Buildin’ stuff

Posted by Matty

I needed a new computer for an upcoming project at home (hereafter referred to as “Project X”). Instead of going out to Best Buy or Circuit City, I figured that I would save a couple of bucks and build one from parts.

I shopped wisely and built a basic computer that fit my needs. So, what kind of computer can you build on the cheap? Take a peek and see…

I like stuff. You like stuff. Everybody likes stuff. Right? Well, of course! And today’s stuff is extra special.

Funny story. I decided that I’m finally ready for Denise needles, so I order them online. Not two hours later I’m talking to my Bonez and he mentions that he ordered me the same Denise needles that morning. Gha?! What a sweetheart. So’s I cancel my order and patiently wait for my anniversary interchangeable needles.

Okay, so it might not be a funny story at all. But I got my needles today, so there! And they’re pretty darn swell. I played around with ’em a bit and swatched for my niece’s poncho on the 11’s. [purrrrrrrr] Smooth action.

I’m using Berroco Lullaby in Willy Winky (a purple, blue and green blend that’s v. soft and cuddly). The pattern that I’m looking at is the Harlot Poncho. But you see where I’ve made some yarn-over drops (the lacy, kind of open part)? Well, I kind of like that too and want to incorporate it in the design. Plus, I’m thinking of changing the neckline. So pattern-schmattern, it’s only a suggestion.

It’s that time of year again. We’ve got the eggnog, Elvis Christmas CD and a yule log ready to go. We’ve also got the semi-annual interactive treecam up and running.

Stop by to say hi, or to control the tree lights and other decorations in our living room. We’ll be around most of the next few days. You might even catch us or Evie playing in the living room! The camera is up 24 hours a day until after Christmas.

New stuff this year includes an iPhone-friendly version and a way to leave comments.

wow. This has been a crazy month (plus). I didn’t mean to drop my Pic-a-Day fun, but I plead motherhood… to an infant.

Anyhoo, no excuses. Thanks to Matt, here’s some pix from the past few weeks.

Bert the Farting Hippo

Posted by Matty

This title probably requires some explanation. Chances are, you stopped by the website to see baby pictures, or maybe something that Nanc knitted.

You will be disappointed by this post. Sorry. But now, curiosity should be gripping you. You need to know. Even though you think that fart humor is base and juvenile, you are drawn to click the ‘read more’ link below. It’s not about farting anymore.

Like tiny, blank canvases

Posted by Nanc

Matt and I have been to a few baby stores lately (go figure) and have looked at our fair share of clothes. There’s some awfully cute stuff out there, but mostly if you know the sex of your baby. We don’t.

Not satisfied to accept only the pale green and washed-out yellow pallet, we decided to take this matter into our own hands.

Civic Doody

Posted by Matty

Hi there. Yeah, you. I just wanted to remind you to start thinking about the upcoming presidential election. Chances are that 1 out of every 3 people that read this didn’t vote in the 2004 elections.

I’m gonna make it easy for you.
