For a slice of Real Life.
At work, Monica and I are in the throes of building an intranet for our agency. Coming up with the content and navigation and creating the pages? No problem. We know what we’re doing. Getting it up and running and hosted on the appropriate server? Not so easy. Why? Because we have to deal with other people.
Monica had a discussion with one of our central IT people the other day about this. He very helpfully drew her a chart.
She showed it to me yesterday and we both just started laughing. Oh yeah. That clears everything up.
Okay, maybe you had to have been there.
In spite of that chart, we did figure out how to get it up (as it were) where it’s supposed to be. After much testing and refreshing and running back and forth. Or as the French Taunter in Monty Python and the Holy Grail said: “knees-bent running about advancing behavior.”
Yeah. Welcome to my world.
I took some daylight-without-flash photos of my Lauren Tank. Here is a slightly better photo of the awesome-ness that is Alchemy Silk Purse.
But it still ain’t right.
Have I put it together and completed it yet? Why, no, I haven’t. I wanted to last night but I did a lot of real-life stuff last night that cut into my knitting time. Severely.
Like laundry. And grocery shopping. And (gasp) cleaning.
Yes, sometimes I clean. But only when I have trouble telling Lucy apart from the cat hair tumbleweeds.
Stay Tuned . . .
The August contest will be announced Monday!

Why yes, my food does taste better when I drag it across the floor first!
