That’s my new name for today’s holee-day. We, as a human race are clueless. Do we not understand that the invention of Valentine’s day was thought up by a sounding board made up of Hallmark people, chocolate people, and flower growers with a few Victoria Secret (what the helium balloon is Victoria’s secret anyway? Is she really a man? If any of you uncover the secret, let me know ASAP!) chicks thrown into the mix. Seriously?!?!?!? Why does there need to be a special day in which you stop off at the 7-11 on the way home from work because you forgot to get something for your loved one and if you don’t get something for your loved one, you’ll be living in the dog house for eternity! And it’s too dagnabbed bad if you don’t have a dog or a house because then basically the garbage can is your next best option… right after sewer drain. And then hygiene goes to pot and you start being known as the dude who smells like moldy feet and then basically you wander the streets wearing a cardboard box with a rotted banana peel on top of your head because it’s raining and you live in Seattle! THE HUMANITY! See the psychological harm this day can cause!? I just can’t live with it anymore!!!!!!
Deep breaths, Sybil… deep breaths!
I do love me some chocolate and some frosted sugar cookies from the Grist Mill the size of my liver, and the bane of my existence seems to be yelling FEED ME in it’s loudest fat multiplying voice… why yes my fat cells talk… don’t yours? So, basically, I’ll eat my sugar cookie and I’ll exercise to burn the sucker off. The Hallmark Coalition went to all that work to make sure this was the best possible binging day and who am I to pooper up the par-tay? So, anyway… all this to say… Happy
Freaking Sewer Dwelling Valentine’s Day, friends!!
Meanwhile… my knitting addiction is hitting new highs… apparently I just bought enough yarn to make an afghan the size of Afghanistan… no joking around. And now I’ve added my owl addiction to my knitting addiction and I went and made this:
Except, I don’t really know how to work with 2 different colors of yarn in the same row, so I had to do a LOT of additional doctoring to make it stick together and I wouldn’t be surprised if I walked out into the living room and find it in unraveled in a pile of yarn. Do any of you knitters have any tips on how to do 2 colors in the same row so that there aren’t so many hanging stringers? Obviously, it was wayyy above my skill level… but he makes me smile anyway!
Question of the Day: Do you have an Valentine’s Day plans? Which kind of sugary treat is your favorite?
