Happy Valentine's Day to us all!

Since Valentine's Day is about friendship and love of all kinds, happy VDay to us all, dear blogistas, and remember that the paired thing is only a sidebar issue. We don't live in Noah's Ark....

Handsome Partner and Handsome son came through handsomely for this blogwriter, with one giving shopping requests and the other fulfilling them, then joining forces to write the card and envelope.

Major effort for HP to write at all, and I treasure his writing an entire wish inside the card, which I show not to brag, but to admire and be glad about. Thinking back to last year at this time and the total crisis we were all in, it's wonderful to be able to just celebrate like this.

The cats were very interested in the new box and card and the strange smell coming from the box when I opened it, and Duncan appointed himself Chief Inspector, just in case it was something good like tuna or ham, then shook his head to Marigold and they both strolled casually away, like, oh we knew it was something rotten like chocolate, all the time...

This is a multiple festival time, what with Chinese New Year, the year of the Tiger, and Mardi Gras, and Valentine's Day and in the US Presidents' Day, which I think is written that way since it celebrates plural Presidents. All happening right now. Gosh, the mandatory shopping alone gives you pause...

Anyway, enjoy the day, especially if you get to just not do much. People involved in the Knitting Olympics or the Ravelympics are no doubt already clicking away, but me, nah, knitting not being a competitive event, heh. Profanity in the course of knitting, now I could medal in that, easy.

I notice they've added another newly invented verb, having established medalling as a verb. The new one I notice is to podium!!! meaning get at least some medal or other. Well, he may yet podium on that one, I quote.


  1. Ha! That reminds me of Howard Cosell, whom I only know about because G. was madly interested in all sports. Cosell was doing the commentary at some major auto race and he said that one of the drivers "had yet to pit".

    Or, in the immortal words of Calvin, of Calvin & Hobbes fame, "verbing wierds words".

    Gung Hay Fat Choy!

  2. Happy Valentine's day to you, too!

  3. Profanity in the Course of Knitting--Freestyle.

  4. Nice looking choccies - my cat would have at least licked them just to make sure they weren't tuna or ham.

    They do say the English language is always evolving but I understand you totally over all this verbalisation (verbalisating - you could add that one to the dictionary too!!). I often wonder if people actually understand what they are saying.

    Happy V Day to you all too.


  5. I'm glad you were appropriately valentined, Liz! :O) Gung Hay Fat Choy



Thanks so much for commenting. I read all comments with care and much pleasure!
