scary thought

i decided a week or so to publicly acknowledge i have a blog when asked. i think i added my addy to yelp and a few craft sites. i've noticed lately that my counter has GREATLY increased. so hooray for more traffic.

who is actually reading this? i wonder. is my blog somewhat interesting? if i stumbled across it, would i give it a second glance?


best article i've read this month

Seth MacFarlane: 'Stewie Griffin Gay, And The Parents TV Council Can Blow Me If They Don't Like It'

The Advocate cornered Seth MacFarlane, the multi-talented creator of venerable envelope-nudging Fox animated hit The Family Guy, for an off-the-velvet-cuff conversation about how homosexuality figures into his own brand of flashback-reliant comedy. Despite an affection for musical numbers that would suggest otherwise, MacFarlane is straight. Still, he's had the opportunity to explore his same-sex-loving side through his voicing of Family favorite Stewie, who's evolved in recent seasons from a nefarious infant hellbent on world domination, into perhaps the only TV diaper-pooper grappling with his own sexual identity. Some highlights from the highly entertaining exchange follow, including a graphic proposition for frequently outraged Family-monitors, The Parents Television Council:

The Advocate: The Parents Television Council voted the episode, along with many others, "Worst TV Show of the Week." Do you appreciate that honor?

Seth MacFarlane: Oh, yeah. That's like getting hate mail from Hitler. They're literally terrible human beings. I've read their newsletter, I've visited their website, and they're just rotten to the core. For an organization that prides itself on Christian values--I mean, I'm an atheist, so what do I know?--they spend their entire day hating people. They can all suck my dick as far as I'm concerned.

my saturday night project

so i bailed on a late night concert at emo's in 28 degree weather to stay at home and make this babydoll.

she was supposed to be a completely different hat but the head round was too wide and my puffy stitches were too many. i went ahead and turned her into a slouchy!

geez i look so emo in the pic. i had to take it myself in the bathroom hence the "myspace profile pic" look.

FYI...using your iphone to take self-pics in not easy.

crochet crazy

here are some more projects i did a few weeks ago. i've been working on some more intensive hats/gloves so i haven't completed much. but don't you worry. i will be done soon.

i like to call this one the OSU pom pom hat. matt has to wear it every game for good luck.

i really don't like this one on me. i might give this away as i'm not 100% happy about the ear flaps.
