kitty: WC update, I did my part now can US win?

WOHO, I made it. US plays in an 1.4 hours today. My sweater is done, except for real blocking, but M has taken over my table to cleaning all his collectibles so they are drying on it. So though it needs to be correctly blocked, I did do a little steaming in the bathroom to fulfill the last step in FO status. I also want to wear it during the game today.

I need to run to go get stuff to make lunch Chicken Alfredo on open Ravioli. Yeah, I am convinced Italy is going to win, so why bother with a US food entry in our World Cup Food competition.

M and I have also been doing a World Cup Food adventure:

  1. well, US did win, but neither did Italy! Team fought bravely!

  2. M needs to get his priorities striaght. Blocking your sweater comes before cleaning his toys. Youned to send me a better idea of what an pen ravioli is though. I have always associated Alfredo with wide ribbon noodles.
