Has it really been 20 years?

So I realize that my 20 year high school reunion is coming up in November. Do I go? Hell no.

First of all, I had maybe 2-3 GOOD friends in high school. Second of all, no one gives a shit what happened to me. I've attempted to reconnect with 5-7 folks from school - I sent an email, then sent one back, I emailed back and that was it. So, I figure that if anyone really cared about me showing up, they would email back.

Redan High School Class of 1986...Party Mix of 86...fuck all ya'll. Man, I've been waiting 20 years to say that. Let me tell you what MY high school experience was like. The girls hated me. I had zero girlfriends. The guys were a little more open and I had lots of guy friends in several grades. I loved vintage clothes, unusual pieces, punk or whatnot. I had a couple friends that lived the vintage/punk thing but that was it. I was a total outsider. But I was so smart.

So here I am now, mother of 2, wife to one. There is no way I could afford to go if I wanted to. Good thing I don't.

From Yoda to Tossed Salad

Well, can you believe this hat started out as a Yoda hat? I wanted to make a Yoda had with this vintage green yarn I bought off ebay. And damnit, I could not get the ears right to save my life. Mack Daddy spent a good 20 minutes searching Yoda pics online for me, but I just couldn't get the yarn to do what I wanted.

Well, what to do with a green hat with side flaps? Well, I was going to stop with the ruffle. A 'head' of lettuce - get it? And then it was just downhill from there. Unfortch for The Old Man, it is sans croutons because I couldn't crochet a decent one.

So I give you....The Salad Hat. I will probably list this on ebay at some point as we are trying to pay for The Old Man's vasectomy.


I hope I did that correctly. I really, really want that Mason-Dixon book.
