A Fool and His Manny

on September 29, 2017

This is probably mean. But it’s late, and I need an hour of television and knitting or I’ll go out of my mind.  I finished a book last night–which is why I didn’t blog, because… you know… this… close… and also, Mate left for Germany, and I was missing him so the less introspection the… Read More

So, ZoomBoy, how was school?

on September 21, 2017

So I got a new order of yarn in the mail–it’s called Halloweentown (I think) and it’s from Nerd Girl Yarns.   Now, if you go to the page and look around, you’ll realize that they dye yarns in fandoms– so, a lot of their yarns are named after, say, characters or lines from Dr. Who… Read More

Movies–ALL movies, he has no particular favorites. In my memory, I only remember him NOT watching four or five movies to the end. But he does have a few favorites, movies or television shows he’ll stop anything for, stay up late for, tape and watch over and over again.    You’ve Got e-Mail Sleepless In… Read More
