I'm feeling much better now ...

... thanks everyone for all the 'get better soon' wishes! My cold seems to have dried up over the past weekend, and I sure am glad!

Since I was feeling sorry for myself, I decided an evening out (with pockets full of kleenex, naturally) at the movies was in order last weekend. I planned to see "Eight Below", but -- to my surprise -- it was sold out. I started to walk out of the theatre and was accosted by some zealot spouting off about the evils of homosexuality, and how gay people can change their ways if they simply down on their knees and ask the Lord to take their gayness away. Made me see red. So, I decided on the spot that I needed to see "Brokeback Mountain" again -- I went opening night and loved it -- and told said zealot that he had helped me decide to go back inside and watch one of the most touching stories about enduring love to grace the silver screen. Then I told him what I thought about HIM! Maybe I'll get to see "Eight Below" this coming weekend!

Anyone know what's happening with Lewiscraft ? I heard a while back the chain was sold -- but didn't hear to who -- and apparently there's a fabulous clearance sale happening in our local store. Does this mean they're going to disappear? Does this mean I might have to resort to craft shopping at [shudder] Walmart?

Darn good thing there's a nice little yarn shop downtown! I made a stop there last weekend to stock up on sock yarn (having completely run out, if you can imagine!) and was introduced to Darlene's two delightful yarn shop companions. You know it doesn't take much coaxing to convince me to fall for the pooch (Golden Lab variety), but I wasn't so sure about the little prickly guy. I've never met a hedgehog up close and personal before, have you? He really was a cute little character -- about the size of your closed fist when napping and about as long as your flat open hand when awake. Very sweet little nose and paws! Hmmm ... I wonder what my boys (Tackle and Vido the Goldfish Bros.) would think of a little hedgehog playmate???

Soooooo, I should be busy doing term paper research, not blogging. What can I say? Tuesdays are for procrastination ... right? Have a good week, all!

I heard through some other blogs that Lewiscraft is going out of business.

I didn't know Darlene had a hedgehog! I'll have stop by and see. It'll be a good excuse ;)

Good for you, Ma, telling that ignoramus what for! I would prolly have done the same thing in your shoes ...

Hedgehogs are sooooo cute and surprisingly soft!

Okay, I should stop procrastinating my term paper! Love ya ...
