First off: happy birthday to the most marvy cin1607
. May there be naked boys of your choice performing whatever activity you choose, even if it's cleaning up your house.
Second: EEEEEEEE!!! SQUEEEEEE! Serenity tonight!!!!! (It's like comedy tonight, only with tight pants).
I keep going back and forth on eee and squee. Squee for the obvious reasons, eee because I'm convinced I'm going to get snarled in pre-holiday traffic on the way down and arrive just as the doors are closing and then stakebait
and I will have to stare wistfully at what might have been. [sniffle]
But won't know until tonight I suppose. At the very least I'm all packed and ready, so after work tonight it's just a matter of going home, getting changed, quickly scarfing some food and ideally finishing just as stakebait
arrives at the train station for me to pick her up.lucifrix
asked me about beading stuff, so I've got that in the bag for us to go over. I flipped through my patterns last night and got all sighy. I miss beading! Sadly it's a bit too rich for my blood as a hobby right now. I know knitting can be too, but as a beginner I don't mind working with cheaper yarns (in fact I prefer it, as I'd rather not screw up the pricey stuff) and a ball or skein of yarn can keep me amused for days if not weeks. With beading it's still pricey, even if you buy wholesale, and I don't have enough of a bead stash left over to be able to sit and play. Ah well. Stuff to get back to once I have more spending cash available.
In knitting news I'm starting a baby sweater. I thought about making my next project a blanket but then I figured take the real
plunge and go for something that's not some form of a circle or rectangle. I started last night while watching Lost, but already I think I'm going to frog it and start again. There's no problem with the stitches or anything, I just think I'd like to make it a slightly larger size, esp considering how fast wee ones grow, plus how big babies in this family tend to be in the first place. So better to frog now then when I'm past the halfway point or something.
Work's been busy now that the boss is back. Phone's been ringing off the hook, which has me ready to kill people with my bare hands. Writing-wise I've got some stuff on deadline for this weekend but, knock on wood, I'm not anticipating problems with that. If I get those things done I may take some time for writing for myself. There's this thing with Wes and Angel and tiny buttons. 8)
