So my fav guilty pleasure hands down is Scott Baio is 45 and Single (or SB45S as it is referred to in emails between my friends). It’s awesome. SB is awesome. I’m a bit too young to have ever had a crush on him but watching the trainwreck that is his life and hearing about how he was so that guy (you know the guy. The one who has made out with not only you but all of your roommates and friends as well) is just fantastically amusing.
But not nearly as amusing as this:
Scott Baio is 45 and a Knitter
I found that on this site – apparently there was a knitting swag booth at the Emmy’s for celebs. So jealous that they get knitting swag… If only there was more crosspollination between knitting and bad reality TV. Perhaps the contestants on ANTM could have to model things that they knit themselves and Tyra could scream at them about gauge. “You don’t know wool! You don’t know where alpaca comes from!” Btw how come noone told me of the awesomeness that is watching skinny, pretty, bitcy girls freak out at each other under the tutelage of cross dressers? It should not have taken me until cycle 9 to discover this show.
I also have recently discovered this site thanks to Andi:
It has maps to yarn stores! Which will come in very handy since we have quite a few quick little weekend trips planned for this fall. Actually we’re going out of town 4 out of the next 6 weekends. Hopefully I can squeeze in a little yarn store tourism during our wanderings. At the very least I’ll have lots of good car knitting time!
And finally – I just wanted to say thank you so much for all of the comments on our trip. I saw Michelle and Annie at Birds of a Feather last night and they assured me that you guys do like hearing about Peru. There’s been quite a bit of talk lately around the blogs and on Ravelry about what people like to see in a knit blog and it seems the #1 thing is to stick to topic and just post about knitting. I’m SO not good at that. And I know that this blog has wandered waaay off topic lately and I was getting worried that you guys would get bored of me. It’s really, really nice to know that you do like the travel posts (especially since they take a looong time to put together) and that I’m not completely boring you!
And while I’m posting all of this Peru stuff I going to try to actually finish some of the many things I have started. Which means that at the end of all of this travel business there will (hopefully) be lots and lots of new finished objects to show.
Have a wonderful weekend!!!
