Where in the World is Rudee?

I used to love spending time playing Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego on the computer with my kids. Sometimes I'd play it by myself. I know there was a television show by the same name, but I don't recall that. I must have moved on to more important computer games like Bejeweled and TextTwist by then. Or Hearts. Or Video Poker. I also loved Mario Bros. and Donkey Kong. Who knows how much time I've spent lost in Cyberland? I haven't a clue.

This week, I'll be lost in a different way. The MacBook parts that were ordered last week are in so it's going into the shop to be repaired. Keep voting on your selection for my election day attire and I'll cast on Friday night. I'll be spending some productive time finishing up that green sweater I started. I'm near the hem now which is more complicated than it looks in the photo.

Odessa is ahead in the polls and I'll be stopping by the bead shop today in anticipation of a landslide victory for the beaded hat. Wilde Thyme thought the multicolored yarn may be too much for Odessa but I don't know. When I look at the yarn up close, the changes in color are much more subtle than in that picture I posted. It's very pale and more green with some pale blues. I'm thinking pearl type beads. Cashmere and pearls. Does it get more Audrey Hepburn than that?

I'll try to keep up with your blogs using our desktop dinosaur. I can't make any promises though. I think I'd rather have a root canal than use that ancient beast. Have a good week everyone.

Good luck with the computer repair! I HATE broken computers.. NOW I don't know what I'd do.. No way to replace it. Love the Carmen costume.. You going to go voting in that?

I hate it when the computer lets us down, very frustrating. Looking forward to seeing the completed green sweater

Hope it gets fixed soon. Love the oostume. One thing I never got stuck doing was playing games on the computer. I was never much of a game person with my kids. But I was always at home working on transcription. I actually played cards with my grandson the other day.

Cashmere and pearls. Yes very classy!

I think I voted for the Odessa already. But you may be right about the color not being quite right. I liked all of them. You have me hooked Rudee, on knitting. Now when we go to the book stores or library, guess where I head. Knitting mags and books. Got a great one at the library. I may have to buy that one! It has beautiful baby things!

I hope your computer problems get solved soon. I miss your posts!

I use to play Carmen Sandiego with my girls too. What fun.
