Super glue saves my "A." yet again. So darling Kitty has had a thing out for washing machines and dryers from day one. At my old apartment I had to lodge a six y six piece of wood so the devil in fur wouldn't dis-attach the dryer vent. A former favorite past time. KArma is a "B." even for cats.I lodged a giant 6x6 piece of wood there to keep him out. One day I moved the plank to paint the dining room and during one of his freak outs, he knocked over the giant piece of wood on his toes. he ended breaking his little pinky toe. Now in my new place, I found my laundry hose was more of a sprinkler than a drainage hose. I found a cat sized tooth mark in the hose. He is the devil in fur. I was going to buy a new hose but frst I tried to electrical tape it. Water oozed out. Then I tried a little super glue. Good as new.

Every now and again I reuse a bridesmaid dress and wear it to a charity event. The photo above was from a habitat for humanity 'cement mixer.' Clever name huh? Well this year I'm not exactly attending a charity event and I bought a brand new dress around Christmas time which I'm kind of regretting since the whole house buying adventure. But I can maybe wear it to a wedding or two this summer. I am going to an academy awards party at the George Eastman house. I'm pretty sure it will be a bunch of old folks and Jenny and I but I'm way excited to watch the Academy Awards at the Dryden theatre after they take our pics on the red carpet and we have our 1 free cocktail. The proceeds go to the museum so that is nice. I bought the tickets as a christmas gift for Jenny after we decided we had too much stuff. Therefore, we should do something together for our gifts to each other instead of hoarding more crap. I enjoyed a cooking class from her in December. Anywho, The purse in the above picture is hideous, especially with the dress. So I was thinking of knitting/sewing a small evening bag. Except, the event is Sunday and it is now Wednesday evening. I wonder what I have in my stash. It probably won't happen but ideas are pretty much my favorite part of knitting.
