5 Things About Wednesday, August 13th: Random Blog Post Generator Edition

  • You know, after being single for quite a while you can forget just how nice quality cuddles can be. And kisses. And weeknight sleepovers. And being spooned. Yummers.
  • Mmmm, homemade hot chocolate. The slight minus of having to use soy milk is well and truly compensated by using 70% cocoa Lindt dark chocolate. That looks after the chocolate aspect really well indeed. Well, yes it does.
  • I need to knit a pair of these. I need to knit them because I really, really want to own a pair. In a nice tweedy olive green maybe.
  • After ranting about cinema popcorn earlier, I realised I can't remember the last film I saw in a cinema. It's been ages, or I'm starting The Big Forgetting. I think it's been ages.
  • I'd love to learn how to wind a turban. You know, properly. Like the ones grand old Sikh men with big beards and extravagant waxed mustaches wear. Or even something more casual, or maybe more brocade Bollywood wedding style. (BTW, I just Googled 'turban' to find some linky dinks and discovered... www.ratemyturban.com. Awesome.)

Did you find this site with hot-to videos?

I believe the Bollywood ones you're referring to are more of a Rajasthani style, though I could be wrong.

Mel, nice links! Thanks.

Kris, I didn't realise you'd made them. They're a great looking sock.

DV, it was on meg'z Ravelry profile that I first spotted them! Nice.

I 100% agree to point number one. However, you only give quality to those that are quality to start with. Best spooning I have *ever* had occurred last Tues night. XXX
