Last month I was lucky enough to get to go to a book signing by Stephanie Pearl McPhee. I went with a new friend on a road trip to Baltimore to see her and it was totally worth it. She is an awesome stand-up comedian; dry, sarcastic, with perfect comic timing. I laughed so hard for an hour and half that my laugh muscles were sore the next day. She read a chapter from her new book, and at some point made a joke about her brother being so practical he practically shaved with Occam's razor. My scientist friend and I laughed out loud and then found that that reference was pretty obscure for the knitting audience. And I can't help but blog without a picture. Here are the beautiful daffodils that came up like a gift in the garden of my new house.
