Late again

The charming Kristy tagged me for a Make My Day award. So, belatedly, these are the some of the things and people that have made my day recently. Obviously, not in order of importance.

1. This warning:

Do not recharge? Ok. Do not discard in fire? Alright. But do not, um, use? That’s admirable ass-covering from a liability perspective (dude, we told them not to use it!), but probably leaves something to be desired from a product marketing perspective.

2.The guy in line in front of me at CVS Friday night, who bought a jumbo jug of Astroglide and two huge bags of beef jerky. He was clearly planning a much more exciting evening than I was. I was kind of tempted to high-five him. Except it probably would have been awkward and intrusive. And I'm not the high-fiving kind.

3. And, of course, these awesome bloggers:

Kristy: for being such a prolific and fearless knitter, and endlessly funny and encouraging.
Karen: for challenging herself to become a better knitter (though she's plenty good already) and inspiring me to actually *set* knitting goals.
The Daft Crafter: one of the funniest people I have ever met. And, missy, if you want to see this as a none-too-subtle request to blog more often, feel free.
The Craft Pirate: A super-talented knitter that I've taken to thinking of as my knitting Yoda. I promise, this is a compliment.
Life in Sarahland: a woman who knits what she damn well pleases, even if it's cutesy as all hell. And more power to her.
The Knit Sisters (I’m counting them as two): funny, funny, funny. And smart. It's a powerful combination.
Olga: entirely awesome.
Knitting in Pink: always up to something fabulous sock-wise.
Twin Knit: Lovely projects and yarn. Thoughtful, and funny, too.

The best part about this (besides opportunities for mutual flattery)? I have tons of new blogs to check out!

Oh, man. That's the funniest thing I've heard all day.

Valerie said...

My first Made my Day award! Thank you so much! : )
The battery thing is too funny, thanks for sharing!

Elinor said...

Um, yeah. That's really nice. I wonder what he was thinking all the time he was in line.

Kristy said...

Wow, that #2 is too funny.

Macoco said...

Thank you so much! I will take the Yoda comment as a compliment. ;)

Sarah said...

Thank you! What an honor to be in such fine company!

Quinn said...

I will never again be able to think about beef jerky without also thinking of lube.

Olga said...

I am mortally embarrassed to admit I had to google "astroglide." You can, of course, imagine my reaction. :P

Thank you for the shout out! I'm so glad random fate and sock swaps brought me to your blog. *You* are entirely awesome.

I'm somewhat embarrassed to admit to someone from the Pacific Northwest that we thought Chuck Taylors WERE grunge.

That's the only style I've ever been good at... I miss ripped, plaid, flannel shirts...

Okay, so this is what totally made MY day. One of the funniest people I've ever met calling me one of the funniest people she's ever met. Now THAT is just redonk. Thank you!

I'll be seeing you tonight, perhaps. I totally just wrote perpaps. AAAAAHAHA. Paps.

Actually we just had a company meeting and our Internal Tools team was giving an update on what they've been doing, they've been designing a meeting-planning utility so everyone can see all meetings that are on the schedule. They call it the Meet Grinder, but today he tripped up a bit when he was talking about it, so this is what it sounded like.

"We're also working on the meet... tool..."


My boss: "heh heh, meat tool." And then the rest of the company lost it. I thought of YOU, dear.
