Lately I’ve been having a problem with snacking when I watch TV so have decided the best way to fix that is by starting some craft projects to keep myself busy. Except I’ve realised it isn’t the watching TV that’s the problem. Mostly we watch TV on DVD and it’s the bit in between episodes where I feel compelled to get up and make a snack.
In the past few weeks we’ve watched three seasons of 24. That’s a lot of breaks and a lot of snacks. So far, this is my opinion:
Terri Bauer – too dumb to live. Seriously don’t go discussing “feelings” with the woman slept with your husband. Doubly so if they are an evil genius.
Kim Bauer – should stop pointing guns at people unless she intends using them.
Nina Myers – awesome!
Tony Almeida – hot. I don’t know how all these terrorists get caught because if Tony was my boss, I’d just sit around swooning all day.
David Palmer – should spend more time being all presidenty and less time wanting to snuggle with Jack Bauer.
Sherry Palmer – what the hell is going on with her hairline, it comes halfway down her face!
So last night I started my first project. I’d seen a picture in a knitting book of a beanie with holes in the top for you to put your pigtails through. I call it a Pigtail Beanie. So instead of actually knitting one, I got an existing beanie and unpicked part of the seam then resewed it with embroidery thread. It looks mighty awesome.
I’ve also been wondering if I could shoot someone if I had to. I really think I could. I’d like to learn to shoot. It’s been something I’ve been thinking about for some time. Does anyone know where there is a gun shooting place in Melbourne? I know there used to be one in Essendon but it burnt down so I don’t think it’s there any more.
