Impromtu Story & Twestival Pics

20 Feb

I wanted to post my knitting pictures today, but when I tried to upload them, my card reader wasn’t working.  😦

So here is a story I made up on a whim when my friend Jackie said “Work is super busy and I’m super irritated. Tell me a story.” Yes, it is autobiographical.

There once was a little girl who used to sneak downstairs and watch Letterman through the openings between the random boards that made a wall next to her stairs. Her favorite segments on Letterman were when he dropped things from the rooftop and told the temperature by whether or not an egg would cook on the sidewalk.

Many years passed, and that girl got a job in an office building that was located in an old mall. She had her own office, with a big window that looked out onto a hotel for low income housing. One cold, snowy winter day, she came into her office and was shocked at how hot it was! Could it be? Yes, the heater in her office was broken. That old building was up to it’s fowl tricks again! She tried to turn the heat down, but no luck! It just kept getting hotter.

This girl, being very patient in nature, decided to wait out the heat. The next day passed; still much too hot. And the day after that; still not fixed. Finally the third day came with this excruciating heat. And the little girl realized, with sadness in her heart, that should could probably cook an egg on her desk. Suddenly, that bit wasn’t as funny. THE END.

Jackie: u should have cooked an egg


Here are some photos from the Twestival.  You can see the rest here. I met LJC and a bunch of other people from the internet! Good time. 🙂
