Good friends and old cameras

August 26, 2009

My dear friend has kindly given me a loaner camera, and that is just one of the many, many reasons she is a good friend. It is a very nice camera too.

In my last post I mentioned amigurumi. Well, made one, and I feel I may have to make more, many more. It was fun, quick, and addicting. Here is, Finn saw him and said, “BumBum!” so that’s his name. Ladies and Gents, meet BumBum the bubble leg monster.

This is bad folks…real bad. I don’t even know how to type it without tearing up. My camera is dead. It’s was killed in a pickling accident last weekend at the Annual Family Clam Bake. For some reason it got packed into a plastic bag with my cell phone, some candy, and a leaky jar of pickled brussel sprouts…and spent the night there. Seriously? I don’t know how this happened or what, but I’m ready to cry. Not good.

Please don’t tell the blog police that I am blogging without a camera. I’m really bummed because I finally finished Finny’s Elefante for his birthday…can’t post it or ravel it. I also joined the Ravelry group Harry Potter Knit & Crochet House Cup. Can’t blog or ravel any of those upcoming projects. AND what’s worse, is despite my abject loathing of crochet I am finishing my very first amigurumi tonight and he’s…well freakin’ adorable! Please, please Lord! Don’t let the extended warranty be up on our camera! Have mercy!

Here is a darling gratuitous Finny shot to bridge the gap until I am with camera again.

Im so cute, so cute, so cute. Yeah!

I'm so cute, so cute, so cute. Yeah!

and one more…

Ooooh, say can you seeee...

Ooooh, say can you seeee...

I think I may have nightmares

We went to my husband’s cousin’s Sweet 16 birthday party tonight. It was a Luau theme. I was terrified. There were too.many.giggling.teenage. girls. Too many! Seriously, it was frightening, the high pitched twittering giggles. The boy talk, the points of view, the giggling, the silliness, the giggling. Youths! I was really scared, I asked my husband to hold my hand. It hit me…we are only three years away from this nonsense ourselves. Three years people! Don’t anybody blink or it will be here already!

P.S. I actually had a delightful time. The birthday girls mother has a gift for party planning and decorating.
