For hosting Sip, Knit and Pitch, or whatever they called the knitting night at the Saints game. Let me tell ya, it's fun to knit on a Trekking XXL sock that is orange and cream stripey, and watch the ballgame entertainment that is unique to the Saints game. There was a contest to see who could knit the fastest, and a leafblower contest, and a freaky fan human trick contest. I was one of three contestants in the freaky fan contest. I demonstrated how I could touch my elbows together in front of my body in a backwards way. I was up against an eyelid flipper, and a double jointed fingers person. And, I won!!!
Yay mom and dad for supplying the winning deoxyribonucleic acid of which I am formed! I knew my biology background would come in handy sometime. I won 6 tickets to the X men three preview, and three t-shirts, a poster, and a sticker for the movie. The shirts say "Proud to be a Mutant" (I'm wearing it now), and 2 that say "Why Try to Fit in When you were born to stand out."
There was one injustice of the evening- missing the yarn swap and missing the free ball of yarn for the first 500 knitters- due to DH's delayed flight mishaps. Oh well. It was a great night all in all. And now (in 10 minutes, or whenever I finish my quickie post) we are driving to Kansas, a 7 hour drive to Bonner Springs to go to my brother's college KU graduation ceremonies weekend. The first and most significant event there begins at 8:30am, and we will be in a hotel 45 minutes away from it. Fun times.
DH is back after his weeklong "excursion" for work to CO. It is great to be able to share a bed again, I haven't slept with him since Sunday morning!
