There was going to be a proper post this morning, but I got distracted by this. It's all ChocolateTrudi's fault. I just had to look. FIVE skeins later, I'm broke, but smug.

I am so easily distracted. While looking at yarn, I forgot my budget (easily done, as I'm sure you'll all agree), my breakfast, making my lunch, and my blog post. Sigh. I'm now posting from work. Don't tell anyone.

In other news, the dashing ladies of JenLa have come up with a fantastic new concept: FOAD Thursday. That's Fuck Off And Die Thursday. There's going to be a button and everything. I am far too excited about this concept.

Good thing for the day: Sock yarn.......

Bad thing for the day: My ability to throw caution to the winds and buy sock yarn at a terrifying rate.

Godsakes, with friends like Trudi, who needs enemies? I am glad she didn't tell me about it! Mainly cos I can't buy stuff at present. Except for that $40 of yarn to dye....

Why do I click on your links? why? When you've already said something about the lack of willpower.

Must. Not. Buy. More. Yarn.


FOAD Thursday? lol.

Actually, we didn't come up with the idea, we stole it shamelessly from Moonie and decided to extrapolate it, milk it for all its worth...

Join in. We're designing the button now.

I guess this game is called, "see how many comments it takes La to compete a thought"

I meant to say, about the yarn, "that's some gorgeous yarn, a bit spendy though..."

ok, I think I'm done...for today anyway

*cough* I did hesitate all of 30 seconds before forwarding the email on to you, Peeve.

FOAD Thursday. Lol! That's brilliant! Only I reckon it suits Friday better for me.

We knew exactly what you meant, la. In fact, I think you've just coined a very useful term. I can see myself saying "Ooh, now that's spendy yarn!" or "Don't look over here. It's all a bit too spendy."

I don't see the yarn.. I don't see the yarn..

LOL! FOAD Thursday - I often feel that way about Thursdays.

Swedish Short Snout Dragon? How could you resist not buying some yarn from someone who could think of that colourway?

Fortunately, Peeve bought all the good colors, so I feel pretty safe. :D
