Good News | Bad News

Anyone watch Animaniacs? It was my FAVORITE cartoon during high school. Very funny and smart writing - until Pinky and the Brain actually did take over the, all the episodes. Another show that was too smart for the tv executives.

So if you did watch it, you know the bit I'm referring to - Good Idea Bad Idea. Not that this post is exactly like that - or even close to it. It's just that the name of this post reminded me of the show.

Don't look at me like that! :P

So - here is my version of Good News Bad News.

Good News: The cabled crochet socks are coming along nicely. I'm working above the heal now.

Bad News: I don't have enough STR yarn to finish both socks. I definitely can't make the heels and I don't know how far above the heels I'll be able to go. ::sigh:: Do I frog the socks and make just plain ones or do I incorporate some blue Wool of the Andes yarn I have in my stash?

Bad News: That decision will have to wait because the Afghan of the Sandman must be done by Saturday. And it's not much closer than it was before.

Bad News: I'm going to have to cart the afghan on my commute tomorrow. No excuses - it's got to get done!

Good News: I received an invitation to join Ravelry!! Yay!! I'm so excited to use it! Some have called me anal retentive - I call it my zest for organizaton!

Bad News: I didn't have time to play with Ravelry over the weekend because of condo related stuff and I won't have time to really play with Ravelry until the baby shower is done. Gah!!

Good News: The virtual baby shower is coming along very nicely. People have sent in slides and gifts are on their way. Remind me later to explain what a virtual baby shower is...

Bad News: It's almost 11 pm and I'm kinda wide awake. This does not bode well for getting up tomorrow for work.

Good News: I'm up late enough to catch the Daily Show. See y'all later.

I used to love animaniacs too. It was my absolute favorite. I still wish it was on so I could watch it with my daughter.

It's on DVD now - I think there are 2 or 3 collections out. It's on my Amazon wish list. You might be able to get a deal at Amazon or so you can watch it with your daughter. :)

Sam, how bout using another color of STR for the legs? Anything that's even remotely matchy?

Sam said...

I could - but that would mean buying more STR yarn. I don't want to use the other STR yarn I bought at MS&W. It wouldn't look right. Perhaps I could find a color that would go well with both of the yarns I bought. That way it would worl for both if I need length for both. :)
