I promise, this post isn’t all about knitting.
Last night was the monthly North chapter Knit At Night Guild meeting, which I had to attend of course because I’m the knitting rockstar representative. We learned how to do different cast-ons. Up until now, I only knew how to do the long-tail cast on, but now I’ve done the knitting cast on, the cable cast on and the crochet cast on, and as an added bonus I learned the E-wrap. Now that I’ve got sock yarn and little DPNs – which one do I use to knit some socks?
After I got home, Mike informed me that the shows I had recorded on the TiVo were probably messed up because the president was on instead. *grumble, grumble* I was happy to discover that it just messed up Joey and Will & Grace, so not much was lost.
Then I decided that as a good, responsible citizen, I should watch the speach. I should know what is going on in my country, so I should know what the president had to say.
I tried. I really did.
I swear, I can’t listen to Bush talk. It was this monotone droning in my ears. Maybe if we amped me up with 10mg of Ritalin like the day I did my Tova testing, I could finally hear him. Last night, it wasn’t happening.
Thank goodness Mac pointed me to Norbizness: The Monsters of Ax Da President Tour 2005.
You want cheap gas. I want it too. Maybe somebody could help a brotha out. There will be no price gouging at gas pumps in America. You’re going to take your reaming by the Saudis straight, with no chaser.
Now I not only know what was said in the speech, but it is translated into words I can truly understand. Now I feel like a good, informed citizen again.
