At the top of the Dashboard page for WordPress, there is an advertisement for making my blog name my “own domain” for a mere $17 per year. What a deal. I can BUY my own blog name on the innernet and only pay $17 per year. Do I make the check out to “innernet”? How about “My computer blog”? I think I’m just a bit tired of the “own this right now” mentality. When I die and stop paying my $17 per year, does my “own domain” go into the public trust like copyrights? Am I spending too much time thinking about this? I’m thinking that might be the case.
How ya been? I’m doing okey-dokey fine. It’s Tuesday and, once again I am faced with a 10 on Tuesday that I can’t honestly answer. It’s “Name 10 things you make with pumpkin”. Drat. I make nothing with pumpkin. I roasted a cooking pumpkin 3 years ago and froze it. I finally threw it away this past spring. I love a slice of pumpkin pie with whipped cream. After that, you can have the rest of the pie. I’m still waiting for S.R.’s recipe for pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. They were fabulous, but since I have never made them myself, I couldn’t even answer with one thing. I apologize and at the rate I’m going, I’m gonna have to resign from the 10 on Tuesday club due to “a severe lack of connectivity”.
So, thanks for asking, but Grover and Stinky are well. Our weather has turned to the “getting chilly” number on the dial, so Stinky is “sleeping” with me at night. I use the term “sleeping” loosely. She jumps on the bed and attacks my legs. Then, she turns around in circles and then lays down and proceeds to clean her butt. After about 15 minutes, she settles down and rests for an hour. Then, she jumps off the bed and goes to get a drink, or use the facilities, or whatever the heck it is that cats do at night, then she returns and we repeat and rinse. I feel sorry for her because she’s cold, but I’m getting reallyreallyreally tired. Also, I bought her a special bed (recommended by our Cookie) that she rarely uses because it’s effective. Why would the princess, Stinky, stoop to using something that would keep her warm? That lone kernel of brain must get very very lonely.
I know this is a knitting blog, but I haven’t had time to get pictures of the 3″ of knitting that I’ve accomplished this week. I will soon, I promise. And on that note, I will send you to my soundtrack of the day. This is for my sister-in-law. I will admit that I am a fan of some country music. Alot of it is over-produced and too slick for my tastes, but I have to admit that the lyrics in some of the current country music ring of good wordsmithing. That is something I admire. One of those who has the talent is Taylor Swift. Her “Back in December” is a personal favorite, but today’s soundtrack is her immensely popular anit-bullying song “Mean”. Say what you will, but it feels nice to me that a star is actually addressing a huge problem, musically.
Have a great one!!!!
