Rules of Rural MI... XD

The Rules of Rural Michigan are as Follows:

1. Pull your droopy pants up. You look like an idiot.

2. Turn your cap right, your head isn't crooked.

3. Let's get this straight; it's called a 'dirt road.'. No matter how slow you drive, you're going to get dust on your Lexus. Get out of the way!

4. To us they are cattle. Think of them as live steaks. They smell funny to you, but they smell like money to us. Get over it.

5. We're not impressed that you have a $60,000 car. We have $150,000 corn pickers that are driven only 3 weeks a year.

6. Every person in rural Michigan waves at you. We think of it as being friendly. Try to understand the concept.

7. If that cell phone rings while an 8-point buck and 3 does are coming in, we WILL shoot it out of your hand. You better hope you don't have it up to your ear at the time.

8. Yeah, we eat taters & gravy, beans & cornbread. We fry our fish after catchin' 'em. You really want sushi & caviar? It's available at the corner bait shop.

9. The 'Opener' refers to the first day of deer season. It's a religious holiday held the 15th of November.

10. We open doors for women. That is applied to all women, regardless of age.

11. No, there's no 'vegetarian special' on the menu. Order steak. Or you can order the Chef's Salad and pick off the 2 pounds of ham & turkey.

12. When we fill out a table, there are three main dishes: meats (includes fish), vegetables, and breads. We use four spices: salt, pepper, hot sauce and ketchup. Oh, yeah.... We don't care what you folks in Cincinnati call that stuff you eat... IT AIN'T REAL CHILI!!

13. You bring 'coke' into my house, it better be brown, wet and served over ice.

14. You bring 'Mary Jane' into my house, she better be cute, know how to shoot, drive a truck, and have long hair.

15. College & High School Football is as important here as the Bears or the Bulls, & a dang site more fun to watch.

16. Yeah, we have golf courses. But don't hit the water hazards -- it spooks the fish.

17. Colleges? We have them all over. We have State Universities, Community Colleges, and Vo-techs. They come outta there with an education plus a love for God and country, and they still wave at everybody when they come home for the holidays.

18. We have a whole ton of folks in the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines. Plus we have the Michigan Militia!
So don't mess with us. If you do, you will get whipped by the best.

19. Turn down that blasted car stereo! That thumpity-thump crap ain't music, anyway. We don't want to hear it anymore than we want to see your boxers. Refer back to #1.

20. Four inches of snow isn't a blizzard - it's a flurry. Drive like you got some sense in it, and DON'T take all our bread, milk, and toilet paper from the grocery stores. This ain't Alaska! Worst case, you may have to live a whole day without croissants. The pickups with snow blades will have you out the next day.

21. I-94 goes east and west, I-75 goes north and south. Pick one.

The fiddlesome block!!@#!@# you know how a few posts back i said i ran out of gold yarn well i discovered that the hobbylobby gold color that ive got in the ripply waveyblanket is almost exactly the same shade.. its just the smallest hints of yellowerness.. the more fiddlesome difference is that the yarn is softer, thinner, and has a shine to it that the redheart does not. Buuuuuut.. i decided that since it was just.. two sides.. and inner sides at that.. that it shouldnt be too bad of a difference.. and look at the piccy.. (I know the color sucks.. i just cant be arsed to get the big cam out) you can barely tell!l;asjf;klasjf;kljdf so yeah.. i'll be finishing putting the fourblockgroups together with the green.. then doing a large green outside.. I'll posteth a pic when its done!!

So I went shopping with the cuz.. bought a couple skeins.. didn't find any of that gold so I'll probably be buying it online. Mum text-ed me while we were on our way home to say that my book/yarn had arrived in the mail.. that stuff I won from stitch.tac.sew's February giveaway lol Woooo got home its some honkin soft yarn without being weak feeling.. i may just splurge on getting some more of it in other colors.. the Book.. kickass patterns man.. I cant knit worth a damn but the crochet ones I'll probably be doing. That wavey blanket's only about twice as long as it was in the picture cause that stupid sicky came back n Ive been a bit under again.. wahhh.. but anyway.. spring is here.. although its snow outside.. its melting.. thing's will get better.

Its alooooot brighter in real life lol.. Too lazy to drag out the good camera.

