At this point, I’d settle for a Christmas under 50 degrees. The record-breaking high today was actually 74 degrees, which is just RIDICULOUS. It’s December, people! I’m not saying I’m enamored of D.C.’s special brand of freezing-rain, but I’d like it to be at least a little winter-esque. The forecast for Christmas Day – rainy and 45. Sweet!
I’ve done some knitting on the mystery sock (pattern #3 for those keeping count) and balled my 2nd skein of Manos to work on my cousin’s so-called scarf. I don’t think it will be done in time to get in the mail before I leave for Ohio, but I’m going to give it the old college try. Gee, think I had a particular color palatte in mind?
Tonight’s cheesy holiday viewing included the (animated) Grinch and the cheesy Rob Lowe movie, "A Perfect Day". How is it possible that he got prettier as he got older? How is it possible that I never knew that the voice singing the songs in the Grinch is the same guy who does Tony the Tiger for Frosted Flakes?
[ed. note – Do NOT waste your time on "A Perfect Day". HORRIBLE movie. Of course, this is just my opinion and your mileage may vary, but that’s 2 hours of my life I’ll never get back. I could’ve used that time to watch two hours of "My Fair Lady" that I tivo’d on Sunday. Ugh!]
