Aha! Plus, more positive.

So. I have located the battery charger for my camera, and the battery is charging at this very moment. Pictures will be forthcoming.

And, even more amazingly, I am a mere inch and a half of horrid 2×2 rib away from completing the socks of eternity! Next up: finishing baby sweater, knitting a hat for my dad, and then working on Muir, which has languished since I started it last year.

See?

lace detail by you.

Well, it will be something beautiful someday. Hopefully soon (I have to work on my project track record; if this were baseball, I’d be so fired).

And you know what? Jodhaa Akbar is a far superior film when you are not (a) watching a bootleg copy (the bootleg copy made it look as though it was filmed in 1982, and was missing important scenes) and (b) you have all the pertinent subtitles. No, really. “I will make my kingdom shiny,” while amusing, does not quite say the correct thing. I am cheap and will buy the discount versions of things (I swore off bootlegs after I watched Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham with a 3-second delay and stuff missing), but I am completely sold on the actual, fancy, $30 import copy (but I’m still not willing to spend $60 on Dhoom2, Hrithik or no; I’ll see if I can find a used copy somewhere).

And also, since I am doing *so well* on knitting projects at the moment, here’s what the Chickengoddess emailed me about, and which I’ve added to my Ravelry queue:

Byzantium Socks

(I am knitting the crap out of Constantinople)

Also also, Atlanta is a weird place. Apparently English is difficult even if you speak it as a first language:

The Sexy! by you.

(Seen down the street from the husband’s place of business. It’s a classy part of town, I tell you what. What I like best is the additional emphasis that comes from putting the exclamation point after “hiring” as well as “sexy,” and that it is a particular sexy being hired. There’s also a sign in another part of town that reads “Big Man Package”)

And finally, here is an old photo of me with a trompe l’oeil hat on my head:

tiny hat by you.

You know – ’cause it’s Thursday and all.

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.

    I didn’t know you were having such a difficult time getting bollywood movies; let me know what you want and I can get them for you on Devon. There’s a reputable store that sells legitimate DVDs at normal prices.

      Oh, no! I’m not having trouble; I am merely cheap and unwilling to Netflix anything.

      The only one I can’t get at the moment is Raab Ne Bana Di Jodi, but only because it’s not out. I have a guy here in Atlanta who gives good discounts when you buy more than one movie at a time, so I save up and then buy a bunch.

      I had been buying bootlegs, but gave up on those because (a) I felt bad and (b) the subtitles were crap.

      Thanks, though (and you can get me movies if you need an excuse to go to Devon)!

    I love the little sign on the wall of the place that says “Live Girls”.

    Well, gee howdy! I’d hope so!

    That’s ok.. I misread the sign and thought it said “HO permit required”. I was like.. wow, they are strict- I didn’t know you needed a permit for that!
