I'm Pretty Lively for Almost Being Dead

I can't believe so much time has elapsed since my last post. I figured I'd better say something before you all thought I up and died on you.

For all of you who have been waiting so patiently (and for those of you who are bombarding me with questions), I'm going to say this: Get ready for an announcement. When? Perhaps this week. That's all I'm going to say, and nobody can beat it out of me. I'm too tired and would lie anyway just so you'd let me sleep.

I told Hubster we should celebrate when we fling the doors of the business open. I think, though, that our celebration is going to consist of a sandwich and 24 hours of sleep. I'm such a blast these days. In fact, tonight was the first time in a week I've been out of the house. And for what, you might ask? To buy a typewriter, some more office supplies, and have Chinese food. Now I can barely keep my eyes open, so when I finish with this, I'm hitting the Monster with my bib on so I don't drool on my clean jammies and doze for a while. Then its back to knitting my test socks and my swap socks and and and... shit.

The good news is that I'm almost done. Tomorrow is photography day. We bought this light cube (thank you, Laura) that will allow me to take pictures no matter what time of day it is. I'm sure a lot of you either have them or seen them. It's got a two-sided fabric that you put stuff on (one side is dark the other light) inside the cube, and two quartz lights that go on either side of it. I've got well over 150 skeins to take pictures of, not to mention the notions. Beginning to drool? (hehe) That means I'll be posting again tomorrow night with pictures of the yarny goodness I can show you, not to mention updating the yarn review page. Whew.

You may have noticed a new button on the sidebar. I was awarded the "You Make My Day" award from Corwink of Kelly Girl Knits. Thank you, Corwink! I was blown away by it. I guess there really are people who enjoy reading my drivel. Now I have to nominate some blogs, but I want to think about it before I choose my nominees.

I read something funny in another blog, but it really struck home. The lady who writes this particular blog (I'd tell you who it was if I could remember) was lamenting the fact that she gets endless emails about winning trips to Tahoe, learning foreign languages overnight, needing to take diet pills with Hoodia (that sounds like an STD), ordering the entire set of "Girls Gone Wild", having been selected to disperse $150 million to needy families, and enlarging her penis. I get those all the time in my Google mailbox. If Thor got any larger, I'd have to run away screaming. As for Hoodia, I have enough diseases to last me the rest of my pitiful life, thank you very much. Then there are the endless "letters" from eBay and PayPal telling me that my account has been suspended, and then providing me with a link to update all my information. How considerate!

I realize I'm rambling, and I just noticed that it's getting really difficult to type, let alone see what I've typed. That's my cue to step out. I just wanted to let you all know that I'm fine, that before you know it, you'll be shopping, and that I'll be posting tomorrow. With pictures.

Unless I get Hoodia or Thor chases me out of the house.

hey, I thought I was the only one getting those enlarge my penis emails. I love the ones that ask, do I hang? Cracks me up! I love the you have won, would you send me $300 and come on do these Nigerians think that everyone in the US is a freaking idiot? I feel like replying, you need to send me $300 to get the money together for to send to you! Ha!

LOL!!! Can't wait to see the pictures and for the announcement and for the update on the review blog!

Wait a second... there are only two days left in this week! Unless you mean week as in the next seven days... guess we both could use some more sleep, huh? ;)
