Misc.

I have been reading the same book for MONTHS (which is to say, it sits on my table and I ignore it), and we didn't watch any Netflix movies for like 6 months (though we have now corrected that!), and I haven't even felt an urge to write lately. But, I'm sure it's just a natural sort of ebb and flow.

At the moment, I'm mostly about crafts - pathetic as that might sound. Mostly, I have been trying to help my mother figure out her new toy: The Cricut (no matter what we do, we can't seem to get it to cut all the way through the cardstock - any suggestions?). But now I'm starting on the Christmas stuff - and you won't even believe what we bought!

I know I have railed against her in the past - and I'm sorry but her doll collection is just scary - but when Marie Osmond is talking crafts on QVC - she seems almost normal (if you don't believe me you can watch the video of it at the link found below for the item).

So, my mom and I went temporarily insane and bought a couple things. We're starting on the punch needle embroidery advent calendar ornaments. I've never done punch needle embroidery before - but it is actually BLESSEDLY mind-numbingly easy. You just sit there and go 'poka-poka' and you forget that you were stressed out 5 minutes ago - and it goes so fast that it makes you feel like you've achieved something (not like my needlepoint project in progress that I will be lucky to finish by 2025).

Also - I found this website that lets you order (more or less) custom made perfume www.ScentDesign.net - it's great! I got a few of the 3 fragrance tubes to try, and am currently in love with the Sandlewood, Vanilla, and Musk combo :)

We all know my politics lean pretty far to the left, so maybe it's only funny to a liberal like me - but I did get a serious giggle out of this Sarah Palin spoof:

I love that punch needle stuff. It is one of those crafts that gives you a ton of praise for very little effort. Like gluing things. Very nice!

That's funny (and this is coming from a moderate). Did you see SNL?

CW - Didn't see SNL first hand, but saw the snippets played over again on tv (been meaning to look for it on youtube, but haven't yet). I really enjoyed the: "I can see Russia from my house" line though :)
