If I were a Simpson’s character, this would be me- and actually it is pretty darn close. You too can make one here: www.simpsonsmovie.com -it has lots of facial feature and clothing options- but this site has backgrounds: www.milkandcookies.com

I haven’t seen the movie yet. I’m actually more excited about Stardust- opening this weekend. I love movies- like a lot- particularly the kind that make me feel like a little girl again- with princesses and magic and evil witches and stuff. I just can’t help it, so I’ll probably have to drag the man to see it next week sometime as I am going to the lake this weekend. My air conditioning was serviced yesterday so I slept through the night in comfort for the first time this week (yay), but alas, no Baby Bobbi Bear pattern for me yet (booo.) I know, I’m sad too. I sent a message to the company from which it was purchased and am anxiously awaiting a response.

UPDATE: Pattern only shipping is sent via a special cardboard box and thus has to be hand stamped and therefore can take up to two weeks to arrive. Um, this place is located in Maine Massachusetts, not Mars- can I get a little WTF?

It’s hot. I’m not patient and/or kind when it is this freakin’ hot. And it looks like the stealth knitting/lap o’ wool is going to the lake with me this afternoon unless by some miracle I have said special cardboard box.

I would email kpixie and comlain. I ordered from them recently and I had my stuff in less than a week. Sorry about the wait… the bear pattern is adorable tho’. If you are in need of toy inspiration – I have a bunch of books. Let me know.

Because I was ordering just a ‘pattern only’ I was told that up to 2 weeks was the standard. Had I known that at the time of purchase, I would have ordered a hank of yarn or something to make the package ship differently. The wait is so frustrating and now that I’ve had to inquire about it TWICE I sort of feel like I’m the impatient bitch, you know?
