Another three days has gone by. Our Souls, the anniversary sampler I started for the dude two years ago, had its turn. The first time I showed it--three months after our anniversary--it looked like this. I had stitched a bit more on it before I started this round, but not enough for a picture.
While I stitch, I've been listening to As You Wish: Inconceivable Tales from the Making of The Princess Bride. I don't love audiobooks that much (I can't pay attention) but this one is fun. One of my friends recommended specifically that it be listened to since 1) Cary Elwes reads it 2) he does imitations--and well, and 3) a bunch of other people involved in making the movie read their own sidebars. (In the book, they're in shaded boxes, but in the audiobook they're in different voices!) It has been entertaining.
I can't imagine how the three of us must look piled onto the couch, the dude reading, the dog curled up between us, and me with the laptop on my lap, in headphones, stitching and laughing.
For what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbours, and laugh at them in our turn?
