A Happy Monday to you all

This should be suitably rambly since my mind is not exactly focusing on anything today. So....
I'm sitting at the front desk today so that the usual gal (I'm the unusual gal) could get her car fixed. I brought my knitting since her computer has Windows Vista, which sucks, and I can't get work done with folks traipsing in and out all day. It's been pretty productive since the project I'm on is relatively repetitive.

I was talking to my Mom yesterday (you knew that) and she was telling me about my 9 1/2 year old nephew which somehow led to a discussion of television and the whole digital TV thing. I told her I was boycotting the whole digital revolution because, frankly, I think it's bullshit that I have to buy a converter to get "free" TV. Besides, I'll probably be happier without it and maybe even get to bed at a decent hour. So Mom in her typically subtle way said, "Yeah, think of what you'll get done--more reading, more knitting....more housekeeping." Really Mom? Have you met me?
I told her as much and countered with, "A mother can dream, can't she?" Dream on, Joanie.

I have fallen in love with the work of Edward Monkton. I found him via Google's artist themed homepages (check 'em out. There are some cool new ones.) I think I have found my next tattoo, although I won't tell you which one. It'll be a surprise. You can probably guess if you know me. You can also order greeting cards here, which are priced for the UK, but worth the rate of exchange in my opinion.

Well, look at the time. My how time flies when you're knitting and flirting with adorable offsite employees who only come in once a week but who have the cutest dimples ever. See ya!

Dude! I was thinking Edward Monkton - never heard of him. But yeah, I have his book, and one of the cards either Penguin of Death or the Underpants one. I cant remember. But yay, I love his work.

Let me know if you want anything buying and sending - might work out cheaper...

Thanks for introducing me to Edward. I dig his sense of humor and style. Mad hamsters and take your tablets. His work made me smile

Knitting at work. I can only dream.

Hey, if you give up on your boycott, I got two "TV Converter Box Coupon Program" cards, each one good for $40 toward the purchase of an eligible converter box. No, I do NOT know why I applied for the cards, but I did, I have 'em, and I don't need them.
