My wit has been redirected

Little sister showed up here. So I've had someone to banter with.

Which has left all of you rather high and dry. I'll try to close the gap.

We've discussed everything from how weird it is to like lima beans to what is most amazing about the ranch.

We've talked about how retarded the music is that gets plopped onto the end credits of most movies. For instance, "The Jacket" was an awesome thriller/romance movie with a hard edge and they paste this truly sappy music over the credits. What gives?

We've talked about whether or not Quentin Tarantino's Grindhouse Features are worth watching (so far only Deathproof was, we think, and mostly because of the kick-ass song "Chick Habit", which you'll find in my MySpace songs and is the PERFECT end credits song for a revenge-on-a-serial-murderer-of-young-women story. So much more perfect for the story than anything else about that movie was. Kind of odd style.)

We've talked about whether or not knitting is better than crochet, and the merits of both. Knitwork looks good on both sides, makes more things possible, and allows more complex patterns whereas crochet is faster, easier, has more cutesy patterns and is more durable.

We've talked about coffee. Lots of talk about coffee. Mmmmmmm. Yummy yummy coffee.

But mostly we've talked about the fact that I have to get back to work. I've been idle absolutely NEVER lately. I don't talk to ANY of you anymore, I'm just trying to get my entire to-do list done in the increasingly short amount of time before my children arrive from Florida.


  1. So if I tried to learn crochet, and only succeeded in making a loooong chain and a sort of glob thing that had no straight edges, then I shouldn't try knitting instead, because knitting is even harder?

  2. desi Says:

    @SomethingNice Ha ha! Well, try working with someone who already knows how to crochet. Knitting is more delicate work, because a slipped stitch can make the whole thing unravel. But crochet is generally easier for beginners, I think. I've heard the opposite from others. It's your call. Try both and practice a lot if it matters to you.
