  off to Dover...

tire grit in my cup @ Richmond

I suppose I should blog more than 2x a month - but I'm drawing a complete blank right now and it's 12:03 am as I beging this posty.

Well... I guess I can talk about my Monkey Bag order that is supposedly coming this week :)
(and no I am NOT the bitchy knitblogger who flaked on payment for Gigi on a custom order LOL)
Or the knit mirror ball I ordered from Bezzie about 30 minutes ago. Or the fact that my feet ache and I am in desperate need of a pedicure and some quality time with my husband. (Not talking about sex, just time.) Or quality time with my knitting. (can that be construed as sex? *snort*)
Pam & Kris popped in @ work to see me for 30 seconds today and it totally lifted my spirits.

I'm also keeping my fingers crossed that John gets his promotion. He's been working really hard and he deserves it.

Modern technology marvel - I washed a frequently-used flash drive AGAIN for the second time and it effing survived!

I have piccies from Richmond (yay - had a blast) and I sold a buttload of knitting needles on eBay over the weekend. Am going to Dover on Sunday.

Our hotel room in Richmond was one step above the room I had in Philly and that's not saying much. Sh*tty "free high speed internet" and a broken security lock on the door was just the tip of the iceberg. I swear we need to set our budget higher for more quality hotel options... needless to say, John sent a nice little email to the corporate office complete with photos to detail our experiences.

The other side of "I'm afraid to answer the telephone"?

Our grandmother Betty passed away while we were in Richmond. John essentially had to turn around from when we got home from the race (and the previous drive to WV for Karen's funeral) and go right back to WV. I however could not get the time off - it was not physically possible with all the schedule b.s. going on at my jobs.



I am entertaining the idea of going back to school. However I am not looking forward to essentially starting all over again, and 7 years of being a starving student. I will have to think on this a bit more...if anyone has an opinion or advice either based on personal experience or association, please message me.

To Terby, Soapy and Sharon, sorry I have not gotten back to you about my berfday contest but I have to get my parcels together... I promise I will make it worth your while :)

My new (old) obsession: books.
I've just rediscovered Simon LeBon's "book club". Don't laugh - he's got some awesome picks.
Check it out. (And yes, he did read the last Harry Potter book LOL)

Many hugs for now - must.get.sleep.

  "...I'm my mom's own little asian sweatshop"

Originally uploaded by KnittingKitty.

piccie is courtesy of Emma...

So it's been almost 2 weeks since PKF (Philly Knitty Fest) and I must write a little sumpin' sumpin', right?

These are some of the participants that I met or knew had appeared (forgive me if I didn't list or link you properly)

Pam aka Trillian42 (I ganked her list LOL - thanks sweety)


I did PKF-lite so my experience was equal to 3/4 of a day out of Jas' 3-day itinerary..then I had to hop the Amtrak back to MD (see previous post) BUT I had so much fun - can't wait for PKF 08'!!!!

Emma was our super efficient secretary and wrote down random quotes that were heard all day/weekend:

"...I think PKF can be summed up by the various quotes from the weekend.

"Assault with a deadly napkin" - Stariel

"Coffee with babies in it"

"I poke people for yarn"

"Do we need to put velcro on your ass?" - KnittingKitty

"You'll poke people for anything"

"I'm my mom's own little asian sweatshop" - Roxy

"There was some sex and then there were some babies born"

"I think grey with an 'a' looks dumb" - Knittingkitty

"It was the shorts that really disturbed me"

"You know there have been ho's in this hotel"

"Tickle me Koigu"

""An epiphany every round"

"I looked at her boobs and thought 'She's not with us'" - trillian42

"Hail Odin!" - mruiters

"It's a knitting miracle"

"If it explodes under me it's not my ass, it's the chair"

"Did you put out for him"

"Even Amy can't distract me from clearance yarn"

"I swore you said there were monkeys in Portland"

"It fell off, where do you want me to stick it?"

"We need some fiber to push it through"

"Keyser Soyze"

"I'm eating someone else's cheesesteak"

"Are you getting any back there?"

"Bangor. I hardly know her"

"I'm with my people"

"Mel's dropping her balls"

"She is going to True Value for a good screw"

Links to blog posts about the weekend will come later.

Oh yeah.... OMG I had SOOOOO MUCH FUN!!!!!!

*Edited to add claimants to quotes*

Just a few things that happened/I discovered:

We stayed in a no-tel just outside of Philly and laughed, knitted and yawned til 2-3-4 am.

Rode in the most amazing London taxi named Wendolene. Owned by Miss Sharon and her cute UtiliKilt-clad hubby.

Attempted to get thrown out of Applebee's on night 1. Googly-eyes, Cat's cradle, and shrimp. Flying napkins. LeeAnn Rimes. Our super-cool wait-staff. Mel knitting on her sockysock.

Ariel does not like hugs (but that's okay *grins* - I should probably ask for permission before hugging people I've never met before. Sorry again sweety if I scared you LOL) but she does knit beautiful socks! Woohoo!

Pam and I were visited by a drunk drug dealer who mistook our room for his...and proceeded to bust open the door. Thank goodness the chain was secure.

We had mimosas and coffee with babies in it at Rosie's Yarn Cellar on Saturday morning. And determined that almost everyone on the East Coast (and some of the West) owns a Monkey Bag. Which prompted me to order one for myself *wink*

WIP and my new Monkey Bag!

That Mel is the fastest damn sock knitter I have ever seen.

We shopped Jas' yarn sale in the hotel rooms (the "can I see that for a minute?" quotes)

I need one of these bags.


Must. get. sleep. I will detail more later because I am on the road ... just buried my beloved Aunt Karen this afternoon in Beverly, WV and tomorrow we are heading to Richmond for this weekend's NASCAR race...will blog from the road some more when we get to the hotel...


I'm knitting-crazy! Welcome to my blog - all knitting, all cats, all the time ...come in, get warm and share your thoughts and pics --- it's all good! Mewsings, scratchings, and a long nap in the sun....

This is Angel:)
