Because Then You Don't Freeze to Death

Someone is tweeting as Laura Ingalls Wilder (@HalfPintIngalls) and as someone that grew up as a Little House obsessive (books, not TV series) I am highly amused. In the spirit of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month), or NaKniSweMo (National Knit a Sweater Month), Laura is participating in NaTwiHayMo (National Twist Hay Month). She's twisting up 33 sticks of hay a day to use as fuel.
Twisting 33 hay sticks a day for NaTwiHayMo is hard, but it's so satisfying when you win! Because then you don't freeze to death.
On October 27, she was getting ready to celebrate the harvest and Halloween
It's time to bob for apples! Except here on the prairie we bob for salt pork instead.
She was a bit afraid that her costume was a bit edgy.
It'd be a riot if I dressed up as a grasshopper plague for Hallowe'en, wouldn't it? Or is that "too soon?"
But have no fear, she made it work.
But I'd be, you know, a SEXY grasshopper plague.
At least when Laura finds the high point in Chicago not getting the 2016 Olympics, it doesn't come off as really negative.
Chicago is now out of the running for the Olympics. Maybe now De Smet will get it? We have PLENTY of room in S. Dakota!
Laura's really taking to this internet thing.
Oh dear, I clicked on this link and learned what "NSFW" means. Naughty Shameless French Women! http://ow.ly/li2g
