In the immortal words of the Byrds, “There is a season / turn, turn, turn ” — hang on, wrong part of the song.

As I was saying, in the immortal words of the Byrds, “[there is] a time to be born, a time to die.” For our friend Angi’s iPod Nano, the former was February, 2006, and the latter was now.

The battery in the Nano just wouldn’t hold a charge anymore, which made it less of a portable music player, and more a small, shiny rectangle. Instead of tossing it, she asked if could change the battery for her.

I said sure, why not? I was positive that a stiff shot of liquor would calm my nerves and steady my hands. Besides, it wasn’t like it was my Nano, or anything. gulp.

Keyboard Carwash

Posted by Matty

I’ve been getting ready for my new job, cleaning out my laptop bag and organizing my stuff. I took a look at my work keyboard, and it was kinda filthy. Okay, really filthy. If the CDC were to run tests on it, I’m sure they would quarantine or destroy it.

How would a lazy creative person deal with this situation?

Wii-demption

Posted by Matty

A few months ago, I may have written a post on this site about how I wanted a Nintendo Wii. About how I wanted the Wii so much that it made my belly hurt. In retrospect, maybe the post came off a little whiny.

Oh, yeah.

It’s good to have friends. Even better to have knit friends that will help you cut your knitting with sharp, pointy scissors.

So this is the story of my Melody shawl…

Knitting Fantasies

Posted by Nanc

What is the one thing almost every knitter responds with when asked in a meme “what would you rather be doing” or “if you could be anywhere, where would you be?” That’s right. “Snuggled up in a comfy chair in front of a fire (in a fireplace) knitting.” Would you invite a friend over if you could?
