The Hokey Pokey - Shakespearean Style
Put your left foot in,
Your left foot out,
Your left foot in,
And shake it all about.
You do the hokey pokey
And turn yourself around
That's what it's all about.
O proud left foot, that ventures quick within
Then soon upon a backward journey lithe.
Anon, once more the gesture, then begin:
Command sinistral pedestal to writhe.
Commence thou then the fervid Hokey-Poke.
A mad gyration, hips in wanton swirl.
To spin! A wilde release from heaven's yoke.
Blessed dervish! Surely canst go, girl.
The Hoke, the poke -- banish now thy doubt.
Verily, I say, 'tis what it's all about.
ok, now to some irritation. i realized tuesday night that liam did not have a hat that fit him (he's growing too damned fast, i tell you!) so, i found some yarn he had picked out last year, and made a fast hat:
this isn't showing the colors very well. it does go in rainbow progression, but it shows more green than this does. i started this yesterday morning, and finished it last night just before supper. it's in red heart grande. (gotta love machine washable). now, last night, when i showed liam, he said cool! i had made it too big for me (it covered my eyes) and it still barely fit him. just covered his ears. he said he liked it.
however, this morning, after he'd taken his shower, and gotten dressed for school, i told him to put his hat on, since his hair was wet and it was 10F outside (yeah, damned cold!). "I can't wear that, mom! It's embarassing!" what happend to cool? i got him to wear it in the car, but he took it off once we got to school. i told him to at least take it with him. however, after i dropped it off, i found it on the floor behind the passenger seat in the van. growl. ingrate. i'm tempted to go back to school, and take it into the office, and ask to deliver it to him in class! now THAT is embarassing, lol.
anyway, i had some of this left, so i decided to use it with some double-stranded mohair stuff, and i'm making another hat for dulaan. the only reason why i had the mohair double-stranded is that it came to me that way. i had bought it at the used store in blair that way. i miss that store. they always had something interesting in the craft section. i got 3 balls of mohair that way.
so, i'm eagerly awaiting sit & knit tonight. haven't been in 2 weeks, and the last time i did, it was only me, and carin, until she had to go to work, and tara, who ended up working on her SWG sale stuff. i hear there will be many more there tonight. yippee!
What I'm reading now:
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Raising and Keeping Dragons
Angels and Demons
i know, i know, i'm slowing down. i'll fix that, lol.
