Finished Project #6

It must appear that I'm just a knittin' fool, eh?  Not really.  I'm just making some simple items for the moment since I'm surrounded by single skeins of sock yarn.  Right now, I'm making a pair of fingerless mitts out of the left-over yarn from that pair of socks up there.  I'll share a photo when they're finished.

In other news.  I discovered a channel on our non-cable/non-satellite TV selections.  CoolTV and they play music videos from the past 20 to 30 years.  Wow, have music videos been around that long?  Damn, I'm getting old.  That brings me to another topic.

Gotye "Somebody That I Used to Know" has gotten stuck in my head since I saw the video yesterday so I had to go to Amazon.com to find him.  I found him.  I've listened to that sock about 10 times today because it's just awesome.  So are the rest of his songs that I downloaded.

Kimbra was the female artist in the video with him.  Of course, one artist led to another and I ended up buying her CD, too.  

Gin Wigmore was also featured on CoolTV.  You got it.  I downloaded her CD too.  She reminds me a lot of Amy Winehouse.  I was rather saddened when Amy passed away as I'm a big fan of her's.  I bought her last CD, too.

 Amazon.com is really going to love me.  I did get an Amazon.com charge card so I'm now earning points towards future purchases.

Kindle - will I ever read all the books that I have on that thing?  I downloaded and installed my Kindle reader for my PC so I can sit and knit easier while reading.  It was amazing how much progress I made on my current selection "Whispers from the Ashes" by Patricia Hester.  I now have 12 pages of books to read.

Between all the books and all the yarn I'm not sure I have enough lifetime left.  On TV a week ago they said that the average life expectancy for women is around 80.  That's less than 30 years for me.  I better retire real soon so I can just stay here and read and knit and sit in my yard and watch mother nature and take photos with the 30 cameras that I have.

What to do, what to do?  Oh the frustration of it all.......
