Fasten Your Seat Belts

Fasten your seat belts puppies, we may be in for a bumpy ride. We are just leaving the Land of Denial and are fast approaching the Land of Hyper-Denial. While in the Land of Hyper-Denial you will enjoy a wondrous, life of knitting fantasy. Need another pair of socks by night-fall, no problem. Two more scarfs by Christmas morning? You got it.

Why, my lads and lassies, while skipping merrily through the pool of knits & purls there is no need for anti-anxiety drugs. All is always well. You have plenty of time, you can do it. Sleep? Who needs it? Life if grand!!!!!

I'm not quite sure. I'm not really sure what has happened. I know I was in the Land of Denial and I remember entering into the Land of Hyper-Denial. I think I've entered into the Land of Who Gives A Flip. Not sure though, it could just be a deeper level of hyper-denial. My knitting progress over the last week or so has been horrible. Almost non-existent.

I think there are possibly two (count 'em), two reasons:

1) I got a laptop for Christmas so I've been either getting it set up or playing with it. Oh my, it is wonderful. I can sit anywhere in the house and still be connected to you. :)

2) I know that January is coming and with the help of A Loose Knit Group I will never, NEVER, N E V E R, find myself in this place again. EVER!!!!! (Come on over and join us!!!!)

I suppose a third reason is that I could have had a crash landing into the Land of Reality. And I've finally realized, it ain't gonna happen so heck, just chalk this one up for experience and enjoy life.

Emma Belle re-wrote some of the words to Frosty the Snowman. She didn't realize she was changing the words, I suppose this is what she heard while listening to the song. She has since changed the words back to normal.

But her 5 year old ears initially heard:

Frosty the Snowman was a jolly happy snow, with a porno pipe and a button nose and his pants made out of cold.

We all about passed a kidney stone on that one!!!!!

Here is hoping you all a Very Merry Christmas!!!!!

Hi Peggy! my seat belt is fastened :)

I have a laptop and you will just LOVE it! I'm sure you can learn how to knit and surf at the same time, I've almost got it mastered! lol!

I just got a laptop too! The next big thing it getting a wireless router so I can play with it while Grim is hogging the computer as well. I hope all is well with you and your family.

When I read the Snowman words I nearly fell out of the chair! A Porno pipe, kids say the funniest things.

Congratulations on the laptop. They really make life so much easier, depending on how you look at it. Because they do take time away from the knitting!

As usual, you have written a delightful blog that reflects how I can feel during these holidays, too. Emma Belle just might end up being a writer one of these days and we can all say we knew her when she was re-writing Christmas carols.
