Are YOU On the List?

So I love the show Heroes, even though it stresses me out to no end. I hated it at first because I did not have a clue what was going on and I hate watching things that I do not get-it makes me feel all confused and angry (and then I have to remind myself that this is television and therefore NOT REAL, but still...). But now, NOW, I am so into this story and I spent all day waiting to see what was going to happen in the next chapter-oh I so need a life! If you are not familiar with the show, there are a number of individuals on a List who all have special powers (ability to be invisible, ability to hear thoughts, ability to heal oneself, ability to have nuclear power, ability to fly, ability to teleport oneself, etc)-they are the Heroes-and there is some underground, unknown organization finding and tracking the Heroes and trying to study them for....something. Ugh! What?! What is it?! Why won't they tell me?! Then there is the "other side" who I think are the "bad guys" and they are hunting down the Heroes on the List, too. Oh the stress of it! Who are the good ones and who are the bad ones? WHO'S ZOOMIN' WHO?! ?

I think I would like to be a knitting Hero. My special powers would allow me to knit at warp speed while caring for the 3 Things, thereby finishing the 2 baby gifts by tomorrow that I am trying to churn out by the end of this week (although I may actually be channeling my powers now as I finished one thing today-the Bunny Blanket Buddy, NOT in the icky green yarn pictured but in a handpainted, cotton chenille from Colinette). I think I'd also add the ability to knit lace, cables, intarsia, fair isle-you name it-without saying a single swear word, dropping a stitch or frogging. Hello?! Can you even imagine? It would be nothing short of miraculous! Plus, I would have nothing but fascinating, clever, hilarious blog entries with nary an out of focus picture to be found AND be able to write my own patterns. That about sums it up. Yeah, I think being a knitting Hero would work out nicely. In the meantime, I will be hurriedly be trying to put together Sheldon (most likely while swearing and dropping sitches) before a 1 year old's birthday party on Saturday and putting the final touches of fluffing and buffing on the Bunny for a brand new baby who is to make his appearance on Thursday of this week-I'm so excited, I love new little babies!! OK, gotta go watch the rest of Heroes and find out what the heck is going on...maybe.

Knit on, Heroes-in-training!!

p.s.-They just said that Heroes will not be back on till April 23rd-are they TRYING to kill me??

I'm like this with "Lost." Best show since Twin Peaks and Northern Exposure...just amazing. I never started "Heroes" because it conflicted with Monday Night Football...yes, I am a football geek, very seriously.

If I was a hero with SPECIAL POWERS, my power would be the "POWER OF METABOLISM!" I would be able to eat everything in sight and never gain an ounce! I'd be a size two with two fistfuls of German chocolate brownies!!! can dream.

Oh, I LOVE LOVE LOVE Heros.. I was mad it wasnt on tonight... boo..

My power would be to be in two places at once... so i could live my life with one person and knit all the time as the other person.. hehehe
