yes i am. because i got a gold medal at cara's olympic closing ceremonies party (you know the one -- the one with the topless barbie). and if i have a medal, it must be true.
as you've all heard already, the party was great. there was good food, fun conversation, and beer (and topless barbies). but it was also educational. here's a couple of things that i learned.
1. grumperina knits really tiny thing. really she does! we all ooh and aahh about how beautiful her work is and how prolific she is, but the real truth is that her shawls ... they're doll shawls. we know, because we saw one. her socks? tiny little baby socks. really. the hats? fit on my thumb. craziness. this of course takes nothing away from her exquisite work. it just gives one pause.
2. carole's husband dale is a trooper. he's nice, and funny, and comfortable among 30,000 women who talk about yarn. plus, he brings the beer and the bottle opener. do not invite carole without dale. carole's nice and all, but she doesn't bring the beer.
3. there is WAY more drama in blogland than i could ever imagine. where have i been? do i not read the right blogs? has my habit of skimming long posts come back to bite me in the ass? WHY DON'T I KNOW MORE?! eh. i'm so out of the loop.
4. all drawings and contests are fixed. i did not win one prize on sunday. and i'm bitter about it.
