Can we cancel today....

see, it's the Company Party today. Normally, we look forward to this- a nice lunch at the Mercury or the Country Not so much - it's at the :sniff: Petroleum Club. WAY Pretentious. WAY overpriced.

I was linked to Little Knits - I will be checking them out next time I have some spare funds. :grin:

Knitpicks....well, I have a few problems with their business practices. Haven't heard anything about their yarns...but their needles?

Gotta work...I am SO not looking forward to lunch!
