Let's put the "fun" back in dysfunctional! With a cherry on top...

"with the exception of Lisa, we were not a hugging people. In terms of emotional comfort it was our belief that no amount of physical contact could match the healing powers of a well-made cocktail..."

I giggled when I heard that. I recently enjoyed several hours of David Sedaris on CD while I drove to meet a friend. My gosh, this dry humored, vocabulary rich book was a fun one - every once in a while, I would bust out laughing in the car - the dysfunction - gosh, is that the Amercican way? Well, it was good fun.

I finished knitting a cupcake hat from Itty Bitty Nursery by Susan B. Anderson this weekend for my little one. The pictures aren't great - it was dreary out and I interrupted "Ratatouille" for these poses - geez, mom. OMG, it is so cute - I almost don't want her to wear it to school - because what if it does not come home? Reminds me of the commerical where the mom is taking collateral from the kid to take Tupperware to school - kind of the same thing. I need to knit up a "Gladware" equivelent for school, huh?

David Sedaris is hysterical. Thanks for reminding me. I'll have to have a peak over at audible and see if they have any of his books on audio.

So adorable! Cute, Cute, Cute! I haven't heard of Sedaris ever--I'll have to check it out though. I can tell you this though my family was not big on hugging and kissing and passing around the I love yous..... Looking back I wish that we had been. I have changed that with my family:)

The cupcake hat is heart-meltingly cute! Love the picot edge detailing on the white part.

David Sedaris is awesome. I need to try listening to his books on tape in the car -- they would make the drive from Chicago to Mpls. seem much shorter, I think.

That hat is great!! Every time I see you post about Itty Bitty Hats or Itty Bitty Nursery, it reminds me that I NEED to get those. They are just the cutest little things!

And I agree with the Tupperware collateral thing. I hate sending my girls to school with good hand-knits. Even sweaters. I feel like the teachers aren't going to make them wear smocks for art projects and they're going to ruin all my hard work!

That hat is sooo cute! As is your little cupcake! I know how you feel though about not wanting to have it lost! It is not like mittens that you can clip to her jacket (or maybe you can!)!

Cute hat!
I love David Sedaris. I used to read his books on the bus when I lived in Chicago and would always end up laughing out loud!

That is super cute!!! Love it! and I'm not much of a reader but I did read David Sedaris, "Dress Your Family in Corduroy and Denim" - I enjoy his humor too :)

I am listening to David Sedaris right now on my ipod. It's the book about corduroy, can never remember the title. I love him and his books are even better on audio.

Cute hat, cuter daughter!
Hope you are well.
