MJ knitted this last year with Noro Shinano I rAK'd to her... I just love her handiwork :)
A big hug to Alice amidst all the chaos
She is one of the most gracious, diplomatic people I have ever had the honor of calling my friend. Thanks for being who you are, any day of the week and twice on Sundays.
I was going to post a response to this on the boards, but I will hold my tongue for now out of respect and etiquette for the community. However, I've gotten a lot more info since this morning's blog post, too.
Posted: Sat Dec 23, 2006 11:23 am Post subject: whatever happened to ******** ?
I love the *********** SO much, but something has been nagging at me for a little time....
Some months ago a ******boarder set up a 'new life fund' for our fellow knitter ******** so she could move away from her allegedly abusive family (maybe abusive is the wrong word, but they sounded like f-wits to me). Since then, not a word on the board (unless I've missed it) about what happened to ******** or the monies donated to her cause.
So, to those in the know...... what happened?
I would have posted a PM to her address, but am I really the only one not curious?
****** , if you're out there lurking........?
"Living back at home in NC." would be the short answer, but it speaks volumes.
I can't wait to see what she comes up with.
Also on a side note in the spirit of the holiday season - I hope her mother does get better, if the whole back injury story is true. I never wish bad things on people, truly, (unless they have given me a reason to) and then it's very selective and carefully laid out.
In this case, I'm sure her mother is a lovely person trying to keep a family together and may she get her health & strength back in the new year.
Inquiring minds regarding manufactured drama update
You asked. I'm delivering LOL
This cracks me up. It's the latest from the Leech:
She was outlining her holiday gifting in a thread on the boards...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Posted: Wed Dec 20, 2006 12:05 amDad: Culture Warrior by Bill O'Reilly. Not my thing, but he'll like it.
Sister: Chik-Fil-A calendar (we love the COWS!), a lipgloss, and her latest obsession, shoelaces. (I-cord, of course.)
Grandpa: cookies, as customary.
Grandma: KSH lace scarf, which isn't finished, but I think I'm going to wrap the work in progress and give it to her like that, then finish it later--not an uncommon practice in my family.
Best friend: picture frame set.
The rest...don't know yet.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~That was discussed in chat a few days ago about the ramifications of said gifting, then...
An extremely, ever-brilliant response rocked out in another thread:

The one person that supported you all year long and you can't be bothered to prioritize and finish making her gift? Nice. And way to list all the stuff you bought other people for Christmas for all the people you swindled to see what you're spending your money on. You're a class act.
- And yes, total agreement - half-knitted presents are tacky if a) you have an easy project you could have prioritized especially for someone who has done so much for you b) you whine about not having a job and no money when you clearly had free time on your hands to complete it but instead did things like get a tattoo and c) how could you afford KSH if you have no job? Did you win a bet to pay for that too? Did the LYS owner give you freebies? Did you spend $ that wasn't yours? Did you redirect RAK items again?
And this little random gem, which shows her priorities are totally skewed IMHO

Dear idiots on another forum,
It's a fricking WRITING site. Spell check, for gourd's sake!
She's worried about how people are spell-checking their posts? Get a job! Contribute to society! Stop whining! Pay people back! That should be your concern!
Oh I forgot this one - someone just reminded me via PM
Posted: Sat Dec 09, 2006 2:27 amDear liar,
You know you lied, and you know you twisted the truth to suit your purposes. So why do you think I'm going to run from you? You have something of which to feel ashamed. I don't. I have nothing to hide, and nothing to hide from. In fact, if asked by someone who actually mattered, I could give an exact account of myself for your accusations. But I don't think you're worth the effort. So who cares about your rudeness?

