Local cockroach death ruled a suicide

Monroe, LA- Allied press
Local residents watched in shock as an unidentified adult male cockroach or climbed up the wall behind the stove, onto the exhaust hood and then leap into a pan of frying bacon grease in a home on Bon Aire Dr mid Saturday morning. The pan had fortunately been emptied of all bacon before the tragedy took place.

“I remember calling to my husband telling him that there was a cockroach on the wall behind the stove, I didn’t have time to do anything before he jumped,” said the female resident of the home who wishes to remain anonymous.

Local authorities are not sure why the cockroach chose to commit suicide, but they speculate that the smell of the bacon grease may have been to attractive to resist. It is not apparent if the roach was a transient or native to the home, however the residents are hoping for the first.

The roach was put to rest with the bacon grease that he was fried in a modified Miller Lite can.

In all seriousness, that was disgusting. I made sure to spray the whole entire house after that. I can't handle them in the house.

Ugh and YAY

Well the yay is that I can finally tell the world that I am expecting! Here is the first picture of the little jelly bean due in December.

The ugh is the first couple months I'm feeling like dirt. Needless to say I have been extremely unproductive. Unfortunately I won't be dyeing much yarn, and even knitting feels like a chore. The meds that the doc gave me just put me to sleep. With no relief in site for at least the next month (hopefully I will enter blissful pregnancy after that), I doubt that I will be up to much.

It's killing me not to dye yarn cause I have a bunch waiting for me. I finally decided on a pattern and yarn for Heather's next wedding shawl. The new pattern was found in a German knitting pattern book from ??... Good thing I don't have to read German to read charts.

Yes I know its a table cloth, but in wool it can be a shawl and very pretty and lacy, etc.
Well that is about all the tummy will give me today, be back with pics of my accomplishments next time.

On a break

Knitting and I are on a break right now. With all of the drama in the end of the semester I just don't feel like knitting and I should be together right now. I am afraid that we could have a permanent break up if knitting doesn't give me just a little space.... Don't tell knitting about the solitaire, it might get jealous.

The reality of it is that with the end of the semester pressure, I just don't have the time or the energy to do much of anything. Solitaire seems a little easier on me since it requires very little brain power. I have had a few break through in the lab, so I want to actually start working again, but I don't have time!!! All of my creative juice has been focused on writing these last two papers and then its finals and back to knitting. If you don't see me for the next week, there are a lot of reasons....

Well its off to bed for me, sweet dreams about how I wish I was 19 again for dumb reasons.
