Maybe you can tell that I’m attempting to distract you from the whole lotta nothin’ goin’ on ’round here? 😉 My Crazy Boo Monkey Socks have been about five rounds away from being done since Saturday. I’ve worked on my cardi a bit, but back and forth stockinette is not my favorite thing in the world.
Instead of knitting and reading, I’ve been goofing around on my laptop a lot, working on some mixes and chattin’ with the Fraro (did you see her gorgeous yarn over at the Loopy Ewe?!). And I’ve been cleaning a bit for a special houseguest who will be here Thursday and Friday night. 🙂
Oh, and I actually watched a movie the other night – Matrix Reloaded. I was thinking “mmm, good sex scene!” and “butt kicking bestest car chase ever!” and forgot all the flying. Way too much flying. On the plus side, not as bad as Matrix Revolutions *runs brainbleach cycle*.
Talk about discouraging – from the June 2007 issue of Minnesota Monthly (I tried to wade through some stacks of magazines over the weekend):
Minnesota Dating Is Not-So-Nice – Still don’t have a date for that dinner party? You’re not alone (well, only literally): In 2004, the Twin Cities made the list of 10 worst cities to hook up in, as determined by Sperling’s BestPlaces. Recently, the online dating service OkCupid.com determined that Minnesota has the nation’s loneliest women and shyest men. The knock has always been low turnover: Fewer people (in search of companionship) move into and out of here than such larger cities as Boston, New York, and Philadelphia.
Well. See, Van, my plot to knock hot bicycling boys off their bikes isn’t unreasonable – takes care of that shyness thing straight off.
Here’s another shot of Mayhem in midair capturing that mouse. I’m not sure if leaving the picture uncropped helps with the perspective or not… That black smudge at the top is my ghostly thumb after the mouse has been snatched from my hand. 🙂
“I triumph!” -Mayhem

If you find yourself with a surplus of hot bicycling boys, let me know and I’ll pay the postage!!
Mayhem will not be denied the mouse.
Mmmmmmm hot bicyling boys mmmmm. Wait, what?
How about just sending yourself things via bicycle messenger at random? Then the hot bicycle boys won’t be all road rashed from you kicking them off their bikes. If they’re injured, you can’t do much with them!!
Hey…may just have to steal that from you. Oh come on Mouse! If they’re injured, you can take care of them!
mouse has a point…hot boys can be a bit whiny if they’re missing some of their skin.
I’m heading over to TLE to pick up some of Fraro’s yarn this morning. I didn’t even try yesterday the website was sooooo slow.
Of course, The Matrix really wasn’t planned for having sequels. I liked it a lot and it was just fine all by its lonesome.
Oiy! It’s worth watching just for Keanu Reeves. He is such a hunk!
Hot bicycling boys? Hmm…out of my league!
Mayhem, that’s at LEAST 2 points! *and the crowd goes wild*
Can I steal your button?
Yeah, I know how the whole lot of nothing going on feels. At least you have the cats to amuse your readers 🙂
“Mayhem” is such a perfect name for your very funny and very winning cat!
FYI – the button’s from JenLa. I’ve updated so that the button takes you to their blog.
This information about dating in MN doesn’t surprise me at all. It’s awful!
I snore snore worked on my snore my (cable)cardi last night too. I don’t mind the stockinette too much, ‘cept I rather be knitting something else. I spotted my Knitting Hubby back when he was a hot bicycling younger man.
Great action shot!
Ouch on the dating bit! You just need to send those single friends out to seattle! Still cold enough to snuggle 🙂 !
You suckered me into signing up for the swap on swapbot…again, lol ! Looks like a good one though and i only have one other active swap so….i can do it!
which is why I plan on buying my bike pants 9 sizes too small. i might pass out before anyone has a chance to knock me over though.
Great photo of May! I think hot cycling boys might be a bit mad if you started knocking them off their bikes 🙂 Maybe a large butterfly net might work better…
For some reason when I saw the pix of May, it reminded me of the Evil Queen in Snow White. Something about the eye, and that gleam of triumph.
Reloaded — WAY too much flying. I got carsick after seeing that movie. LMAO!
Cats are such acrobats.
I can’t believe how much Chaos likes the scratcher thingy, I have never had a cat that liked those. Neither has my mom or sister. But then as of recently all of their cats have been declawed.
Thank goodness I’m not dating….
Did you tell Howe about this?
Mmmm. Hey – my mom ran into my dad (on purpose) while they were both on bicycles. Still married after 30+ years. (I don’t remember exactly how many, but still.) So don’t fret so much about knocking hot guys off of bicycles. 😉
You do triumph, Mayhem! As usual.
Dating, schmating. Watch Keanu instead.
As always, May continues to distract us with her cuteness. Now she can add “Chief Acrobat” to the list.
Dating is over-rated anyway. Besides, you’ll soon have a nice newly knit sweater to keep you warm.
I tried to watch the Matrix sequels but I always seemed to lose interest and wander off. I’m not sure knocking down hot bicycling boys is a good strategy.
Well you could lay a trap line?
What a sweet, triumphant picture! I’m with Cyn, dating is over rated.
That is such a cute shot of May!
Fraro’s yarns are gorgeous, huh? She’s very talented 🙂
I have been doing a lot of fiddling lately and a lot less knitting too. What gives? Is it the time of year? So if you carry a size 11 knitting needle around in your purse just throw it in the spokes of the hot bicycling guys tire as he cycles by.
As always May, you make me want to run out and buy a kitten.
It remains one of the great disappointments of my life that Matrix 2 and 3 didn’t even begin to live up to Matrix 1. *sigh*
wow. cats ARE fun.
Oh gawd. Don’t get me started on the dating thing. I think my next post on Kazoofus will be me running some searches on dating sites then outlining why each candidate that is returned in my search results does not qualify. SHY? That is not the problem that I have encountered. Total moron loser with no clear definition of what they want personally or professionally? Bingo!
But like I said…don’t get me started. LOL
