Wednesday Randoms


1. While I was at work today, my landlord's brother bought and installed a shiny new garbage disposal. (And he does some sort of repairy thing for a living, so it wasn't as sketchy as it sounds.) Now, even before it was leaking, the disposal didn't work - we just used it as a regular drain. The repair means both no more leaking AND we can use the disposal as a disposal. I am BEYOND thrilled about this. No, really.

2. Newest TiVo discovery: Bringing Home Baby. Awww. But why do they constantly put bows in this one-day-old's hair?

3. I got my first Rachael Ray cookbook over the weekend, because friends assured me that her books were not as annoying as her TV personality. I made my first dish from it last night - yum! But, of course, it took an hour, not her promised 30 minutes. And - chop raw bacon? How could ANYONE chop raw bacon and finish a recipe that quickly?

4. Believe it or not, I've been crocheting more than knitting recently. I KNOW. I'm sorry. But I was convinced that my (newly cleaned!) living room would not be complete without a ripple afghan, and once I figured out what the heck to do with the stupid edges, it became strangely addictive. (I am convinced that basically all crochet patterns are wrong, though, because I looked at a bunch of ripple patterns and none of them worked as written.)

5. Hee. I just talked to an online friend on the phone for the first time. I never expect southern accents, even when I know perfectly well where the person lives. I can't tell you how many times this has happened.

Crochet is catching on again. I just had someone from work ask for lessons today.

crocheting: I'm still working on the same baby blanket that I started last summer. I'm hoping to have it finished by the end of this summer. I've no surgery in sight, though, so I don't know how successful I'll be. ;)

Chopping raw bacon: The word you are looking for is 'kitchen shears'. I HEART my kitchen shears. SO much faster at that task than even a very nice sharp knife and much less skeevish IMO. Just be careful not to nick yourself, which I've done. Ouch.

Kitchen shears! I have them, I would have never ever thought of that.

I'd crochet, if I could figure it out. They've got some really cute crocheted hats.

And has the garbage disposal lived up to your expectations?! :)
