Your Man __?
Kym was cracking me up in the comments of my man scarf post, talking about how "Man ___" is always funny. And she's totally right! Man purse is funny no matter what "cool" bag the man is carrying. (Anyone else obsessed with The Hangover?? It's a satchel! Indiana Jones wears one...)
Another favorite of mine was always "man cave." It means a room in the house where men are allowed to do and decorate how they please. Think leather chairs and pool tables, I suppose?
I never understood these men who, in their own houses, had to fight for a basement or upstairs room or-- really?-- the garage, just so they could have their own space. I was always all, "why don't they just share and compromise??"
Now that I've lived with my boyfriend for a little over a year, I can honestly say that while I'm still happily in love with him and look forward to seeing him everyday...
His Scarface poster is the FIRST thing that would go in his man cave.
Haha I remember trying so hard to get him to get rid of that when we moved in together...
Then my step-dad saw it when he was helping us unpack and was all, "That's awesome!!"
So now it's in our office. Black matting, gold frame and all.
The things we do for love...
Anyway, speaking of lovely things, I think I've chosen a scarf for the "man scarf" project!
Finding the Man Scarf
Fidgeting Gidget shared the Basketweave Scarf pattern from Knitting Daily, which I looooove. I'm so making this for myself lol.
Isn't it cute?? I'm going to go ahead and get this on the needles next because I think it's so cute. I'm afraid Matt won't like the sides... it could be seen as a little "ruffled." Guys are so hard! I can totally understand Steph Chows forgetting the scarf and crocheting her hubs an afghan!!
But like I said... I like the scarf. lol. So FG, I'll make that one for me. You can never have enough cute scarves, I think!
SO. For Mr. Matt, I felt better when Concord Carpenter promised that 1. Using one color is best (that's what I was thinking!) and 2. Wide is ok.
Love it! Manly looking stitches (can stitches be manly? Guess so!), nice gray-black simple man color...
I've got my scarf :)
So now, on the needles:
- Extra Warm Men's Scarf by Cotton and Cloud. (Thanks for the suggestion, Stephanie!)
- The Hoodie Baby Blanket by Nikol Lohr
Thanks for your help, everyone!
First Week of Class
Now, this is my 2nd day of class during my first week of the semester...
It's my third semester and after this I'll only have two more to go... (May '11, baby!)
And after all that, this is my first online class!
I've got two traditional lecture courses (ENG 518 Publication Management, ENG 519 Online Information Design and Evaluation) but my one online class is EAC 581: Advanced Instructional Design in Training and Development.
It's funny... because it's Advanced Instructional Design, and I've never even taken an Instructional Design course... or a EAC course (EAC is Adult & Higher Education Dept.) at all, for that matter! AND it's my first online course.
...that's a lot of first.
Hopefully I'll survive.
I was a TOTAL DORK and when I signed on to the course, realized everyone was posting introductions in the "forum" so I went around and commented on EVERYONE'S introduction...
...well, there's only 15 people in the class, but anyway...
commented on EVERYONE'S introduction, only to realize afterward that the only other person to comment ON EVERYONE'S INTRODUCTION....
...was the professor.
At least I proved you can still be a dork, even in online classes...
Maybe everyone will just think I'm really nice! lol.
