A 49-year-old walks into a bar...

...and orders a drink to go with her lunch. The 20-something waitress says fine, but I need to see an ID. The 49-year-old woman laughs, looks at the 20-something, and says "'re kidding, right?" The 20-something, not laughing, says "...IF YOU APPEAR TO BE UNDER 30, I NEED TO SEE AN ID." Resisting the urge to leap over the bar to kiss the 20-something, the 49-year-old displays the ID in question, then proceeds to call husband to gloat.

I'm still smiling, and I left her a fat tip.

First FO 2008

Finally, I have a FO for 2008

This is the medicine bag for a colleague. It's half a skein of Fleece Artist cashmere/silk, my own design using a Barbera Walker stitch pattern. I'm pretty happy with the way it came out, although if I ever make another one, I will use magic loop, which I only thought of after I was all the way done.
Genius. geesh!


P.S. Ignore messy bookshelves in the background. Spring cleaning is underway at my house.
