We're getting ready for the middle school ASB elections around here. My kids love the movie Napoleon Dynamite (although I confess I don't quite get it, myself). A certain twelve-year-old here was inspired by the movie to make herself a T-shirt for her campaign:

It was a learning experience.

Doesn't this instill in you more confidence for this candidate?

In knitting news, I worked three rounds (count 'em, three!) on my Level II vest while at the Ferals meeting last night. I'm knitting a very simple Fair Isle design, using an allover stitch pattern from Sheila McGregor's book. I kept losing my place last night, trying to keep up with the Feral conversation and keep all my post-it notes on the chart in the right place at the right time. One of these days I'm going to have to copy out the stitch pattern onto graph paper (instead of working directly from the pages in the book); that would make things just so much easier.

Hey, I'd vote for Allegra! Whoo-hoo!

Allegra gets my vote too!

Napoleon Dynamite is a big hit with my boys as well. If it makes you feel any better, I don't get it either.

Yeah, what is *up* with Napoleon and his set of friends all wearing 1970s clothes (the moon boots, the oversized eyeglasses, Pedro's moustache) and Napoleon dances to disco, and yet the cheerleaders have year 2000 outfits and dance to the Back Street Boys? I can't get past this to get into the plot. . . .
