I'm strange and so is my dad

I realized last night that in the middle of a heat wave I was knitting a cashmere blend sweater. What the heck was I thinking? I'm not going to wear this thing for another 4-6 months but I'm probably going to be done with it in about 1-3 weeks. I really am special.

I also realized last night that my dad is bored. I haven't figured out what is boring him yet (work, new wife, life in general...who knows) but I know he's bored. My dad isn't a talker. You call him to say "I'm not dead and I love you. How are you?" that's about it. This is the second week in a row that he has called to chat. Each time we chat for somewhere around 30mins to an hour. This is so not like my dad. He only does this when he is unhappy with something in his life but doesn't want to address the problem, he calls me to talk about anything else but the problem. I wonder what could be up...well Sunday is his birthday and father's day so I'll have the whole day to try and figure out whats wrong with him. Maybe he just needs a nice old man cardi. Maybe I'll make him one to cheer him up.

Oh and Sheri really needs to stop updating over at The Loopy Ewe because I'm going on vacation in exactly a week - I can't be broke! Luckily I'm doing that whole secret pal swap this so I can buy some things (can, haha, I already did) for her and just fondle them a whole lot before sending them off.

I'm off to see Death Cab tonight, let's see if I can "bump" into Ben Gibbard...

Hmm, maybe your dad needs a cashmere sweater too. Hope you have fun on vacation

Not so odd; I've been knitting with cashmere too! I think it's so sweet that you are concerned about your dad. Maybe he just enjoys chatting with you...

Cashmere sounds great whatever the weather. I hope you can figure out your Dads problem.
