Hey all. Nope, still no kapgar 2.0. So, in the absence of a baby for the time being, how about a Snippet Wednesday?
No, it doesn't seem like an even trade to me either.
Yes, Katie and I are still playing the license plate game. It has slowed down significantly, though, since we only have five states left to find - Hawaii, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
But you can tell we've been playing it too long when we can immediately, almost eerily, recognize plates even from a distance. Driving to work this morning, there was a white plate with royal blue lettering. Four letters, a space with a small logo, and then three numbers. There was a very small name of the place the plate represented. I thought to myself, "that looks like Ontario." It was. Scary.
I have no idea whose plate this is. Just a random one I found on the web to show how nondescript Ontario's plate is otherwise.
Nope, no 9/11 baby. Katie's pick of a Bears vs. Packers gameday baby still rings possible as does Sizzle's pick of Friday the 14th. Any other bets?
Personally, I'm not sure what to think anymore. Oy.
So the Naperville Public Library, where I grew up here in Illinois, released their top book loans of the summer. The top six consisted of all three of The Hunger Games trilogy as well as all three of the 50 Shades of Grey books. My interpretation of this phenomenon?
So much for safe sex.
To the yarn store that Katie had been faithful to for more than a year purchasing supplies and taking classes... a big ol' middle finger right atcha. Why? They were supposed to order Katie more yarn she was using to make a baby blanket. Four months later, when Katie actually needs it, we find out they failed to order it. Everything else on the special order list had been placed and received. Not hers. And they told her they would have the owner call to explain why it wasn't ordered. That hasn't happened either.
Katie knows that part of it is her fault for not following up with them earlier, but still.
And to YarnMarket.com, the company Katie found online this past Monday at 4:30 p.m. who had her yarn in stock and shipped it the next morning and had it waiting on our doorstep this afternoon when we got home from work when she ordered it using one-week standard ground delivery... you've made a new regular customer. THANK YOU. My wife is tearing through the rest of the blanket as I type this.
While Katie knits and I alternate between blogging and reading, we have the holy trilogy of Indiana Jones movies playing in the background. I realize there are officially four movies, but, in my heart, there will only ever be three. Don't try to convince me otherwise.
