Beware, false advertising

Monday, November 06, 2006

My son thought that this might be a fun activity. Too bad that the kit came with no instructions and said that a 3 year old could supposedly do it without supervision. Our handiwork, a la 1970s flash-back is the pink and blue jobbie in the left. Mr. C is now addicted to the loom and I may need to enrol him in basket-weavers anonymous.

I told you she was crazy (see yesterday's post), he says to me out of the blue. What do you mean? I ask. Your blog friends, they are all backing me up; they think she is crazy too. I might be feeling slightly more annoyed at her today, though, because the babe has come down with the stomach flu, which he likely picked up from McDonald's last night. Right?...

I have to watch Corner Gas this week; one of the characters gets a blog and none of his friends talks to him anymore because they just read about his life on his blog. Oh, yeah, read it on your "blurb".....cracks me up! I am literally laughing out loud right now. (Still can't get into the lol thing).

    I just read your 'blurb', too. I saw the commercial for Corner Gas over the weekend, and though tthat was pretty funny.

    I am backing up Mr. C. Your friend took advantage of a good nature with false promises. I also think it is funny he is using us to vindicate his own opinion.

    Crag;
    I think it is hilarious; both Corner Gas and Mr. C being "backed up" by my blog friends!

    "runs"

    and all i eat is the fish burger -
    ick.

    I want a weaving loom

  1. Blogger Meow said:

    Oooooh, the weaving loom brings back so many memories. I still have one of these boxed kits in an old suitcase in the garage. I must get it out, Chicky would get a kick out of it, I think !!
    Have a wonderful week.
    Take care, Meow

    I sew my fingers together when I try to weave. Holey socks and underwear are just my lot in life.

    Sophie;
    I don't mind it every now and then. Fish burger, though....no wonder ;) Kentucky Fried Chicken has the same effect on me.

    C;
    I'll mail you ours.

    Meow;
    Yes, I think it would be great for an 11 year old; but not a 5 year old, and certainly not a 3 year old!

    Pat;
    I enjoy sewing, but not weaving...I hope your fiance likes to sew; although I would say you should be on your own with the underwear....or start selling that poetry of yours and then you can make money to buy new ones ;)

    I think it's great that your son is into crafts. :) Have you ever tried those little beads that you pin to a board and then bake to make interesting shapes? My friends kids LOVE it.

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Stephanie;
    We amazingly have not tried those yet, but now that you mention it..I think another trip to the craft store is in order.

    he is right, the woman is crazy. children are seldom wrong about people. xx

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Mr. C made the commnet, but my son thinks she is crazy as well...
    Safe travels!
    xx

  1. Blogger Stephanie said:

    They still have those loom thing? I had one when I was a kid...all those ages ago ;)

    We don't get that TV show, but I think that's a funny story. Some of my friends here will read my blog, then just talk to me in person or send an e-mail, instead of leaving comments.

    Also, it turns out that when you meet a blogger friend in person, explaining it to other people can come across as..."oooooh, you met on line!" on occasion.

    Well, yes...I guess.
