Loves Liza Minnelli, Dudley Moore, The Beatles, The Who, The Monkees, Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra, Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, Dean Martin, etc. Definitely born in the wrong era.

29 year old girl from the east bay area in California (read as: nowhere on the map) and also loves all things craft-wise. Is an avid cross-stitcher, knitter, crocheter, photographer, writer, loves drawing, and generally anything that involves making something pretty.

Also loves nostalgia. Both from the 60's/70's, from her own childhood in the 80's/90's, and some even older stuff. You've been warned.

Let’s Go Fishing!

OMG, SHOW OF HANDS, WHO REMEMBERS THIS? I remember getting this for Christmas from my grandparents when I was about 4 or 5 years old…. and insisting literally *everyone* there play a round of it with me. This was my favorite game for *the* longest time. Even when I couldn’t get anyone else to play it with me, I had *no* qualms playing it by myself because it was surprisingly challening for a super noncoordinated kid, LOL.  Nevermind that the eye stickers popped off left and right (and I probably ate at least a few of them >_> DON’T JUDGE I WAS LITTLE), nevermind that all the red ones I pretended were the fishes from Mario and I ended up busting enough of them to necessitate the purchase of a second one of these because I didn’t have enough fishes left to play it anymore, LMAO, good god I loved this thing and I’m resisting the urge so, *so* hard not to go hit up ebay for another copy of it. XD This thing was one of the many tactics that helped keep my sanity while I was out of school for 2 months in second grade with rheumatic fever; another favorite were those little handheld water game thingies where you pressed a button on the bottom of it, and it’d either be little rings you had to get onto posts, or cats on a seesaw, or penguins into little pockets, or my FAVORITE one….. the yellow submarine you had to get the divers into. (GEE I WASN’T PRIMED FOR BEATLEMANIA FROM DAY ONE, NOPENOPENOPE XD) You would think this fish thing though, I would have eventually tired of, but… I don’t think I ever really *outgrew* it, per se — I think the second copy of it we had, my younger siblings ended up destroying, and then my brother got a little travel-size version of it and we kinda lost all the fish because they were too tiny and that was that. But seriously… SO tempted right now man to buy another copy and relive part of my childhood, because I had soooo much fun playing with this silly thing. Sure, it was noisy as hell, and sure, sometimes the fishes got stuck and you’d have to mess with them to get them working again, but….on the whole, IT WAS FUN.

The ridiculous part? ….Looking at this pic and seeing the poles in the little holders there, ummm….I NEVER REALIZED THAT’S WHAT THOSE HOLES WERE FOR. *facepalms to infinity*  How the hell did I not know that???

I love craft hauls. :) 17 skeins of my beloved Bernat Satin yarn (my favorite of favorites, omfg) bought as an arbitrary splurge because there was a sale, LMAO, as well as size 9, 10, and 11 knitting needles (holy crap, may I just say that as someone who on average works with size 8 needles, 11&#8217;s are REALLY FUCKING BIG OMG and now I kinda want to randomly buy size 50&#8217;s JUST TO SEE HOW BIG THEY MUST BE if 11&#8217;s look like this XD), a jumbo Perler pegboard (because&#8230;.why the fuck not, haha), and not shown is another Caron One Pound skein of teal yarn, to replace the one I&#8217;ve completely used up in a 2 week span and I&#8217;m not even half done with the blanket it&#8217;s being used for. O_o HOPEFULLY it will be enough or I guess I&#8217;ll have to do another arbitrary craft splurge&#8230;.ohhhhhh darn, that would be terrible, wouldn&#8217;t it? ;)

Even though it’s a small picture, his hair covering his eye makes it sexy… I don’t know why.

Hair fetish. Everybody looks better with some hair own in their eyes. I agree — sexy pic.
