all the flavor of good hot wings without the ridiculous amounts of fat in ACTUAL […]

Still Not Knitting

Yeah, I know. I said there would be knitting. I fibbed. Soon. Kris is feeling lazy-ish tonight, so we’re probably going to be watching movies. I’m going to get back to working on the Mystery Stole.

In the meantime, a FO, some planned projects, and a kickass gift.

First, the FO:

What […]

Later, I Was a Hippie.

And let me tell you, THAT thrilled my mother. She’s the original anti-hippie. She has made the statement on more than one occasion that everything wrong with this country can be traced to the hippies. I’m sure she wonders sometimes how she ended up with me as a daughter. 😀

So, yeah. August of 1997. […]

A Request for Some Friends

So, you guys have heard me mention our friends Steve and Mindy, right? Well, I may not have mentioned it, but one of their two fabulous kids happens to have special needs. So, Steve posted the other day about the Special Olympics World Winter Games Scarf Project. They are working with Coats and Clark to […]

Grease is the Word!

And also one of the best shows ever. I love the movie, and getting to play Rizzo back in August 1996 was one of the great dream-come-true moments for me. So, now I’m going to force that moment on you. 😀

Rizzo’s reprise of “Greased Lightning”, originally done by Rosie O’Donnell in the revival:

It’s My Birthday.

Today, I am 35 years old. I had a whole post of “On this day in history” stuff I pulled from Wikipedia, but I’m feeling a little more introspective than that. I’ll post it at the end, though, as a reward for those who get through this. 🙂 I’ll warn you, this is going to […]

Back When I Was a Tramp…

OK, not really, although my mother did ask me once or twice why I always seemed to play the trampy roles. She didn’t totally understand that they were more FUN.

This was the second show I ever did at the Academy Theatre in Meadville, PA. Great little community theatre, zero budget, but a good crew […]

Brace Yourselves

I’ve been transferring some old videos to dvd, and as such, I’m taking a serious trip down memory lane. So, I’ve decided to share this trip with all of you. Aren’t you lucky!

Today, we’re back at my high school. This first clip is from April of 1989 – my sophomore year. The school musical […]
