Sockapalooza 4....

I haven't gotten my pal yet, *pout*, and it seems that a lot of people have already. I'm ready to start the stalking and then the picking of yarn and pattern. I've been working on a TSP for my friend Jess and since I have no idea if she will find her way here I can't post a photo of it... well, maybe I can tease you all a bit with a corner. I've also picked up my Catherine the Great poncho and am now on to the front and the second ball of yarn. God I so love that yarn, and the name of course too, except it's spelled wrong ya know. *snort*

I'm totally enjoying my time off from school so far, despite the personal stress. One week from today and I get to start Biology I lecture/lab and a curriculum class. I have gotten all my grades except one: A in chem lab and a C- in the lecture (I will be repeating that one this fall because I have to have a C in it), a C+ in Historical Geology (wtf? how did that happen?) and an A in my Lifetime Fitness and Wellness class. I'm waiting for my World History grade. Oh, and get THIS! I can't sign up to retake the Chem Lecture class because I don't meet the pre-reqs! Yes, it seems that even if you take the class once you still have to get an override.... I so just love Eastern Michigan U (NOT). So that's what's been up lately.

The house is still a mess but I have done a couple of things. I also am on a mission to lose some weight. Figure my life isn't going to change itself with out a little effort on my part eh? Love ya all! Peace

Edit: I had to go request my Pals info. Done, went, stalked, and am very lucky to have a pal who has similiar tastes to me! She lives some where warm so will not get knee socks. I on the other hand, live in an area where wool is very welcomed come Thanksgiving and the brighter and wilder the better LOL. Sock yarn shopping tomorrow! YEAH!

Socks that Rocks

Socks that Rocks kit #2 came today and I'm in love and can't stop squeezing and stroking this lovely yarn! ooooh it's puuuuuuurrrrrrty! No photos yet, feeling down today and have a headache, and tummy is feeling strange, and I'm very, very tired. So I'm going to go off and snuggle up with my new skein of yarn and take a nap. Peace!

More Photos, but not of yarn!

I went on a field trip down to Milan today to a private landfill. One of the layers they dug up for it was from the Early Devonian and contains lots of marine fossils. This is the majority of what I found.
These are three of the four Trilobite pieces I found. The one in the center is really rather large. Too bad the rest of it wasn't there.
Please excuse my pruney fingers, I had just gotten done washing these babies off.
Some of the fossils in this chunk have pyrite on them, you know, fools gold? Yep, rather sparkley.
And here is the fourth trilobite butt I found, stuck in a rock chunk. I have a lot of other photos too but blogger only lets you do five at a time so I'll post some more another time. I had so much fun and didn't think we were able to stay long enough LOL. Anyway, really cool fossils and some extra credit points for me, yeah! Now I think I'm going to nap and/or knit.... probably knit until I nap ROFL. Peace.

It's a willy
It's a double ended willy warmer.... no.....
It might actually turn out to be a SOCK! ROFL the looks I've gotten at school while knitting this have been a total hoot! Love this yarn color! LOVE. IT.
And here's a kitty in a box for your viewing pleasure LOL. Albert hardly fits in it and it's from a pair of hiking boots so isn't a normal size shoe box. Anyway, mom is still in the hospital, had a stress test done this morning, waiting for results still, and looks like there might not be anything wrong with her heart. Of course that would be good news but the next question is what IS the problem. She's not coming home soon I'll wager. I will be done with this semester one week from Monday so the next week and a half will be a bit on the intense side. Let's see how much knitting I get done then eh?

I'm also glad to see that I'm not the only one who joined the Sockapalooza4 craziness. Oh, and I'm expecting this to show up in the next day or two. I love new stuff!

I just wanted to pop over here and say hi. I've been hanging on the MySpace lately because I don't really have much to say about knitting right now and a lot to say about my life. Things are still the same here, slowly getting better, but still pretty much the same. I swing from being ok with it to being really, really pissed off. I feel like a rubberband that's getting stretched a bit too far and could snap at any point. *sigh* gotta love life eh? Anyway, my Sock that Rocks sock is looking like a penis, as is/did everyone elses, and I hope to turn the heel today. I HAVE to take a photo of it before then though LOL. Peace peeps, just wanted to say I'm doing ok still. (((hugs)))
