About Polgara

Me

I live in Southern California, work for an arts institution, and spend my time knitting/crocheting, playing pool (8 ball, mostly), watching movies and TV, and trying to figure out how to get rid of more stuff.

I’ve been knitting since January 2004, and crocheting since spring 2007, when I had to teach myself so I’d have something to do while I was on jury duty (no knitting needles allowed). I have a short attention span, so I mostly make scarves, hats, shawls and fingerless mitts, although I did once knit a toddler sweater.

I like caramel, Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries, and baby alpaca yarn, and hate mayonnaise, reality television, and double-pointed needles. I have two cats, one car, too many books and dvds, and a serious yarn stash problem. I love taking pictures and writing in my bullet journal; I have a weakness for Mo Willems books and saltwater taffy (vanilla and peppermint!); and firmly believe Buffy the Vampire Slayer is the greatest television show ever. I hated sports until I moved away from Boston oh so many years ago, and now I’m a casual to avid fan of the Red Sox and Patriots.

I don’t want to give too much of myself away here, but on the other hand, this page looks pretty bare so far.  Fortunately, song lyrics do a great job of taking up space while still entertaining!  So allow me to present….

Code Monkey by Jonathan Coulton

Code Monkey get up get coffee
Code Monkey go to job
Code Monkey have boring meeting
With boring manager Rob
Rob say Code Monkey very dilligent
But his output stink
His code not “functional” or “elegant”
What do Code Monkey think?
Code Monkey think maybe manager want to write god damned login page himself
Code Monkey not say it out loud
Code Monkey not crazy, just proud

Code Monkey like Fritos
Code Monkey like Tab and Mountain Dew
Code Monkey very simple man
With big warm fuzzy secret heart:
Code Monkey like you

Code Monkey hang around at front desk
Tell you sweater look nice
Code Monkey offer buy you soda
Bring you cup, bring you ice
You say no thank you for the soda cause
Soda make you fat
Anyway you busy with the telephone
No time for chat
Code Monkey have long walk back to cubicle he sit down pretend to work
Code Monkey not thinking so straight
Code Monkey not feeling so great

Code Monkey like Fritos
Code Monkey like Tab and Mountain Dew
Code Monkey very simple man
With big warm fuzzy secret heart:
Code Monkey like you
Code Monkey like you a lot

Code Monkey have every reason
To get out this place
Code Monkey just keep on working
See your soft pretty face
Much rather wake up, eat a coffee cake
Take bath, take nap
This job “fulfilling in creative way”
Such a load of crap
Code Monkey think someday he have everything even pretty girl like you
Code Monkey just waiting for now
Code Monkey say someday, somehow

Code Monkey like Fritos
Code Monkey like Tab and Mountain Dew
Code Monkey very simple man
With big warm fuzzy secret heart:
Code Monkey like you
