I've had good days before. I've had great days before. I've done stuff that's not half bad. I ain't never done nothing perfect. Hats off to Matt Buehrle. It's been 5 years since an MLB perfect game and over EIGHTY since the Sox had one.

Math is hard.

Not really, actually. I love algebra, and I'll be the first to say that Excel makes me almost giddy. My math problem is less about the calculating than it is the visualizing -- that is, when you have to do the math in 3D. Maybe I'm too impatient to get sewing, but I'm sick of figuring out how to resize the DS Drunk Love quilt.

So, I ain't doing it no more. Luckily for me, there are plenty of other quilts in the book that are easy to resize. Like this one:

I'm using the Drunk Love colors - taxi cab yellow and lemon yellow with a turquoise back, so it should be interesting. I've got about 44 more squares to cut before I get to sewing!

Thanks to Ta-Nehisi for letting us all know that THE ELECTRIC COMPANY (the original GOOD one) is on Hulu. Luvs.
Two great tastes that go great together.

First there was Reese's. Then there was M.C. Hammer ... and Darth Vader.

I'll post some original content next week. For now, though, you can't touch this. Peace.
