21  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Random phrases that amuse me, part 3 - the final chapter (beware, c-bomb) on: January 04, 2009 07:23:38 AM
I'm just realizing, each of my "random phrases" came from podcasts. I guess I'm a podcast nerd.

I just started listening to the podcast Stars and Tartan. http://starsandtartan.blogspot.com/  In one of the episodes, Derek and Nessa talked about an incident involving a mean neighbor and the lint trap in a shared dryer.  The neighbor was then called the name I just had to cross stitch. I think this may be the first time I've stitched the c-bomb - may not be the last, though.

22  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Random phrases that amuse me part 2 - And then he says.... on: January 01, 2009 05:56:08 AM
The second in a series of stitches that I'm doing because I have time on my hands and the ability to stitch up whatever comes into my head.

You know how sometimes you get a song stuck in your head and you feel like it won't go away until you listen to it? That's my explanation for this. It is perhaps one of the most hilarious things anyone has ever said to me, and it lived in my head until I finally poured it out onto fabric. My friend Shane - who was also the inspiration for a cross stitch that said Eat Farts - said this during our podcast Emergency Pants http://emergency-pants.net/ While the story that followed was pretty funny, this question was the best part as far as I'm concerned. Semi-maturish, I guess.

23  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Random phrases that amuse me, part 1 - Dog Poop Person on: December 30, 2008 08:37:39 AM
Hubby and I were on a road trip recently and listened to several episodes of YLNT.  Three of the episodes guest starred Jonathan Coulton and John Hodgman. http://youlooknicetoday.com/story/vsop-roundup Hodgman is pimping his new book More Information Than You Require, so each episode ended with this plug for it read by Scott Simpson:

Go buy a copy. Ostentatiously read it in front of your friends and co-workers. "What's that?" they'll ask. "Nothing. Nothing _you'd_ be interested in." Then show them the dog poop you have in your other hand. "This is probably something _you'd_ be interested in. You look more like a dog poop person to me."

While the episodes themselves were incredibly entertaining, this made me crack up every time - even when I knew it was coming.  So I made this:

24  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / First of May - Jonathan Coulton Sampler on: December 14, 2008 05:52:03 PM
I modified a sampler with lyrics from First of May by Jonathan Coulton. Because I'm sick and tired of winter, and I wish that it was Spring.

Here's a closer look:

If you haven't heard the song, check it out here:


Beware of naughty words/themes in a lovely ballad-ish package.  Grin

25  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Obama cross stitch - pattern from www.subversivecrossstitch.com on: November 29, 2008 01:05:07 PM

I made this for my Mom's Christmas present.  She didn't have an easy time of it this year.  She was given a hard time by friends with different ideals when she worked for the campaign and she had a few Obama signs stolen from her yard before the election.  The last sign was stolen even though she had covered it with honey and Udder Butter in an attempt to deter the theif.  Seriously.  Grin

Thanks to Julie Jackson for making this pattern and making it available at www.subversivecrossstitch.com.
26  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Wow, this is awkward. on: November 22, 2008 10:15:15 AM

There's coffee in the kitchen if you want some... I've got kind of a busy day ahead of me, so, um.... Yeah.

27  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / I'll be in my bunk. on: November 13, 2008 08:11:21 PM
Inspired by the quote from the TV show Firefly. Because we all need some time to ourselves.  Wink

28  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Secure Area cross stitch on: November 09, 2008 07:20:30 AM
In the Wasp Woman DVD from Cinematic Titanic ( www.cinematictitanic.com ) Josh Weinstein, while being manhandled by guards, says: "Ok, ok... the sign said "secure area" - I thought it meant secure to do my _thing._"  It made me think about how I have to pass through at least 3 badge secured doors to get to my desk each morning, and how once I arrive I have to fold my freak flag and tuck it under boxes of binder clips and staples until the day is over.  I'm not sure if this is any good, but it amuses me.  Cheesy

29  NEEDLEWORK / Needlework: Completed Projects / Let's play... cross stitch - kinda maturish? maybe? on: October 19, 2008 06:14:03 PM
The other day I was reminded of a manager at the fast food place where I worked through high school and college - mainly that he constantly accused people of playing grab-ass. If any two employees were in the back room for longer than 30 seconds, regardless of gender, age or orientation, they were greeted with "What the hell were you doing back there? Playin' grab-ass?" when they returned. Once it was the 60-something woman who worked the register and a red-faced 15 year old. Well, enough shame. Let's take back grab-ass.

Hope you like it. Smiley

One of my favorite things right now is the podcast You Look Nice Today. http://youlooknicetoday.com/ On one of the recent episodes ( http://youlooknicetoday.com/episode/man-school ), this phrase was used, and I thought it would make a great project.

Hope you like it. Smiley
