I'm feeling pretty giddy this morning. Perhaps it's the coffee, or perhaps the tar fumes from my neighbor's roofing project (which smell weird, but surprisingly not horrific) are going to my head. Whatever's the cause, I'll take it.
I share with you something that I did this morning: I consolidated my Bloglines and Newsgator feed lists. About a year ago Bloglines became blocked at work. Apparently I was violating Rule #5 by attempting to access Bloglines. I could discover neither the text of Rule #5 nor of what it was a part. Newsgator, however, never suffered the same fate. So, what began as two identical feed lists slowly diverged as things were added and subtracted from one but not from the other. I hope that I can let the Newsgator list slowly fade into oblivion (never liked the format over there).
Add to that the fact that one by one all of my knitblog reads were being blocked (again with the Rule #5 stuff) and that meant that my blog reading (something I really enjoy) was slowing being stolen from me. And even when I could get to a blog, the photos and comment application were often off limits (yup, #5).
So, this morning, in a bit of internet housekeeping, I updated my Bloglines list. Whew! It's fun to be reading all of you regularly once again.
Something else I did (yesterday) was to get out and about. I had to buzz by Windsor Button one last time. Someone, please tell me where the WB equivalent is in NYC, because I know that I'm gonna need it. WB is just the right mix of a proper yarn store with a side of Michael's or AC Moore thrown in.
This greeted me at the door:
Mmm, Malabrigo Laceweight. And, the kind folk at Windsor Button also pointed out (hee, hee) that the Addi Lace needles are in stock.
Ah, Windsor Button, I'm going to miss you.
