This and That

Here's a little update from the Vicious camp.
I've been working on some goodies for a package that I'm sending to 62 Cherry. I've snapped some photos, but will not post them until she has the package. The only hints I can give are "green" and "polka dots".
Next, I got these great pair of skull needles from Share Ross of the new Punk Knits book by setting her up with an in-store at a local yarn shop. I can't wait to see her trunk show. She'll be here at the end of May- Hooray! Notice the wonderful basket the needles are in? This was one of my birthday presents from my man. He's the grooviest. Now when I ride around town, I can take or pick-up just about anything.
Check out the cute t-shirt with yarn and horns. While perusing Cafe Press I found this t-shirt that made me think of Knit Devil. Note to Knit Devil: you must buy this shirt! It's so devilish! Malabrigo Chunky from Stitches is almost a cabled handbag. I just have to sew up the seams and add the handles. I love the color and texture of this yarn, but am glad I'm almost finished as temperatures are headed for the 90's.
Last but not least, I bid farewell to my bionic leg. I went to the podiatrist today and I'm going to try my regular leg out for a while.
Dear Clunky,
We've spent the last month together day and night, night and day, and I'll miss you- but not too much!

My photographic musical meme

Way back in the beginning of March, the 1st to be exact, Knitdevil tagged me for a musical meme. The meme ask that I list songs that are guaranteed to make me "speed in my car, dance in my seat, and sing out loud!".
For the last 15 years, these bands have consistently been in my life, some maybe even 20. Ewww, I'm old! I didn't list individual songs because it would be to hard to decide. Pretty much any song from any one of these artist would rock my socks off!

1. Iggy Pop (with and without the Stooges)
2.The Ramones- I heart Joey
3. X -I heart John Doe
4. X- Exene Rocks!
5. The Fuzztones- Rudi Protrudi
6. The Reverend Horton Heat- Let's go to church!

These are my fave of all time.
I also went through a crazy British Mod phase scooter and all, a gloomy gothic phase Sisters of Mercy, The Mission U.K. , and a crazy hair-band phase you know Cinderella, Ratt, Faster Pussycat, anyway... I'll quit while I'm ahead.
Stay tuned knitting progress coming soon...
Who are your faves?

April Fools

I'm sure our friends thought we were playing an April Fools joke when we woke them with a phone call at 6:15 a.m. Sunday morning asking if we could borrow their wet/dry vac because our house was flooded. "No really, the whole house, please hurry!" my husband asking his friend.

This is how April started. Instead of planned bike rides to the local coffee shop and a day at the park, we spent the whole day pulling up sopping wet carpet and carpet pad while trying to move all of our furniture into the ONE dry room in the house. So now we are living on chalky concrete floors with soggy echoing walls and we have to decide what type of flooring we want and where. We've wanted new floors for awhile but didn't want this to be the way to get them.

Next on Monday Bean has random swelled up bites all over her, we take her to the Dr. and she tells us she's having a severe allergic reaction to bug bites so keep her covered in bug spray and keep lots of Benadryl and Claritin around. Just what a mom wants to hear at the beginning of mosquito season!

Then on Tuesday I go for a scheduled appointment with the podiatrist and tell him my woes and he has the nerve to send me home with stomach churning anti-inflammatories and a huge right leg contraption that I have to wear for the next 3 weeks. Eeek! I'm almost afraid to leave the house anymore.

P.S. a quick apology for not responding as fast as I'd like to those of you who left comments this week, but our computer was unplugged and yanked out of the office before it started floating with everything else! I hope this weekend is better and April turns out to be less foolish. Sheeesh my birthday is this Friday! FRIDAY THE 13th, that should be interesting.
