Kah-Lee-Fohn-Yah, here I come

So, it's official. I'll be in Long Beach from 22 Feb to 26 Feb. Excited to see my friend after almost 20 months away from the Golden State. The weather here in CT has been dismal-ish the past 2 weeks or so. Last night snow, followed by freezing rain, then just rain. Lots of rain. The sump pump in the basement is working overtime. (Those of you who have no idea what a sump pump could possibly be... rejoice in your ignorance.)

Less excited to be in SoCal. But one does what one must.

And if you were wondering, the title of this post is my phonetic approximation of California as pronounced by its current Governator. The simple fact that Arnold freakin' Schwarzenegger is the Governor continues to freak my freak. Gray Davis may have had issues... but Kindergarten Cop? Puh-leeze, Gunther.

OK, so I frogged the socks. (for the Muggles, that means I rolled all the yarn back into a ball and started all over again. Kind of related to a Mulligan in golf - except I don't have to wear spikes or pretend to be a W.A.S.P.)

Just thought you should know.

P.S. to anyone I've promised knitted goods to for Christmas / Hanukkah / Ramadan / Solstice...

Don't be holdin' yo breath. Blue doesn't look good on you, honey-chile.
