April 25 of 30

Some random things today...

I made my sister some inital earrings - and sent them with Jamie to bring her at work. She loved them! Whoo hoo! I am starting to custom make earrings with "REAL SIZE" scrabble letters, and I am planning on making a whole ton of stitch markers (Knit, Purl, Wool, Yarn, Lace, Frog... you name it...!)

Today, Gibson was on Oprah. He's the largest dog that has been recorded. He on 2 paws is 1 inch taller than Shaq (Basketball player) at 7'2". CRAZY! And I thought my mom's Great Danes were huge?? Gibson is not even standing straight 100% in this shot above on my TV!

From his website, I quote: "When he stands on his hind legs, the 170-pound "Harlequin" Great Dane is more than 7 feet tall, and has a shoulder height of 42.6 inches (topping Harvey's old record of 41.5 inches). Thankfully for everyone, Gibson is just a big, friendly puppy dog.

Actually, he's the tallest dog in the world. Gibson holds several world records, including the world's tallest dog, tallest therapy dog and tallest Great Dane. And he's been turning quite a few heads outside of his native Grass Valley."

Gibson even has a blog. What's this world coming to!? LOL

I personally do not like Harlequins, I'm a Fawn fan. (Golden colored like the pups my mom has). I think Harlequins look like huge dalmations. Or cows... (Black spots on white!)

Oh, and on Oprah, her dog said "I LOVE YOU". You can actually click on the Paw on the main website and "hear" Gibson saying it. It's very odd! (Yeah, and sometimes I think I hear Zeus (my cat) saying Hello - and sometimes even I think he calls my name... But I think I'm just hearing things! LOL!)

I just sent Gibson the dog an email. Yes, I know, weird. There is a contact form, and I told him that I saw him on Oprah today, and us Dane lovers/owners in Canada say hello. LOL... (I need help?!)

Sean & I took another walk. We walked over to the post office, and I mailed a nice package out to my SP 10 pal. I CANNOT wait for her to get it. But being a hostess, I am NOT going to say what was in there (even though I think I rock! hee hee!) until SP10 is over, and I've revealed myself. I am just too damn proud of what I sent her. I think she is going to 158% love it. Oh, I wish I could talk about it. (If you really want to know - email me! I took pics before shipping out of course!) It was a nice walk, and I think I am going to do it almost daily. Plus, the girls at the post office love seeing Sean! He slept most of the way there, but on the way home he realized he could see new things, so he was all attentive to what was around him.

While out, I picked up some 3-6 month size shoes (Gagou Tagou). I got him the exact 4 pairs I got him yesterday, which were in 6-9 month size. Apparently his foot measures up to the 6-9 month size on the back of the shoe package, but the shoes in all reality are WAY too big for him. So I had to get him 3-6 month size, so he can start wearing them right away! Maybe tomorrow I'll have him model the shoes! (This kid is going to hate me one day for all the photos! I swear!)

Tonight, Angela came over, and I picked up stitches to start my square seaming (basically knitting another square to seam it together). I will show it finished tomorrow (since right now, it's not). We watched the American Idol special tonight (no I don't regularly watch the show).... and Angela straightened my hair. It made me feel better. Though, after 2 Advils, I still have a slight headache. (I haven't had a headache since before Sean was born, but while pregnant).

I've updated my sidebar with some new knitting books I've gotten over the last month or so, and I've also updated my froogle wish list, you know, with my birthday coming up and everything! (Hee hee!) Maybe know my family will know what to get me! My parents have already gotten me my birthday presents. (Pink & White Habs jersey as well as a new washer & dryer when I go to pick them out in about 2 months!) Maybe I can start leaving hints to the hubby to get me a gift certificate to the local yarn shop (like he did last year!)
What else going on today? Hmm... not much else that I can think of.

Angela did bring me some really nice presents tonight, for no reason at all! (What are best friends for?!) And, I will photograph those in the morning, and post them up tomorrow!

A year ago today, Jamie & I left to Vegas. I didn't know I was about 5 days pregnant at the time. Jamie however, says I was eating for 2 while in Vegas!

Sorry to hear you had a headache.

Can't wait to see what you sent your SP! I can't believe it's already half over...time is flying this round it seems.
