I'm knitting like a maniac. No time to blog.

The spreadsheet had to be fixed - it told me 3 days ago that I was 109% done. I was CLEARLY not 109% done.

Here are some fun links for you:

Are you there God, it's me Margaret Updated! Can you believe this?! I feel lied to. (via Bookslut)

A Pet Store in my neighborhood has been accussed of flashing pornographic chickens. So. Funny. (via Universal Hub)

Sunday - Team Boston closing ceremony Par-tay! Sunday 11:30 am - you bettah be there.

Lied to? How about violated! Perhaps we should change "R is for Rocket" to better represent rocket technology, or re-write Mark Twain and take the smoking out...or ..or...well damnit. How stupid do they think humanity is that they can't understand that there used to be belts, and now there are adhesive pads. Look. There. I explained it in one sentence.
For the love of Pete. That book's a classic.

(Sorry. Maybe too much with the coffee? I'll go mutter and knit in the corner.)

Hey Wendy -- you're really too cute with your spreadsheets, etc. :) Hope you love your Hourglass. Mine fits a little big ... I think with negative chest ease you'll be just right. I sort of have a post-prego tummy pouch that makes negative ease not so great for me ... Anyways ... Hey -- I have a question for you. Can you email me when you get a chance?? Post Sunday is fine!! (that's me,

Breathe, darlin' -- breathe and knit, you can do it! (Sounds an awful lot like a labor coach...)

Have a GREAT TIME this weekend. I can't wait to hear all about it. Please remind someone to take pictures, okay? Be careful with the Sharpies...

"updated" Are You There God? I can't believe it. That's a classic story and the part they changed is really part of the story. (she and her friends had to buy all of the parts!)

Does that mean renegade "old" copies will show up on ebay for through the roof prices?

I won't be able to make the closing party, but I'm sitting here in my finished hat wishing I could get there from here.

"They" should be fired. You don't get to change "Are You There, God?..." Sheesh, cripes, and all that. Leave my coming of age books alone!!!!

Have fun at the party.

Updating Judy Blume should be a crime.

I left a comment in Judy Blume's Guestbook (, and actually got a reply: apparently Judy herself did the updates, and it was done because having to question what a pad with a belt etc. was got in the way of the flow of the story. Which is a good point: apart from Terry Pratchett, where the footnotes are a literary device, footnotes shouldn't appear in fiction, hence not using footnotes.

Course, now I need to find an original and an update to compare & contrast.
