Finally! Without further ado, here they are:

1. Old snapshots of people I don’t know. I love to go to antique stores and rifle through the big boxes of photographs that are inevitably crammed in amongst actual useful stuff. I like the ones that are family snapshots, especially if taken with silver emulsion film. I have some really wonderful ones, most of which I picked up for less than $5. I think that at some point I will stick them up all over my living room and make up stories about my “relatives” when people come to visit. I often wonder, though – who are these people, and why do their loved ones not have the photos any more?

2. Horrible sweaters (see photo above). I don’t like to knit them, don’t like to wear them, but they make me very happy anyway. Wil Wheaton’s clown sweater, anyone? It’s the best.

3. Recycled sari yarn. I do not own any of this yet, but it’s really beautiful. It’s the one fiber that makes me want to spin (a lady at SCA this past week had some wool with bits of sari silk and shiny fibers mixed in, and I couldn’t stop petting it).

4. The drive-in. Last night I went to see the Sex & The City movie with Jennie, and it was fantastic. I much prefer seeing movies from my own car than wondering who sat in the theater seat before me and dealing with other people. I don’t like dealing with other people. It was interesting, though, to be watching a film about glamorous people in New York while sitting in a tiny car in Atlanta’s hinterland.

5. Fridays. Not the restaurant; the end of the week. Boy, howdy. Always.

Have a great weekend, folks!

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.
