Circa 10 am:
As the news and weather reports will tell you, today was the real deal. A real snow day!!
It is now 3:56pm and I've been home all day, save for about an hour and a half when I was at school. It was actually our instructor that alerted us that we had thde day off, thanks to announcements on the televisions in the IBM building.
So I spent the day at home, shovelling snow, and working on a fuzzy felted mitten. I hadn't noticed the true colour of the woolen yarn when I picked it out of the bargain bin at Knitworks on Kingsway. I thought it was plain black, 75% wool, 25% viscose. ~$15 for a good bag full. When I picked a skein out of the bag today, however, it was this beautiful dark blue with bits of purple and woodsy green in it. Awesome man!
It's going to be a pretty mitten.
Going to make myself a mug of Ghirardellis' hot chocolate mocha. Laters.
What is it with these Korean / Japanese Mandarin oranges? Is there such thing as a Japanese Mandarin? A Korean Mandarin? Are these oranges bilingual? Trilingual? Do they have accents? Dual citizenships?
Yeah. Can you say stark-raving BORED?
I've been working on the mitten all day. It is one HUGE mitten. I'll get a picture up this week on the project page.
Michael with the funny brows can't say "three" or "thirty" or "hypothalamus". It comes out as "free", "ferty", and "hypofalamus". My Mark can't say "cinnamon", "synonym", or "feminine". It just comes out funny, and I end up cracking up at his expense. ..So he laughs along.
Both speak English fluently, with English basically as a first language. Both are educated, intelligent, blah blah blah. They just have a problem with producing those sounds.
Do you? I don't.
