Winner of the Knitbot/Hannah Fettig Pattern Giveaway!!! (and some thoughts)
we've got a winner of the knitbot/hannah fettig pattern giveaway but first i have to say that i had other things planned to post about as well today but if any of you have been watching the news or are hockey fans you would know what i was up late glued to the tv watching. i'm embarrassed, ashamed and mortified by the behaviour of some idiotic people destroying and rioting vancouver last night after the vancouver canucks lost the stanley cup. it was bad enough we lost (insert my tears...i'm devastated) but to top it off by humiliating vancouver, the province and the country? what the heck people? you could tell the main group of people doing most of the damage had planned this, i mean who goes to the hockey game equipped with bombs??? it was sad to sit and watch one of the most beautiful cities that is very dear to my heart get trashed by some drunk animals.
the scariest part was people just seemed to get more and more excited as it went on! they had no fear, honestly. cars were exploding, fires set, serious looting and the tear gas...oh the tear gas. all of this was going on right near where we used to live and i could only imagine the smell especially with a baby! so instead of wishing i was in vancouver watching the canucks i was finally happy i was in quiet victoria watching the tv safe at home.
so sorry folks, no special posts today. but you won't mind....cause i've got the winner of the knitbot giveaway to announce. want to know who won???
