Even though the weather has been a lot kinder to us this week I find that I am still stuck in hibernation mode. Especially today, it was a bit of a late night last night. It was one of the rare occasions where Mr. Larj and I actually went out....gasp!!....together....GASP!!! We went to the Dirty Show, it's an erotic art exhibit held annually here in Detroit. The art is really well done, a lot of it is very tongue in cheek. We watched a couple of the burlesque shows and took in all of the exhibits. One of the exhibits really caught my eye...knitted va-jay-jays. That's right, there were 3 of them but this orange acrylic number is really exceptional. It could be yours for $140. I've always hesitated about submitting anything for the exhibit but I think I might at least give it a go next year. If knitted Hoo-ha's pass the jurying process then body parts in sterling silver should be a shoo in.
As for knitting on my part, everything seems to be a slow go lately. I've been in this mad winter funk and cant seem to pull myself out of it this year. I think it's all the stuff going on with the economy and Mr. Larj's job situation (which hasn't changed), and it's all getting to me. I am still plucking away at the never ending stole that I had hoped to have done last month. I had also wanted to start the man mitts and haven't done that yet either. I did however purchace this lovely Julip bag for upcoming potential projects. I might not have projects on the needles but I have the bags to put them in! I think I'm turning in to a bag ho'. ;-)
In other news...not much. I finally took the plunge and cut myself a fringe. I had been contemplating it for a while when last week I read an article in the paper where it said that bangs were the over 40 poor woman's Botox. Well I fit in to the over 40 and financially strapped category so I fired up my scissors and went for it. What do you think?
We are also now doing electronic documentation at work. It's been a little bit of an adjustment. No paperwork! Personally, I like it better but some of the staff are struggling with it. I still can't believe how many people are not computer literate.
Well, I guess I'd better get off my butt and go over to the Evil One's lair to pick up some of my mail and have my weekly dose of verbal abuse. I ordered the "fug a day" knitting calender and it just came in. I had the "Stitch and Bitch" one last year but it's not nearly as entertaining as making fun of all the hideous crap that the "Knitting pattern a Day" editors try to pass off as knit-worthy. Luckily I sit next to fellow knitter Beth, at work and we can snicker together.
Everyone have a great week!
