Cosy and Pink

I know I'm behind the times, but I finally crocheted my first ipod cosy. Didn't use a pattern, just took some balls of Knitpicks Palette and my Nano and started crocheting this morning.

Good things from Another Land

Is this not the hugest hunk of chocolate you've ever seen? I don't want to open it yet. It's like an actual bar of gold to me.
For those of you who know me, this second photo will be the most shocking. A completly CLEAN fridge. I don't think I could have even achieved this alone. It took a Swedish guest with a complete sense of order (think Ikea) to pull this off. Oh, and that there's actual FOOD in the fridge. Not a minor footnote.

America the Green

It's a day about patriotism.
It's a subject that comes to mind more days than not lately.
Speaking with non-Americans about this country is always an interesting experience. I find myself defending my country verbally much more than I would expect. "Don't talk smack about my momma!"
I do make an effort to be realistic and not defensive. I did just spend a month in jury duty (however you want to take that!)

But really, for good, bad and worse, I am an American.
