I may have mentioned something about the Nerd wars group on Ravelry at one point or another, it’s a fun crafting tournament of geekiness and I’ve participated in tournament 3 and tournament 4 on Team Pineapple (which is based on my favorite tv show Psych) I really love the fun we Pineapples have and I want to take a quick moment to thank a few people:
Our team captain: laweinberger
Our team manager: Loveofnature
Our team blogger: lebeau
knittinfiasco (who introduced me to the team)
and all the rest of my fellow Pineapples!!
I’m hoping to be on Team Pineapple for T5 as well (since it’s where all fans of delicious flavor tend to end up ;))
I had a lovely surprise at the end of round 4, I won the beautiful yarn you see to the right in a drawing!!! So thank you Oddstitch, laweinberger, and Loveofnature!!!! I don’t yet know what I’ll make with it but I’m sure I’ll think of something!
Congratulations to the Nerd wars T4 champion; Team Rangers!! And to the runner-up; Team Squints!!
And if anyone’s interested in joining in all the Nerd wars fun, sign-ups are May 15 – 26, 2012.
Ahh, finally an episode that I completely loved! I’ve had some issues with the newest episodes (namely with Gus’ attitude about the ring, Shawn’s weird jokes that aren’t really funny, and the fact that Henry hasn’t been in it enough) but last week’s episode gave me some hope and this weeks didn’t fail to raise the bar for these episodes (so now I have much higher hopes for the rest of the season, hopefully it continues to improve!) The reappearance of Jaleel White as Gus’ old friend Tony was fun to watch, he’s incredibly funny and plays off of Gus almost as well as Shawn. The other guest stars were just as good but I did get a little annoyed with Lassie’s girlfriend Marlowe (she was just a little too syrupy sweet this time)
But the best part of this episode had to be Gus, for a change he got to run the investigation a little bit (and annoy Lassie) and it was his thinking that saved the day (or anyway, allowed Lassie and Juliet to burst into the room at the right time to arrest the bad guy after Shawn had already taken him down)
I just have to say something about the singing in this episode, I love how good these guys sound together! Shawn tends to overdo it a little but if you close your eyes and don’t actually watch him then it sounds really good and Gus is just terrific!
I do wonder how many times they plan on incorporating (sometimes badly) the prison where Marlowe is, they could just release her on early parole if they really want her to be in it so much, although I’m not sure if I would like that or not, Lassie is a little goofy around her but on the other hand it’s really nice to see him happy (because he seriously doesn’t smile enough)
There’s a lot more I could say about this episode but I think I would rather go watch the rerun 😉
This pic is from season 5 of Psych and is for Neil (this episode is my second favorite of all time, what’s not to like about a polar bear being falsely accused of murder? Especially when he is so cute!!)
“My finger to eyebrow device is broken. This has never happened to me before.”
Best quote of the season so far although the last episode had several good ones too, but seriously, you don’t get better than “Last night Gus” it easily makes my top three favorite episodes which may be why “This episode sucks” fell a little flat for me the opening was great but about half way through I got just a tad bit weary of the plot although Juliet’s reactions were absolutely HILARIOUS!! (and the cat!!!! I loved the cat) and Lassie in love was cute (shame she’s in jail now although I didn’t really like her)
The following is Totally Random info (?) that popped in my head today.
Did you know sealed mason jars will float in water? So if you are shipwrecked and happen to finish off that jar of grape jelly you tucked in your suitcase, you could totally put a message in it and float it out to sea (that way whoever finds it doesn’t have to break it, they can just slide the message right out unlike most bottles which are just to small to be an effective message carrier)
So there is your nonsensical piece of advice for the day! Always travel with grape jelly 🙂
