Those cookies in the shot above (next to my finished Socks 101) were initially placed there because I'd earlier emailed with another blogger about how life might be easier if I were writing a snacking blog. No KALs to join and let down. (Who neglects an SAL? Not this gal. Pringles for all!) No yarn email notification lists to join and then be let down when no yarn materializes. (Snacks are cheap and not produced in limited numbers, unless you like snacking on, say, the World's Most Expensive Chocolate.) No pressure to learn the technique-du-jour. (Unless there's yet another way to eat an Oreo that I haven't heard of.) (Fun Frick Family Fact: My dad wasn't allowed to open his Oreos and lick out the cream. Oupa's was a strict military dinner table. This, I think, explains a lot about my dad.)
A napping blog might be even better.
At any rate, once I'd photographed the cookies, my little brain started thinking about other ways one might connect cookies and knitting (as it tends to do, good little BS-shoveling English major brain that it is), and it reminded me that I had some questions for you. The other day Mr. Frick managed, while fiddling with my laptop, to erase all of my cookies. This means that if I've commented on your blog in the past couple of weeks, it means I really love you, because I had to re-enter all of my info. And you know, when you have dickety-eleven blogs in your bloglines, what a pain that can be. And then Brenda posted about Project 365, reminding me that I'd planned to do it. Which reminded me about my meager Flickr account and how I have no idea what the big Flickr deal is. And of other New Year's business I need to take care of, like organizing my archives.
For someone who remains glued to the laptop as much as I do, I know very little about how this stuff actually works. I only just, in the last week, figured out how to Assign Multiple Categories to my posts, which is a good thing, because I'm always sneaking FO's into posts that have little or nothing to do with them (cough). So...if you'd care to comment about any of the following topics, I'd really appreciate it: Typepad and Archiving, Flickr and its Many Wonders, Other Blogging Doodads I Should Know About, Project 365, Napping, Snacking, Donkeys. (I throw that last one in there because of my newest blog obsession.)
Thanks, in advance, for the help!
