And you can knit while you stand in line. November 6, 2006

I know there hasn’t been much knitting content around here lately (or any content at all, for that matter). There are knitting progress pictures someplace which I will post when I can locate them, but everything I’m working on right now is some kind of super-seecrud project, so I can’t tell you much about the stuff. (Starsky is still in the time-out corner — I’m working my way around to forgiving it for allowing me to mess up the neck and shoulder shaping on one of the fronts. Also, searching for my attention span in order to get it right next time.)

Meanwhile, in case you haven’t heard it from eleventy-thousand other people already, tomorrow is Election Day in the US. If you’re not registered to vote right now, well, you’re out of luck for this election, but if you need to know where your polling place is or what questions are on the ballot, check out Vote411.org from the League of Women Voters (we love the League of Women Voters).

I’d like to be one of those noble people who says: “Just get out there and vote! I don’t care who you vote for!”

I’m not. I care who you vote for. But I’ve decided to try to be the bigger person and conserve my Big Meanieness until after the election. (Okay, I’m always the bigger person…. I’m trying to be one of those noble people.) So go. Vote for whomever you want. We’ll discuss the wisdom of your choice later.

I did not want my tombstone to read, ‘She kept a really clean house.’ I think I’d like them to remember me by saying, ‘She opened government to everyone.’

I grew up in southern Connecticut, the part of the state that’s made up of lots of bedroom communities of New York City. While I spend more time in the Boston area these days because lots of my friends live there (more on that tomorrow), for me The City is always New York. This is for The City today, from Bruce Springsteen’s Into the Fire:

May your strength give us strength
May your faith give us faith
May your hope give us hope
May your love give us love

May your love bring us love

I didn’t mean to disappear, but Life got in the way this week.  (Memo to People Who Take Other People’s Stuff: You Suck.)  I’m taking a couple of days away from Life this Labor Day weekend, but I promise to be back to the grindstone soon.  Perhaps even with pictures, if I can remedy the unwillingly-separated-from-my-camera situation relatively quickly.

In the meantime, you should visit Theresa’s blog.  She took the summer off to hang out by the pool, but she’s back now.  And Laura won The Amazing Lace Challenge #6!  Yay, Laura!  Yay, Other People’s Blogs to Distract You With!
