First, A Poem

Happy Birdday to Me*
I fell out my tree.
Thought I’d go shopping…
What a silly monkey!!!

I went to this store
They had bargains galore
I filled up my basket
But I still wanted more.

Soy silk and silk wool **
I started to drool
Bamboo and some cotton
I looked like a fool.

50% of in back
I had an attack
At $1.79 per ball,
I put 6 in my sack.

I sound like a boor
But I still wanted more
Then came the epiphany
I am a yarn whore.

The lesson, my friend
Now that this poem’s at its end,
Even tho its Super Bowl Sunday
It isn’t a requirement to go off the deep end.

*it wasn't really my birthday DAY, but since the day is on a school day, that was the closest I'm gonna be to celebrating.
** just as a note, these are all vibrant, beautiful colors, it's just that camera phone was doing it's artistic thing again.

Happy Birthday, Sweetie! Remember, she who dies with the most yarn, wins! You're on way to becoming a real winner!!!

Oh, I almost went to Unwind yesterday. You should have called me. I hope the back room isn't cleaned out yet.

Woohoo! No gift better than a self-purchased gift... No need to exchange it.

Happy Birthday! Your yarn looks scrumptious and thank goodness you posted it so I can "shop" vicariously through you. Do you know the willpower it took for me to resist Unwind on Sunday????

Happy Birthday!

I see nothing wrong with being a yarn whore. The question is, have you measured your stash in miles yet?
