Another Missed Pun Opportunity

Really, people, I seem to be slipping. First, I missed the chance to entitle my last blog post "Socks and Violins," for which I am still mourning.

And then, last night, I threw a little party. On the eve of the Super Bowl, I threw a Soup Night, and I never even made the connection until people were standing in my kitchen, eating soup and talking about the game and I thought, "Souper Bowl! ARGHHHH!"  And my brain froze and I contemplated doing something wild and radical, like never buying yarn again, until I get my Pun Mojo back.

I did realize that only *I* can throw a dinner party and make people READ their way through it. (As always, you can click to embiggen.) (In case you're low on reading material.)






Actually, it was SHRIMP Etouffee because I couldn't find crawfish here.  I had to go back and edit the sign later.  (Of COURSE, I did.)

Ana said, "Why are you making so MANY cookies?"  And I said, "Because my philosophy about parties is that you can never have too much.  Well, actually, it's less of a PHILOSOPHY and more of a PSYCHOSIS."
 A SOUPER time was had by all.  (Yeah, I know: too little, too late.)

Souper Bowl *snickering*. I missed it until you pointed it out. My pun mojo is sadly lacking today.

I totally want to knit these socks someday: http://www.renaissancedyeing.com/store_knitting-kits/

I like the Roman De La Rose version, although the Paatsama socks are a near second.

Except I, too, know that Second Sock syndrome waits on the threshold of Project hell. It was bad enough finishing a second fingerless glove. So perhaps they will linger on the list of things worth aspiring to.

But aren't they pretty?

I did soup for a Super Bowl party and caught nothing but flak for it! Totally agree with your never can have too much food for a party philosophy.

are those cookies vegan vegetarian or just vegetarian? but aren't all cookies vegetraian? even mincemeat pie is usually vegetarian these decades.

'cuz, you know, I just can't tell from the sign.

Er.

Enough butter and eggs in those cookies to make them potentially LETHAL. I did have a big bowl of nice Vegan fruit next to them, in hopes that its karma would negate some of the buttery death next to it...

I really made the sign to point out the TYPES of cookies and also, to let my Vegan friends know that there was nothing for them on that plate. I think all cookies ARE, at least, vegetarian. (Picturing a cookie made of meat or chicken and...well, you know, that's kind of a disgusting visual.)
