Fun...For The Right Price.

Fellow Maine-ahs will recognize the name, "Reny's." This is a local chain which claims to be part of "the Maine experience." Ignore the rockbound coast, majestic pines and spunky lobsters sprinting for their lives from butter wielding tourists...go to Reny's!!! In essence, its a place where merchandise goes to die. And be purchased by cheap Sheep who like to think that they are getting a bargain on anything from crackers to sweaters. Gotta love it!

Today, I made quite the find! It's a crochet thingie that will allow me to make beaded bracelets and necklaces with which to adorn my wattle-y neck. 'Cuz that's just where I want all attention drawn. Oh, yeah. Basically, it seems to be along the lines of the old "Knitting Nancy" spool doo-hickey that appears to be making something of a comeback:

...and the colors! Far out, man!
But the best part is the name: Make It Fun! It is promising me fun!!! I need fun. I crave fun. I'm too lazy to go out and look for fun. I only had to pay $4.99 for fun. That works.
As tomorrow represents the last day of toil for the week, I am putting this little gadget aside to fiddle with during the 48 hours in which I can forget that I have a job and all. I'm thinking that I can figure this thing out in a relatively short time as it is actually manufactured for use by children. There will be a short learning curve (followed by swearing, weeping and self-recrimination) and I can't wait. Perhaps by Sunday I can post a picture of The Sheep draped in stunning beaded adornments. Perhaps this will also detract readers from the fact that I have several WIPs that just don't seem to be going anywhere fast.
Let's get this party started!

That sounds like FUN! Sorry I haven't commented in a while. From your previous posts sounds like there's been less FUN (dentist, work, cats preventing sleep etc). So here's to more FUN.
