Friday Gauge Check: Tour de Fleece, Week 2

Well, we’ve successfully made it through Friday, which, for quite a few people I know, is probably a relief.

My week has been just fine, for the most part.  I’ve been doing my spinning every night, and I’m almost done with the bump of fiber I talked about last week.  I finished the second repeat of Chart B for the blue Emily shawlette, made it up to the leg line placement on the first Scottish Boxes sock, and tonight we rented a couple of movies and I worked on the December little shawl, which is an excellent background knit.  Oh, and I did a few rows of the Argyle State University scarf!

Yeah, I still hate it.

Incidentally? Do you guys think commercials are getting weirder and more surreal, or is it just me?  I normally don’t pay much attention when Jack has the TV on, but tonight I’m actually watching and… I don’t know, guys, they’re just weird.  Have you seen the commercial with the human-sized plushies getting chased by a bear?  I think it’s for a car.  And now…there’s a breakdancing duck.  Surreal.

Because I’m behind the times or something, I watched Voyage of the Dawn Treader and that CGI movie with the owls whose title I don’t feel like looking up.  It’s past my bedtime, kids, I’m grumpy.  Deal with it. I did enjoy both movies, and I wish I’d managed to see Dawn Treader on the big screen.  It was always my favorite chronicle of Narnia, and I have to say, the visuals were amazing – and in the best possible way for a book translation.  There were several sequences where I thought, “That’s exactly the way it looked in my head.”  The Dawn Treader herself was perfect.

I can’t think of anything else to say.  I’ll probably have a post later in the week, tentatively titled, “The Invisibility of Happiness.”  So you have that to look forward to.

Otherwise, kids, have a great weekend, stay safe, and take care of each other.  Check your gauge in the comments, or let me know your favorite surreal commercial.

I’m on a horse.

  1. I still plan to make a resume video based on the old spice commercials. 😄

  2. Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga’Hoole is the owl movie. I quite liked it, apparently it’s a very good book series originally.

  3. I remain convinced the Man Your Man Could Smell Like is secretly at war with the DirecTV dude who has gold plated everything and a pet lap giraffe.
