Today, I learned that it is UNLAWFUL to bring tear gas on the train.
Well, DARN the luck! I was just thinking the other day, "Ya know what I should start lugging around with me? Tear gas."
But seriously...what an odd thing to spell out as being unlawful to carry onto the train...I mean, how many people who are NOT a bit...other-directed...are going to look at that advisory of unlawfulness item and go, "Ohmahgosh...I had NO IDEA the canister of tear gas in my duffel bag was UNLAWFUL! I had better put it in the trunk of my car straight away!"?
Ah, this world I live in...it so frequently bemuses (and amuses) me.
In knitting news, I am almost to the beginning of the last block of the second strip. Which means I have finished (almost) seven of the twelve total blocks in the blanket, or roughly 58% of the total project. (Not counting the assembly and knitted-on border...or possible fabric backing, which I am toying with adding because I am certifiably nuts.)
NOT THAT I AM COUNTING, MIND YOU.
(Oh yeah. Blankets, afghans...interminable...forgot that little detail...)
