« on: June 23, 2004 10:38:17 PM »

in an effort to wisely use my money while i'm unemployed, and also in an attempt to conserve precious natural resources, i've begun hand-knitting my own tampons.

hee hee. just kidding.  i knit up a sample swatch in stockinette for a baby blankie i'm making, and when it curled up on itself i just couldn't stop laughing.    thought you crafty ladies might enjoy a womanly giggle. xo - g

LMFAO At first I was like:

you've gotta be shitting me  Roll Eyes

then I read on and saw you were kidding. Seriously, I've seen some unusual stuff (for lack of better words) on the boards so when I read the word "tampon" and looked at the pic I really bought it

(hope I don't wake up my boyfriend from laughing at this)

bahahahahaaaaa T.F.F.

With all the directions on sewing your own reusable pads and whatnot I've seen, I was wondering when someone would make (or parody)  something like this ^^

At first I thought it was a vibrator cozy (yes, someone has made a real post for that somewhere here). And then I read the tampon thing, and it reminded me of the reusable sanitary napkin post that someone also really did make. So I wouldn't have been surprised if you actually were serious.






I wonder if it would work though...

 Tongue The funny thing is i read the first part and was like "hmm..how does it work...maybe tampons are actually a simple design..." I'm SO gullible.

From the book Godless:

Just Al: I know that God is real. I feel his presence in my heart
Me: What does it feel like?
Just Al: It's hard to describe Jason. It feels good.
Me: Oh. I thought maybe it was like heartburn or something.
