Let’s not pussyfoot around it: knitting is just not a priority this week. The week leading up to Christmas, the to-do list is so compelling that I find I need stronger procrastination aids than knitting. My choice: video surfing. This morning I was watching a video of Fanny Cradock making a trifle, over at The Women’s Room, and I thought, geez, Fanny talks funny, but can’t we do better?
Yes we can. Here is America’s own Paula Deen, who never met a one-syllable word, cooking from her Christmas magazine with Craig Ferguson.
I agree with the commenter who said that every time he calls her baby, I melt a little. I refuse to believe that Paula’s accent is authentic. It’s entirely possible that she’s from Brooklyn and is just pulling our lay-ugs.
Hope your holiday pray-ups are going way-ell!
