another day

I watched a Martha Stewart episode around Christmas time. I was in shock and awe that she actually thought what she was preparing for a party is was realistic. Maybe her writers thought it, but seriously I couldn't make myself change the channel. I think it was because I fell in love with the huge cassollet she was using for the main dish for the party. I digress, the dish she was making had 2 turkeys and 2 geese and i think a lamb leg. But I just think that for a party for us people who don't have someone fixing our partys up for us, it was totaly unrealistic.
She had friends "helping" her make eggnog, which when it was done looked fantastic. I for one would have used my kitchenaid to whip all those egg whites. Have you ever whipped egg whites by hand? It takes forever, but here these guy were whipping away. Then came the BOOOZZEE!!
I don't know how much exactly went in this eggnog batch all i can remember is at least a fifth of jack daniels was dumped in. 
I do admire some of the things that Martha does but for us people who don't have a full crew to finish up the project, i think its unrealistic.
Not that I think that you shouldn't try - go for it, just be sure to have a full  crew to help during the commercials!

the perfect pattern

I knit and crochet, have a yarn stash that is overflowing, and patterns coming out the wahzooo!
you would think with all those patterns i could find one that i want to make.
No such luck.
I love the hunt for that perfect pattern, through the blogs, ravelry and all the magazines.
Do I want to make a blanket, sweater mittens a scarf? Oh the possibilities!
there's is something so relaxing for me while i look and sort through. Even though knitting and crocheting is my stress relief, i think it's really the hunt for the perfect pattern.
Oh the thrill of the hunt.

I daydream what i want to say on my post while I'm at work. I get home and all the funny insightful anecdotes are poof -  gone,  not to be found!
I read several blogs and all these people are talented and funny and i so want to be a source of entertainment for someone too, but how?
I think as i become more comfortable writing about whats roaming around in my mind while i am working away I should be able to remember what I thought was so funny to share or the blog that I was reading that inspired me to jot something down.
