Lolcat addict

I think I am finding new addictions to distract me from my ridiculous wedding. Lolcats are definitely a new one and am part of the lolcat group on ravelry. Someone posted this quiz:


My score on The Which Lolcat Are You? Test:


Sad Cookie Cat

(51% Affectionate, 36% Excitable, 57% Hungry)



You are the classic Shakespearian tragedy of the lolcat universe. The sad story of a baking a cookie, succumbing to gluttony, and in turn consuming the very cookie that was to be offered. Bad grammar ensues.

I was just at our trustee lunch and a guy I used to know pretty well and who I always enjoy catching up with bustled over to me...
"CONGRATULATIONS!" he says.
"Oh thanks" say I, thinking he's heard about the wedding
"So how are you enjoying your pregnancy?" he says
"I am not pregnant and I am going to stamp on your foot very hard" I respond
"I think you should" he says, producing his foot.
What saved it was how indescribably embarrassed he was. I couldn't help but laugh as he apologised and looked utterly gobsmacked at being so tactless. He's an important man too so not the sort of situation he must find himself in too often. I really do feel for him!

Just as well it was today with other good stuff going on in the background and not yesterday when the size 16 trousers in Next were too tight. I am going to try John Lewis today as I hear that expensive clothes have a rather larger interpretation of a 16 than cheaper ones. And why am I clothes shopping? I mean, apart from the usual? Well, I have something cooking that requires a suit and since I am at least a couple of twins past my size 12 ones this means shopping. Should obviously add some spanx pants to my list too...

In knitting news have finished the chevron scarf which though I say it myself is stunningly beautiful. Have cast on a pair of plain magic loop socks in the regia my SP got me. Love the colours. I definitely prefer regia to opal in texture too, although it is probably all being made by the same bod.

Just to let you know I have found that Next runs smaller sizes then what is actually on the label! I bought myself a size 18 jeans knowing darn well that was my size and I can only fit into them now a year on after I lost some weight and am now a 16... I just shop in New Look they say a 16 they mean a 16....

Someone did that to me once -- a woman I didn't really know at a party. That was 30-40 pounds ago (before I started walking-to-save-my-life), but I still remember how awful it made me feel.

I just started reading your blog and am liking it very much. And congratulations, on your wedding!

This girl knows how to knit. I have been following it for some time. What I want to know: is can we knit a sort of safety-sleeve for snakes - especially the Black-Mamba, one of which I am going to track in my next series. Good luck Alex.
