a little yarn p0rn, a lot of fugly

My latest yarn order arrived. But there's a slight hiccup...

There should be 4 cones of sycamore - not 1 cone of sycamore (leftmost) and 3 cones of navy. The sycamore is completely sold out so I don't know what's going to happen. I am awaiting instructions. And I was so happy when the sycamore was re-listed because it sold out the first time before I had a chance to buy any and now this... Sigh - maybe this yarn was never meant to be with me.

So what do you think of the fugly sock? I've seen unloved yarn swaps out there but is there an ugly sock swap that I should know about? Maybe I should just frog it and give the yarn away...

And I have been tagged by Ann for a birthday meme - go to Wikipedia, type in your birthday month and day and list 3 events, 2 birthdays, and 1 holiday. So here goes...

Wikipedia says:
1808 - Simon Fraser reaches Pacific near New Westminster
1983 - The Police release their final album, "Synchronicity", which would eventually spend 17 weeks at #1 on the U.S. album chart (they just got back together and their very first concert was in Vancouver!)
2003 - International Olympic Committee selects Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada to host the 2010 Winter Olympics (I remember this day because the company I used to work for runs Whistler/Blackcomb - one of the major Olympic venues. The whole company partied that afternoon.)
1929 - Imelda Marcos, First Lady of the Philippines (I love shoes, too!)
1970 - Scotty 2 Hotty, American wrestler (just cuz it rhymes with my name)
- Canada Day. Under the Holidays Act, Canada Day is always observed on July 1 unless that date falls on a Sunday, in which case it is observed on July 2

I don't know who else to tag... Gladys? Anybody who reads this blog is welcome to participate.
