Happy Days

In the interest of making certain that I don't have to pay royalties or anything on this, the following should NOT be sung to a familiar tune traditionally associated with Natal Events:


Happy No More Rummy Day to US!!!
Happy No More Rummy Day to US!!!
Happy No More Rummy Day Everybody!!!!!!
Happy No More Rummy Day To Ussssssssssssssssssssss!!!

Oh and.

Happy Birthday To You
Happy Birthday To You
Happy Birthday Dear Leandra!!!
Happy Birthday To You.

Today is the first day of the rest of my blog.

I read where they found the body of one of those 3 mountainclimber guys on Mt. Hood. I'd hoped for better news, but yesterday while Lea was giving me the play-by-play off CNN over the phone (I don't have cable - I never watch TV), something in my gut knew that those guys weren't gonna have made it.

What an awful thing to have happen right before the Winter Holiday of their choice. My condolances to their families.

I'm sending out packages today and tomorrow. Some will surprise people, I think. I hope so, anyhow.

I have to make Jello salad for the Holiday Party at work. I'm thinking of making multi-colored jello cubes and then mixing them in with whipped creme. Or something.

I have only ONE resolution I'm making this year. I hope I can keep it. I really do. I want to learn how to spin wool or other fibers into thread. I know it's rather archaic, but I wanna know how.

Ok - EVERYONE head on over to Leandra's Blog and wish her Happy Birthday. Today is a "milestone" birthday for her, I hear she's scheduled an all-day depression to celebrate it, so go be nice and FORCE her to smile!!!

I've heard that spinning is a very relaxing hobby. Will you weave or knit or crochet with the results? That would be an heirloom you are making. Have fun at your party.

When I was in the Andes some years ago I saw women using a drop spindle to make yarn. It was fascinating. I've always wanted to know how to do that as well, just never got around to it.

Milestone my ass. Millstone is more like it. I am sulking even as we speak.

I really don't know what I'd make, Mary. I like the idea of weaving, but I haven't a loom and anything I'd make would probably be kind of yucky that way.

Depending on the thickness of the finished product, I'd either knit or crochet, most likely. Knitting if it were too fine, since I could double or treble the thread and work like that - crochet if it was thick enough. I can't do thread-thin crochet - that's what I have Lea for.. *grin*

I know a little about spinning wool, It's pretty interesting.

That J_G, isn't she a sweetheart? I think she that she loves God so much that she wants to have sex with me.

But I don't do sex with Christian monkeys.

Gosh... Jello? That sounds really good, can I have some?

Laurel Ann made me a really good lunch today, I ate more today than than I usually eat in a day, or even two days.

Hugs.

I want to learn how to spin wool or other fibers into thread. You may find some help here. I've written a few times for a computerless friend, with questions, and they've always responded.

j_g is not welcome here, BBC

Her comments can, and WILL and have been removed.

I have enough Xtian asshats in my life without that psycho.

Sewmouse said...

Wow, thanks, Tua! There's a lot of interesting stuff there, and links to more!

I really appreciate it.

A good friend from college once uttered what I consider to be the definitive statement on jello, "...I'm saving that for my old age." Advice I took to heart. Then...I moved to Minnesota.

As to the mountain climbers. I don't understand the sport so I am speaking from ignorance, but I must wonder why they would attempt such a climb right before the holidays. Seems it was a dangerous thing to do even in good weather. I too feel terrible for all concerned in this tragic story.

Pat, they made the decision to do that. So if they got in trouble who's fault is it?

I can't feel very sorry for people like that, I'm more worried about wars and starvation and such. Hugs.
