Blog Tales: Hey, Chris...

I note that you put my blog on your links list... Thanks! As a reward (not really) I changed the name of this site.

I promise I did NOT do this just to make more work for you.

It isn't that I didn't like my blog's original name, or that I particularly like the new one. It's that I looked the old one up on Google, and there are several other blogs with the same name (not to mention a lot of quotes of it from Serenity, of course). So I decided to change my title to something that would be easier to find if someone someday wanted to find it without knowing the addy. So the new title is one that didn't turn up anything on Google.

I apologize for the inconvenience. Especially since it's unlikely to matter much in any case. But who knows? Maybe I'll be sitting at Sardi's one day, and a talent scout will catch sight of me, and will approach me and purr those sweet words in my ear... "I've got an editor who is designing an online magazine, and it has your typeface all over it!"

I realize I'm not Chris, LOL, but I while I was waiting for the word verification to go through on your previous post I looked up at the navigation bar and saw that I was at a site called Knot All That. I got very confused because I didn't read this post first, instead I scrolled down to read the posts I'd not yet read. So I saw the new name and was like, "Um, what blog am I reading?!"

(It's been a long day, forgive me. Neither of my little angels slept today. ~yawn~)

Heh. Not a problem. Already changed. :)

Invite me along to the Sardi's gig, eh?

Chris~ If I can ever scrape up the bucks to get there, I am *definitely* going to invite you!

Katherine- The benefit to that complete lack of sleep you endure during the first year of babyhood is that the fog you move in definitely softens the memory of all that screaming. Eventually you'll remember the way his head smelled and the sound of that wonderful nothing-held-back laugh more than you'll remember that other stuff.

Thank Gawd.

(possible deal to make with Julia: by the time V. was 3 he had completely stopped needing a nap. This can not be said of his mother. After a few weeks of nap-time battles, we came to an agreement; he could take his Lego box or a game of his choice onto his bed at naptime and play as much as he wanted, as long as he stayed on his bed and was *quiet* from 1pm to 2pm. This turned out to be a good compromise. Julia's a bit younger, so it might not work as completely, but it might be worth a try?)

Julia, bless her little heart, is my CHAMPION NAPPER. She will go down in history as being The Girl Who Always Napped. Save for maybe 4 days in a six-month period, the girl naps every day, for at least an hour and a half, and would nap for longer if I didn't haul her behind outta bed so she'll go to bed at night. ;)

But on the days that she doesn't nap, like yesterday, she goes to her room anyway for quiet time. She reads books and bounces in her bed and plays with The Different and The Green (her soothers). Because Mama needs that quiet time, whether she wants it or not.

Holy crap -- iamrejkg!!!

You're lucky so far... let's hope Oliver is as cooperative. I needed naps for *years* longer than the kid did!

Stop that!! Haven't you read the strictures on 'You Knit What' against messaging in those random verification letters?

Oh. You aren't a knitter. I forgot.

Well, you SHOULD. Because then you will see the Viking Chicken Baby Hat, and you will immediately lust after it for Oliver. And then you will have to beg me to knit it for you, and you will be in my POWER!!! MuahahaHaHAAA...


okay, better now.

Viking Chicken Baby Hat? I'm intrigued.

Link, please.

Okay, you asked for it. Now you'll HAVE to have one. Don't say I didn't warn you...

Oh, now that's just rude! Why didn't it wrap around? What a pain in the butt.

Okay, let's try this a different way.

You'll have to cut and paste a little into your navigation box.

OR, if you want to experience the full glory of 'You Knit What', which frankly I think you'd appreciate, go to

then click on August in the archives section, then work your way to the second to bottom entry. But enjoy yourself along the way. Even non-knitters can enjoy this particular blog.


(unless this is all just an evil plot to subtly convert you in our slow but steady advances towards Wooly World Domination... I'm not telling...)

You're right. The Viking Chicken Baby Hat is AWESOME. And the blog is cool. But until hell freezes over, I won't be knitting. I'll just knit vicariously through y'all. OK? OK. ;)

That's what you say NOW, but we'll see what happens under our dark influence. Over time you'll find yourself magnetically drawn to yarn stores ("just for the warmth") and then...

That hat is just too darned Special, innit? :D

Blogger mama_tulip said...

LOL. Just for the warmth.

That hat is awesome. I'd put it on my kid with PRIDE.

OMG. 'uyaenpbe' Your blog hates me.

It must sense that you're mocking it...
