In brief:

PARF was brilliant. Ever so much music-making, gorgeously brisk fall weather, tasty and (comparatively) cheap food, pristine restrooms, warm and welcoming cast, crew and crafters. Also, Surprise!Cara and the always awesome Coyote Run.

Facebook can bite me.

Kitty détente is experiencing a bit of a setback.

So many books to be read. SO MANY! I keep giving them away, and more keep piling up. Will someone please pay me to read whilst eating apple-and-Nutella crepes for forty hours a week? The crepes are negotiable.

I'm itching to try my hand at knitting once more, but I'm painfully clumsy with crochet. I suspect that knitting=heartache and humiliation for me.

A more responsible lifestyle starts tomorrow! Exercise! Smart nutritional choices! Positive thinking! I even bought my yearly yogurt. Maybe this time I'll be able to force it down. Stupid vile aftertaste.

Nina and Paulie are both rather accomplished knitters. I'd guess that Paule has more free time, and is easily bribed with fantasy handmedowns.

when I knitted I found it easier than crochet. Give it a shot.

Ah, I really miss PARF. It's such a lovely place.

I love knitting. I'm less able at crochet, though I can do the basics.

We have a local band called Coyote Run. Is this the same group? If so, I love them too. They're always a big draw at First Night here.

The reading is a life requirement from my point of view, and could you share the crepe recipe please. I'm a sucker for both apples and Nutella.

I am determined to knit. Even if it's just basic; I can't even think about counting, changing yarn and/or stitches, increasing and decreasing... I'll start with straight lines and see how well I do.

If it's this Coyote Run, then they're the same. Fantastic musicians, lovely folk.

As for the crepes, I've never made them. I just assumed that whatever ephemeral, lit loving employer was signing my paychecks would foot the bill for a personal chef. Since that's unlikely, I'll just have to give it a go myself; if they turn out well, I'll gladly share the recipe!

Same band. Wonderful music.

My brother in law makes good crepes. I will have to inquire of him.

You could always come visit and I could teach you to knit. It didn't snow here. I have snuggly kitties.

Wow... apples and nutella. I think we have apples here...

PARF was awesome! I wish we had a shiny red pirate ship at NYRF. :-)

How gorgeous is that? And I wouldn't say 'nay' to real, crenelated walls and hedges.

It was SO lovely to see you and your mum there. The both of you were so kind and supportive of the CPs, I only hope you got to enjoy the Faire to the fullest!

I love your icon, your crepes sound wonderful, and you have knitted me two wonderful scarves which I still use, so there is nothing wrong with your knitting!

And were our geographical locations more harmonious, I'd take you up on it.
