Odds (and Ends)

I love these. I could sit and eat an entire vat of them. Somehow, because they are filled with pretzels, I think of them as "healthy." Ha! Riiight.

In other news, we are attending the Young Survival Coalition Central Ohio In Living Pink casino themed gala tonight. It is a benefit for the Coalition which provides support to young cancer survivors.  The tickets have been generously provided by my friend's aunt who will be receiving an award! I am going to wear hot pink jeans (I think--provided they look good and not too casual) like these from Express:


Maybe I will get a picture of ME in them--it will not look like the above picture!! I think her thigh is as long as my entire leg. But, I am excited about the pink jeans. I think they will be more wearable than you might imagine. I'm seeing a navy striped top, a grey sweater--any neutrals really--all pairing up nicely. I was torn between the pink and the red. I normally never wear pink or red because they look terrible on me up near my face--but on the bottom it just might work.

I am also taking a knitting class on November 7 and 14th and I am really excited about it! I'm taking it at Wholly Craft. I am dreaming of creating things like this:

But, when I look at the instructions for the cowl above, they might as well be written in Sanskrit. The pictures with the instructions don't help. So, I will most likely end up with something more like this:

Gross.
And if you click on the link for that picture it will take you to a website dedicated to making fun of bad knitting. It's now defunct, but there's some funny sh*t on there. It's kind of like Cakewrecks. Which, if you are bored and want to kill some time, click and laugh. Here, I'll even help with an excerpt:


WHAT in the name of sweet Lassie is that spider doing?!?
