honestly, i need to avoid that store, because it's a dangerous money sink for me. Unfortunately, the store also seems to be a very social and nice place for knitters to get together and knit. I did pick up a card for the redwood city stitch n' bitch meetings, perhaps I will go to one of those.

Actually we do agree on one thing. People like you should bow down to people like me.
I live in a 7 digit figure house. I work only because I want to not because I have to. My salary is in the 6 digits and so is my husbands. We both hold very high positions in the Silicon Valley. My son goes to a very highly noted and very expensive private school. My 12 week old son has a nanny. I have a dog walker during the day who also does all the poop scooping. I also have a Gardener and a housekeeper. I prefer to spend my time with my animals and children then gardening or doing housekeeping chores.
I also donate a considerable amount to the Santa Clara Humane Society every month even though both my dogs did not come from the shelter. I also donated a considerable amount to the Walknwag and plan on donating to the Bark in the Park.
And you should laugh your ass off a little. I am sure you can use to lose a couple dozen pounds off your lazy fat arrogant ass. I am fortunate to have a personal trainer and am also a member of the Decathlon in Santa Clara which is a very exclusive club. I also have weekly spa treatments in Los Gatos.
And I completed my Masters in Computer Science with a minor in Sociology.
If I had any "grammar" errors it's because I have an admin. to do all the typing for me at my office and I have better things to do with my time then double check every word and comma and punctuation is in place.
And what, may I ask, did you get your Masters in? "

- the wonderful and amazing Alton Brown, who we met in person at the Stanford Shopping Center on Saturday
- the difficulty finding beautiful white girls
- my cool new neighbors and their awesome house (which we got a tour of last night briefly). I could totally borrow sugar from these people! Eggs even!
and my friend marlow is in town only until Friday (back from China). I completely want to see her, I just hope I can get all my moving done (and work) so I'm not so busy.

My duty, find a bunch of pretty white girls and take pictures of them. Ok, so not really along the pretty lines, but more along the omg-she's-hot line. And they have to look like they could go to Stanford, but not be connected with Stanford (so people won't recognize them).
So I get to head out to the mall sometime to find these hot white females.

it is sooooo pretty, so I had to learn how to do it. Apparently it's actually quite simple and just involves extra wrapping and dropping of stitches. See here.
after I've done a couple drop stitch scarves, I may want to have fun trying to make this scarf. instructions here. from knitty.com

So having been to Michael's not too long ago, I realized the store did not have the range of types of yarns I would like to explore in knitting. I had been looking to get into natural fibers since it would be easier to block my scarves afterwards to get rid of the curling problem I have.
The purple chenille sweater above is one I had in my donation pile as it had managed to become too short on me. The two balls of yarn to the side of the sweater were the arms of the sweater.
Today I stopped by st. vincent de paul to look for other good sweaters to recycle into my scarves. I plan to go back until the end of august to look at teh sweaters since they're all 50% off until then.
I picked up this GAP sweater
for $4. It's 50% acrylic, 45% mohair, 5% wool. It's in some fun colors tho for a scarf. I've already dissassembled the front panel and one arm. Here's one of the hanks from that
I also picked up another large greenish sweater that's 100% lambswool. I intend to make a great collection of these recycled yarns so this fall I can knit up a bunch of scarves for the winter.

Note says, "Park more courteous - can't say please cause people like you is why the worlds all fucked up"
She was apparently mad that I parked a couple feet too far from the red zone on the curb. In my defense, it would have been very difficult for anyone to park in front of me even if I had been parked next to the red (I know because I moved it up to the red after I found out about the mad lady) unless they drove a mini or a z3. Furthermore, there was actually quite a lot of parking on the street still available.
Blah. Apparently my poor parking is the bane of the world.

I actually hadn't listened to the Who much before this, although one of their cds is loaded on my ipod.
Ervy got the tix from work, so we were VIPs. This meant: 1) pink ticket, neon yellow wristband, 2) special entrance, 3) special terrace area with a bar and free appetizers and root beer floats, 4) free picture, 5) box seats
overall, the concert was a lot of fun. The real who fans let me know what songs they thought were good. There was much standing, lighter waving, and dancing during the good songs, and during the bad songs, they sat down or left to go get drinks. I personally thought they were pretty good. Unfortunately, I don't think they could really do some of their songs as well as they used to. There were a couple songs where one of the leads was flat the whole time. Other times, the other lead wouldn't really have the timing down on the song, and he'd be going just a tad slower in the beginning than the rest of the band.
one of the men in our box kept lighting up. He bought us all drinks, even though none of us had any idea who he was.
update---- sfgate review of concert
Once one of the greatest rock bands to ever walk the face of the earth, the mighty Who has been reduced to a pair of middle-aged gentlemen propped up by professional sidemen, running through a crisply efficient, vigorous version of the band's old program.

Today after going to Costco and OSH with paulie, e and I returned home. We walked into our courtyard between the parking lot and our corridor. I mentioned that I was hoping to see the little kitten that has moved into someone's apt on the 2nd floor (ooh how bad of them!).
Ervy then pointed out the very sad kitty that was in front of us. I hadn't noticed him in the shade. It was dreadfully skinny and its fur was quite dull and dirty. It was surrounded by a swarm of flies and bees. The worst thing about this kitty was its wounds. It had obviously been in some sort of fight. It was missing it's nose and entire top of its mouth, leaving a gaping hole in its face that flies continued to try to land in.
I put food out for the kitty and water. We called Palo Alto Humane Society and SPCA, but before someone arrived the kitty wandered off, and I couldn't find him after that.
