Friday Shuffle - No Control Edition

So as y'all have by now gathered I have purchased (and even received as a gift from Ginnie) an insane amount of sock yarn in the past two weeks. To be fair, some of it was purchased for me to make a hat for myself but I'm likely just kidding myself. I hate to wear hats so those skeins will probably turn into socks as well. And I'm drooling over Rowan Tapestry in the Whirlpool colorway I purchased today that I'm going to use to make a scarf for myself. And did I mention the cashmerino I bought to make more Fetching handwarmers for myself?

Out of control, impulse buying at its best and it didn't stop there.

Yesterday after I met my yarn dealer and knitting pimp visiting friend, Laura, in Karstadt and we got our morning wool fix we went down to the basement floor so I could get some trashbags...'cause you know when you need trashbags what better place to get them than in a four story department store?...and we passed the tiny American foods section. That's when I heard the siren's song.

Two years ago when I was last home for a visit, Darling Mollie got me turned on to kettle corn. If crack has a junk food equivilent, it's kettle corn. Sweet, salty, popcorny, completely irresistable and off the irony chart with how tasty it is with a cold Diet Coke. There to tempt me was its microwavable equivalent right there on the shelves.

I understand that one needs to practice self denial to achieve enlightenment and if the amount of yarn and microwavable kettle corn purchased is any indication as to how I'm doing in that department, it's pretty well certain that I am doomed. And picking popcorn hulls from my teeth.

Time for Bixente the iPod to shuffle. His self control is amazing.

Ooh, Seven Year Ache, perhaps my favorite song of all time.

And Gordon Lightfoot. Can't go wrong there...

Aaron Neville AND Gordon Lightfoot -- irresistible. Did you know Aaron Neville has a new cd out where he does Otis Redding's Sitting on the Dock of the Bay -- one of my all-time favorite songs?

I haven't heard Love Grows Where My Rosemary Goes since I was a teenager but I still know almost all the words.
