Slow As Molasses, But Twice As Sweet
That's Neckdown Summer Cardi. I got about 2" done on the left sleeve. Thank goodness this is a short-sleeve cardi, or it'd never be finished in time for my Mom's birthday in July.

Inching Along!

OK, so Gwyneth Paltrow and her husband had their first baby. What's with the name? C'mon, naming a kid Apple? Alright, I suppose some people will think it's cute, but geez! Apple?

My grandmother worked for The Oregonian, the daily newspaper in Oregon, for over 30 years. She worked in the Classified department, taking in classified ads for many different categories. Over the years, she and her coworkers kept a running list of the weird/strange names they encountered. Her personal favorite was a regular ad buyer named (I kid you not) General Pancake. He had three kids named (again, I kid you not) Jemima, Buttermilk, and Buckwheat. She also got a kick out of the two ladies named Rose Bush and Pearl Button. Then there was an ad screwup that ran like so: "For Sale: Piano by a lady with carved legs."

Well we're movin on up,
To the east side.

Movin on up,
To the east side.

Theme from The Jeffersons, slightly changed :-)

Bron has a new blog address! The new Blogger wasn't giving her the love she needed, so she washed that blog right out of her hair, pulled up stakes, and moved to Typepad. Blogger won't even let her in to post a redirect to her new address, so grab it from here and update your links.

Happy Monday, everyone!
