I'm becoming unraveled!

In honor of the fact that we are more than halfway through W's second term and thus in the home stretch ,so to speak, I have decided to add a new feature to my blog--A daily Bushism. After researching online, I have discovered that there will be more than enough material! Heck the website with quips from the year 2000 alone will keep me in laughs for a couple of months!
My apologies to any conservative readers. Honestly, I would be surprised if there are any!

So here goes:

Bushism of the day:
"If this were a dictatorship, it'd be a heck of a lot easier, just so long as I'm the dictator." --George W. Bush, Washington, D.C., Dec. 19, 2000

Okay! I confess! I've been procrastinating finishing up Fifi. I've been playing on Ravelry. I guess that means that I have to upload a crapload of photos to Flickr. I'm a bit frustrated with the way my photos are being cropped and not centered on the Ravelry site. I think I will have to try again using Firefox.

Plus I had to work a half day today. I know, I know. We teachers have it so easy with summers off. I might remind people that when we have summers off of work, we also have summers off of pay--so a lush vacation it is not! The problem with work is that I have to get up much earlier than my preferred time. I've actually been pretty good this summer as I've been getting up around 9:30 every morning and going to bed by 1:30 or 2:00. This may change as I've been known to end up staying up to 3 or 4 a.m. and sleeping until 11, but I've been trying to not do that so that the shock to my system isn't so great when school starts back.

Maddy is coming to visit tomorrow and I hope I get to see her! Last time she was here, she and Bird had this pic done in one of those booths at the mall! It's one of my favorite pictures. I like the way it is made to look like a sketch! It sure beats those little strips we used to get!

It sure beats the fraternity pic I posted on Memorial Day! There's hope!

So I'm debating whether or not to knit up Coachella when I finish Fifi. I need to do the Red Carpet Convertible, but Coachella seems like such a quick little knit and it's all stockinette which will go mega fast! Maybe I'll throw it in my bag for my trip to New England next week! Nothing like sitting in the Boston City Park and knitting! The setting is beautiful!

That's it for now! I need to get up early again!

Bar seems to think he's royalty! What a life!


  1. I was frustrated with the photo thing too until I discovered that you can readjust what's in the middle of the square by dragging the image around. Click and hold on the arrow thingy in the bottom right hand corner of each image and you can drag the picture to recenter it. Hope that helps! Believe me, once everything's loaded and you're just maintaining the new stuff it's so much more fun!

  2. Yeah, I hate having to move the pictures around to recenter them - I discovered that it was possible to do this after I already had uploaded a lot of pictures.

    Love the kitty cam!

    I've been working on other projects but hope to get back to Fifi soon. I haven't even swatched for the RCC yet.

    And that Bush quote is beyond frightening - the stupidity of that man is just astounding. Really.
