Tonight I hope to get to my Sit & Knit night over at B&N; I haven\’t been in several weeks and 1) I miss everybody & 2) I\’m behind in my knitting. The earlier daylight savings changeover is getting me all messed up – I wish they\’d put it back to where it used to be…… :::sigh::::
I wanted to tell everybody that my dear friend Cris in Kansas sent me a fantastic travel coffee thing with Hoops & Yoyo on it for Ayyam-i-Ha. I was COMPLETELY surprised and it made me laugh and laugh. Thank you again Cris! I\’m really hoping to see Cris this summer; it has been years and she is one of my favorite people (and boy oh boy can she SING!)
Speaking of favorite people, I recently found the link to my friend Chris D.\’s (aka Baron Von D\’Lucci) blog. It is SO GOOD to read what the royalty is doing these days….
Mi madre asked about the \”whingeing\” in the title of the blog. Fair enough – here\’s the explanation:
to whine :to snivel or complain in a peevish, self-pitying way
to whinge : to complain; whine. British and Australian Informal.
So \”to whinge\” is the same as \”to whine\” \’cept that the former is British slang, and since I grew up in New England where Anglophilism runs rampant, I like whingeing better than whining. It sounds slightly more comical to me as well. Now, if yer an Anglophile and can keep up with British accents fairly easily, you should listen to the BBC\’s News Quiz with Sandy Toksvig. It\’s a current events program with Sandy and four other comedians and it is FUNNY. You may not get all the references to the various government ministers, but I love this show. You can get the podcast thru iTunes, but I like to get it directly from the website since they update more frequently.
It was 80 degrees yesterday and will be that again today, and the previous Sunday we had snow. (!) The Studmuffin took pictures that I hope to get on de blog by tomorrow.
