Up for air....

Wow. Can you believe it's been over a month since I posted last? Holy crappers. Things have been crazy. My mind has been mush. And I have been seriously distracted. With the economy taking a big dump and the biggest election ever (or at least in my lifetime) looming only a few weeks away I'm spending a lot of time gnashing my teeth and pulling my hair. I guess I shouldn't be giving myself such a hard time. But I am. What do I have to show for it? Nada. I have no knitting that I can proudly show. I worked on my cotton Clap on what feels like an eternity but it has ended in disaster. See:


Ran out of yarn. With just that wee little bit of corner left to do. I can't bring myself to rip it out, although I probably will. (EDIT: And I did.) I still can't do anything with the yummy malabrigo sock yarn as my swift and ball winder are still packed. Yes, my friends. My crafty supplies are still packed. Two months later.

Oh, and did I tell you that I caught the plague last week? And that I'm still suffering? Oh, woes is me.

But don't feel sorry for me. No sirree, bob! I've been doing the modern day ostrich's head in the sand thing by surfing the world wide internets and I'm quite happy (thankyouverymuch). Interested in what I've been wasting my time over?

Cake Wrecks - Srsly? There is someone out there obsessed with cake design/gaffes and wants to share with everybody? Awesome. Don't know how I stumbled upon this one but I can't look away.

Unclutterer - Moving into a much smaller place than the one you had before will make you reconsider that box you moved three times already (or is it more?) and never opened. I'm on a kick decluttering my life... in between nose blowing.

Wonkette - I love me some snark-tinged news. Especially during an election. It keeps me sane.

CRAFT zine - OMG how I wish I sewedquiltedembroideredweaveddiditmyselfeverytingomgsqueee!!!1!

What blogs do you find suck your time the most/best? Please let me know as I have more time to waste.

This is the site that Paul can't get enough of:

Please. Tell me you didn't rip the ENTIRE THING.... you just ripped back to the point before turning the corner, right? RIGHT???

ps: Oh Unclutterer, I <3 U

You are correct, I didn't rip the entire thing. Although I wanted to so I could stash the yarn away and be done with it!
