Yarn, Quiz, and Plans for Friday

Poor Wendy! Who would have thought a bit of a yarn diet could cause such caustic stuff? She's right about the food diet versus the yarn diet thing. There's no grocery stores storming the diet centers. :P

Me, personally, I would NOT be on a yarn diet if I didn't have a yarn ROOM. With that, and the overflow into the living room, there needs to be some sort of using what I've got.

One exception not posted, but is 'assumed' is the yarn for classes exception. I mean, if it's to be used by my students, it's exempt. If it comes from the business account, I can buy it. :D

Fry and I have just been hanging out, doing fun stuff like walking to the grocery store for a free cookie and buying orange juice there. The cookie is an incentive for getting some exercise. Tomorrow, our rounds will include Home Depot, the grocery store, and maybe Hobby Lobby before that. Mainly because Susan mentioned a half off type thing. Fry will hate it, but then, she doesn't like Home Depot, either.

I'm working on a little hat, of course, for the Caps to the Capitol project. I'm also arranging patterns sticky-noted to see if I have the yarn. Planning ahead for 2007, don't you know.

Just for some Friday fun, just in case Fry and I get sidetracked in our running amok, here are a few quizzes.

You Are Bold And Brave

But daring? Not usually?
You tend to like to make calculated risks.
So while you may not be base jumping any time soon...
You are up for whatever's new and (a little) exciting!

You Are 50% American

America: You don't love it or want to leave it.
But you wouldn't mind giving it an extreme make over.
On the 4th of July, you'll fly a freak flag instead...
And give Uncle Sam a sucker punch!

You Belong in the USA

People either love you or hate you
And you really don't care what anyone thinks
Big and bold, you do things your way

Ha! I may not be the best American, but I do belong here. Very reassuring, don't you think?

Oh my gosh, I can't believe she got caustic emails etc from yarn shop owners? Wow!

I know! As many people as there are who only buy one project at a time, I think the yarn stores have nothing to worry about.
