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!

Coming Clean

So, JP posted his list the other day, and challenged me to do the same. Fall tv season is upon us, so I share with you my planned tv watching for this season. Generally, I don’t watch shows the night they actually air, because I’ve got rehearsals and stuff (and if I don’t, Kris does), […]

A Sudden Realization

So, I tweeted earlier that my mom is now on Facebook (Dad has been for a while), and made a joking comment about how now I’ll need to behave. I have Twitter set up to update my FB status (Teh Lazy – I has it), and an old friend from high school was hassling me […]

A Small Clarification

A while back, I had some problems with spam comments on my blog, both with spam getting through and with non-spam getting filtered. So, I changed spam filters. I added a couple of plugins – one that closes comments on posts after a certain amount of time, and one that limits the number of links […]

Spread the Word

In honor of a very sweet little boy who made me more conscious of my own use of words like “retarded” and phrases like “riding the short bus” (and therefore eliminate them), I want to spread the word about this.

From the Special Olympics site:

Spread The Word to End The Word It is time […]


Sorry for any phantom posts tonight – Kris and I have been fighting to get blogging via email from the BlackBerry working, which led to a couple of test posts that didn’t quite work, so I deleted them.

So, if you saw the “Nothing to see here, move along” message, that’s what it was. 🙂

Three Steps Forward, Two (Painful) Steps Back

So, I spent my afternoon in the emergency room, you?

It started yesterday while I was working out like a good girl. My left foot was bothering me. I figured I had just done something, and it would work itself out.

I woke up this morning, and it was ok. By the time I was […]

Spring is Sprung!

And, no, I do not know this because this weekend was the freaking Daylight Saving Time change (which I haaaaaaaaaate). I know this because yesterday, I did my traditional “Welcome Spring” ritual.

Most people welcome spring by doing things like gardening, or cleaning off the porch, or checking the status of the lawnmower. Me, I […]

Song Of The Day

Can’t imagine why this one has been stuck in my head lately… (BTW, kinda NSFW. Just a warning.)

And if you’ve never seen it, the rest of the show is just as funny, if not funnier.

As Was Pointed Out…

This is the REAL one.


And I promise, it’s not going to be all-Steelers, all-the-time around here. I’ve even finished some knitting – I just need to get pictures in, well, daylight. 🙂

With Apologies…

…to my Raven-fan friends.

And thanks to Hockeymom for finding it. 😀

Now, I just need to decide what to make for the Super Bowl party (conveniently at my Phoenix-native friend Irene’s house) – Primanti-style sandwiches, perhaps? 😀
