We got tickets for last night's performance of Eric Idle's new 'staged reading' play called What About Dick? OMG! My face hurt from laughing so much! It was fantabulous! With all my favorite comedians, it could hardly not be funny... Billy Connolly, Tracey Ullman, Eddie Izzard, Tim Curry, Emily Mortimer... of course... Eric Idle himself! Wow! It was brilliant! What a privilege. It's moments like that when I'm glad to live in Hollyweird!!!
It's finally gotten chilly enough to face some serious knitting again. I dug out the oh so not punk style knit from the top down black sweater that I've been working on for two years now (off and on!) for Bam. This thing. I tell ya. I had tried to be clever on the bottom ribbing and used the same size needles so it wouldn't get so super ribbing tight. But it looked AWFUL! So I squared up to the task and frogged the bottom and got all those stitches back on the needles. Whew. Nearly done ribbing the bottom now on needles two sizes smaller. After that... only one more sleeve to go and then he can wear it. Finally. I think it is a classic example of how knitting can happen over a loooooooong period of time. That's probably the most positive thing I can say about this UFO.
I have a list of babies to knit things for. I'm opting for nice little washcloths as it's fast and easy and I can actually get it done. If anyone else has super fast ideas? Plus the babies don't outgrow the washcloths. (unlike hats etc.) The list of babies is like.... hmmmmm. ... 10 of them? Somewhere around that number.
HOW SOCIAL CAN YOU BE?
Ya know what almost drives me crazy? All this social networking stuff. How much time can you honestly spend on it and still have a productive day? And what does it get you anyway? Square eyes from staring at your computer? Do we really need to connect with people in this way? Meosphere so I can let everyone know where I've been and what I AM ALL ABOUT. Myspace - more about me. Oh wait, I have a myspace profile for every one of my versions of me... Rock n Roll TV, Punk Knits, Share Ross, Bubble... etc etc. Friendster are still going. Podshow. Facebook. Linked In. Twitter so my 'followers' can know what I'm doing at every moment. The sick thing? I am on EVERY ONE OF THOSE! Okay, I don't exactly maintain them very well. But at one moment, I was suckered in to thinking, yeah! This will make my life better!
Seriously, if I really kept up on all of those networking sites in a way that was active... I would simply not get anything else done! How do folks do it? Are they all teenagers with no lives? We've become a society addicted to expressing who we are and which movies we like and which tv shows we like and what bands are our favorite. Maybe the dude in High Fidelity had it right .... "You're not defined by who you are. You're defined by what you like." Truer words were never spoken.
With that in mind, if you love Billy Connolly, Eric Idle, Eddie Izzard and you love Keith Richards equally along with some Neil Young and the shows Heroes and Damages... chances are... I would probably truly love to know you. LOL!
