Holy K1P2, Batman, the election is O-V-E-R
but the Election Coverage continues…

Imagine, on screen, if you will, our intrepid character, Girl Photog, (played with exquisite grace by redhead Marg Helgenberger or honorary redhead, Molly Price), jumping out of the shower, putting on brand new undies (so lucky), shaking her wet hair like a dripping canine, and running for her jeans.

She lands in front of the mirror, grabs a comb, and rakes. Two brush swipes of mascara and a dab of concealer later, and her low-maintenence toilette is complete! OFF to the post-races…

WHAT the…

OMG, those are her eyeballs hanging from her chin! Her bags have moved so far south, her eyebrows have become a beard! That is her hair, not a wighat, still dripping on her collar, and as she pulls on her coat, she notices every d*** nail on both hands is broken!


There’s work to be done and even though the election is *over* it’s not really over for our Girl Howdy! All she needs to get the video rolling is a quick touchup with some lip gloss and a spray of Chanel COCO and SHE’s OFF!

And apparently, I’m off my rocker but being crazy has never prevented ANYONE from Knitting!

I’m making swell progress on my Aran – it has now become my busmate//taxi/standby project and people, for once in my life, NOBODY thinks it’s a scarf!

The Validation! The Thrill of thrilling the public with something they understand! Nobody even hints that it’s CROCHET! WOOT!

It’s the little things, at this point, that are going to have to bring us back around…

    That is gorgeous, I love the stitches you chose.

  2. Trope says:

    Oooh, Viggo. There is a bright side to all this darkness… I am learning to be thankful for the little flashes of joy I get. Like a new project (coming with me tonight!) or that beautiful beautiful picture. (grin!)

  3. Minna says:


    Yes, the Viggo can help to ease the pain.

    Thank you for that.

  4. Silvia says:

    Shazam is indeed fabulous looking, and am glad you slap down those folks who think you’re crocheting or (inexplicably) weaving–on the bus with the loom and a cup o joe, yeah sure.

  5. Cathy says:

    I love brown when it’s so rich and thick and chocolatey like your sweater. You’re inspiring me to learn how to cable. Oh no, more books! more yarn! Will someone figure out how to get me more time for knitting!

    Yes, a little Viggo goes a very long way (and we are very good at sharing), but the pain of Tuesday is not going to go away because it’s really obvious that there are a lot of people out there (and a lot of them are women, with kids and jobs and hair that they are trying to keep one color, parents to take care of and so on and so forth…just like the rest of us)who saw their job on Tuesday as not necessarily voting for Geo. Bush…but to vote against “Kerry and all he stands for” — that is to say, the rest of us. They fear and loath the rest of us. People like you and me, who also have kids and parents to take care of, who are concerned about filth on TV and the internet, who may or may not have conflicted feelings about Iraq, but who still want some reproductive choices for ourselves and our daughters and who feel that sexual preference and whatever legal arrangements couples make between themselves should be their own personal business. A lot of women on Tuesday voted against a lot of other women…decided that it’s OK to punish other women. And THAT is the really painful thought, as far as I am concerned.

    thought you might appreciate this, I’m thinking of sewing in pockets for needles and making it my new carry all projects bag!

  8. tracy says:

    Oh! Bless your pea-pickin’ heart for the Dirty Viggo!

  9. Drool drool drool – oh how I love your cabling! So pwettie! Keep up the great knitting!
