But First

a new hat.

This is the one I made for me, out of my Cowboy Way Dallas Cowboys yarn. I like the way the stripes spiraled. I've got plenty of yarn left, though not enough for a matching scarf. I'm thinking maybe making some flip mittens.

You know, I read something on Facebook this morning.  Someone had posted "So and so is the coolest woman I know.  She can name 31 of the 32 starting quarterbacks of the NFL."  I thought, what's the big deal?  I can do that.  Heck, I can name all 32.  I even know that the Dolphins benched Chad Henne this week to start Chad Pennington, who was starting for the Jets year before last.  And that Colt McCoy is the Browns third quarterback, but he's starting because Jake Delhomme, who was released by the Panthers at the end of last season in favor of Matt Moore is injured, as is second string quarterback Seneca Wallace, who backed up Matt Hasselbeck last year in Seattle, who was out much of the season with a bulging disc.  And that Jason Campbell has been demoted by the Raiders in favor of Bruce Gradkowski, who last year also subplanted JaMarcus Russell, who was released and by the way was brought in by the Redskins to work out after Mike Shanahan benched Donovan McNabb--who was also benched last year by Andy Ried before the Eagles traded him to Washington. 

Need I say more?  Name 31 starting quarterbacks....bah, she's a lightweight. 

The morning started off pretty weird.  I was awakened at 4 AM by what sounded like music.  I thought maybe my cell phone was ringing, but the music didn't stop.  Eventually, I had to get out of bed to see what was going on.

Squeaky had apparently walked across my computer keyboard and managed to start a solitaire game.  The music I was hearing was the awful, jangly casino music that accompanies such games.  Well, the gaming commissioner --that would be me-- immediately shut down the casino and went back to bed.

But I did let the cat come into the bed with me.  Only she decided it was playtime, not sleeptime, so that won't happen again any time soon.

So, basically what all this means is that I've been awake since 4 this morning, so I'm pretty wiped out.   Before I go, here is a shot of my paperwhites. 

I haven't killed them yet, so that's a good sign.
