When I'm not staying until semi-ungodly hours at work, I like to come home and lay on the futon and watch Cash Cab
. It's this guy who drives around New York City, picking up random passengers and then quizzing them with fairly easy, general-knowledge questions and handing out cash. I totally want to be on this show, and not just because I sort of think the host is cute (although, I must confess, I thought he was cuter before reading that he had appeared on Hope and Faith
; he now must be cast aside), but because my mind is stuffed full of random facts. I know celebrity gossip, knitting patterns, and random crap, but have almost no retention of world events or professional skills.
But I would rock Cash Cab
Next: Will I place at the Durham fair in the hand knitting categories? Or will I shamefully slink away from the Needlework building?
I have just spent over two hours chopping, cooking, mixing, soaking, sprinkling, and simmering the many, many ingredients that go into Cooks Illustrated
's "Really Good Mushroom Lasagna." I just hope it really IS really good mushroom lasagna. I delight in the Cooks Illustrated principle of dirtying every bowl in the house to achieve the ultimate recipe. I just wish the subscription came with a dishwasher.
In knitting news, I am entering mittens and socks in the Durham fair
. First prize is $4!
It makes me love Connecticut just a little tiny bit.