She apparently got pissed at people in chat that night when called out on various levels of crap LOL Loooo-hoooo-ser.
Two thumbs up to the chat team!
There are also regular posts about stuff in random places, but a few people have pointed out to me that her posts really don't contribute anything earth-shattering and useful to most others and I would have to agree. My husband, who mods another popular board says that she is the equivalent of a wannabe and if she were posting in his community - they would totally flame her for being such an idiot, and that the crap she does post does nothing to elevate her standing in the board community at this point... Besides, based on the discussions I've had recently, I know that y'all wanted to get the 411 on the drama-related stuff *chuckle*
I have to laugh in disgust about all this because again, definitely not my first choice in what I care to think/discuss about during my day, but so many people are scratching their head over what other bullsh*t is coming down the pike from this unbelieveable loser, asking me what's up and all so I am addressing inquiring minds here.
Unfortunately, she's such a whining attention-slut, that she's probably getting a woody knowing that people are talking about her.
Sad. Very sad.
I'd be so ashamed if that were me, my daughter or sister. I guess she has no self-respect or is oblivious to social stature standards --- or she is that ignorant because if she knew the full circle of what people have said to me about what they think of her, she'd grow up in a hurry and act like a lady for a change.
So that's the latest. Enjoy it like a second cup of coffee and hitting the snooze button again for the 3rd time LOL
Well, time for me to get back to the grind... the job does not stop even if you only got 4 hours of sleep!
Have a kitten
I just randomly found this cute kitten piccie. It's from wunmao
who is from Taiwan.
May we all have peace in our lives this weekend.
PS-- reallllllly sleeeeeepy.... time for beddy bye - really this time LOL
Music videos that changed the world
AOL is down to their final 10. I clicked on------------------------------------------------------->...Duran Duran of course *wink*It's all good music to knit by. I am currently trying to whip out a few quickie dishcloths to gift with luxury soaps and my signature tissue paper flowers, but when you get home at 1:16 am 3 days before Christmas.... it no way in hell possible to knit a damn thing LOLSmaller version of same dishcloth.Many thanks to Zonda who had knitted a few and posted piccies on her blog... I had been looking for the pattern since last year, when it first appeared in Creative Knitting Magazine as the "Holiday Swirls" pattern... I cranked out 2 dozen, then filed the issue away and forgot which one it was. Now it's back. *wink* Yay Zonda!sleeeeeeeeeepytime... see you tomorrow...
Gotta post a few more to move the pressie tree...
...down the screen out of the fish pool ;)
Okay that should be good!
Now leave me a gifty!

Get Your Own! | More Flash ToysHahahaha many thanks to my hubby and his friend Space for sharing this ;)
I think I'm getting sick again... bleah
...but I'm home in time to watch Thursday Night Football! And I can knit! (if I can keep my eyes open)And... more news to come...sssssh
random side thought: I want some Alchemy yarn.
This is my husband...
The Cristi Christmas Stocking ;)
Hee! I ganked this from Cristi's blog - who ganked it from Tvini's blog... share the love! Thanks sweety *hugs*Sorry the layout is jacked up, but the top line is your username, the bottom line is what kind of giftage you'd want to give a roxygirl ;) Like Cristi said.. no coal, okay? LOL
PS - ahahahaaha for those of you following the Leech drama - she chickened out and erased her blog! Apparently, quite a few people have pointed me to the fact that she's now shilling for some sleazy manipulation spammail thing --- so if you click on her old URL it gets redirected to said sleazy site. A few ******heads pointed out that someone who has an amazing dry wit called her out in fab fashion yet once again back in the beginning of November in the comments section of her last post. The latest: She went running home to NC on the guise that her grandparents gave her a plane ticket home for 3 days which now turns into the all-day chat fest because she is now unemployed and living with said grandparents, and out of MD. Many people are doing a happy dance up here because the risk of her psycho ways are greatly minimized, but she's still up to her old lying tricks because in the process of hanging out in chat for hours and hours on end, she's told her tattoo story 4 different ways in 3 days, and is stalking another supposed "hot guy" (poor him) and trust me - no one is buying her bullsh*t, based on all the back info I've gotten LOL Not that I really care, but it's so skanky - I get NUMEROUS messages, pm's and emails around this dreck *snicker*
RIP MoMo --- Cristi & Ripple, we love you
We will miss you Morris.
Cristi, remember the knitty love is here for you. *hugs*
