I've taken the pledge!

Ok. This was posted by someone on Rebecca's Blog in regards to the "say no to the poncho" webring.

the manolo no-poncho pledge

"i, kim, swear on the head and/or the grave of my sainted granny to never wear, buy, knit, crochet, or fashion from the old throw rug, the poncho. and if the poncho it is given to me as the gift, i will graciously thank the giver and then, when she has left, put the poncho into the dog's bed and/or the trash as the case she may be. only by doing these things faithfully can i help end for the good of the humanity the scourge that is the poncho."


In other news, saw Ring Two last night. AWFUL! complete crap! Stay away! Beware! Sure, I new that the odds were against it, being #2 in a series means that its going to be crap. (for excepts to this rule see Empire Strikes Back & Aliens) But still, the only thing it achieved was to make me miss Seattle, what with its sweaping panoramas of the sound & evergreens, not to mention all the wonderful architecture.. sigh.

Got a few more rows done on sis' sock. Probably won't get much knitting done today. We move in just under 2 weeks & I have tons of packing to do!

LMAO! Love the pledge!
I've not seen the first Ring but I take it you liked it since it scared you!

considering the first movie scared the heck out of me, is there a chance that this one actually answered any questions I might have had the first time around?

Kimberly said...

um.. probably not. And it turned the main character (Naomi Watts) into a complete idiot. One of the reasons I liked the first one is because she was intelligent & determined. Plus, it just doesn't make much sense! It would have been much better if it had all new characters. :(

Bummer....have you seen the extra disc material that was recently released with the first DVD?

Kimberly said...

hmmm.. i dunno.. I have the dvd, but can't remember if I watched the extra's or not. I have seen the japanese original ringu & its one of the few times where the american version is better than the japanese. I am anxious to see the japanese sequels to see if ring2 is based of those or an original idea.
