Stabbings

So apparently the stabbing yesterday was a random attack, the assailant a mentally unstable man. kgw.com is reporting that the assailant lives across the street from my building, and picked the victim at random. My sense of “Thank God I was safely inside” kicked in when I read that. It could have been anyone who was outside at 12:17 pm.

But mentally unstable people live everywhere and this could have happened anywhere. Do I plan to live in fear because there are people in the world who aren’t right in the head? No, I don’t. I’m still plenty freaked out by it though, and I said a prayer for the stabbing victim, that he would survive. I said a prayer for his wife and did a mental apology for thinking her screams where just another crazy person on the street having an episode. In the future, I’ll stick my head out the window when I hear screaming to make sure someone isn’t being attacked…

Crazy stuff. Crazy stuff.

Oh My God

I went to Sudsy at around 11:30 or so to do some work and discovered I had left the key in the pocket of the pants I was wearing yesterday. I drove back home, parked, and went upstairs to have a bite to eat since I was hungry.

Sometime later, I heard a big commotion on the street below. Screaming, shouting, lots of noise. I didn’t think much of it because occasionally there is a lot of yelling on the street. I live in a old apartment building at the corner of NW Hoyt and NW 23rd. Sometimes a mentally disturbed person will start shouting – we’re used to it.

A little while after that I come outside to drive to Sudsy and there’s a police line – cops everywhere, news cameras. What the heck??

Right now only kgw.com has any information, but there was a stabbing outside the Ram’s Head, a McMenamin’s restaurant that is located in the first floor of my apartment building. All that screaming was the wife of the victim. I’m just completely shocked. I live on the fourth floor, right above the street where the stabbing happened. The assailant got away. I’m just verklempt about the whole thing.

Yarn Madness

Hey, you remember my whining about JoAnn discontinuing their totally awesome Sensations Confetti yarn? Yeah, it was a real blow.

But I discovered that Michaels is carrying a yarn that is EXACTLY the same!! The colors are different, but if you loved that totally cool Confetti texture, this is it.




It’s Patons Pooch. I love it!! Michaels has quite the yarn selection these days. That’s awesome.
