Mama's Pearl

Some days you just gotta put on some Jackson 5 and dance around like an idiot. Ya know? I've been stuck at home for hours without human contact. I think I've got cabin fever. Ha!

I've spent the last five hours by myself in the house knitting and writing a term paper. I feel at once productive and a slacker. I did get some homework done, and I managed to finish a baby sweater. But at the same time there is so much MORE homework I should be doing, not to mention a thesis I should be writing, and I'd rather just look up pretty stuff on Ravelry or watch trashy reality tv.

 Speaking of, I just finished "If I Can Dream". The latest brain child by Simon "The Jerk from American Idol" Fuller. It was.... interesting? Five ridiculously good looking young folks get the opportunity to make it in hollywood and they spend their time complaining, sleeping or turning down roles. The only one I could understand was when the conservative girl didn't want to bare her breasts. I agreed with that... but all the others? Wha? In the end I ended up liking the obnoxious kid from American Idol because he was at least out there, you know, trying to do something.

I wish there was an "If I Can Dream" where people give me lots of yarn, sheep, alpaca, a spinning wheel and money to support myself. We could follow my progress into the world of fiber art and see if I could make it as a maker of yarn and designer of knitwear. You guys would watch, right?

Maybe we could start a letter writing campaign to.... Debbie Bliss? Interweave? Someone give me a chance!
