heh.

Maybe when your sister gets done analyzing pooling patterns, she can work on predicting when TypePad will use the verification code?

Because it seems pretty random to me.

I have verification codes turned off, but have noticed that if you include a link in your post, they turn it on. I did, however, have one pop up the other day when I had absolutely no link so yes, there are the random ones. Maybe just to keep people on their toes.

Moses supposes his toeses are roses, you know.

the first one in this thread, goes right in....the second one, no linky, needs a verf code.

Will this one? Hu nose?

verf codes turned off, hmmmm......

Those are awesome, Jennifer! Just gorgeous.

And it *is* amazing how we stereotype people. "Kitters" have to be a certain "type." Someone said the other day that "girls have to stop NOT wanting to learn about cars because it's not a girl thing." And I'm like... Really? I don't have to learn about *anything* I don't want to learn about. There is too much I WANT to learn about that I know I'll never have time to.

I'd much rather learn French! Or learn to knit!

Is there a "type" that speaks French, knits and doesn't care about cars?

Go Statnerd!

as you're probably not an obsessed knitter,

I did click, but frankly I am well-supplied with obsessions at this point.

What if it was a zombie wearing a Mekons sweater, zrm?

And yelling about engineers? And squirrels?

But did you see the color name?? COME AHNNN (Said in my best Chicahgo nasal twang)!!!

ZOMBIE BBQ!!! You gotta love a yarn company that is making a color called Zombie BBQ.

Yeah, BG!! Yeah!

I tested out of all of my college French and do know how to knit (nowhere near like my sister), but I don't think I fit into a type other than those who took French in high school and did well, and those who had a grandmother/mother who taught them how to knit. I think positions are open in the French knitting club. :)

THundra is having a senior moment...

i DID see the colour name, Jennifer, it was what caused my chuckle in the VERY VERY FIRST comment.

I'm not completely dense, you know. Don't answer that.

I love how "if" commented over on the Knitting blog. How CUTE is he?? Pretty flippin cute I"m willing to bet. :)

I love your sisters knitting! I knit as well but like pretty much everything else I do, I'm half assed at it. I get bored SO easily. I've got about 6 different projects going on right now. They were all supposed to be Christmas gifts... none of them will be finished.
Perhaps for next year.....

((Hugs))
Laura

I wonder if I seem the "knitting type"...

So typical of a Zombie to say heh. Why do all Zombies do that?

"heh"??? That was it?? That was your chuckle??

Laura- I don't think we know you well enough to know if you're the knitting type... perhaps they have an OTC test for that. :)

LOL! I didn't realize thundra (aka, birthday boy) had commented! Yes, that is pretty cute.

And BG did as well!

I've got about 6 different projects going on right now.

I know that feeling. I need more coffee... and interrupted days. Not going to happen.

Now I'm curious why it is "stereo"type. Why stereo? Because so many people think a certain person is a certain type and that general idea has been amplified?

Wanting to know this kind of information is very stereotypical of me.

Stereotype in French: n. stéréotype (analogie général; une conception générale et superficielle de n'importe quel groupe de gens)

Even though it's exactly the same, it's just so much more interesting.

One more thing, Laura, and then I'll let you go... I know you've got things to do... You said you love her knitting. This is not the half of it. This is awesome in the way she programmed the vareagated colors to come out in pattern form, but what you should really see is some of the crazy-ass pattern stuff that, lacy, cantilevered, engineered stuff that she can do, and do while talking! I was happy when I could do cables. :)

ZRM- I just realized typepad throws up the wv if you're commenting too fast. They're onto our Zardoz...

Yes, BG, the French is more intriguing!

I want to make Christmas presents, too! But, I haven't gotten any good ideas yet. I curse Martha Steward and Patti Digh for making me feel like everything has to be *meaningful!* lol

"Here, have a pair of socks. I didn't knit them, but I wanted to. It's the thought that counts."

"Here, have a pair of socks. I didn't knit them, but I wanted to. It's the thought that counts."

You could knit your brow while saying this.

