This is the Octopus I crocheted for my neice for a christmas present.
I got the pattern out of Amigurumi World by Ana Paula Rimoli.
It was super simple and oh-so adorable.
I kinda want to keep him for myself!

Thankful for pies

I am making a couple of adorable pies for tomorrow.

Berry pies are my favorite!!!!!!!

P.S. My house smells amazing right now.

The Muppets Do Queen!

So I know that this is all over the internets by now - but I want to post it cause it makes me giggle... a lot.
Ever since my friend Ramona (aka my friend Kristie's 2-year-old daughter) started talking she requests to watch The Muppets(Take Manhattan) every time she comes over to my house for a visit. I have 2 kid-friendly movies in my DVD collection and she knows that it's one of them. We have watched that movie so much in the recents months I have lost count of how many times it's been.

So the fact that the Muppet enterprise is incorporating Queens music!?!?

Radness...utter radness.

Check it out. I dare you.

Fail Blog Giggles

I love It's pretty much the funniest website around. Some mornings, there is a bit of dribble in my undies from the over-abundance of laughter.

What I want to know is, how does she plan on passing off the seller of said tickets as any of her six kids? Or, do you think she is hording the shots in her closet and doling them out in exchange for things like rock concerts and bottles of Wild Turkey? I didn't realize the H1-N1 vaccine could be used monetarily. I guess I'll be lining up tomorrow.

Elvis Costello on The Colbert Report

I watched a re-run of The Colbert Report the other night and was overly excited to find out that Elvis Costello was going to be one of the guests. Apparently Mr. Costello was having issues with voice loss and couldn't sing. Good thing Stephen Colbert is so effing RAD - this is what they gave us...
