Monday Miscellany

Do you suppose if I put an assortment of random musings into a bulleted list I can make them look like a coherent post? Hey, it happens all the time in corporate Powerpoints: I might as well give it a try.
  • Yesterday we all went over to the Colonial Craft Day in Chelmsford. Did I bring a camera? Of course not. The weather didn't cooperate as well as it might have, but I managed to stay dry in the spinning tent and to talk more or less coherently to various visitors as they watched me, Judy and Penny spin. Penny had her great wheel, and Judy had a Country Craftsman that at least looked authentic; they both wore Colonial garb. I had Maggie and wore blue jeans, but no one seemed to mind. Miss B was intrigued by the blacksmith demo, and we discovered that Taz really likes popcorn.
  • On Friday I called the Poughkeepsie Marriott to verify that they were really booked solid for Rhinebeck weekend. They were, but the woman I spoke with suggested calling back Sunday, which I did, rather skeptically. They actually had a room — more than one, apparently, as I was given a choice of bed configurations. If you're trying to get a room there, call, because the online reservation system doesn't necessarily know about cancellations, and keep trying.
  • I love Tina Fey.
  • Speaking of politics, I regret to announce that Fluffy has suspended her campaign to devote her full attention to urgent domestic matters.
  • Which reminds me: I need to finish mostly frogging Wild Thing. I dropped a stitch way, way back, tried to fix it with a crochet hook, didn't think it looked right. Call me crazy, and I know you will, but if it would bug me to wear it I sure can't give it away.
  • Actually, the more knitting I have to do this nervous week, the better.
Did it work?


  • Nervous because of our ridiculous economy and government (which I am still not convinced will change with either of our choices for new presidents)? Or nervous because of something completely unrelated to such joys of america? I hope you are doing ok and I hope the nervousness subsides soon.

  • Knit on in faith and hope. This too will pass. When the shit hits the fan, KEEP YOUR HEAD DOWN!

  • My orthodontist was in Chelmsford. As well as a boy I had a crush on. His dad and mine sometimes worked together. He got dismissed from some air force thing because he got caught smoking pot. Now he's a born again christian, has a simple wife, no real job, and a boat load of kids. So glad that little crush didn't go anywhere! ... Yay Marriot! ... I totally love Tina Fey! But since I can't stay awake to watch the originals, I have to see them on the internet, which I also love. I'd say it looks like a post. ... why is this a nervous week??
