Happy Friday

Wheel update. Wednesday night it left the UPS clearing house in Hodgkins IL at 8:30 PM. Looks like a suburb of Chicago. It says it will arrive Monday to our home and then I get to assemble it and give it a test run. :)

I found this on Inky's blog and was shocked when the score came up. So the rhetoric about sleep learning was correct because I was not a very good student in High School. Lots of late nights watching the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson and the Tomorrow show with Tom Snyder and sleeping in the back of class. I've always loved late night television and still love the wee hours of the morning.

You paid attention during 100% of high school!

85-100% You must be an autodidact, because American high schools don't get scores that high! Good show, old chap!

Do you deserve your high school diploma?

The Malabrigo scarf is over 50" long now and coming into the home stretch, about 17" left to get the correct length. I figure as soon as I finish it it will warm up and she won't need it.

the OC Pubknitters group has swelled to a dozen attending the meetings. Our friend Stacey joined us Wednesday night for the fun and diverse crowd. The one part of the night that was amusing to me was when I noticed one of the ladies had out her TI 86 graphing calculator to do some arithmetic for her project. A couple of the ladies either have a PhD or are working on one in microbiology so it's natural that they have powerful calculators but it's not normal to see someone whip it out at the knitting table. Mine sits in my desk drawer at work collecting dust while I carry a free solar low end model with large keys to do any simple calculations. Funny how you learn all the math and need the calculator until you graduate and then it's just a trophy that you don't need it anymore. Knowing the area under the curve isn't required to knit thank goodness. Poor Megann has a bad cold, We all Miss you! Get well soon.

I'm missing the monthly men's knit night because tonight we plan to go over to A Mano Yarn Center for the monthly Bad Girls Knit Night. Guys are allowed to come too. :) One of our friends is moving away and this is sort of a send off party for her. I know it seems like we have a knitting group for every day of the week, not really it just feels like it when they all meet on the same day. Saturday morning I going to the Greater Los Angeles Spinning Guild meeting for my first time there. Really looking forward to meeting these people. I know my wheel won't be here until Monday but I have a wheel to use until then. More on that at a later date.

  1. Since you're a guy, does that make you the King of the Bad Girls? Or simply Mrs. Twisted's prince consort?
