The Fiber Trends clogs are still not the right size and I've washed them four times in the washing machine on hot/cold and spent over an hour agitating them manually with boiling water at home. Someday.
I can't believe I missed "Angel" to meet a guy who would use these words to address me:

"I have a feeling that you may not be responding on purpose (a strategy commonly used by women who cannot say what
they want...or rather don't want)"

Condescending much?

I find it entirely appropriate when the word "war" is on everyone's lips to be concerned about when my Goddess Balm will be showing up. Don't you?

Screw the war mongers, I have a life to lead!

Best Valentine's Day ever! We hit three parties, experienced a personal best for everyone in the car singing Bonnie Tyler's "Total Eclipse of the Heart," twice, met a group of music students with guitars and a slide whistle who let us jam with them even taking requests for Guns 'n' Roses songs, Bill yelled at women in a limo through the sunroof of my car, saw a girl yodel like a badass, hearts were broken by every member of our group.

Got up and crocheted a couple of flowers for my little yellow booties, if they will ever felt!

When you are waiting for knitted items that you've felted to dry, be patient. Do not put them on top of the heater to speed the process. Your item will burn and you'll have to flake the charred pieces off like you would with toast.

I washed the orange booties twice and can still fit about five of my feet in there, six in one of them. Felting isn't easy when you use the laundromat. The grey handbag turned out just as cute as a button though.
This is the coolest website my friend Natashia showed me today. I am obsessed with "The Goddess Coconut Oil."

This is a message to all the single guys out there:

If you are ever on a date with a girl, do not under any circumstances, do the joke where you pretend there's something on her blouse and when she looks down hit her in the nose. It is only acceptable for grandpas to do this. I didn't realize this needed to be expressed but. . . anyway, nuf said.

If you are in love with the Fed Ex guy, but you don't work the front
desk, what are you supposed to do?
In case I don't remember this later, I have a bunch of crushes right now.

You don't realize how comfortable you are being single until you find yourself eating grapefruit standing over the sink for dinner.

When my neighbor saw me carrying a ten foot piece of PVC pipe up the stairs to my apartment for a new quilt stand I said "highly necessary." He said "I didn't see anything." What could this mean?

p.s. Jury duty sucks but I made two hats and started a soft grey handbag to be felted.

This is my best friend Julie's answer to those annoying chain emails:


Friends are not like apples, they don't go bad.

Friends are a cool breeze on a hot summer day.

Friends do not pull your hair.

Friends should not smell like poop.

Friends may or may not puke and then kiss you.

Ah friends, the spice of life.

Forward this to 20000000000 people and you will receive a friend for life.

Do not forward this and you will rot like an apple in hell.

As you can see, she is very brilliant.
