How Crochet Was Invented

Posted 05-11-10 at 12:55 PM by RedHairedWitch (The Inattentive Witch)
I always thought that crochet was invented by an ADD woman, being one myself.


Once upon a time, long ago, probably in France, a woman with undiagnosed Attention Deficit Disorder was puttering around her cottage. Doing much but getting nothing done, of course.


In fact she was very busily working hard at trying to find the key to her chest full of yarn (and other odds and ends that had found their way into the chest). She tore the whole cottage apart...

How To Not Fit In

Posted 04-19-10 at 02:11 AM by RedHairedWitch (The Inattentive Witch)
Wear socks that donít match
Especially on Tuesday and Friday
And always with shorts
Wear a wrinkled pink blouse
With a bright red skirt
Red and pink are in the same family
Arenít they?
*

Donít get subtle hints
Be confused by mixed messages
And laugh at inappropriate jokes
Always say what you mean
And mean what you say
Because no one else does it that way
*

Take everyone at face

Tired of the Whiners

Posted 03-21-10 at 03:32 PM by RedHairedWitch (The Inattentive Witch)
Im thinking I need a break from ADDF. I'm gettting sick and tired of all the whinning an dmoaning.
Wah wah its so hard to make myself do the dishes. And all that crap.

Most of the people in my family are ADHD, and I've noticed something. There are people who rule their ADHD and people who let it rule them. I find myself having less and less respect for the kind of people who just lay down and complain. Or who expect meds to make everything better for them.

I want...

Bare Feet

Itís easy to get trained
You see
By the horrid Winter freeze
To bundle up
And sneak outside
And hide from the elements

Then one sunny day in March
You wake up and hear the sound of
The garbage truck coming down your lane
And you are late again
You grab the box of recycling and race down the stairs

On to the porch
To the sidewalk
In the nick of time
And smile at the garbage man

French

Posted 02-19-10 at 04:36 PM by RedHairedWitch (The Inattentive Witch)
If ADHD didn't make it hard enough to understand people, I find myself living in a city where 1/3 the poeple speak French! I don't speak French. Why must Canada be bilingual? Gah!

Its hard enough learning my way around a new city, geting use to horrid city life again and looking fo rowrk. But to also be surrounded by people who don't seak the same language and who are snobs about it. Oh man!

Vent ends here
