I have reached the age where it seems that everyone I know has started giving birth. Knitting is a rather time-consuming activity, so I've turned to my second love, sewing, for some instant satisfaction. I recently set off two sets of baby bibs:

The pattern is a great one from Bend the Rules Sewing - and I had so much fun picking out the fabrics. Forget cartoon bunnies and cutesy flowers, babies need pirate skull bibs. And ones with flames on them.

Random things that have been on my mind lately:

1. I read a lot of book reviews, since I don't want to spend time on something that turns out to suck. But I wish people would stop criticizing memoirs by saying they are "self-indulgent." It's a MEMOIR! It automatically is self-indulgent by it's very nature!

2. I also wish people would stop describing things, particularly food, as "nutty." "The butter gives it a wonderful nutty flavor," or "This wine has a nutty taste," or even "Adding olive oil makes it more nutty." Butter, wine, and olive oil are not nutty. Peanuts are nutty. Cashews are nutty. The only way to make something nutty is to put nuts in it.

3. There is a man who works out at my gym who wears the most inappropriate shorts I've ever seen a man wear in public. I'm pretty sure I own underwear larger than these shorts. Think women's boy-short bathing suit bottom. Spandex. Bright red. These shorts leave nothing to the imagination. NOTHING. It's horrible... but I can't look away, like a train wreck.

4. One of my co-workers was recently arrested for biting another guy's ear off. I'm not scared he'll do anything to me, but every time I see him at work I can't help but thinking, "Dude, that guy bit someone's ear off!"
