Just for fun. I am a Fried Fruit Pie (which is sadly quite appropriate) and married to a Bridge Mix. Both descriptions are eerily accurate.

We had date night last night and went to see Miss Congeniality 2: Armed and Fabulous. It was a fun movie, and I love that the women don't need men to rescue them at all. GB even said it was better than the first (though, come to think of it, I don't know how he feels about the first movie, so maybe that's not terribly high praise.) I knew I was the nerdiest member of the audience when I was the only one who chuckled at a Shakespeare joke (William Shatner's character says "I've done lots of theatre, I even played Iago in Twelfth Night") but I discovered who the dumbest member of the audience was as well, when we discover a character's allergies (dogs, cats, dairy, dust) and Sandra Bullock says "it must have been hard growing up, not being able to have a dog, or cat, or ice cream... or dust" and someone in the audience said "why would you want dust?"

I just hope she woke up at three this morning and said "OOOOOHHHHHH".

Knitting class was good this morning. I had a new student who was so blindly trusting I would almost believe she was a ringer. She came in struggling with a cast on, and able to knit, never having purled. I talked her through a variety of things, and by the end of the class she'd made garter, st-st, ribbing, two different lace patterns (using YO and K2tog) and a small cable. It was great fun to see her stop a row, look at what she'd done, and just swell with pride.

And because of Date Night, I didn't knit last night, so here's a closer look at the yarn I dyed as it becomes the baby sweater - look ma, no pooling!

I love fruit pies!

I'm a ding dong, which is also sadly appropriate. :-)

Mmmm fried fruit pies.

Sadly I'm a twinkie, it mostly fits but I married an M&M and he sooooo is not.

I bet that person NEVER got the dust thing.

I'm a ding-dong too, married to a cheese puff. At least the marriage should turn out well (good to know, after 10 years)... nothing else seems quite right, however. : )

Seems I should have married a ding-dong or oreo......being a cheesepuff. I married an M&M but he's nothing like one.

Really great dye job of the class for that.

Amie that was fun, I'm an M&M. It says I should never marry a Gummi - beside the fact that I can't stand gummi candy, my all-time most disastrous relationship was with a Gummi, so it must know whereof it speaks!
