One Week to Los Angeles baby!!

(And I write out "Los Angeles" instead of LA because I was asked if I was going to a Cali girl no less! Ya goof!)

I have a shitload of stuff to get done before I leave and I found out today that I'm having some minor surgery on Thursday or Friday. That will put me down for at least two days (and it best not go beyond that).

I found out that I can bring my knitting needles and crochet hooks on the plane. YAY! It's a 3.5 hour flight and I'm a nervous flyer so this will be a welcome distraction.

That and Xanax.

And Annex.

And now I bust out in haiku...

Xanax and Annex
Two of my favorite things.
LA here we come!

Some random spoutings for this fine Wednesday morning:

* My cat trained herself to shit outside. This happened sometime this summer. (Not that I'm complaining...) Is that weird?

* When will this bunghole update his damn blog?

* My husband can sleep under ANY condition yet I will stay up all night worrying about the most unimportant things. I wish I had his sleeping abilities but I will pass on his extreme snoring. My God it is going to drive me insane one of these days.

* I'm really starting to like this knitting thing. I love to crochet but it seems there are cuter clothing items when it comes to knitting.

* I'm so far behind on my scrapbooking but guess what...I do not care! I recently become a member of a design team so I know I will get cracking on those pages soon enough.

* I have found a new love for making cards and doing card swaps. It's so much fun to be able to give a handmade card. Of course, I will always purchase cards from this website...They are so wrong yet so damn funny!

Peace, love and all that shit...

I present to you, the Gem Sweater song.


(A metallic camel-toe is really quite frightening, isn't it?

Dammit! The quiz nailed me.

I hate it when they are right.

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Inland North

You may think you speak "Standard English straight out of the dictionary" but when you step away from the Great Lakes you get asked annoying questions like "Are you from Wisconsin?" or "Are you from Chicago?" Chances are you call carbonated drinks "pop."

The Midland
North Central
The West
The Northeast
The South

Can somebody punch me in the face?

Because I have Fergie's lovely "London Bridge" gellin' in my melon and frankly, a broken jaw would be more pleasant.

That's all.

My new favorite term...

Panty Crickets.

My own Mastercard commercial.

Roundtrip Ticket to Los Angeles ~ $175

Three Nights Hotel ~ $375

The experience I will have ~ PRICELESS

Holy shit ... I'm going to LA bitches!! To make this already perfect trip even MORE perfect, I'm going with one of my bestest friends in the whole world, Annex.

Annex is not only one of my best friends but she and I have gone on a few vacays together. The most recent one was Atlanta in February 2005 so I think it's high time we corrupt another town.

I turn 30 years old in February. *gulp* Yes, I said THIRTY. This trip shall kick off my 30th birthday festivities...and we are going in December.

Yeah ~ I'm celebrating my birthday over the span of at least three months. Don't be jealous.




I'm so excited that I could just SHIT.
Unfortunately I cannot so I will just do a little jig around my kitchen island.

I'm such a quiz whore. And a scrapbooking whore.

Therefore, I give you the SCRAPBOOKING PAPER QUIZ. Love me now, hate me later.

Which Scrapbooking Paper Collection Are You?

You are CHATTERBOX paper!You enjoy being a social butterfly and tend sometimes to think of scrapbooking more as a social event! When at a crop you might find yourself talking more than scrapping! But that's okay, when you do do a page it is bright and sunny just like your personality!
Take this quiz!

Only Me...

I pulled a "Hunzer" today...again...

If you read my old blog, then you are aware of the razor vs. taint incident. If not, use your imagination.

This morning I managed to poke myself in the eye with my tweezers. That felt FANTASTIC. There is nothing like a good scrape across your pupil to start your day out right.



I was about 30 rows in to knitting my daughter's scarf when I realized I fucked up. I ended up frogging the whole thing.


Note to self ~ Don't knit while on Ambien. It doesn't turn out so hot.

Here's a little known factoid for ya!

Did you know that Minnesota is home to the World's Largest Turkey? That it is folks!

The familia and I happened to be near this big ass turkey back in May so we snapped a few pics of the giant piece of poultry. Enjoy.

A few of my recent projects.

Crocheted Hat and Scarf from The Happy Hooker (Boy Beanie and One Skein Scarf). I tweaked the pattern a bit for the boy beanie but followed the one for the scarf exact.

Here's my progress on my newborn son's baby blanket, all done in single crochet.

A hat to match my son's blanket.

The first three pages from my Circle Journal. This is going to be passed around a group of about 10 scrapbookers.

Two cards that I just finished for a card swap.

And a photo of my newborn son, born October 2nd. Have to share this cutie!! I post this photo because he has jowls. He was born 5.5 weeks early and just skin-and-bones. Now he's getting some fat on his little body.