One year, about 10 or more ago, my family decided all gifts we gave had to be made (we drew names so we weren't making for everyone). It was so much fun to do again, and was especially fun because my family was pretty creative. I think the ones I loved the most though were the ones made by people who didn't think of themselves as creative and then they came up with these awesome things.

My father (a very creative person)bailed on it though and gave checks because he said he "made money". The gift was fitting with his humor. :)

Statnerd finds that 'knitting' is protective coloration, or camo at some nice times. Kind of like a nice shabby cloak and a basket of shiny red apples - BWAH-HA-HA-HA!

but like pretty much everything else I do, I'm half assed at it.

Good dog, Laura needs to join 3Bulls! A natural!

LOL!

Grandma! What big teeth you have!

Beege:

The term stereotype derives from the Greek words στερεός (stereos), "firm, solid"[1] and τύπος (typos), "impression,"[2] hence "solid impression".

YOU'RE WELCOME.

One year, about 10 or more ago, my family decided all gifts we gave had to be made

I would just make everyone angry.

But then, it would just be a typical Christmas, wouldn't it?

"Here, have a pair of socks. I didn't knit them, but I wanted to. It's the thought that counts."

You can tell she's in advertising.

Or you could refuse to feed them and make them angry AND hungry.

The Greeks! I knew it!

I need more coffee... and interrupted days.

Interrupted days? I could probably get Substance to write a script that called you over Skype at random times during the day to play Rush songs, but....

The Greeks! I knew it!

This cracked me up.

I dunno why. I think I'm losing it.

Jennifer, that's neat your family did that. I'd love to do something like that. Christmas gift-giving feels so wasteful to me anymore.

My Stepdad and your Dad would have gotten along great. Same sense of humor!

Lost it, OK, pipe down Jennifer.

Interrupted days? I could probably get Substance to write a script that called you over Skype at random times during the day to play Rush songs, but....

LOL! UNinterrupted!!!!

I was interrupted while typing. SEE!!

Lost it, OK, pipe down Jennifer.

:)

Those whacky Greeks have a word and meaning for EVERYTHING!

I have the link all ready for when the Geeb asks "why do they say pipe down? What does piping have to do with being quiet?"

You are στερεόςτύποςing me!

I just don't have what it takes to be a bigwig in the extreme knitting community.

Ok, I'll bite. A Zombie, no less!

What does piping have to do with being quiet?

I know! I know!

I'll let ZRM say it though. I know he's waiting. :)

if you're not quiet, you get beaten with a pipe.

That's not it!! :-P

OK, here.

That's better.

You sent me to a Google page: Pipedown is great 3D puzzle solving fun where you arrange the pipes to allow the ball to drop through to the bottom!

Ok, I found it. Poor Peter!!

'I don't care what happens to me now!' wept Peter, going among the crew, with blood-shot eyes, as he put on his shirt. 'I have been flogged once, and they may do it again, if they will. 'Let them look out for me now'. 'Pipe down!' cried the Captain, and the crew slowly dispersed.

yeah, sorry Beege. You had to look ALL THE WAY DOWN to the second link to find it.

Your life must be agony.

Not as agonizing as Peter's. Sniffle.

Now I'm curious why it is "stereo"type. Why stereo?

It's all about the typefaces.

BUGGRIT.
Printing technology. It's all about the typefaces.

No, I want to say... "You don't understand... this is EXTREME KNITTING!

Replace knitting with Rock Band and I am right there with you. DO YOU KNOW HOW LONG IT TOOK ME TO GET 93% ON EXPERT DRUMS FOR TOM SAWYER? LOOK AT THESE BLISTERS!!!

The patterns are fantastic, but a question: are the Zombies doing the barbequeing or are they being barbequed?

Also, why is our favorite Zombie spelling "colour" with a "u"? Has he always done that and I haven't noticed it before? Is he from London, Wisconsin?

Um, that is some pretty amazing work.

Is he from London, Wisconsin?

Secretly Canadian, I think, and you know how THOSE people are.

You know WHO ELSE had a lot of layers???

a research psychologist by day, she's an obsessed knitter by night

OK, there's the tag line for the movie, but you still have to write the script.

:)
