I am so behind...

On everything including movie reviews. I've watched so many and started writing the "reviews" for them but I don't want to bombard my knitting blog with tons of movie reviews. I guess I will take a page out of Anna's book and start posting a few a day. My problem is that I watch movies like it is regular tv. There are only a few shows that I Tivo regularly and when I watch those I don't flip through and browse the cable box or anything. I only watch what I've recorded plus music videos. So in a sense Tivo has cut down my useless TV watching and help me get right to the meat and potatoes. Lets pretend like this means less time wasted. Anyway, it's easy to run out of things to watch sometimes so I have my movies.
BTW, I'm loving Netflix 12 x's better than blockbuster. They are quick, the site is easier to navigate, you can set up a seperate Q for other members of your household, you can really "talk" to other people about movies, their buddy system is easier, it seems like everyone writes reviews (which I love) and the suggestions they make for you are forever changing and look interesting. Oh, and I like the way you can view what's in ur buddy's Q and what they've rated already...whatev.
Moving on, I haven't been knitting on my shrug like I should or my blanket. I have been investing my time in a new blanket (crochet) because I've missed my hubby so much. It's a picnic blanket. The yarn is some ridiculous Red Heart acrylic that I've had in my stash for about 10 years (I'm not kidding) Anyway, I'll be finishing up the picnic blanket, shrug, and beebee blanket by the end of the month. Is this too ambitous? I think not considering everything is over half complete already.

I've also been working very sporadically on the two toned shrug from Fitted Knits. I probably could have been done in a matter of days but of course I've been dragging my feet. Right now all I have left to do is to complete the border so obviously this is an old progress pic. Maybe posting it up here will motivate me to finish.
