So Fill Me To The Parting Glass, Good Night And Joy Be With You All

Tomorrow night is the VP debates. Did you watch the Presidential debates? Mr. Purl and I discovered a drinking game on the internets after the debates had ended. It sounded fun, so I thought maybe we could have one for the VP debates! It's pretty simple, not too many rules. Every time Sarah Palin opens her mouth, cringe, open a bottle of hooch and down it to drown out her fall back talking points and word salad.

On a lighter note, today marks the start of SOCKTOBERFEST! I have some lovely Lorna's Laces Shepherd sock yarn in edgewater. I haven't picked a pattern yet, but I have some in mind. I'll decide tonight, cast on and show you tomorrow. I am aware of my indecisive nature.

Sigh....Mr. Purl is out of town in Viva Las Vegas. I miss him desperately! He is so appreciated here, and when he's gone, there's a big hole left empty. Come home soon, we love you!
Ta ta, all.

you could also try using the words "maverick" or the phrase "reaching across the aisle" or even "let's talk about my energy plan" for your fun little game. Although, since you have little kids, you're going to need to go with a beer or something light cuz there's gonna be a lot of drinking!

Ha! I'm glad I didn't try that game with the last presidential debate and the words, "My Friends". I would have been sloshed.
