Hello Kitty would you like some grape vodka?

On my way to work yesterday I noticed that the Lever House building on Park Avenue had changed their art installation from many naked men to little Hello Kitty fountains. Now these aren’t just any fountain, they're fountains of Hello Kitty tears. Look she’s crying!


Last night my knitting group had a little going away tea party for one of the girls who is leaving us for a month or so. It's very sad. I really like Sarah and will miss her terribly. We went to Alice’s Tea Cup on 64th street and it was a lot of fun. When the tea pots came we noticed (well Jess did) that the little kitty on top had a little ball of yarn. Its almost like they knew we were knitters.

I promised pictures of the new sock so here you go! They’re really comfy. I like this yarn a lot. With the help of my knittery friends I figured out what this colorway reminds me of – Light Brite! These are now my Light Brite socks!

Oh and my Namaste bag came! And at the perfect time as I was starting to feel really shitty and thought I was actually getting sick and not just suffering from allergies. Then my package arrived and for some reason I felt much better! I love it! It’s soft and easy to clean and HUGE. I might be able to fit a whole sweater in here!

Carl came home with vodka tonic ingredients just now and he noticed as he took the bottle out of the bag that he bought grape vodka. We are now experimenting with our nightly drink and its actually good even if it does smells a little like children’s cold medicine.

If you don’t hear from me for a while it’s because of sock wars. I should be receiving the pattern around 6 am tomorrow and I’ve got a lot of knitting to do. Wish me luck!

Enjoy the grape vodka. I once tried the vanilla stuff, and couldn't handle it cause i felt like I was drinking a birthday cake with my cranberry juice.... :-/

Good luck getting work done tomorrow while you have the sock wars pattern! And looking forward to a low key evening with wine on Saturday!

Good luck with sock wars! I'll be cheering you on. I'm so impressed by the whole concept.

Now I have "Turn on the magic with colored lights" stuck in my head. :)

Good luck with the wars!
