I've got stitches in my sides

So I've been watching a lot of old British sitcoms lately. A blast from the past indeed. I've been feeling all Christmassy and what better to do that snuggle up with a good comedy running and a bowl of chowder to pass the time?

Now thanks to the wonders of the interweb, no longer do we have to wait a week to watch Hyacinth drive everyone insane with her nitpicking personality or see Basil Fawlty get bullied again.

I was wondering whether anyone thinks the Vicar of Dibley is hilarious? Dawn French on a roll is ripping stuff! (See I've picked up English bits now!)

I wonder if there are any more old fun comedies to get hooked on? I'm not limited to English comedies of course, I love me my American sitcoms too :)

It's just that I'm running out of things to watch now and I need ideas!

Hope everyone's ready for Christmas :) (for those who celebrate) and the rest are making the most of the holidays!

Christmas is almost here!

Are you knitting? Spinning? Crafting? Painting? Quilling? Tatting? Crocheting? Sewing?

There's not much time left - I would know, I haven't done a thing.

Wisdom for the day:

A two idiot explodes a sphere.

First FO for 2010!

Pattern: Lace Ribbon Scarf
Yarn: Crystal Palace Yarns Panda Wool Print (2 skeins)
Needles: 3.5 mm

Notes: Smaller CO sts to get a thinner scarf. Took up exactly 2 skeins and barely a meter left over. Great stitch definition.

Hope everyone's enjoying 2010! It's May and it's raining here. Hallelujah!
