Q is for Sticky Bitches

Do you know what the Q, as in James Bond's Q, stands for? If so, you should have been on our pub quiz team last night!

In spite of my very sketchy knowledge of state capitals and world capitals (I only THINK I know), our team - which kept getting mis-named as "the sweating betties", "the sticky bitches", "the stinking betties" and "sweaty bitches" - managed to pull off a fourth place! Not too shabby! Thanks to Skully's and The Biscuit's mind-blowing grasp of all things superhero, we beat out nine other teams. One of them was quite put out by it, too. ha ha

I think our team name should be The Sweaty Betties or Exactly Your Brand of Heroin. Plus One, of course!

Here are some of the answers we missed:
Quiff
Roger Federer
Joe Jonas
Tokyo
Boston (I have shame about this one. Deep shame)
Moscow
Back to the Future
Torres
Nelson Mandela
and the answer to the question I posed at the start of this post? Quartermaster.

Bad Blogger! No Cake!

Yes, it has been awfully quiet over here lately, hasn't it? Want to know what I've been doing?? Well...

I started driving again after a 6 year break
My mother came to visit
I opened an Etsy shop! www.velvethippo.etsy.com
My husband retired from the Coast Guard after 25 years of service
I started my very first stitch marker Club...and it is a success!
I went to see Elvis Costello and The Police in concert
I went to hear Barack Obama speak
I realized I've got some pretty awesome friends in all sorts of places
I went to see The Cure in concert twenty years on, and still love them
I knit in public with some awesome people and some great dogs


No pictures of any of it. I'm very, very naughty. But at least I've updated!
