Ooooh, look what I pre-ordered from Amazon this morning:

We love Chris Coste. Remember this?

(OMG - Look how young my boy is!!!) Anyway, we like Chris Coste and would like to support him in all his endeavors.

Here is what I worked on yesterday, the 2nd Selbuvotter mitten (what a relief to be doing symmetric color work - so soothing, so predictable - makes me happy - plus 60-stitch rows are sooo short!!!), many rows completed during "Top Chef" debut last night:

Done and done.

I'm not a reality-tv watcher as a rule, but got caught up in this show last season, and this season a dear friend of mine worked as part of the crew, so I'm extra-interested!! I will badger her gently and mercilessly for all the inside gossip.

Yesterday, was the solemn and dignified Closing Ceremonies for GYAC Basketball. Here is Gus's team, the mighty 3-10 Pacers. What a bunch of good kids, and very good sports - they suffered a couple of knife-in-the-gut losses and bounced back cheerfully. (The hair on these kids cracks me up - none of them, including Gus, looks like they know what a comb is....)

Happy St Patrick's Day to you from the great-granddaughter of Himself - Kieran McCulkin. Don't drink too much green beer!

Today is not just St. Patrick's Day -- it is the birthday of a short little Welshman! He's 8!

Those look like pretty nice trophies. I'm so glad that Gus enjoyed basketball! He's such a terrific boy!

That basketball team picture made me feel much better about the current state of my boy's hair.

And those mittens????? OMG! Seriously coveting.

CG - I forgot! Happy Birthday, Owain ("Ellen?"). ha ha ha. The trophies were bobbleheads, which freaked us out. They were kind of spooky.

Liz - Come on - yield to the siren song: "Selbuvotter......Selbuvotter....." You know you want to......

If you check out the Thirsty Bridegroom (remember that?), you'll see some more Owain (ellen?) fuss.
