Sorry for being gone for so long. Work has been busy. This is a good thing here because in the six months I have been here, that hasn't happened often.
I got my hair cut yesterday at one of the beauty colleges in town ($5!!!!) I didn't tell very many people I was going to do it until I did it. My DH was not too terribly excited. He wanted it shorter than it was, but I went too far for his taste. He doesn't mind too terribly, though. He is a good husband. My shower was soo quick this morning - it was great. I have had my hair long for four years. I didn't like it at all. Most of the rest of my 32 years was spent with short hair. I like it much more!
I finished my hat and scarf set for myself to protect my now very cold head. I didn't make the scarf very long because I was sick of it. I lost interest for some reason and had to force myself to plug along. It is too short. I can wrap it around my neck twick, but there is no "tails" to speak of. I don't really care. Hell - it is March, I don't think I will be using it for a long time. If I want, I can always frog it a bit and add more length. I have more of the yarn. I just don't like forcing myself to knit something if I am not "feeling it."
I started back on Mariah's sleeve yesterday. I saw a good pic of what it is "supposed" to look like at this blog. I wish I had seen that before I frogged. I would be done with both sleeves by now. Ah, well. Moving on.
Rose is sooo sweet to me. She even refers to me in her title from the other day. I can't wait to get the beautiful blue handspun yarn she is making up for me. I feel sooo special.
There seems to be much presence of the Oscars in blog land, and since I watched, I feel I can add my two cents.
First of all, I don’t usually watch the Oscars. I haven’t usually seen many of the movies that are nominated, and I don’t much care for award shows. It is all a bit of a long and drawn out process for me. The award shows I do like, I would rather tape, so I can fast-forward past the boring parts. However, when I found out that not only was Jamie Foxx nominated, but this was the best year for black people, meaning the number of nominations, I knew I wanted to watch. I am not sure what occurred to the muckety-mucks who decided it all, but there sure was a lot of black people involved in the show. Chris Rock hosting - what?!? - I never would have thunk it! Beyonce sure did get a lot of time in. I would have thought the French song would have been done by Celine Dion. I loved it! It is about time! Morgan Freeman deserved an Oscar a long time ago. I can’t believe he only got his first (and only for supporting actor) the other day. (Well, I can believe it, I just don’t get it.) I loved Jamie Foxx’s acceptance speech. I cried (not that that is amazing).

I agree, JenLa, there should be one for countries.
