It's hard to be blue when you're this close to the Cal Band - close enough to feel the sound vibrations in your chest.
Of course, you might have noticed that they're singing. They sang and played at the Berkeley Breakfast Club this morning, which means they were doing their musical magic at 7 a.m. and doing a very good job, too! I guess this weekend it's a good thing to be blue, as long as it's paired with gold for tomorrow's Big Game against Stanford. Here. In Berkeley. Kickoff's at noon. Traffic will be a nightmare most of the day.
I may not get to the Big Game bonfire tonight, as my bonfire buddy's gone, but Mr. Celia and I will watch the game on tv and then run out to the back porch to hear the cannon go off every time Cal scores.
And I will knit, friends. In between the cheering and the groaning I'll knit. I started this cap last night, because someone left his cap in a cab in Boston and it's chilly here these days.
And there's this Pseudo Tsuki* scarf to work on.
And the ends need to be woven in on this square and it needs to be blocked before I can send it off to comfort Jenn.
And this sock needs a toe and a mate, don't you think?
So there's plenty to keep me busy while I watch. And you know what they say, "Busy hands are happy hands."
Cal Band GREAT! GO BEARS!!!
Oh, and I forgot to do this yesterday , there's a guy named Scott who has this cool project measuring the speed of a meme. He says he's a poor graduate student in desperate circumstances, if you believe that. But it just takes a minute to help him know the power of the knitblogs. Ping technorati and you're done!.
*I should be knitting it in Artfibers Tsuki, but instead am experimenting with Kidsilk Haze from the stash.
