A meter for Peter.

So, I just wrote this great post with all the pictures I took and great stories and great everything. And I lost it.


Gone.


Okay, I lied a bit. I did write a great post. However, there were no pictures. This is due to one simple fact. I didn't take any. Well, I took four. Four pictures that suck.


So, I spent the better half of my lunch hour linking to my funny fiber blogging friends who travelled to NY State. I did tell funny stories. But they're gone now, eaten by the internet.


Go see the other funny fiber gals for the fun. If you shake a stick (or just do a google search) you'll hit a whole gaggle of them AND you'll see some glimpses of the Bookish Girl.


So, here's a picture. My first self-portrait Tuesday.

Me snuggling with my honey.





On another note.
(This is going to kill the Google searchers out there trying to get some porn action.)



Has anyone ever seen a measuring tape of the same genre as this, that have a little pee-wee instead of a Pinocchio nose? It is apparently referred to as a Peter Meter. However, a google search has yielded something a bit different than what I was looking for. We discussed this measuring tape this weekend and I think it is just about the funniest thing. Ann said, "Yeah but it only measures 6 inches." and then Cara said, "Even though it says 6 it actually is 4 inches."


See what I mean about the love and the LAUGHING?! There was a lot of laughing.


Johanna has seen one in person (was Dani there too?), she was the source of the original story.


I want one too!

PS - I'm going HERE tonight. Anyone else going to be there?

I'm going to try my best to make it. Hopefully I'll see you there! So, did anyone actually get to sign you? We seem to have skipped over that portion of the weekend? I was looking forward to that, too. Pooh.

Okay, that is my one disappointment about the weekend -- that Stephanie was unable to attend. I thought of her a lot, as I'm sure many did. Do have fun tonight!! I don't even have to say it, I'm sure you will. And so sorry that you lost your post -- mostly sorry for myself, because I'm sure it was a hoot!

ann and i have a vow going - whoever finds the peter meter has to buy one for the other - want in?

if i can't find one, we could all go into business making them - i'm sure that'd be a big seller!

I have been doing the same searches - I keep coming up with solutions to the ever present how-to-get-a-decent-fitting-cock-ring dilema.

How funny! If you find a source you just must share. I'd kill for one! Think I might have to jump in on this self portrait thing.

There's probably some joke about "if you have to measure it....."
But what I really wanted to say was how beautiful the self-portrait photograph is. REALLY.

I want a Peter-meter! If you find one, let me know, heh.

I wish I could have gone to Rhinebeck. Don't worry though, if I had gone, I would have been taking pictures of the sheep and animals rather than people, so most likely my pictures would have sucked too.

Thanks a lot. When I got to the Cara comment, I almost did the tea through the nose trick. Great to see you last night.
If you find one of those PeterMeters, let me know.
