Le Slouching on the job

So I finally finished Knit and Tonic's Le Slouche', a gift for my younger sister's birthday (yes, the birthday which occured three weeks ago). Modeled here by Gina Y of Loops and Marie of Five a Day. I used Debbie Bliss Aran Wool -- very squishy and soft. Loved it. Hate to mail it off. Now I just have to finish my brother's socks for his birthday (two days ago) and a purse for my other sister's birthday (a month and a half ago).

.....Um, scheduling issues, okay?

FINE! FINE! You want the truth? I'll give it to you! I've been reading Twilight, okay?!?!?! Is that what you wanted to hear? I, like every fourteen year-old girl on the planet, am now obsessed with a melodramiatic fictional teenage vampire, who, if the author can be believed, is just dreamy -- in a You Are My Density, I Mean My Destiny - like way (thanks to Adrienne for using George McFly to illustrate the point).

I'm halfway through the series, and terrified to look anywhere on the Internet for fear of spoilers.

Gawd. So embarrasing.

Pictured: teen angust is so sexy. Enough to get over the creepiness of a one-hundred-year-old dead guy in love with a seventeen year-old-live-girl. I wish my husband could carry me on his back as he ran through the woods. Wait, ... he can. ..."Training for a marathon" or vampire hiding as astronomer? He works in the dark, loves red meat. It. All. Makes. Sense. I'm the luckiest girl in the wooooooorld.

My husband has gotten hooked on Twilight. He's avoided gushing around me, and has only really said that I'd hate the series. Mind, I loathe Buffy because of the teen angst (clawed my way through high school once, thank you very much). One of these days, someone's going to see our stack of the books (small stack thus far) and ask me what I think of them; I'm just going to stand back and grin while the 250-pound, scary-looking guy starts gushing over TEH VAMPIRE LURRVE. *eg*

This is Susan from the OSFW list, btw. Forgot to mention the booky bits on my reply. :) Knitting Uber Alles!

Sweet hat!

I bought Twilight. I haven't started it yet, but I'm sure I'll get very into it. Something had to fill the void left by Harry Potter. Don't be ashamed! 'sides, vampires are HAWT.
