Leaning

img_4497copy
I think I really need to bring my Journey Wheel upstairs to join this tete a tete, don’t you? Now that the Kiwi has moved on to a new spinner, the two left in my bedroom are busy getting to know each other. Up until now, the Kiwi and the Lendrum have been the ones next to each other, but now, when not being actually spun on, the Little Gem is hanging out with the Lendrum.

They look kind of cute together, actually, with the Lendrum leaning in . . . Does anyone remember the discussion about “leaning” in the movie “While You Were Sleeping?” I did so love the appalling character of Joe Jr . . . Mom and I stayed at an Inn once that had one of its own and he was awful in person, but the character in the movie? Sort of sweet in his overbearing, kind of obnoxious way…

Anyway, quoted here courtesy of IMDB.

Lucy:
[to Jack] Okay, um. What do you mean by the leaning thing? You mean because he gave me flowers?

Jack:
And then you *leaned*

Lucy:
And then I leaned.

Jack:
Yeah.

Lucy:
Okay, how did I lean when I leaned?

Jack:
It was a lot different from hugging. Hugging’s very different. Hugging
that involves arms and hands; and leaning is whole bodies moving in
like this
[leans toward her suggestively]

Jack:
. Leaning involves *wanting*… and *accepting*. *Leaning*…

Joe Jr.:
Hey Luce! Is this guy bothering you?

Lucy:
[Laughs] No, no.

Joe Jr.:
Are you sure? Because it looks like he’s *leaning.*

Well, the Lendrum is leaning. This worries me a little. What if Jessalu was right? Maybe I’d better get that Journey Wheel up here right away!

I have been working on my mystery-I-can’t-tell-you-about-it project, so my “unshielded” knitting projects are now going slower than ever . . . As if that Celtic Icon that I’ve been working on since October really needed MORE time in the knitting bag.


Speaking of worrying, this situation worries me a whole lot. And I not the only one. Not least because this is one of my favorite non-knitting blogs, but because it’s just wrong on so many levels. I don’t want to discuss them here, but, well, this is one of those things that you either understand (which I’m guessing most of the people reading my blog do), or you don’t (in which case, why are you here?) There are just some really sick people out there…. Not you, of course, but you know, those other people….

  1. oy. i swear, this world is getting sicker and sicker.

  2. The Leaning scene is one of my favorites ever :)

    I took one look at one of those posts and it is so sick that I’ve decided not to read any further…

    cheers Eva

  3. Oh I love that movie, whenever I feel sick I watch it because it’s my comfort movie.

  4. Wheels can be like rabbits…. Too bad they don’t spin the angora themselves…. :-) Okay, bad joke.

    All this news of threats and such is very disheartening indeed!

  5. It’s so disheartening to see that the depravity of society has made its way to the blog world too. How does one defend themself from such things? I have a friend who writes political commentary on his blog was receiveing death threats on it. He had to ban the IP address of the offender.

  6. uh oh…you’d better not leave those two alone much longer! ;o)

  7. Yikes. Thanks for the link to the situation – but yikes!

  8. I am catching up on posts. I did click over to the situation you refer to, but I’m not sure what the original issue was about, since I’m not familiar with these blogs. Could you fill me in?
