    Amy Beth, may I just say that I love you? (in a totally non-stalkerish and wholesome way, of course!) Thanks for the laughs and I love your Goodale!

    Loved your podcast, as always. You know the part where you told about recording without the video on…well at least you didn’t damage your garage door by backing into it like I did on Sunday. Oh well. I know…I should have been knitting and that wouldn’t have happened, right?

    OMG! Amy Beth, you are a hoot! I’m so glad that i’m not the only one who hates the mirrors at the beauty shop. I must say that it takes me months to go back and get my hair cut, it’s right up there with having a root canal.

    You have the best podcast. keep it up!

    Denise, I can’t tell you how many times I have almost done the same thing!

    See, I’m telling you, how do salons NOT know that those mirrors are hated by all. I’m going to just assume that the weight loss companies donate them to salons and then give them a kick back from all the people they send to weight watchers. But then, I love a good conspiracy theory.

    loved the show. I love a good burlesque show. I have friends who go to classes and put on shows, you should totally go to a class. i laughed at a few more places on this episode but i loved the ending. don’t feel too awkward, pretty, classy ladies dancing around in nothing much is fun to watch. good for the soul i say 😉

    Love you! (also in a non-stalkerish entirely wholesome way!) Now I want to see a burlesque show!
    Your tips on fit, gauge, etc. are very helpful to this “fluffy” beginning-sweater knitter. Thank you so much.

    Amy Beth! I am watching from the last episode backwards, and yay for another henna user! My hair is dark brown, but it makes it a sassy red for me. Henna users unite!

    P.S. Love your face. You make me smile when I am full of grumpasaurus.

    Liz I’m so glad to hear you’re enjoying the show! And yes, I must confess it’s all I can do not to ask random people on the street if they use henna….Something about mudding up my head and smelling funky for several hours every couple of months really seems to make me feel bonded to folks.
