Lewis Carroll "The Walrus and the Carpenter" from Alice in Wonderland
Of weight loss and sewing machines that don't work and keeping one's disagreements with the world private wherever possible...
I know, that doesn't rhyme.
- I have set out, with a friend in Arkansas, to lose 100 pounds. To that end, I have invested in an inexpensive bathroom scales. It's time. It's necessary. It will be very, very difficult. Keep me in your thoughts. My question is, if I reset the starting point on the scales to -10 pounds, does that count as a weight loss? Ok, ok....
- The Pixie II sewing machine has been returned to the store from whence it came. It was a bad, bad sewing machine,and we did not get along at all well. I shall be having my good machines repaired.
- Today I had to referee a domestic disagreement between two people who mean very much to me. You know who you are. Please, please, please, make it your goal to keep all disagreements just between the two of you and NOT public ok? I don't want to read about your fits and problems with one another or with anyone else on Facebook or MySpace, I don't want to hear about it on the phone, I don't want to know about it in person. Your parents and family don't need to know you're fighting, your friends don't need to know you're fighting, and your children don't need to know you're fighting. See if you can go an entire week without posting/telling/whining about your fights and disappointments in any sort of public venue, ok? Ok. Thankyouverymuch.
- We have steps leading down from one of our exit doors now! HURRAY for my husband and master carpenter!