Got the pattern from Attic24. Gotta love those bright colors.. I had all these single skeins of color and couldnt think of what to do with them till i saw the tutorial last night lol. I've seen it before but it never clicked lol. There's 8 colors total .. a Dark Green(Caron One Pound Forest Green 534) Lightish Purple(RedHeart SS Lavender 0358) Nice deep blue (RH SS Royal 0385) Bright Red (RH SS Cherry Red 0319) Light aqua blue (RH SS Aruba Sea 0505) Purple (RH SS Amethyst 0356) Bright freakin Orange (RH SS Pumpkin 0254) and a goldeny yeller (HobbyLobby IlovethisYarn Sungold 156) Not a huge fan of the HobbyLobby yarns but i needed a yeller for this blankie.. too many dark colors and it wouldnt have the same Pop!

So yeah.. its on hold till i get more yeller.. blarghhhhh

Shrek Nuclear YinYangs

Watching Shrek and Woooo! Finally finished the minigranny yinyang!!
Im thinking about adding a couple more rows of black around the outside but not quite sure about that. The white side is only outlined on one side.. it'd be too bulky if i did it in the same fashion on both sides.. but ohwells.. i decided that the next time i make this it'll be done in three colors so i dont have to worry about outlining and such lol.
So Japan's now having problems with their nuclear plants.. sad.. and so many people dead.. I read on someones blog about a "prediction" about the 19th the full moon will be at its closest to the earth point than its been in a number of years.. and this'll cause some sort of epic earthquake in Cali.. Bro's friend is supposed to be going back there on Friday.. the day before.. but..all one can do is hope that nothing happens.. or that if something does that it wont be too bad..

Friday, March 11, 2011


So Japan had an Earthquake. Now their nuclear reactors are threatening to explode. Shits going down.. I hate being sick.. Bro's friend decided he wanted to pay a visit home suddenly.. Still hate being sick.. made promises.. had promises broken.. head, heart, soul all hurt. Its stupid. No one reads this.. I havent gotten much done due to being sick. Whatever.

I won summat on stitch.tac.sew. Wewt! So yeah.. yesterday was spent nursing a sore wrist.. playing Eve. And Minecraft. Lol. Got a couple more blocks done on the minigranny. Dad helped put together this box thing we have for when we have chicks(baby chickens), for the rabbit .. she loooooves all the space lol.. though if we do chicks this year she'll have to go back to her smaller spaced cage.. though dad mentioned we might build her an outdoor hutch-thing for summertime. But we'll see.

<8:54 pm>
Etsy Etsy Etsy Shop is open!@!#@@ XD.. Since I havent yet figured out how to add it to the page.

Eve and Yarn

So my bro got me back on the Eve Online game.. spacefairing sort of game.. And its a good multitasking game cause it doesnt require all your attention.. Ive been doing that while my finger which i almost took the tip off of the other day was healing.. and now im "mining" and working on the mini grannythingy.

Friday, March 4, 2011


Nothing to show.. when pain hits it hits hard and really pisses me off cause I cant do much of anything.. FORK YOU CRAMPS! anyway.. I managed to do a few more pieces for the sunflowery goodness. Just been too lazy/pained to take pics of it.. ive got minigranny type yinyang thing started.. uhh.. cousin came over and mum her n me talked bout the wedding stuffs for a little bit.. but other than that not much at all.

Somewhat unrelated to the title.. Early this mornin I decided to change the sunflowery blanket .. it wasnt turning out the way I wanted to Hexxys and Zigzags.. its going to be fairly simple.. What was made of the blanket has been turned into a bag, scarf, potholder, and idkyet for the rest of the pieces.. Ive gotten four panels of four grannysquare style doins done of the "new" version of the blanket.. its gonna be a big one.. and Im gonna need more yarn for it.. but its a better start than the other one DX Anyway.. thats what I did today besides go out and get a new set of drawers for yarny things o rwhatever.. toodles.

blagh.. I feel soooo sleepy and sick.. havent gotten anything constructive done..I came to the conclusion that i need a dress form thingy or some kind of human size dummy bc the barbie just isnt the right shape lol. So the granny skirt thing i was makin is on hold till i can get something of that sort... other than that.. nothing.
