Good Old Walt

Does anyone know of something that blocks spam comments on Moveable Type? I've been getting spammed hourly since I switched back from haloscan commenting. It is more maddening than standing in a line that never moves forward.

We went to the Happiest Place on Earth today to see the grand re-opening of Playhouse Mouse-y. I should amend that statement. We and 10,000 other crazed parents and crying kids went on the off chance that they'd be the first 510 people in line to see the show. Aside: I'm not sure how a wee 15 month old can collapse into a heap more dense than a black hole, making it impossible to pick her up because her octi-limbs also become as slippery as a cuttlefish but she transforms at always just the right moment. And by right moment I mean precisely when I want her to devolve the least. After baking in the sun for 40 minutes and finding that the first show was canceled due to technical difficulties we bagged it and slunk over to Monsters Inc. Maya laughed at the Monsters, which restored my faith in the Walt (and I don't mean Whitman) Industrial Complex.
I've had a few other faith shaking experiences recently, involving crochet (I know!). Specifically I saw some lovely things popping up on various knitting blogs.

In my defense it all started when my Husband suggested I crochet some replacement pot holders since we've worn the ones Great Aunt Ruby gave us to the bare threads. (Eccentric Aunt Ruby is in her 90's, still plays the violin enthusiastically, and crochets the most lovely and efficient pot holders you ever saw). My new intrest was compounded by my indoctrination introduction to Whole Foods. I simply must have hand made produce bags, how else will I fit in with all the other psuedo hippies? PS If you're driving a Hummer in the Whole Foods Parking Lot and taking out shopping carts and the surrounding 5 parking spaces, I'm pretty sure that makes you a giant UN-PC NON HIPPIE. Even if you buy locally grown organic you're still a cephalopod of the highest order.

Annie of the beautifully talented variety sent me the most magnificent package. Really, a photograph doesn't do justice to this mosaic.

The pieces have a real depth to them and gleam just they way they should. Maya will appreciate this addition to her jungle animal collection.
The music she sent soothes me in the car when I want to run over the Hummer drivers who take their kids to the happiest place on earth the same day I do.

    Doesn’t sound like you had a terrific Disney Day. I can’t get wrapped up in the concept of Theme Parks – but I am the odd one in my family.
    Keep up the crochet. It is way faster than knitting, especially pot holders.

    I’m so glad you like everything!
    It’s funny, my dad asked me about produce bags for the supermarket recently- in Europe now, if you want bags, you have to pay for them, so people are really making use of re-usable bags! I need to learn to crochet, but because I’m a thrower, I find it really awkward!
