just call me seven

Buy a beanie; feed my goodwill habit.

New stuff up on my etsy shop and on sevenbacon. I make hats and scarves and stuff… “Oh, she knits?” “Crochets.” (2 million points if you know the movie that’s from). Uh, yeah. Anyways… I make stuff out of yarn, and I usually just give them to people, but I decided to make my genius available to the general public from now on (hold your applause until the end of the post, please. It’s disruptive to the other readers).Oh, my. I’m weird tonight.

So you want to hear the weirdest thing I’ve ever bought at Goodwill? I know you do, so I’ll tell you: a giant bag of fun size (what’s with that name, anyway? Wouldn’t fun size be, like, as big as your head, or like the length of your arm? I’ve always thought that. A half-size candy bar is no kind of fun at all. Continuing on…) AirHeads. You know, the chewy, fruity candy? It’s a mix of flavors, and it’s kind of a strange mix… it’s half “fruit” flavors and half “sour” flavors, except they only have three different kinds in each category. “Fruit” has Watermelon, Blue Raspberry and Cherry (Hello AirHead makers, where is the White Mystery? Huh? Those are the best. And Strawberry), and “Sour” contains Cherry, Blue Raspberry and Apple (Wha? The Apple came out of nowhere. I didn’t even know they made Apple ones). The weird thing is that the sour ones all have the same wrapper… the only way to tell which flavor you have is by searching for a tiny little picture in the lower corner. It’s the weirdest thing. But dude!! They were $1.29! One Freaking Twenty-Nine. That’s so cheap. So yeah. I never thought I would see the day when I would buy food at Goodwill, but man. Who could resist that deal?

I’ve decided that I’ll put a little widget in the sidebar to keep track of peoples’ points. It’s only fair… if you’re going to go through the trouble of wracking your brain for the answer to whatever random quote I vomit out involuntarily, you should get some recognition out of the deal.  (Done, and done.  Behold it there, on the left.)

I’ll leave you now with my (so far) favorite Lolcat:
Goodnight, y’all.


In Which I Confess My Obsession With Lolcats.

Will I ever be kissed under the mistletoe?

(Hopefully not by a seal, in any case…)

I don’t have anything to say. I seem to have run out of blogging steam. I’ve been thinking about doing the x365 thing… where you write about a person in your life every day for a year. It sounds like fun. If I can think of that many people, I will probably do it. So far, I have… let me check… 68 people. I’ll probably work on it over the next couple weeks and start in January, just for kicks.

I have been so unmotivated to do anything for the last couple of days. I would like to make some purses for people for Christmas, but day after day goes by and I just can’t be bothered to put down my book or get off the computer long enough to cut out the fabric & stuff. I also wanted to make beanies for my cousin’s two kids, and I did start one, but somehow it turned out way too small, and I haven’t felt like continuing on the correctly-sized one I started last Friday. Meh. I hate feeling this way.

More Lolcatz:

I don’t think I’m the only one completely addicted to Lolcats.

It’s so freaking cold around here. I am the She Who Seems To Be Running A Perpetual Fever, and yet the last few days have sapped all the warmth from my bones. I’ve even been sleeping with pants on, for crying out loud. And socks. Holy cow. I haven’t worn socks to bed in more than ten years.

Like I said, I actually have nothing to say. So, goodnight, dear void.
