Pasta for Breakfast

At David's suggestion we had some of the leftover curried chickpeas over penne - breakfast for me, supper for him at 10PM. It was yummy, and I had some chocolate for dessert.

On my way home from work this morning, I bought two balls of Paton's Classic Wool - the only pure wool yarn they're still making, I think - to make the sweater sampler from Jacqueline Fee's Sweater Workshop book. I may try to cast on tonight, or I may decide to go to bed early, as I'm still pretty tired.

Celebrity Foolishness

When I got up this evening and was reading through news headlines, I read that Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes's baby girl had been born and that they'd named her Suri, which I found just hilarious. I wonder if she'll grow up to look like this.

It has been suggested that I look into whether they're selling their ultrasound, but one of the things I need is a probe for doing transrectal studies (I'm not joking. This is essential for early pregnancy diagnosis & for evaluating the prostate in male 'pacas. In dogs I should be able to see the prostate with a transabdominal probe). If they had one, I'm thinking I would be afraid to use it.

My thought about the babe was "Who cares?", but I admit I probably don't hold the correct attitude towards celebrities...

Actually, Ted, I'd say "Who cares?" is probably just the right attitude. I just got a good laugh out of the name choice.

Great minds think alike! It was a totally good giggle!

And it would have been pure Twilight Zone if they'd named her "Huacaya".

Speaking of names, what is "Cabezalana"?
