  • 10:34:17: I love Sarah Silverman as much as the next person but who exactly did she blow to get an Emmy nod? Best actress?........REALLY???
  • 10:36:11: In other news, toasting your Special K waffle until it's a nice toasty color results in a waffle you could use as a hockey puck. :(
  • 11:08:20: Thought I unsubbed from twittinesis but apparently I didn't? I'm thinking I used a different email/password maybe?
  • 13:43:17: MIL asked if we could get her bananas at the local Farmers Market when we go today. We live in Connecticut. *blink* Banana PEPPERS, maybe!
  • 19:39:38: @heido Her character is made up, for the most part. There was a maenard (sp?) in the 2nd book but it was a fairly minor sub-story.

  • 14:18:26: @twotone I unsubbed from it bcse I like my LJ tweets to be simple: no time stamp, no replies. I hate those, mine or anyone else. :|
  • 14:18:46: @twotone If they change it so you can make mods though I'll sign up again. :)
  • 14:58:39: If you are going to cheat on a stupid online game don't make it OH SO OBVIOUS. At least make it a score that is POSSIBLE. *eye roll*

Lizzie Kate - ABC Lessons
Originally uploaded by mellusions

Started in February-ish. Just got bored with it so I went a couple months w/no work on it at all. A word, a color block, a word, a color block.....repeat until you want to stab your eyes out. Thankfully, I like the finished piece better than the 'journey'. lol

If I had to do it again I'd probably do it on 18 or 20 count linen instead of 16 ct. so the piece would be smaller.

February Stockings by Blackbird Designs
Originally uploaded by mellusions

Finished May 2009.

Very quick to stitch but not so quick to put together because I was dumb and use their instructions for finishing. Whip stitching was probably advised because you (obviously) don't need a sewing machine to do it but I *do* have a sewing machine - that I know how to use - so I will go that route for future stockings.

These turned out so cute I ordered the January, March, and April booklets. We bought a 6 foot Xmas tree on a 60% off discount after Xmas last year so I need to make some stuff to fill that in as the tree we've been using the last 7-8 years was only 3.5 feet high. LOTS OF ROOM to make up for. :)

I watched that Jon & Kate + 8 show last night (or most of it anyway) because I figured it MUST be good if it gets that much trashy press. Enh. Boring. Not enough trash for me. VH1 has ruined me re: reality shows. I need more hair pulling and fake boobs to stay interested. lol

Not to mention, I HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE people/celebrities who schmooze the public for every dime they can get them for and then complain about how they have no privacy and OMG PAPARAZZI, LIFE IZ HARD BEING RICH & FAMOUS, ETC.. *eye roll* OH THE IRONY of having the TLC cameras who are documenting your every move, put little arrows on the screen so the viewer can see exactly where the big bad paparazzi is hiding out to, ummm, document your every move. *snort*

Your bed, you made it, stop cashing the checks then. Get the fuck over yourself, Kate - you can't have it both ways. I'll take the fake bimbos on Rock of Love any day over that kind of whining. Seriously.

Toles nailed it again this week.

Friends only now, except for occasional fluffy bits like knitting stuff and kitty pics I leave up here and there. (Though I go back and lock those down as well after a few weeks.)

I just don't want to have 4000+ posts available for just anyone to go through. It started wigging me out, having 8+ years of my life out on the internet for anyone to read. :)
