In any case, I decided to post anyway, because I am close to finishing a book that I have found to be really interesting, and I saw a freebie pattern yesterday that I thought was really amusing and worth sharing.
First up, I'm nearly finished with this book:
This has been a good read, both in the premise (the narrator is the wife of Jesus), and in the depictions of life and society at the time it is supposed to be happening. Admittedly, I'm also imagining some people starting to read it and then getting to a certain point and thinking "WHAAAATTT???" and being shocked, dismayed, or whatever, and frankly that amuses me.
As for the freebie pattern, someone shared this on Twitter yesterday, and not only is it free, but it's very timely:
This is a free pattern from Mochimochi Land, and it just cracks me up. Not only because it's stupid cute, but because when else but in the current climate would it be considered appropriate to knit a friendly syringe?? Think about it - say, two years ago, people would have been saying it promoted opioid abuse or something, right?
I can hear the sanctimonious outrage in my head: "Disgusting! She's reading a book about Jesus having a wife, AND sharing a pattern to promote drug use!"
As you can see from everything here, I do a good job of finding things funny for all the wrong reasons. Good times.
We had a lovely Easter, if another quiet one since our partners in crime couldn't visit to undertake the decoration of Inappropriate Easter Eggs. Hopefully next year we can get the band back together.
The weather here in Philadelphia was beautiful, and we had a leisurely day just relaxing and hanging out with Pip, Milo, and Hamlet. The Tim fixed a really yummy Easter dinner, and we did what we could as far as consuming chocolate in honor of the day. If only life could be as pleasant all of the time, right?
