suck this...

I mean, I got a new vacuum cleaner. The other one had a variety of problems and with four cats and two dogs, 2 1/2 weeks of no vacuum means certain death from "fur-lung." We were dying. So, this new "turbo" bagless would probably shred a small poodle like a food processor. I am afraid of it. It doesn't get hung on the throw-rug fringe and make an awful burning smell like the old one, it rips the fringe out and afterward laughs like Linda Blair in the Exorcist. It likes to dismember things. The cats scattered like a surprise sneeze when I revved up the 12 amp motor. Poof! They know evil when they see it.

We finally went out to see Big Fish, so here's my review. You're either going to love it and cry your eyes out, or you are not going to get it and be bored. It's not a typical Tim Burton movie, although there are plenty of fantasy elements to the story. If you get it, you'll love it. I thought it was really touching in a way I would not forget anytime soon. It's been a long time since my heart hurt that bad during a movie. But, I can't really say that it was a sad movie. If you haven't seen it, you should. If you don't like it, well come on over and I'll show you my vacuum cleaner...

Holy shate. I might actually finish something in the giant UFO stash. I started this cute little duffle bag by Mags Kandis more than a year ago and, as is tradition in my house, let it languish--er, I mean "season"--in a project bag for at least a year. So, I'm really close to finishing it. And I now I'm pretty sure I hate intarsia. In fact I cheated and you can tell. For some reason I don't care and I can't figure out why. Usually I'm kind of anal about visible mistakes. Even worse, I got so cocky I finished out the intarsia hearts how I saw fit, completely ignoring the chart and doing it by sight. Eh, who cares. I'm a freak, what do you expect?

I guess I need to be putting up some Ebay items since I bought a new vacuum cleaner. Can't have more going out than coming in you know!

I don't know if you've noticed, but I did find a cheap photoblog and there's a link to it right under my 100 things link if you are so inclined. It ain't no gallery of fine images, but mostly a record of projects, ideas, pets, friends and family, etc.

Later, taters. Hope you've all had a great weekend and that you're "fine as frog's hair," as one local used to say to me. Gawd, I love the South.
