Procrastinator!

All my fingers spontaneously turned to Twizzlers a few weeks ago and that’s why I haven’t been able to blog! Have you ever tried to type with licorice? Not easy, I tell you.*

Really, the excuses for my absence are duller than dull (worky work, Potter-mania, blah blah boring), and I’m so far behind on my blog reading that I finally had to just clean the Bloglines slate and “mark all read.” But hey, I’m back now. And Holy Shit the sockapalooza deadline is like 4 days away! How many days does July have? Crap. And so all of a sudden I’m knitting like a fiend despite a nasty case of trigger finger in my left hand. Send ice packs and Advil.

*What you can do with a Twizzler is bite off each end and use it as a cocktail straw for your bourbon drink. Thank god I went to law school so I could learn that valuable piece of knowledge!

Well, I've never tried that with bourbon, but I do remember drinking my milk that way when I was a kid!

That's how I drink my diet coke! Diet coke through a twizzler straw is the best thing ever.

Who knew twizzlers were so versatile :)

Good luck with the sock knitting deadline.

i've never sipped bourbon from a licorice string -- just soda. might have to try it out ...

I've sipped something through a Twizzler, but it wasn't bourbon! Got to give that a try ASAP.

Yay, I'm in good slowpoke company!
I hear bourbon does wonders for sock knitting.

All knitting over here stopped for Harry Potter, too. Twizzlers for knitting needles....sounds sticky. Stick with the twizzle-straw.

MeBeth, I completely know what you mean about blogging. I have not had the time with this new teaching job to do much blogging. I may have to plead the "Posssed by the Twizzler" defense. Do you think that would hold up in blogging court? lol! Hang in there, it will get better.
