is what? The Sleeve Express? I spent a total of about 30 minutes knitting yesterday, and I'm already past the elbows on this cardigan. It's a nice break after my stay on the Island.

I did, however, get caught taking photos of yarn and drinks on the front porch and had to explain myself at a barbeque last night. But I think my friends are catching on, since the question was posed as "Were you taking pictures of yarn for your online thing?".

And my friends remember some things about the whole blog world, since someone then brought up the porn site, which led to much explaining on my part and a suggestion that I link to it on the sidebar in the future. I'm going to pass on that, but am still soooo amused whenever that little ditty comes up. Who knew?

And of course, we came home at some ungodly hour and googled and clicked through just to see (really, I still can't believe that other woman didn't) if it was still around. It is. But it seems the other Thea's cleaned things up a bit over there - toned it all down, so to speak. Or more likely, maybe she put all the good pics to a space that isn't free.

Anyways, I digress. And, since it's a holiday weekend, you'll want a little drink to go with your porn. I'm still using my fancy new glasses.

Thanks to Sarah and the girls in the discussion group over there on Ravelry, I've gotten myself a big old bottle of Peach Vodka. And I'm not afraid to use it!

2 oz peach vodka
splash of pear nectar
sliced 1/2 lemon - squeeze the juice in here
ice cubes
Pour sprite over the top

That was goood. I'm being told to call it the Porn Star. Not sure I am going to.

But notice, I've left the name off for now.

12 June and I can get my own Peach vodka! (being on call stinks sometimes...well except for the $) Now to finish some stuff around here and I can try to get off the island too.

ha! That's a great story. I just read it to my husband and no we won't be googling. It's too early in the morning to see anyone's brazillian!

I'm sure my neigbours think I'm mad when I'm wandering around the garden taking photos of myself wearing some heavy sweater in the middle of summer.

What you need is some feijoa vodka! (google it).

You are too funny! :0)

OMG - I wasn't reading your blog back in early 2008 when you posted about the whole "porn" thing...that is one of the funniest thing I've ever read!

Oooooh my goodness, that is hilarious! I didn't click through because I'd have a tough time explaining the appearance of such a site on my computer's 'net history (though I did share an office at one time with a gal who had similar, but slightly clothed, photos of herself up all over the internet that she looked at all the time and she never got in trouble)...but I'm cracking up nonetheless. And the lady who didn't click least she was ok with it! HA!

I know that I should be focused on the porn thing, but I'm distracted by my crush on the the yarn in the photo. Can you tell me what kind it is?

I'm sure my neigbours think I'm mad when I'm roaming around the lawn capturing of myself dressed in some large jacket in the center of summer months.
