Yesterday when we were waiting for the movie to start, we went to Starbucks, which was right next to a Subway. I noticed one side of their sign when we were driving into the theater parking lot. It said something like "ANY 6" SUB FOR $2 / OH MY GOSH"
And then when we were sitting in Starbucks, I happened to look out the window and see the other side: "ANY 6" SUB FOR $2 / HOLLY COW"

Bend it like Beckham was cute, but had a lot of holes in it. It's a rentable movie, that's for sure. One of the leads was the decoy queen in Phantom Menace, I found out. She looked familiar... but I don't know if it was because of that or because she looked like Winona Ryder.

Yesterday, I crocheted a Whoppers bag. It took only an hour. You see, Whoppers make a tremendous noise, rattling around in their box, and we wanted to make it easier to sneak one of those big ones in. Now we can. It's really ugly too - I should take a picture of it. Cory just lets it hang out of his pocket - it kinda looks like a crocheted beanie all wadded up.

The Whopper bag is my favorite invention this year! We do need to put a big W on the front. Maybe a Wh, like a science thingy.

"Thingy"?

This is why I'm making another thingy of coffee. Arg.

Re:
Heh. I want another thingy of coffee too. Too bad I don't like the drip coffee they make in the cafeteria. And too bad the airpots right here have bitter coffee in 'em. You should make me more coffee and bring it to me.

Yes, pictures!! It sounds really cool, maybe you could make a million bucks selling those.

Re:
I should. I'm going to stick a W (or a WH) on it for Cory, and then I'll take pictures of it. Except we ate almost all the Whoppers (well, CORY DID), so I can't show it in action. Hmm. Maybe we'll just have to go buy more!

Wait -- so Cory's post about the Whoppers bag/nerds at the movie...that, that wasn't just a fantasy thought?

Nope. It was from an email I actually *sent* him! I'll prove it later.

I bet you want one too.

Re:
I have this weird bachelor party gift that my brother's wife gave me.

It's a crochet penis mitten. It's really bizarre -- especially from my brother's WIFE!!

I'm not sure I can stand for any more knitted goods.

Re:
I've seen patterns for that. It seems like yarnies have a weird sense of humor. Thank goodness I didn't inherit it when I learned how to crochet.

And crochet is DIFFERENT from knitting. :P

The way I think:
Crocheting involves yarn.

Knitting involves yarn.



Crocheting = knitting.

Re: The way I think:
Crocheting involves a hook. Knitting involves needles.

That's like saying reading involves paper, and writing involves paper, so reading = writing.

It does though!

You wrote a comment, which I read.

What I read caused me to write a comment back.

Reading = writing.

Re:
You are? That'll be fun.

You can make me anything/everything then! (I'm not picky. Maybe paint me or draw me something to put on my wall.)
