As you know, for some reason every show is on Thursday night. Thank God for TiVo, or I would have missed everything, since I went to bed at 8:30. (Did it help? No. The kids still woke up at 4 am.) Anyway, I’ve spent the past couple of days on my treadmill and watching the TV I missed. More bad news – my treadmill is quickly dying and BR is convinced we’re all getting cancer because the band is wearing down while I’m on it. How am I going to watch TV without my treadmill? I really do love to multitask – watching TV on TiVo while walking and knitting is it for me.
I think I’ve mentioned before that I haven’t been that into Grey’s Anatomy since the first season. Well, I finally watched the show from this week and I really thought it was the best of the season, at least! Can you believe everything they packed into that episode? George, Callie, everything? I could even stand Meredith this episode.
I know I enjoyed the other shows I watched (save for this week’s The Office. I know, heresy, but it was really bad) but I watched so many since Thursday that I can’t remember them all! CSI, Shark, Ugly Betty, The Office, Grey’s Anatomy, The Knights of Prosperity, even a few Food Network shows thrown in. Now that I think about it, the Knights was hilarious, as usual. I just loved when Rockefeller forgot his fake name and pretended he was singing the song “Puttin’ on the Ritz” when he said his real name! And the idea that a guy would be into Donal Logue? Hilarious! It was right up there with the Drew Carey storyline where Oswald was “dating” his UPS coworker. “Homosex” couldn’t be funnier!
Meanwhile, I’ve been plugging away on my February sweater, mostly, but I’ve also got to measure my Second Sock Syndrome 2 sock to see if I’m ready to do the decreases again. I’ve got a problem with that in that my pal likes to do the magic loop, and I chose size 3 needles, so I’m going to have to buy her a 40″ size 3 needle. The problem being needles are usually sold with or near yarn, and I am not supposed to be buying yarn!
Have I mentioned that one of my LYSs is having their second annual SuperBowl sale tomorrow? I really was going to go, but now we’ve agreed to leave the kids with my MIL and have a date afternoon, so darn, I can’t save 30-50% off on yarn …
The latest in my stash collection: my remaining 2 skeins of Filatura di Crosa 127 print. I made a Red Scarf with only two. I do really like this yarn, but I’m not sure what I’m going to do with it. Skeins accounted for: 46
