commitments, with issues

Oh, the pressure. November. A month when the darkness comes too early each day. A month to cast your ballots* in the US. A month to commit.
NaKniSweMo 2009 ? Vestvember ? NaBloPoMo ? Yeah, sure, why not.
If you ask me, all uncooked tomatoes have issues. The gooky stuff with seeds.
Well, umm, in the past I've had a mixed record with these sorts of efforts. Daily blogging? Sorta kinda made it through the month. Scrolling back from that link, I see I fell apart around the 21st. A sweater in a month ? OK, that I've done a few times but the year long effort ? Pfffffft. Gone with the summer breezes, I'm just putting the final touches on # 7.
A vest in November? When I joined Vestuary, I finished it
in April.
So I'm not making any promises. We'll see how it turns out. Sometimes different is good.
* don't forget to go vote tomorrow (Tuesday) if you're in the US. I'm working it again, I got a promotion to tabulator tender. woohoo! Take pity on your poor Election Officials. We're there from 5 am on to welcome you. Not expecting it to be as exciting as last year, I may get some serious knitting in on that November sweater.

Well, you have one *slight* advantage in NaBloPoMo... You can just flash one of your gorgeous photos! You even make ugly tomatoes look glamorous...

You don't have time for those things because you are too busy making money online! I love the tomatoes with issues. But me, I love all tomatoes, troubled pasts, uncertain futures. Yum. I didn't election judge today as they only needed a skeleton crew.

I really try hard to not commit to things like NaBloPoMo. Why add artificial stressors to a packed life? But it is so hard not to join in the fun, sometimes, and be one of the gang.

Did you notice that the skein photo posted below your tomato photo resemble one another? Only you could find a tomato in the shape of a skein!
