A Gentleman and a Philosopher

There's only one man who works in our small office. Yesterday, he brought all of us a dozen roses.

Upon coming back from lunch today, he saw the roses. "Do you know," he called out to his assistant, "a rose by any other name would not smell as sweet? For instance, if I said, 'Hey, come smell this sack of f***in' horse-s***,' do you think you'd like it?"

Happy Valentine's Day.

p.s. I made Gena's day! It's that award that's going around (and around, and around...) Dandy. Especially because I recall we "met" when I accosted her with questions about her Cardigan for Arwen (Ravelry link). What a nice person.

I'm sure I'm supposed to do something elaborate, like send a knitted tea cozy to 16 people in the first 3 minues after receiving this honor. Whatev. Those who are looking for new crafty blogs, check out
Girl Who Knits, six one seven, Tres Chic Veronique, Knitting Sunshine, Cozy's Place, Moon Tea, Sally Comes Unraveled (and the other blogs by my Meetup knitting group. Sorry I'm behind on the list, ladies.). Don't have time to transcribe the rest of my bloglines list right now, so if you ever get a comment from me, then poof! You've made my day, too.

Awww, thank you! And yeah, I don't think roses would go over so well that way, lol.

Shy, quiet people scare me. I'm much more comfortable with people unafraid of accosting others.

Thanks for the shout out! And funny story about the roses. Happy Valentines indeed.
