A blog about my life, knitting, and other stuff.

Darn You, Twitter

Twitter has been stealing my blog fodder. I don't mean that anyone is taking stuff from my blog. I mean that when strange, funny, or oddly entertaining things happen in my life, and I can express them in 140 characters or less, I tweet about them instead of blogging. Which pretty much just leaves knitting content for the blog and I can only knit so fast.
Some things you've been missing.
  • Older son didn't come home from school on Friday. He forgot his phone and never showed up. I had no way of reaching him. I was freaking out when we sauntered in an hour later. There was a lot of yelling and crying.

  • Older son was home sick on Monday. In the middle of his cello practice he paused and yelled, "MOOOOOMMM, what's hydrocephalus?" I cannot explain why he asked or what he did with the information.

  • We have started hosting a Glee potluck every Sunday night. A group of friends come over for a potluck dinner then we watch Glee and then play a little Rock Band.

  • We have Beatles Rockband. And it's awesome.

  • Younger son doesn't think the Beatles are all that great and really wants a Weezer Rockband. This past Sunday he wrote a letter to MTV Games and EA, the makers of Rockband, to ask if they would make a Weezer Rockband.

  • We have continued on the cleaning and organizing streak. There is still much to do.

  • Wes and I have a lot of silly exchanges on Twitter.

Okay, I think you're kind of caught up. Except for missing lots of tweets saying that I'm tired, need coffee, have a headache, should be working, etc.

The Featherweight Cardigan is moving along. I separated the arms last night and knit an inch on the body. I'm watching the yarn carefully. I think this might end up being another short-sleeved sweater.
