About me, myself, and I and the hobbies I have, including, but not limited to knitting. Oh, yeah, and my family too.

Native Hoosier who never escaped. Living with hubby and kid in a house packed with too many crafts. And this is a problem how?

Freaking low-life scum

Someone broke into my and my husband's cars last night. I'm so mad about it I could just, well, clean my house (for those of you who know me, this means that I'm REALLY pissed).

Evidently, the scumbag was just looking for money, as he really only took the change from our ashtrays. In my car, he probably netted less than a dollar, but hubby is a change horder, and probably had about $15.00 worth. But that is not what I'm currently up in arms about. The SOB trashed my stereo. It was a nice JVC aftermarket, the only thing really worth anything in my car. It had the removeable faceplate and everything. The jerk actually tore the face plate off, and broke the mounting bracket in the process.

I may also be missing a cd of Ten Penny Bit, which is a good cd to have in the car if you like peppy tunes your kid can sing along to. I don't know yet, because the twit also took a good bit of the trash in my car trashbag and liberally sprinkled it all over the car. Yuck. And, to top it off, he left the butt of a Swisher Sweet on the passenger seat. Hubby and I don't smoke, so it smelled like a bar, only without the stale beer smell.

The sherriff is supposed to be dropping by to file a report tonight, and then I'll be cleaning up the car. Ten years in this neighborhood, and never a problem.

Anyway, a little on the knitting front. The "Good Bias" shrug has come to a halt, as we rearranged the living room this past weekend, and I've just been too lazy to start up on it again. I've only got another 3 repeats before I start to increase for the upper arm and the back on the 1st side. I'm probably woefully behind everyone else, but c'est la vie.

I'm going to try the French Market bag pattern from Knitty. It looks like fun, and I've got scads of Brown Sheeps Lamb's Pride laying around not doing anything. One can only felt so many pairs of slippers before you need something else.

The Rogue is still in the same state as it was last month. I'm still going to rip the hood back, but because the size 9's are on the shrug now, I may have to wait a bit, or get another pair of size 9's.

Sigh. And by the way, if there really is anyone reading this, could you throw me a bone and post a comment? Even a simple "hi" would be appreciated. I need some cyber-hugs, and a strong drink.

Ugh, so sorry to hear about the scum who trashed your stereo! Stuff like this always makes me so mad. I hope that I did not pass my bad karma of the past few weeks on to you.
And you're not behind on the shrug--it's not a race--and some folks haven't even started! There will probably still be people joining in for a while.
Hang in there!

Hey Beth, I actually do read your bog *grin* Fellow knitters must read about each others work, right? Sorry to hear about your car...and your sheets. Hope things start looking up for you!

BASTIGES! I say we track him down and teach him the damage knitting needles and ticked off knitters can do!

Or perhaps we could just take you out drinking, instead? :)

You're being read, and commiserated with. (and you have a LOVELY template for your blog *winkwinknudgenudge*) I haven't been getting comments, really, either, so I know how you feel.

Sorry to hear of the ickiness; as for what you're knitting, or not knitting, as the case may be - knit what you like, leave what you don't, and eff 'em if anybody wants to snark! ;)

Here's to things looking up for you.

Hi! I'm laurie. I *love* your blog. YOU ARE TOO FUNNY. I mean, not the part about the car ('cause that is sad) (and I should know since I got my car stolen in October. eeegads.) but your blog is funny and I like reading it, and now I feel kinda bad because I come, I lurk, I read, I leave no comments and now I see the error of my ways, so here I am, commenting (and MAN can I write a run-on sentence or what.)

I like your blog. Sorry about your car! That sucks! Feel better!
