So I'm reading the Tsarina's blog, and she mentions overdyeing Lion Brand Magic Stripes yarn.
I did not mean to dye any yarn today. "Dye yarn" was nowhere on any of my Hipster PDA cards. "Dogs need heartwormer" and "Place van ad" were: "Dye yarn" was not.
But somehow, when I went to the kitchen for lunch, I found myself with Paas Easter egg dye tabs and some Lion Brand sock yarn that I bought back when I first re-started knitting on needles.
Instead of nuking lunch, I was nuking bowls of bright pink and purple and green dye.
Boy. Does Lion Brand Magic Stripes ever suck up the dye. sluuuuurrrp, like a kid sucking in spaghetti. It was amazing. First it slurped up all the liquid. Then when I squeezed it, it kept all the dye. Just like that.
I commented on the Tsarina's blog, "Now look what you made me do!" and she replied, "Pictures or it didn't happen!"

Even brighter in person than on the screen.
[Edited to add: I didn't realize Lion Brand had discontinued Magic Stripes. Yarndex still shows the original colors of the two skeins above >here< in Shade Card 1.]
[PS: No, I didn't notice any earthquake early this morning. But maybe that's why Ajax was whiskering me in the face before my alarm went off.]
