"When you run a picture of a nice, clean-cut All-American girl like this, get her tits above the fold."You'll have to go read Dooce's post to figure out the connection. And none of this has anything to do with weight loss or knitting, obviously, but it's my blog and I'll go off on a tangent if I want to. Besides, tomorrow is quote day and I won't be here. Didn't want you to miss anything.

In case you're wondering why that quote showed up in my little universe 12 years ago, I used to work for a newspaper [as a graphic designer] and my son is a journalist. I made him a T-shirt with journalism quotes all over the front and back. It would undoubtedly be much easier to find interesting quotes now, with the internets and all, than it was then. It is, in fact, easier to make a T-shirt now than it was then, what with ink-jet printers and T-shirt transfers and all.
And if you're getting all huffy about the substance of that quote, remember that the Shrinking Knitter didn't say it … I'm just bringing it to the attention of the world. Or at least the 17 of you who read this blog. If you feel like protesting, quit buying USA Today.
Three pairs of pants got hemmed yesterday. Two pairs did not [one is a lined pair of wool slacks, and I think I need help pinning them up]. Nor did the skirt, which is stretchy-jersey-slippery, and needs serging rather than sewing. But I crossed the job off the list with great satisfaction, along with the "clean" item which is perpetually there. My house is now vacuumed, mopped, dusted and somewhat de-cluttered and I have new clothes to take on my getaway. I felt like a machine at the end of the day! Only a couple more little things to do today and I can leave with a clean conscience. And a clean house.
Food has been great this week. Exercise? Not so much. I'll be walking outside today to test my heel. The weather should be lovely and I'm looking forward to it.
As I am to my little trip. I plan to be back next Friday.
