Movie MEME

It’s been alleged that if you’ve seen over 85 movies you have no life. Mark the ones you’ve seen. There are 240 films on this list. Copy this list, go to your own blog, paste it in and put x’s by the ones that you have seen. Add them up, figure out whether you’ve got a life or not, and post it.

Add movies of your own to the bottom of the list once completed.
(The ones in italic are ones I own but have never seen, either because no one wants to watch it with me, and I never get the tv to myself anymore, or I bought it for someone else to watch)

Anna Socks

Remember these? (you know 4 posts back)

Well contrary to my nature I actually am following through on a plan. I have a lot of stash here that had big plans and are getting kinda jealous. I am afraid they are going to transform into a noose if I keep being so unfair.

Still I am a big believer in "signs" and these socks have a few things going for them. Including the fact the camera miraculously turned up while I was trying it on. You know that means the fates are wanting me to be wearing these socks, and then Ohbz showed up. Ohbz has nothing to do with the fate of the sock in fact I'm just starting to worry how much of a diva he's becoming, I already have a scientologist cat I can't risk getting a diva too.

So far I can say this is an amazing yarn to work wih. It may not come across in the photo but it's shiny!! And much more important it matches the new polish on my toe nails. This is crutial. I usually only have 1 colour of toenail polish a summer and this year seems to be a teal/blue hue. (Sometimes I feel like a rhyme sometimes I don't. ) The pattern is rediculously easy to memorize with a 4 row repeat (2 and 4 are Knit too) But it looks cool.

Warning, British knitting terms are different. I knew this going in but when your really tired look for a translation cuz North American "yarn forwards" just don't look right, you know, at all. Actually I looks kinda dumb. Not that I did that. Just saying. ;>

My Sp 10 package


Lost, one digital camera. Last scene in the vicinity of yarn bins. Answers to the name of "What the hell is wrong with this piece of crap now?" The connector cable has been questioned thouroughly but denies being in the country at all last week. It's story is plausible because no one has seen the cable all for the past 10 days. Public is advised that said camera has a tendancy to flash at inappropriate times, so keep eyes partially averted. No reward is currently offered as it is expected to show up the day after owner leaves on vacation.

Ok I had to improvise on this post as the camera has been AWOL since last Saturday. (I think the dog is taking pictures of the cats in the litter box for blackmail purposes or the cats got sick of random blindings and my camera is now sleeping with the fishes.) My lovely secret pal hails from NY and sent me a wonderful package that arrived last week. I don't have pictures to show....or do I? (NOTE: when in doubt cheat)
My SP got me a wonderful graphic novel. It's the X-men's Pehonix End Song. Which is a bit of a lie. Dude. Marvel comics kills off every character a year and brings them back proptly. Find me any X-men thats been around for more than 5 years that hasn't been dead. Luckily I watched Days of Our Lives long before reading comics and I was already familiar with the dead being brought back for "one more storyline". I have always loved Jean Grey, I thnk that they have totally turned her into the poster child for emo trauma, mind you. She (to beat the Days/X-Man metaphor to death) is totally Marlena, she had an evil twin/clone, she's been possesed, she's had stalkers, she's been dead more times than you can shake a stick at... Still the current writers are trying to streamline her story a bit and I love what they are doing with her. I read this comic from beginning to end the moment I took it out of the box. It Rocks So Hard.
She sent me 2 balls of this, Plymouth Yarn-Heaven. It looks much more orange than this pic. It's so soft and plush. I am thinking of making some kind of stuffie from it. I was thinking ...rabbit...but then I'ed have to give it away. Rabbits are scary. I don't like anything with bigger teeth than brains, it's why I stopped going to the bars. But really you have to feel how squidgie this is. I want a stuffie from it, must find stuffie pattern. SO Soft and Cozy!
Malbridgo. Look at the camazing colours! I had been eyeing the yarn at Sweet Sheep and I was thinking about trying it then this came. Oh it's soo neat1 Check out the colours! It's got about 200 yards and I was thinking about a crochet scarf from it. BUT then Michelle got the exact same colourway in the shop!! So thinking what I am thinking? Either a cable fingerless glove set or...winter skirt... (I love skirts). All of the colours in it are on the top of my favourite colour list! I'm really looking forward to using it!
There was also a book mark that I think had the origina cover from the book Eragon, it was so freaky. I just watched the movie the night before and had bought the book on my lunch hour the day the package arrived. I also got a Batman jurnal that I am marking project progress in. It's hanging out in my knitting bag with my Anna sock as I type.
Thanks Secret Pal! I really loved my package!!
