Last week, Frank came to my knitting group for the first time. He was astonished to learn that nearly everyone there had a blog. I have made you a simple venn diagram to illustrate this phenomenon.
To wit: Almost all knitters are bloggers, except for maybe your cousin and six elderly women in the Aleutian islands. A large number of knitters own cats. A large number of bloggers own cats. Please note that even in this venn diagram, I was unable to prevent the cats from shedding on everything. (Maybe my proportions are a little off, and there are actually more knitters than bloggers, but I only have so much time to waste with the MS Paint, y’know?)
Anyhow, after finding this out, Frank decided to get a blog. On my recommendation, he chose WordPress. In his very first post, he wrote about learning to decorate cakes, which he had mentioned at the knitting group as well. He had also mentioned that he didn’t know anything about blog software, so in the comments on his first post, I told him “I know all about the wordpress ways. I will be your guru in exchange for cake.”
Mind you, I was just kidding. I will guru for free anytime. But Frank, we have discovered, is a literalist of the highest degree.
He brought a yarn cake to the knitting group last night!
I have added a new category to this blog: Cake. Because Cake deserves its own category, as well as a capital C. It might even deserve an exclamation point, but let’s not be hasty.
