long time, no blog

I know its been a little while since I've blogged. I am working on a couple of pairs of socks and a couple sweaters but don't have any pictures. One of the sweaters is kind of an experimental thing that I'm kind of winging. I'm still unsure of it, but we'll see how it goes.
Mostly I just had to ask if anybody else out there thinks that one chick from the Nutri System ad is absolutely obnoxious. you know, the one who claims to not be like an ordinary girl and catches the football and says, "how many girls can do that?". What audience are they going for with this chick? I'm thinking that women are going to find her arrogant and not an all an inspiration even if she lost 40 pounds. Perhaps she's supposed to appeal to men as the dream woman who can be skinny and catch a football? If that's the case then she needs to be on an ad for match.com or something.
I find her totally obnoxious and annoying.
I did survive my trip to Pennsylvania for those who are in the know about that little ordeal. It actually went better than I thought it would although it was a helluva long drive. Steven went with me. Actually, he drove. Good thing he did because I forgot I get kind of freaked out driving in tunnels under large mountains. Pretty hard to drive through those tunnels with your eyes closed.

Hmmmm - I have never seen the commercial but I'm quite sure that I would find her extreemly annoying!

That does sound pretty annoying. Maybe we should start an ad campaign using people over a size negative, equipped with various types of sports gear saying "How many people do you know who can do THIS?" as they toss a stick insect type to and fro. :P
