Progress and feasting.

The Sunshine Lilac Blanket is coming along:

This week’s Friday’s Feast:

Appetizer
Which celebrity (or celebrities) do you think will make headlines this year?
What an inane question. Bleech

Soup
They say that good things come in small packages. What is something little that you think is great?
What? Another odd question. And ‘little’ is quite relative. Next!

Salad
Name a song that makes you want to dance.

I can’t believe I’m admitting this, but You Spin Me Round. The song is silly, I’ve heard it 1000 times, but it always makes me want to dance.

Main Course
What is your favorite font?
My favorite font? I think the question writers were hitting the bong this week. I tend to use simple fonts. I detest web pages that go all gung ho with fonts. If I had to choose, I’d probably say Lucinda.

Dessert
If you were to write a do-it-yourself article, what would it be about?
Another wtf question. I have no clue.

Man, Friday’s Feast was a bust this week. Hopefully they gain momentum as the year progresses.

Goose egg on my noggin’.

Earlier tonight, I was having a perfectly wonderful evening. Samantha was snoring in the hallway. Kishka was on the chair, chewing a bone. I was lying on the floor, snuggling Max and listening to a podcast.

Suddenly, my head exploded in pain. I’m not kidding. I saw stars and was disoriented for a couple of seconds.

When I regained my wits, I realized that Kishka had dropped her bone on my face. It hit right on the bone under my eyebrow.

I have had bones dropped on my head before, but there must be something about that eyebrow bone because it hurt like hell. I’m now sporting a goose egg on my eyebrow and a headache.

She’s lucky she’s so cute:

The Sunshine Lilac blanket is coming along:

Or, it was. After taking this picture, I realized my stitch count was off, so I ripped back most of the yellow. I love this pattern, so I’ll reknit it quickly.

I love this face:

An ending? Or, a beginning?

An optimist stays up until midnight to see the new year in. A pessimist stays up to make sure the old year leaves.
