Last Friday, a big day -- In which the knitting girls got together for the usual...talking, knitting, talking. Mette's had had a birthday a couple weeks ago and being the fucking thoughtless people we are, both Christine and I had forgotten. That's nice. Not really. So this time we did it up right with a limoncello cake, horns, hats and presents.
Last Thursday, a big day -- In which I began my political career. If elected, you are reading the words of the new secretary of Maberga. It's a modest start but an important position. I will, if elected by my fellow Mabergini, have the honor of collecting the annual dues. That's nice. Not really. But here's what happened. Neighbor Giuseppe called:
L-- Si', yes Giuseppe. How are you?
G -- LINA! You wan be secretar? (that's how giuseppe speaks, he doesn't finish his words. of course he's speaking italian, sort of)
L -- But Giuseppe, I don't speak italian well enough to be the secretary.
G-- LINA. cours' you speak ital'. we got t' pa' the bu'doz' fo' cleanin' the lan'sli'
L -- Oh, right. We can't get the money to pay the bulldozer who cleaned the landslide without a president and a secretary.
G -- O'. like I sa'
L -- ok. I'll do it if you are the president
G -- O'! (that's Giuseppe's way of saying yes)
We're having campaign t-shirts printed "Maberga 2014 - Januzzi/Cornwell" Big Day.
Yesterday, a big day -- in which my new and improved Maberga Designs website opened for business. Now you can buy all the fun things I make (papier mache, knitwear AND jewelry) right from the site. That's nice....it really is. Please check it out if you can at mabergadesigns.com.
