Against my better judgment, I channel-surfed to the Westminster broadcast. Not only have they tried to reproduce Joe Garagiola levels of stupidity by hiring Charlsie Cantey (the eejit from the Kentucky Derby broadcasts who is hard-pressed to recognize a horse's ass when it's in her face), but David Frei was actually promoting his Sex and the City role on the episode extolling piss-poor dog ownership. Waaaaah!
And yup, there's fiber activity going on - stripey socks are finished (no pic), another skein of Montadale is spun for a hat, and I've been eyeballing a coarser gray Montadale to spin for a blanket in a gray and overdyed (red?) check.
Liz tagged me, and my bizarro music collection amuses me enough to respond.
1) Total amount of music files on your computer?
6809 songs or 24.4 Gb, which is a mere fraction of my CD collection.
2) The CD you last bought is:
C'est Cheese by the Arrogant Worms (I'm particularly fond of the track History Is Made By Stupid People!)
3) What is the song you last listened to before reading this message?
Lament for Limerick by Noel Hill & Brian McGrath
4) Five songs you often listen to or that mean a lot to you
The Gates by Da Vinci's Notebook The Squid Jiggin' Ground/Larry O'Gaff by the Chieftains and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band The Christians and the Pagans by Dar Williams That Buckin' Song by Robert Earl Keen Pizza on the Ground by the Austin Lounge Lizards
5) Who are you going to pass this to? (3 persons) and why?
The first sock is finished, along with its associated scrawled notes on how to make the second one. I'm battling a bunch of finger splits, so 2mm needles may not be on my to-do list right now. Fortunately, Band-Aid has a line of (pretty effective) swabs for splits. I should be able to start the second sock once the holes close up a little.
I got to participate in the company wellness program today. There are no custodians in the building, and today was haul-the-recycling-out-to-someone's-truck day. Everyone grabs a bag and goes :)
