The Adventures Of The Hooded Red Scarf...

This is by far my favorite scarf.... If you are interested in the pattern its here It was PERFECT for D.C. .. Since you know... it rains ICE... WTF... It was like needles on my face! Also I did my hair despite the horrible weather... My curls were just as fabu as when I first left.

This scarf I talked about making myself back in Septembers Archives... So.... I didn't make it. I started to and then realized I didn't want to learn how to use a cable needle... I also knew my grandma would make it much better AND much faster... So we shared the job... She knitted it up in one night and I did the seams. For some reason she UBER sucks at seams now... Who knows why... but I am proud to say I am much better... Just call me " The Seam Machine" (That was so lame... I wonder how I have any readers)

The scarf was so cozy and warm. Like I said before... DC is cold... VERY COLD... mix frozen rain... and possible screwed up hair = One miserable Brook... So the scarf was my savior. I took a bunch of pics in it... Since you know... Juan can't get a monument in the shot... ("Yes Juan I am standing in the muddy grass so you can get a close up of my face... NO no... No reason I am standing in front of the capitol...") He wonders why I always look at the photos right after... Moving on... Lets look how cute the scarf is... Shall we??? It may be a little over the top for some of you... But hell I LOVE IT!!! Little Red Riding hood... WATCH OUT!

Yes I love to be Asian with the peace sign... Except I am smiling which they don't do... Oh how I love Asians... I wish I was one...

Disregard Juans shit patch... Oh I mean soul patch... It is the devil and I hate it... I will shave it in his sleep... The last time He grew any form of facial hair I would pull it... He eventually got the picture.... I guess he forgot :)

Where I was standing in these pictures will be FULL of people... Thousands and Thousands of people for Obama to get sworn in... I am glad I wont be there. I hate large crowds of people... It just ain't my thang... Well except for Disneyland.... They had already started to put up the bleachers! SO yeah... Should be interesting... Its going to be CCCCOOOOLLLLDDD!!!!

P.S. is it just me or is everyone getting preggos?

Tonight I was looking at pictures of myself in Wash DC but they were from 1979 and I look like crap (as usual) and did not have a cool red scarf to wear. I love the scarf!! And, I'm glad you had such a good time. And, please can we get the metro in Laguna? I would totally use it.
