I'll try not to whine in this entry. It's hard not to when I feel like a dishrag after Thanksgiving for 30 people. So if the house has dust, oh well. The ole bod's saying that I bit too much so the clutter will have to just be tolerated.

The KCO's adventures on tour with the chorus will soon be up on the KCO's blog. It was very amusing taking pictures and explaining the story behind the KCO. While in Ashland I was able to stop at Web-ster's where I picked up the last ball of yarn I needed for the Modern Quilt Wrap and found a copy of this to add to my growing collection of knitting books. When I told the ladies at Web-ster's about the KCO, I got the laugh and look of people who are tolerating the mentally ill person's antics enough to humor her before shooing her out of the store. Reid, my tour carpool partner, just sighed and waited while his fiber fanatic friend flitted about the store.

Guilty pleasures

QueerJoe asks people what guilty pleasures they have. It's funny what people consider "guilty pleasures." What could be a guilty pleasure for one could be something ordinary to another. The joy something brings to a person shouldn't create guilt, but we can be such a judgmental society frowning at what may be just an innocent escape from the normal brouhaha of life that we feel we need to hide what we love to do. But we also love to go to extremes so finding a happy medium is not easy.

At any rate, here are my guilty pleasures:

1. Kraft Macaroni & Cheese with the sauce packet.

2. Lying in my recliner with a comfy blanket and reading until the wee hours of the morning.

3. Standing in the shower just to luxuriate in the warm water running over my head.

4. See's dipping chocolate.

5. Zipping down a freeway onramp, especially if it's downhill and I'm driving a stickshift.

What are your guilty pleasures?

Paying the ungodly amount of money it costs to import a case of Cadbury "snack sandwiches" from Ireland--and then letting the case last for months as I savor each morsel.

That's pretty much my only SECRET guilty pleasure. All the others are already common knowledge. :)
