Thing-a-Day #2

Today's thing-a-day is this cute little eyelet preemie hat. A grandmother in our extended home school community announced that her son and daughter in law were suprised with a 3lber. Out with the needles! The pattern is thanks to Carissa Knits

I used regular old red hear baby yarn and the recommended size 3 needles. I think I'd go down to #1s or #2s if I knit it again (and I'm sure I will!) . My gauge is always loose.

Ok, that's out of the way, on to more important things. I have an public service announcement to make.


Ok, I'm glad I got that off my chest. I know you know what I'm talking about. Lounge pants with pictures of Pepe le Pew on them are NOT meant to be worn to the Wal-hell. Unless of course you mean to warn me of your odiferous state with the character depicted on said pants. Another curious thing is that when I see a young lady with these on, they aren't even cute pants. They appear to be the only pants they own. Grey, dirty, disgusting.

Please girls, take a little more pride in yourself and take a moment to dress properly. I'm a fat girl and it's a pain in my butt to get dressed, literally. If I can do it, so can you.

Now speaking of Wal-Hell. I've noticed in most areas that I've visited that have 2 Wal-marts that there seems to be a "good" wal-mart and a ghetto-mart. Huntington is a perfect example of this. Last night I had to run some donations down to Norway Ave for a friends church rummage sale. On the way home I stopped at the Rt. 60 Wal-hell because I needed some fabric glue. Do you know what's worse than any day at the Rt. 60 Wal-mart? ANY NIGHT AT THE RT. 60 WAL-MART.




It's always a sociology study. Even on a good day it's akin to the Star Wars Cantina. Just go ahead and stop in at about 11pm on a Friday night and you will fear for your life! Wow. Take a friend.... that's all I'm sayin.
Well, that's enough righteous indignation for one post I think. The spell checker still seems to be on the fritz so excuse the horrid spelling mistakes!

Around here, we always say a visit to the Alabama Walmart is good for the self-esteem. No matter how badly you might feel about yourself, after a few minutes in that store, you'll feel thin, beautiful, rich, and well-mannered in comparison to the rest of the shoppers.

My Lord, will people ever get the hang of the fact that PJ pants are NOT REAL CLOTHES. Nor are sweats. Put on some real pants or shorts or even a skirt (if'n you're a girl).

There's a great blog on my blog roll - The West Virginia Surf Report. He has a link to Walmart game he made up - sorta like a Bingo but finding disgusting things in Walmart. You have to check it.

I don't get out of the car...if that helps plead my case...
