Dark Cloud vs Silver Lining: DeathMatch 2000

Posted on Oct 20, 2008. 7 comments

Some people think there's a silver lining to every dark cloud.
For example:
Dark cloud knit and cut up due to user error in 2005.
This cloud was full of cat fur, dust mites and other detritus that caused lots of allergy induced tears while being destroyed.
But doesn't it look pretty all washed and sorted?
Dark Cloud: 0
Silver Lining: 1
I did have enough yarn to finish Goody
But I'll need the extra yarn I ordered to add length since the sweater is too short.
Dark Cloud: -1
Silver Lining: 1
Someone opted to steal my debit card number and purchase $50 pizzas in Louisville, KY and withdraw money at Rite Aid in New York.
Dark Cloud: 1
Silver Lining: 0
Good thing I have my super secret yarn bank account with which to buy consolation yarn.
Dark Cloud: 0
Silver Lining: 1
What does all this mean? I'm too tired to figure it out. But I sure hope there's some cake involved.

    Yarn and cake…always a silver lining.
    At least you know your card (and money) have traveled….silver lining.
    The world is round and Karma is a bitch so no doubt the $50 pizza splurge was followed by the greatest upset stomach the world has ever known which prompted the trip to the rite-aid. Silver lining.
    Since Karma is still a bitch and thief used the card at the rite-aid, no doubt as the world turns she will bitch-slap aforementioned thief again in a way that you won’t see but they will feel…oohhh BIG silver lining.
    don’t worry – it will all block out.

    Oh Goody, Silver lining wins, by a wide margin! I love the colours on that Goody, and doesn’t it feel great to frog something and start over?

    I remember that puffy pirate sweater. It seemed like a good idea at the time.
