Closest Blue Book Meme
1. Grab the nearest book with a blue cover.
2. Open the book to page 86.
3. Find the first full paragraph.
4. Post the text in your journal along with these instructions.
5. Don’t search around and look for the coolest book you can find, just the closest blue book. (I'll admit to skipping by Rachel Ray's 30-Minute Get Real paragraphs in there.)

"Of bronze and blaze
The north, tonight!
So adequate its forms,
So preconcerted with itself,
So distant to alarms, -
An unconcern so sovereign
To universe, or me,
It paints my simple spirit
With tints of majesty,
Till I take vaster attitudes,
And strut upon my stem,
Disdaining men and oxygen,
For arrogance of them.

My splendors are menagerie;
But their completeless show
Will entertain the centuries
When I am, long ago,
An island in dishonored grass,
Whom none but daisies know."

-XIV, Emily Dickinson

I'll admit freely that I'm not a poetry person.  I wish I was but I'm not.  I can appreciate the beauty of the words and form, but my brain just keeps saying "Just say what you're trying to say!!!  SPIT IT OUT!"

monday night hubby and i went to see Cars.


it was SO much fun.  it was a little long for a Pixar - but i think i was only uber-aware of that because i had to pee SO badly. 

if i had to name one best part of the movie i couldn't.

but i did love Click & Clack from Car Talk being involved.

and i loved the stuff during the credits.

and i really loved the tractor cows. :)

definitely worth the moola spent.

sooo - i do knit.   i am a knitter.

this past sunday i made a decision.  here it is.  i've decided that decreasing the size of my stash is of upmost importance.  therefore i have started to make these:

i'm going to keep doing these with random balls & half skeins of yarn i've got taking up space.  hopefully they'll all be pretty - but that's really not the point.  i'll eventually put them all together and make a blanket.  blankets are warm even if they're not pretty.

over the past couple of weeks i've been working on baby stuff.  i've knit all the pieces for the Aran Pullover from Knitting for Baby, and i've started the Child's Placket-Neck Pullover from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. pictures on the flickr. 

i also have an ongoing scarf project.  i'm knitting the My So-Called Scarf with just plain Fisherman's Wool.  but as i'm seeing how it looks i'm CRAVING some Manos to try with this pattern. 

time to eat lunch.
