March Linky Roundup

5 awesome videos+1 awesome tumblr=Internet SUCCEED.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter Trailer (movie trailer for a book=WIN)

Staticky cat v. balloon. Hilarity ensues.

Godzilla+haiku=EPIC WIN

I’m kinda bummed that I don’t have a Sassy Gay Friend.

100,000 paper airplanes thrown from the top of a building is pure magic.

If this doesn’t melt your heart, you are a heartless bastard.

Knitting

One down…

Last night, I cast off my first Skew sock.

I confess that, for the first time, I am seriously considering not knitting the second sock. The pattern is clearly written, and the sock fits like a dream, but I actually had to pay attention to it. Which sort of defeats the purpose of sock knitting for me. Then again, it would be a damn shame not to have a completed pair.

Anyone else suffering from Second Sock Syndrome?

Footprints in Cashmere

Drying my sweaters next to the window might not be the best idea.

Looking at wool

Remember the Desktop Meme? This is what mine looks like right now.

What are you looking at?

Knitting

Knitting is my lemonade.

This was an entirely crummy week. Thank goodness for knitting. I’m quite certain I’d be lost without it.

OMG NOM

Okay, I’ll admit it. I am not the most avid nor enthusiastic vegetable eater. In an effort to get me eating more veggies, I signed up for a produce delivery service, Door to Door Organics. We got our first box today. I couldn’t be happier, although I was rather intimidated by the collard greens. I’ve never had collard greens before. Never. Never, ever. So, I sent out a call for help via twitter and someone recommended I try Epicurious, where I found this. I decided I’d make that and toss it with some quinoa (also something I am new at) and people, let me tell you, there is only one word for how unbelievably awesome it was.

NOM.

Or maybe OMNOMNOM. I snarfed up 3 servings!

WHY DIDN’T ANYONE TELL ME COLLARD GREENS ARE SO TASTY?!?!
