Hey, you! I know you! I know you!

It was a sunny, warm beautiful day today, a good day for running errands.  At the farmer's market I ran into my friend Matt, who was standing in line to buy Ronnybrook milk and yogurt cheese.  It always makes me happy when I see a friend out and about.  Two weeks ago I had a string of friend sightings on my morning runs in Prospect Park, and they made me unreasonably happy. And about a week before that, I had a super exciting sighting on the fly: Craftivore was in town and I spotted her at the Brooklyn Flea.  We'd never met, but had become Ravelry friends, and I'm a great admirer of her work, esp. her colorwork.  Anyway, unlike when I see someone I "actually know", I was apprehensive about approaching her, worried about seeming like a freaky-deaky stalker.  I saw knit designer Ysolda Teague last summer on the Brooklyn Bridge, but didn't say anything for just that reason.  But the excited part of me won out, and Craftivore couldn't have been nicer, even snapped a photo of us.  It just so freaking charming and small-town to bump in to friends on the street when you live in a city of 8 million.

After seeing Matt I went to Target to return an ugly and ill fitting dress and decided to pick up a few other little things. Like I said, it was a warm day and I was feeling springy, so I bought this:

A good neutral, yet pretty color.  Yeah, well, I went to put it away and found this:


Well, I'm nothing if not consistent. 

Oh, and the title of this post?  It comes from 1980s SNL skit, featuring Harry Shearer and Martin Short as aspiring synchronized swimmers.  Please watch and enjoy.

Indeed you are consistent! That is really funny.

That picture of you and Craftivore is awesome. What a great blogger moment. I did that at Rhinebeck the first year I went. Saw someone I recognized and introduced myself. But at that time, I never showed my face on my blog and I was 7 months pregnant.

I think I just cried a little laughing so hard at that skit. I love those guys.
