Knitting isn't for me! ( Yes, I DID go and take a knitting lesson....)But, with my learning disability, and the technical preciseness of Knitting...I don't think I'm suited to that particular artform. I'm meant to crochet..( I REFUSE to say Hook...- I mean, really, THINK about it...durring the Civil War, there was this guy with the name of Hooker that fought in it...he became known for acqusitioning prostitutes for the soldiers..so they could get a little nookie in their down time..those prostitutes became known as Hookers..Sure when one crochets they 'hook', and use a hook..but, it doesn't make one a hooker in the traditional sense or collequialism of the word! Okay, I COULD be really anal and touchy about it...in french the word crochet means ' to hook'...but, I don't think those hookers had the SAME kind of 'hooking' in mind when they shagged all those civil war officers...) I'm far happier, and feel MORE accomplished with a Susan Bates Silvalume crochet hook in hand with some Acrylic Worsted or Sugar n cream in hand than I ever will with a set of damn knitting needles in my hand! As much as I enjoyed the fellowship of those other ladies, I came away throughly detesting the mere thought of ME knitting! I guess TWO hours of simply JUST casting on, and my inability to catch on as quickly as I did with Cross Stitch and crochet was enough to disgust and turn me off the idea of knitting. Now, that ain't saying I'm not going to go back for class, but, I'm NOT going to put myself AND that nice lady, Mary through another gruesome two hours like I did yesterday! I think she'll find me far easier to teach when it comes to the stuff I don't know about crochet! Basically, all I'm wanting to learn with that, at this point, is the post stitches, Puff Stitch, Pop Corn Stitch...and maybe Crochenit..( I've got the hook, I just as well use the damn thing!) and Tunsian. I really DO owe her an appology for that. I'm sure I frustrated the hell out of her! (And, myself,too.)

As for new photos for the blog, I've got to get batteries for my digital camera...I've got some baby things made up..and need documentation...
As for the latest movie I've seen, I borrowed my Mom's Forsyte Saga Video set...It was shown on Masterpeice Theatre a few years ago, and is VERY good...it's based on the series of books by John Galsworthy. How I wish I'd checked out that book while at South...if I'd had known it was THAT good and interesting!?? Oh..and I've got to admit that the guy that plays Soames was a hottie, despite the fact that he was an anal wanker that needed some serious smack down! The guy that played Jon Forsyte was even more a hottie, though..... Okay..so, I like stuff like that- there is also the fact that I actually liked the old "Rich Man Poor Man" series with Nick Nolte in it...( And, can we say hottie!!! Oh yeah...I've always thought that Nick Nolte was definitely drop dead, droolingly gorgeous...*fans herself*... I'll even be honest enough to admit that I also used to stay up really late when I was little to catch the series based on John James' series of books that started with "The Bastard"...about the Kent Family. The guy in that, I THINK his name was Andrew Stevens...and he was with Kate Jackson for years...or something like that. - I'm sure I don't have to remind anyone of who Kate Jackson was- she played Sabrina in Charlie's Angels, and was in "The Scarecrow and Mrs. King"...back in the day... Anyway, my watching THAT mini Series didn't last long..until Aunt Lou and Joni found out that I'd been watching it...boy, did the fur fly over that one. But, then again, this is the same kid that used to watch the old "Mary Hartman" series,too...- NOT exactly appropriate television viewing for a ten year old...but, it WAS interesting,though! ( A LOT more interesting than Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom, Jaques Crusteau, and some of the other stuff Dad tried and failed to get me to watch as a kid! As it was, he played hell getting me to pay to the news and current events,intitally. Did I mention that I'm stubborn?)
ah well...enough blathering and not saying anything of interest or actually intelligent or interesting...It's not like anyone cares about some of the stuff I watched in TV back in the day....*snickers*- Like I won't deny- I was a STRANGE kid...and an even more strange adult...can we say unique, and possesses far to many idiocyncricies for her own good??? Yup, that sums me up! Wierd! LOL...Which Annoying B-list Celebrity Are You?Brought to you by Rum and Monkey.
You know it's REALLY really bad when you take an online quiz for which B list celebrity you are..and you get one that annoys the hell out of you with his cheeze ball image and reputation...God! I'm the one that ALWAYS flips the channel when ever ol' Regis shows up...and that Kelly Grippa lady that's his co host? I thought she was cool when she did " The View" with Barbara Walters and company...well...anything with Regis IS cheeze ball, overly anal, artificial and lame in my opinion...I don't know. I guess the first not so nice thought that crosses my mind when Regis is assaulting my visual perception mode- is that I ask myself if he's Gilderoy Lockhart's brother or fraternal twin or something...- And, that's the honest to gods truth,too! *Shudders*...okay..it's time I went and got a little more coffee...this ain't lookin' good after THAT..*shudders*....
