I woke up this morning thinking about double increases. An hour before my alarm. Which means today is going to be a winningly good day.
I used this random number generator to find the BIRTHDAY TIME!!!! Contest winners. Although really everyone’s a winner with those birthday memories — engagement! first dates! Shakespeare! surprise hilarity! It was fun to read about traditions that were like my own, like Sandie’s mom letting her choose her birthday meal, and 5elementknitr and Dove‘s scavenger hunt experiences, which featured strongly in my youth.
Of course, there are those who are getting the free stuff. Tanya wins the coffee mug, Mary Kay lip set, and yarn! And Sarah wins the Mary Kay hand lotion set! Hooray! I have emailed both of you for your addresses so the swag can get to you!
Thank you to everyone who played and wished me a happy birthday! It was a really good birthday and I had a great weekend.
I don’t normally talk about politics on this blog, but today is the day before Super Tuesday and I want to put this information out there. At the beginning of the presidential campaign I was a little bit up in the air about which Democratic candidate I liked best (the Republicans not really registering on my radar). Barack Obama is my senator and I’ve loved his record there, but I was also excited about the prospect of Hillary Clinton becoming president because as a woman, who could have a better understanding of women’s reproductive health rights than she? (This is one of my big issues.)
Turns out, Barack Obama has a better understanding of women’s reproductive health rights, and a better understanding of the truth. The former president of the Chicago chapter of NOW explains why she switched her support from Clinton to Obama, and other pro-choice supporters tell why they feel the same way. Is your state part of Super Tuesday? Vote for Obama. Or if you don’t want to, make sure you know why not. In the words of a friend of mine, “Make good choices!”
It’s me! I’m flying along on my green socks…
… with the lovely addition of a C2F cable to keep my interest. I started these socks wanting just something plain and mindless and easy, but plain stockinette all the way up the leg is NOT easy to focus on. Add a cute little cable and suddenly I’m zooming through the 5 plain rounds to get to the 6th round when I get to cable. Hooray!
Plus this gets me on my way to a more cabley 2008. Heck yes I’m reaching that goal.
