Now Presenting

I love arriving home and finding a package for me. Especially when it is something I have been waiting for. And what was so gloriously in my mailbox when I got home, my lovely stalked friends? What was so cleverly disguised in a plain, brown, cardboard box to keep local knitters from raiding my mail and facing federal charges? Why it was none other than The Book! Yes, that one. The one and only Harlot Book. I can now bring stalking to a whole new level.

Mine all mine! Glee! Posted by Hello

I have already read quit a few pages. Witty, insightful and just down right Harlot good. So much so that I can even forgive the disparaging remark against crochet on page 45. *Ahem* Yeah, it stings a bit, but it's Steph. She's famous. She's my polar opposite. That makes it good stuff. Besides, I know most knitters think crochet is beneath them. I just don't give a rat's ass about that. Because I love to crochet just as much as I love to knit and paint. AND Because I have The Book. There are knitters out there that are being told they have to wait until May to get a copy.

You may envy me now.

Hope everyone has a great day!!

I want you to understand Angie my pet, that the largest reason that I hate crochet is because I suck at it. The phrase "sour grapes" has never been more apt.
I'm so glad you like the book, I'm honoured that you bought it.

Well Steph, I really am enjoying the book. You have a gift for writing and it shows. You've made me laugh several times and I came close to tears at least once. You're insights are very touching and, well, HUMAN. Now if you'll excuse me, I must get back to stalking you.

Woot! Angie, I got my copy today. No time to read it yet, but......Of course, I'm lurking over at Ryan's and leaving epic-length comments when I should be working, but that's another story. Oh, yes, and now I'm here. .... ;-)

Congrats Norma on getting the bookbookbook! It's just chock full of Harlot goodness. You'll love it. And I understand the whole "I work for weirdoes who won't pay me to read blogs." I actually take lunch at my desk so I can read all of them during lunch. Then I check back periodically through the afternoon to read comments. Stalk stalk stalk. Hehe

Oh! And thanks for stopping by!
