Some Days, the Universe is Against You.

And other days, the planets align, the clouds part and Heaven smiles down upon you. Today was that day.

Look what came in the mail just moments ago!!



Not only the stupid car title that I've been waiting for, but also the Discontinued Noro Kuryeon 139 from Knitting-Cat. And get this - IT'S EVEN THE RIGHT DYE LOT!!!!!! I wept with joy.

So now all I have to do is get the title to the claims guy tomorrow, put the check in the bank, and get a cashier's check for $2502.00 made out to the Reverend Aldi. Yes, I think it would be funny to pay for his cashier's check with a cashier's check. I should tell him that our bank charges three dollars for a cashier's check and ask him for change.

Excuse me while I exhale. (insert sigh of relief)

Ok, moving on, a few folks asked questions in the comments sections recently, and I'd like to address them, if I may.

Criosa inquired about the presence of Captain Underpants among my purse's contents. Captain Underpants is on my key chain. It was the closest thing I could find to a super hero in Power Panties.

Jo asked me to explain Grant's Farm. I can pretty much recite the whole tour. The land was originally owned by the Dent family and when Ulysses S. Grant married Julia Dent in 1848, her parents gave them 80 acres of land as a wedding present. The land is now owned by the Busch family (as in Anheuser-Busch), and is home to rare animals from six of the seven continents which you can see when you ride the tram through the deer park.

Then at the end of the ride, you are dropped off at an area where you can feed goats, watch animal shows, and see the World-Famous Budweiser Clydesdales. But the best part is that you can get two free samples of the Budweiser product of your choice. There's no charge to get in, but you have to pay $8 to park. If you're a genius like me, you get a parking pass for $30 at 9am on Opening Day and it more than pays for itself by the time it closes for the winter.

You can also get free beer samples at the Brewery, but the glasses are smaller and you have to walk through an hour-long tour to get it. The tour is interesting, but I'd rather just skip to the end.

And finally, Brother Ed asked me to explain Cooter Rootin'. Well, Ed, it means a trip to the gynocologist. Do you use the word Cooter over there? It's another word for snatch. If not, I'm sure all of us would love for you to enlighten us with the UK terminology for female genitalia. And hell, just for kicks, give us some dick words too so we can impress our friends.

Here's a pic I snapped for you all yesterday.



Why, yes, I do take my knitting EVERYWHERE.

SiressYorkie said...

FINALLY it's up!

Damn, PK, have you no shame?

Although the bigger crime is the hideous decor of that office. I mean, really...mustard wall paper and a naugahyde stool in this day and age?? COME ON.

How did the rootin' go?

cpurl17 said...

Oh no you didn't!



Congrats on the title & dyelot!

C'tina said...

PAJNSTL said...

Glad your titles came! :)

No, no, no, no. Have the cashier's check made for $2499. ;) Then tell him, upon questioning, that your bank charges 3 bucks for the cashier's check. Two can play that dumbass game of his. lol

Lol Ed... Just tell him its the female equivalent to the lil pooper rootin the guys get. :D

Poops said...

Now, what would have been a good picture is the one taken from that stool in the corner.

Priceless.

I'm sure you'll email it to me. I'll put it next to the one of your blouse bunnies...

Eryn said...

Yay title!

Yay knitting at the GYN!

Bezzie said...

Oh.dear.lord!!

LilKnitter said...

You're going to own a house!! I knew, somehow, it would work out for you; surely the cosmos is aware of just how awesome you are, and wouldn't let you down!

A Rootin' picture. Complete with stirrups. Only PK!

Ed said...

*BLUSH*no comment.

buttercup said...

Speechless.

AnneKaelber said...

De-lurking to tell you how much I *love* reading your blog! I'd lost track of it for a while and I've been giggling and snorting for over a day while catching up. I swear, we could be sisters---except I take Cymbalta instead. ;)

You've probably already received many offers, but I'll be your Middle of the Night friend!

Here's a Question for your Conversation with Penny Karma: Tattoos---do you have them or want them? If so, where and of what?

Marg. said...

Two things: Yay for the title FINALLY showing up!

And, I'm laughing my butt off over that last picture. :D

Ah man, I hadn't gone onto bloglines for a month and missed your saga! I could have gone over to the Dept of Rev for you and hand delivered your title to STL! God knows I was going back and forth enough...well, I'm glad it's all sorted out. I hope the move goes well!

Wendy said...

Knitting in stirrups! Classic.

I'm a little disappointed, though. I would have expected some color on the old tootsies.

DomesticOverlord said...

Great, no Bezzie's going to be after all of us to provide photographic evidence we got our junk checked out. I'm really not on the mood to have anyone film my downstairs... again.

ZantiMissKnit said...

I believe the Brits call it a "fanny".

You crack me up, girl.

Rachel said...

Oh my dear god. That is not what I was expecting at the end of your post. Well done, friend.

Bad Amy said...

Mwhahaha... at first glance I thought you were having a pedicure! I'm dippy like that sometimes.
