We Don't Need No Stinkin' Glasses...

So if there are way too many funky errors in this post, it's because my "eyes," that wonderful combination of plastic and metal, are somewhere else, and it's too early for me to go turning on all the lights and doing a thorough search.

It is simply amazing how much I can do without my eyes. Training for later life? Let's not go there.


So Xmas...spent the eve in Kent. Had yummy tamales and champurado (think an uber-thick hot chocolate...made thick from the corn masa you mix with the milk).

I have been inundated with Hello Kitty this year! I don't think I've ever owned this much pink as an adult! I'm not complaining. Badtz Maru might be a wee bit jealous that he has to share space with the kitty, but yeah, they don't make Badtz slippers, mugs, license plate covers, note pads, magnets...I'm missing stuff but yeah, I mentioned the early thing.

I'm not linking this morning either, sorry, it's all the squinting, but maybe you remember me hoping my brother's MONSTRO hat would be big enough?

It's not.

Disappointed is an understatement.

I'm either waiting for the hat to come back, or the measurements my mom said she would take and I'll have another stab at it with the leftover yarn. I'm hoping the original comes back...I don't have enough to make a whole new one in the same color scheme, and I don't really have the gumption to travel up to the yarn store where I first found the Dalegarn as it is no longer all that close to me...it used to be on my way to/from my receptionist assignment...that would be completely opposite of where I travel now.

Complain, complain, complain, sorry.

Here, I'll leave you with this little bit of "6 degrees of separation." Well, more like 39 or so as my Best Friend From High School (the acronym made it look like "boyfriend") has dropped off the face of the earth again...she tends to do this every once in a while...ANYHOW, her husband/his company does the sound/score for Battlestar Galactica. No lie. It gives me goosehives :).

It's not big enough!?! Holy crap, you'll need to post a picture of this giant head.

That's too bad your brother's hat didn't fit. How aggrevating!
