For the 12 year olds:
Scene: Our vehicle, 2:30 p.m. on our way from San Francisco, CA to Eugene, OR.
While Hungry Like a Wolf blares on the radio, I let out a silent, putrid belch borne of the Indiana Jones Whopper I had for lunch in Weed, CA. Katr fixes me with a withering glare.
Katr: Holy. SHIT.
Me: I know. This Indy burger keeps producing sequels.
Simon Le Bon: Mouth is ALIVE with juices like WINE and I'm hungry like a wollll-
Me: If the franchise has one more release, I'm gonna have to start charging admission. But kids will still get in fr...

For the knitters:
Scene: Our vehicle, 3:00 p.m., after leaving the Tom Bihn factory and showroom in Seattle where we got an amazing personal tour and left with many bags.
Katr: I can't believe you talked them into giving you that Swift Knitting Bag.
Me: I know. Pull over so I can look at it again!
Katr: How about you take a break from using your mind to drive the car and use it to picture the bag instead?
That's right, knitters - I'm helping to build Katr's Funky, Chic and Cool laptop bag review empire by reviewing - what else? - knitting bags.
And the Swift Knitting Bag by Tom Bihn is the first review up! Here's a quote:
With its clever construction, myriad organizational options and action-oriented name, I predicted that the Swift would take me from knit klutz to knit kninja in seconds. That's right! Knit Kninja! Hear that wooshing sound? That was me, finishing a whole sock before you could turn your head!
I do actually review the bag further down the page. It's a pretty awesome bag. Makes me want to knit things. Like my own shuriken and multiple sets of knunchucks. Kninja!
