I gotta testify if you’re extra fly
…Kanye West 2006
And Ms. Bliss – YOU are the Flyest of them all.
I became a true believer stitch-by-stitch, wedgie row-by-row while knitting this *shawl* [that will become a collar]. Flaming enthusiasm was doused by fickle faithlessness. I burnt hot; I burnt cold. It took much longer than I planned. It almost spent time under the couch in a timeout. But the lust for somethinng NEW threw me back in the game. I’m still not sure I get it – but I don’t have to – the loveliness, the symmetry, is quite enjoyable all the same.
Spurring me on were the Grammys. In-between numbers [with occasional johnnyjumpup dancing] I wacked out the last two pattern repeats ending almost-in-time with the spirited duet of Jamie Fox and Kanye West on”Golddigger”. I especially found the Drum Corps stuff amusing and wonderful being a big fan of D&B. My day job lands me at a lot of parade shoots and I’ve been spotted in the wild shaking the groove thing in public More Than Once to any especially spirited high school marching band…
And people, I must say, your astute Poll voting was RIGHT ON! Green Day took the award for “Boulevard of Broken Dreams”. But Uhhuh. Hello O.C.!:
“And the polka king, Jimmy Sturr, claimed his 15th Grammy, this time for “Shake, Rattle and Polka!” (Rounder). The victory pulled him into a tie for Grammys won with the decidedly better-known Yo-Yo Ma and Itzhak Perlman.”
