Well, at least, CPSC has removed it's head from it's ass somewhat. Books published after 1985 are now okay: "On Friday, the Consumer Product Safety Commission exempted children's books printed after 1985 from the new law's enforcement provisions, which allow fines of as much as $100,000 per violation for selling or distributing products that contain more than 600 parts per million of lead intended for use by children 12 and younger. "

I mean, OMG, how did the human survive until now?! I should've been dead, dead, dead, shortly after birth. I guess I shouldn't even let any kid I know read my old childhood books, huh? Those Nancy Drews published before 1985 will kill 'em dead! 

The CPSC also decided that yarn is okay and lead-free! Whoo! Etsy has an updated article about the new requirements and the extension of the CPSIA act.

........Okay, yeah, the CPSA did need updating but the way it's been carried out has been un-necessarily aggravating and upsetting.

C'mon, doctor appointment. Get here. Boy, I hope I feel better soon. I'm tired of being sick. It's making me bitchy. ^^;;

Since I graduated in Dec 08, I've been taking up my sorely neglected hobbies again like crocheting. So far, I've completed 2 scarfs and a hat. I've almost completed Happy Hooker's fat bottomed purse (need to line it and then add the handles) and buy jute to finish a planter. I've been learning Tunisian crochet and I'm thinking of learning knitting. I've so suppressed my artistic impulses the last few years that it now feels like I'm doing something wrong by doing these things when it's really not wrong. I think I'm tired of being logical atm. I just wanna have fun! anyone else remember Cyndi Lauper and the 80s? I've signed up for social sites such as Ravelry and Crochet Me (although I've not done anything yet on them (have barely set up a minimum profile).

This vid is hilarious--the guy sings the song better than Britney. I can't stand Britney Spears or her music but I do like covers of it--those covering her songs usually do it much, much better than she does:
