Full of Fail turned into Full of Win!

I feel so full of fail right now. Not only have a barely blogged this summer (summer? don't you mean YEAR???), but I finished my socks two weeks ago and haven't posted them yet.

I hope to now turn that fail into a WIN!



Gratuitous Ellie shot:


Hopefully I can gain some readers back by posting cute kittie pictures.


It's never not funny when Luciano does this. He looks like a cat skin rug. Or a leaf gecko. I can never decide which one.

He does Pilates too:


And delivers the smackdown to his poor big sister:


The funniest part of that picture? Ellie's face!!! She looks like she's thinking, "Holy shit -- here it comes!" I've seen her give him an unprecedented wallop a couple of times, though.

Last Saturday's brunch was also full of win:


I'd weigh a million pounds if I did that every week. We only go to this diner on the way to one of our hiking spots. For the record, it's the "50s Diner Special", which is 2 eggs any style, choice of 2 meats, home fries, choice of a short stack of pancakes or French toast, and a bottomless cup of coffee for under $9. I've never finished it.

Another win is putting grapes in your cheeks and lips and taking funny photos:


It's really hard to do without cracking up, and thus looking like the Cowardly Lion:


A cute baby, laughing and trying to grab at your camera -- that, too, is full of win:


Okay, so I was going to post about some crazy internet drama (relating to the Yarn Harlot, Ravelry banned members, Sock Summit, stalking, moebius panties, etc.) that is full of fail, but decided to turn my post into one that is full of happy things. So there, drama llamas! :-p

Beautiful socks! And those pictures are hilarious. Next time try playing chubby bunny with marshmallows.

Woah. Those are some amazing action cat shots! I love that splayed out cat skin rug pose. I wish I could sit like that!

Hey, you haven't lost all your readers. I'm right there with you in the slacker blogger category. I haven't posted in a couple of weeks. I'll get around to it eventually.

I'm in love with Luciano! Can I come and join you for breakfast at that diner someday?

You know, I may have seen you on the T the other day, but not have recognized you because of the lighter/longer hair...

Anyhow, yes, cats, food, and knitting. Great way to get people to come back for more. The cats especially. Catskin rug! We often have one too, but it's usually gray and fuzzy.

My boys do yoga. (Than Chai in particular likes to show me the proper way to stretch while I'm doing my pathetic human version.)

As for not blogging... :"< ...I haven't even been knitting. You do win!
