Oh, wow.   We watched last week's episode last night (we don't have cable/satellite/dsl, so we go to my mother's and download it off of itunes.)

Anyway, holy shit.  I love this show.  I have never been so stupid-addicted to a tv show in my life, including those times when I was a pre-teen and had a fancy for the A-Team and The Dukes of Hazzard.

So, anyway, some linkage for you:  (DON'T LOOK, MOM!)

1.  The Ack Attack.  This woman, Rachel, has the best, funniest Lost recaps on the internet, hands down.   Here's last week's recap.

4.  Jorge Garcia's blog.  Hurley is the shit.

Happy Mother's Day, Mom.  Thank you for everything.

My Mother's Day?  My husband is fetching me steaks to grill to perfection.  There are gin and tonics, and all of my favorite movies.  There may also be cheese and crackers.  It's a good day, yo.

The Pimple From Hell!

Dudes, I have the biggest, ugliest damned zit on my chin right now.  Lordy.  It has come to a head, so it is particularly attractive at the moment.  (Don't ask for a photo--not gonna happen.)

I'm going to be 36 in a few months.  According to my mother, I'm a probably only 5 or so years south of starting The Menopause.  Sometimes, though, I wonder if I'm coming or going.  

Seriously.  It's so bad that I considered putting a bandaid on my face and saying I got in a fight.

Clouds outside, clouds inside.

Rain clouds outside, soft wooly clouds inside.

Merino top
Merino top that I dyed up yesterday.  The loft in this fiber is incredible.  It's so soft.  Kitten soft. Baby soft.  Cloud soft.  Absolutely delicious.  I really don't know how I'm going to be able to sell it. It's like I'm selling bundles of guaranteed happy thoughts.

Just like spinning a cloud
Spinning this top will be just like spinning a cloud.  Or a kitten.  Minus all the scratching and biting.

I think I may be mentally ill...

Despite the fact that I received fifty skeins of sock yarn in the mail yesterday:

Color Fest Fiber Arts 011
...and I have another 40 skeins of yarn to add to this you know what I did when we got paid?

I ordered more sock yarn.  The Noro Kureyon sock yarn with all the beautiful colorways, not such great yarn, I hear, but amazing colors.  So I ordered it.  Three skeins, just for myself. Because I am clearly out of my mind.  Sock Yarn Fever has made me crazy.
