Well, Now There's Something You Don't See Every Day
... and actually, I'll spare you a picture. But, get this.... yesterday I killed a lizard with my air conditioner. Now, how often do you figure the big ol' outside part of the air conditioner with the big fan thingy (technical terms, but stay with me) actually takes it out on the yard fauna.
Poor little guy, he musta fell in or something. I turn on the air conditioner for the first time this year, because it's 98 degrees this week, and first the soft whir of the fan, then a quiet "thump, thump, thump".... Hmmm... what the heck? Well, actually, my first thought was "Dangit- how much is THIS going to cost to fix!" (you know how I love spending yarn $ on appliances) - so I go out to look, and there he was.... poor little guy. Must have been some kind of blunt force lizard trauma, because besides a missing tail he looked okay, laying up there where he got flinged out. Okay - he may have been twitching just a little...
I bet you're getting a little afraid to read this blog every day now, aren't ya? First it's plucking pheasant stories - and now lizard death. Ok - I promise, no more gross stuff.... only happiness and light from now on. But, really, you gotta admit that's weird.
So, the knitting - it does continue, slowly. This First Class shawl is going to be blog death. It's a fun knit, but a slow one. I have about 18" done, out of 90" well, yeah
- and now that I can't write about gory stuff anymore... well I just don't know what to tell y'all.
Ok - here's a gem from Lilly the other morning in the car on the way to school:
"Hmmmm (looking at her iPod) - I must have fallen asleep with my podulator on last night. Check it out! I listened to 40 songs!! Hmm, I wonder why it finally turned off? - It must have known I was asleep."
I love her.
