Now who might this be for?
This is insane. I hardly have time to crochet these days. I like doing 5 or 6 test runs before making anything pretty, but that's a luxury I don't seem to have these days. So my dear, I wish I could have made your birthday present a bit classier, but you'll have to be satisfied with this thing.
Meanwhile on the Administrative front, I have been reading books on "Management". You wouldn't believe some of the nonsense these Business people utter. "Big-impact items", "calibration of voice-of-customer verification" "client/server deliverables" "flywheel of revenue" "benchmarking against other companies"
I mean, for God's sake. What have they done to my language? "Deliverable" is not a noun. "Big impact" is not an adjective. Does grammar undergo some mysterious transformation when you hit the billion-dollar "benchmark"? Luckily my grammar is safe from that danger.
