Review and you


I love this image because my brother created it. It is man-centric (notice the boobs but also the baby is just born - wearing a hat, but no pants - winkle evident) but also is woman and baby positive. The image is full of love and boobs and winkle. It is not about anything else. Does anyone know where this image comes from?


I blog because a whole lot of what has happened to me in the last few years has been out of my control. Writing about it (or not) gave me a feeling of control. Also, it's fun.

Two people I love who you should go check out just because I said so:

Julie who has been my friend through many dangers, and Woodrow who says he will not be my internet friend anymore unless I turn off the spam blocker on my comments function. If you are not reading their blogs, you are a punk-ass. Get to it.

To the right you will find a new poll. It asks you to indicate whether (and what) you would like me to knit for you.

I am preparing a mighty tribute post for you, my readers. If you wish to be linked and included, please comment. (Lurkers: feel free to comment anonymously so you can preserve lurker status. I love you, too).

I put socks, and 'yes' for the other poll. I don't usually do those, but you are special.

I think I may be too new an interwebs bud for you to knit for or anything, I'm just commenting because you are nice and I like socks and I like the term 'penis cozy'.

hmmm.. what a great word, that "winkle." and such a neat image.

i wonder what has happened to you these last few years. i may have to read back and do some stalking...

i will go do your poll right now. i am very intrigued by the penis cozy. ;)

Rick said...

Well, I definitely read your blog and I actually look forward to your posts much more than most of the 78 blogs in my googlereader. So, yeah, includes me!

Also, you've already knitted me mittens (and I still owe a post on that), however, I voted for penis cozy because that sounds about ten shades of awesome. Must be synesthesia.

The first thing that struck me was bikini! I could envision this sweet little set (I don't usually go for sweet) with bottoms that you ties up with a bow in the side.

But then my pragmatic side won, so I voted for mittens. I have one and a half one laying around here somewhere, intended to be shrunken in the washing machine when they are done to become really thick and warm. I need mittens for going to Nepal, but *sigh* I want a bikini. Should I change my vote?

Em said...

I am quite enjoying Julie's blog actually -

I tried to knit once. It didn't work out that well. I can crosstitch though!

LAS said...

I am laughing my butt off right now! I want socks! But you knew that. I'll definitely go check out their blogs and I can't wait for your tribute post!

Julie said...

Bikini please. IM me for measurements.

Thank you.

:)

Finn said...

Include me, please?

Avitable said...

Ooh, a tribute post!

Jennifer said...

that pic is so awesome. at first i had no clue what it was a pic of... then as i kept reading it came right to me. i love that. :) your brother did an awesome job.

Marlee said...

I'm starting to wonder why *I* blog, so it's interesting to know why others do it...

:)

Dan said...

I've always thought I deserve more tributes.

I voted socks, but i really wanted a Tom Baker Dr Who scarf option.

utenzi said...

Okay, okay. Label me a "punk-ass" if you must, dammit. You're the only blog for me, Nina.

Sizzle said...

I really want a knitted penis cozy but I don't have a penis. Does that disqualify me? Can you knit me pasties!? That'd be AWESOME. Please add tassles. :)

Dagny said...

Penis cozy.

hehee.

LizB said...

You're adorable. I want a penis cozy so I can put it on Mike and giggle. It should be gray look like an elephant's trunk. Hahaha.

cajunvegan said...

I need some socks because you totally rock mine off each and every day.

Smooches.

I also want some link love and promotion.

Pretty please with cookies on top.

Sandy said...

I will read your blogs. And I will answer your poll. And I will look at your brother's drawings.
I just will. Because you said so.

jen said...

A tribute? Like a musical tribute? Or maybe a tribute composed primarily of cheesecake treats??

I just got my first hateful comment on my blog. Is this some right of passage? Because I feel like I need cheesecake and cookies.

Or maybe a pair of mittens.

Slick said...

A Penis cozy!!!

Wait, doubt you got enough yarn.

Annie said...

Oh, please include me, I need more blog friends :-). I read nearly everyday and love your blog. I chose
mittens, but socks are good :-).

Kate P said...

Hot pants, 'cuz spring is right around the corner.

Jenn said...

I voted for hot pants. I don't really have need for a penis cozy (lacking a penis, you understand) and a knitted bikini might create a wardrobe malfunction.

Willowtree said...

Well obviously I'm going for the cock sock.

As for the drawing, it looks like an ultrasound done with a sparkler.

PS. I hate the anti spam crap too! It so unnecessary. And as if to mock me, this one is pkhodunk in a font that is indecipherable. And yes, of course it reject my first attempt!! okay, let's try tafnxk
