Little Knits

      No Comments on Little Knits

Now that I’ve finished the shawlette, I’ve been doing a couple of small projects. I just finished one off (the variegated¬†on top), and just cast off on a ‘one evening’ project. At least, that’s what it claims, but I know from past experience that it takes longer. Maybe if all I did was knit rather than knit while doing other… Read more »

Fake BBQ

      No Comments on Fake BBQ

As the picture probably gives away, we are currently at Z’s parents’ house. The menu is burgers and sausages, but the weather means that they were definitely cooked inside. I’ve just had a lovely huge burger, and am letting it settle before going to town on some of the chicken. Mum knows I like her chicken, hee hee. I ended… Read more »

That’s No Kerning Error…

      No Comments on That’s No Kerning Error…

As I was brushing my teeth this morning, I was half-assedly reading the tube. So imagine my vast amusement to find this non-kerning typo, ha ha. We had the same again in the ‘kids’ range, which lacks the error. I should probably contact the manufacturer in question to see if they are aware of the typo, but another part of… Read more »

This Onion is Alarmed

      No Comments on This Onion is Alarmed

One of my favourite signs in this country is the signs you see on doors proclaiming, ‘This door is alarmed‘. While a perfectly valid language in both British and American English, the default connotation in the latter is that something has been startled or upset, rather than yanno, having an alarm. I commented that this onion looked alarm, and Z… Read more »

Away With the Ferries

Ferries, faeries, har har har. Z just commented that Smalls says the former like the latter, which… maybe that’s why this went into my head. I don’t really know. It could also be that I am an eXtreme smart-ass. It’s been a pretty decent day all told. We got up at a reasonable hour this morning, which was good ’cause… Read more »

Outside Again *grumps*

      No Comments on Outside Again *grumps*

Well okay, not a full-on grump. Z proposed that we take the girls down to The Range to see if we could find anything to help keep them occupied on vacation (and the trips to and from). They’ve got water bottles for the car, a set of coloured pencils to share between them, and a couple of little colouring books…. Read more »

All the Burning

      No Comments on All the Burning

It is officially Too Hot™ and Too Bright™ to take a picture outside without me looking like a total doof. Still, trying to share the goodness of my red hair, and that requires outside photos. What can I say, I’m happy with how it looks… but that ‘looks best’ is outside. In the sun. D’oh. *laughs* At least it’ll get… Read more »
