Stitch N' Bitch Crochet: The Happy Hooker-Debbie Stoller
The Complete Idiot's Guide to Knitting Projects Illustrated-Barbara Morgenroth
Loom Knitting Primer- Isela Phelps
As I was settling in to read The Happy Hooker last night, while the family watched Big Fish, my crafty 17 yr old dd came out of my room carrying two balls of yarn(mine) and a handful of crochet hooks(also mine), whisked the book out of my hand, and proceeded to sit down and try a new pattern that caught her eye Maybe if I'm nice to her she'll return the book and stuff and show me how to make nice things too!
Today I bought:
Survival Of The Fittest by Jonathan Kellerman,
The Scent of Shadows by Vicki Pettersson,
And Titan by Ben Bova.
Wow, you never cease to amaze abec.
That's nuthin toots, I've heard of a ladies' auxilary group in a little church in Hooker, Oklahoma. They were sitting around trying to think of a name for their little group and someone innocently tossed out the name, "Happy Hookers"..once the wiser ladies wiped the tears from their eyes and were calm again, they gleefully explained why that was just not a bright idea at all
Went wild with the credit card, I may well be camping out for the next week after the wife finds the purchases on her automatic e-mail notification.
God and the State; Mikhail Bakunin
Chomsky on Anarchism; Noam Chomsky
The Road to Madness; H.P. Lovecraft
Now Scott, she's a very nice lady, and that's just three books...
That she is. I just remind her that spending money on books is a good vice to have, unlike others that I could be spending it on.
That's right..atleast you aren't spending it on nasty cigars or..oh wait, never mind
