How to drive someone crazy from 1100 miles away

22 August 2006

Proof positive

I have the best boyfriend ever.

UPS just rang my doorbell, delivering a package from Yoshi had told me to expect them today, and to open whatever came. He's been anticipating a package for about two weeks now, and he said it was for me.

The box contained this.

I am overwhelmed. He must have really looked for something great for me, and man, oh man, he found it. It's the most beautiful book; clear color pictures, gorgeous colorwork. I guess he realized I need a new challenge, and I guess he decided it wasn't bookmarks. It's extreme fancy pants colorwork. When I think of the research he must have done to figure out that Alice Starmore was where I needed to go, I am amazed at his thoughtfulness. He must have also spent some time staring at my knitting library (reasonably extensive for my one-and-a-half year old knitting career) to make sure he didn't get me a double of something I already had, something that happened when he was indulging a new love he inspired in me (comic books, mostly Neil Gaiman; yes, I am the biggest dork you know).

I hope he realizes that now I need more yarn... And that now I have to knit him a Cosby sweater.

I fall in love with him a little more almost every day. And the days I don't for some stupid reason, he makes up for it the next day.

And sorry, ladies, he doesn't have a brother for you.

Way to go Yoshi.

And to think that you didnt need to rub my husband on him, after all (in a purely heterosexual way, of course).
