Late October

I've got a bunch of random stuff to throw in here. This might as well be a "random bullets of" post.
  • I voted! It felt really good.

  • The foliage is magnificent this week. The commute has been lovely.

  • A couple of bumper sticker/roadside signs to report: "Jesus for President" (shall I point out why that is constitutionally impossible?); "McCane Reigns" (you spelled reign right, but misspelled the other part? WTF?)

  • My kids are back after a visit to their grandparents. I'll admit it. I missed them.

  • My spouse is back too. I missed him a LOT. (And not just 'cuz I'm reading those addictive, sexually frustrating -- and yet totally awesome -- Stephenie Meyer vampire books!)

Wild Boy: is the earth dizzy?
Drama Queen: why?
WB: because it's spinning all the time!
DQ: do you know what keeps us on earth even though we are sideways?
WB: what?
DQ: gravity!
WB: not me. i'm allergic to gravity. aaaahhhh (as he pretends to fly into the air...)

Never been to Pundit Kitchen?

My child is Linus Caldwell

The scene: WB comes galloping up to me, proudly brandishing the wallet he just pulled out of his father's back pocket.

Me (silently): Nice pull, kid.

My child is a Monty Python Skit

The Scene: Wild Boy and I are getting ready for bed. He keeps refusing to admit that it is nighttime or that it is bedtime or that I will be leaving his room shortly.

Me: "I'm going now."
WB: "No, you're not."
Me: "Yes, I am."
WB: "No, you're not."
Me: "[WB], don't contradict me."
WB: "I'm not contradicting you."
Me (mustering patience and failing): "When you say the opposite of what I'm saying, you're contradicting me."
WB: "No, I'm not."

Tangled up in blue

A sweater made for Baby W.

This blanket is eventually going to be for Wild Boy (so he claims). It is water waves, but will have a series of yellow ducks swimming in rows across the wide stripes (if I can figure that part out!)

As far as the knitting goes, I'm still working on my thneed. I missed Lesson #2 due to overwork/sickness, and I'll be missing this coming week's as well, due to department meetings.

It's been a while...

But the greatest thing about fall is back: Peyton Manning commercials.
