So. We went to the Laundromat today - 2 hours to do 5 washer loads and 2 dryer loads. (Amazing. I was able to fit all 5 loads in to *2* dryers, and they took 38 minutes to dry everything Bone Dry.) Hauled it all home and put it up, then I realized that I didn't have any pizza sauce for dinner tonight. :sigh: Off to Dollar Store!
Now, I don't like to run just a couple dollars thru on my card, so Herself and I were wandering around trying to up it to a least $10. (Yeah, I'm funny like that.) I was at the front, grabbing cheese (it's already shredded. I don't have to dig in the Studio 'fridge for some of the cheddar I made last year!), when Herself found the bargain DVD bin. "Mom! They have "Sound of Music! For $5!!" We headed up to the checkout.....the cashier started ringing us up. The register "dinged!".....and she got a funny look on her face. She looked at the DVD, looked at me, the looked back at the register. "Um. I....um. Need your birthdate...the register says.....um....you have to be over 18 to....um...purchase this.?.!?" :giggle: We had a rollicking good time making fun of this; I said I hoped that CPS didn't find out I was teaching Broadway Musicals this year, and Herself said that maybe she wasn't old enough to have seen "Phantom"...and the lady in line behind us totally lost it.
But seriously - WHY is there an age limit on "Sound of Music"??????? :sigh:
I'm knitting the heel on sock #2. I'll try to snap a photo tonight - I need to update my Ravelry project page. I'm hoping - HOPING - to finish this thing this week, because I am over it. Well-written pattern, but...it's not intuitive, I don't like the colors Herself picked (although it got LOTS of attention at the Laundromat today), and...I'm ready for something else. I'm thinking something 1 color this time that I can knock out in a week or so....then I'll probably do the Hieroglyphic Socks. (Egyptian Hieroglyphics that spell out "knitting socks". :lol: Too funny!)
