Quick it's late

and I've had too much wine once again.

I have like 4 hours left on the last sockapalooza sock and I've managed to knit most of a bag that I will felt when done. It's awesome and has a skull and crossbones on it. I really wanted to get it done before school tomorrow but LOL it's no where near. Have about four inches left to do of the sides and the bottom plus four feet of 8 stitch I-cord. You all know how much I'm looking forward to THAT right? Not! I had to buy one ball of black wool to do this but otherwise it's been a knit from my stash project. I've done really well with the knit from your stash thing, I've only bought three balls of yarn. Ok, maybe more, but I'm a bit foggy right now.

Suz, I'm glad you are back online, I've missed you and I wish it would have worked out to come and visit you but it just didn't on my end either. So knit on my fine duckies! (((hugs)))

I finished Harry Potter yesterday and I'm on the last leg of the sockapalooza socks.... yes, that was a terrible attempt at a pun. I've decided that after the socks are done I'm going make a felted bag then put some effort into finishing my Katherine the Great poncho that reminds me of grapes. I want to wear it this fall. So soon my little pretties I will post a photo of some socks!

Peace loves.

Cider and Happiness

Damn, I like cider Especially the hard kind. Usually it's Woodchuck, but I had something at O'Callahans (or whatever that new place is there over at the mall with the three damn turn arounds) that was just tastey. It was like Woodchuck and beer mixed together. Jess and I had a good time. She ate, I had soup (I guess that counts as eating too) and we both had cider.

One thing I really like about Jess is how much she will laugh at my totally ditzy moments and sayings. I had so much fun with her getting the Harry Potter book Friday and now tonight, it almost makes the disappointment of the last few days seem dim because they're sandwiched between these two great nights.

Hell, between Meg, Diana, Holly and Jess I'm well covered in the friendship area. I have been so truly blessed and each one are so unique in their own right that I get a well rounded view of what life is like for others. Diversity. I really like that word, meaning, and concept.

My SIL may have once told me to not be so open minded that my brain falls out but you know what? I like being so opened minded because it lets the light in. I'm having a hippy moment. Love. Peace. Knit. LOL Seriously, it all boils down to love, in it's very many levels and shades. Love first and peace follows. (In my world, knit and find it faster!) Now I'm not so sure I want to post this but I'm going to step out of my box and do so. Take a moment and look at the moon. Peace.

Sushi and Sadness

Well, I have to say that Sushi isn't quite as bad as I thought it would be but not something I think I want all that often. I'm kind of disappointed in the evening though, as a whole. I like the people I was out with but I thought they'd be more fun than they were. Oh well, I guess we can't win them all.

Now I'm feeling extra lonely because I'm home alone and I really really miss my kids. Sometimes hanging out with those who are younger than me can really make me feel excellent about where I am in my life in some regards. My kids are the shit. I may not have a marriage left but at least I have four wonderful kids that have come from it. I don't want to be young like that anymore, always looking for something to do, never really having that much fun. I do remember that from when I was actually that age.

Anyway, I'm glad I tried the sushi, it was definitely a neat experience. We also went to see Transformers which I have to say was a really good movie. I loved it, very action packed, a bit cheesy, and funny. The theater was so cold I could hardly stand myself, I hate being cold as much as I hate being too hot.

Last night at Diana's... now that's the kind of night I enjoy much more. We got yummy veggie sandwiches and sat on her porch and drank wine and talked and talked and talked. So I think I'm going to go get ready for bed, cry for awhile to cleanse my soul, and then read some Harry Potter.

Time Flies

We had some grand storms go through here on Thursday and knocked over 3 big pine trees in our neighborhood. We were without power for 2 days. When you have a well that means you don't have water and you can't cook anything because the stove is electric and you don't want to open the fridge... Anyway, it also makes it hard to do online homework also.

Now I'm kind of overwhelmed about what I have to do since I have to work all weekend AND I have plans for an actual social life! I'm still in disbelief myself! I have actual social commitments this week! ME! I wonder, does this mean I might actually HAVE a life? I'll fill you in on it as it occurs. I need to buckle down and get my sockapalooza socks done too. And speaking of sockapalooza, my sock pal sent me another postcard from Oregon! I just think that's the neatest thing! My poor sock pal receiver hasn't gotten more than a two comments from me. Maybe I had better take a clue from mine and at least post another one.

Well, I'm off to bed now, work was rough tonight and I want to read some more Harry Potter. See you soon baboons!

I'm sitting here waiting.....

I'm waiting for a phone call at midnight to be on the Castpod pod cast.... hummm. (Hey, don't go listen if you are easily offended because it's rude and crude and full of swear words k? I don't want anyone coming back and yelling at me. Consider yourself warned.) I'm super tired so he had better call soon or I'm going to be asleep in my chair. Thankfully I don't have to leave for school until 10 and I'm ready for bed. Just wanted to say Hi, I'm still here and I'm feeling pretty good. Hope you all are well. Talk to you soon rubber duckies!

This is POST # 500!!!!

Why did it take me over two years to get post 500??? Everyone knows how much I like to talk, geesh! It's been an interesting day. I had counseling this morning, went to lunch at the playscape with Jess, started crying for no reason, it lasted 2 minutes, stopped, spent the next hour laughing, and now I sit here trying to keep from going pee because I have to go for a pelvic ultrasound at 3:30.

My maternal grandmother died of ovarian cancer so we check mine every couple of years and I also am getting checked for fibroids also because, well, I'm just at that age LOL. So, here I am 1 hours and 45 minutes before my appointment and I seriously am feeling the urge to pee. *sigh* It's going to make for a long afternoon isn't it?

And to top off the whole day? I have to work tonight. And I don't know with WHOM I'm working either. That's probably the worst part because I can't gear myself up it. First biology test on Monday and I haven't had a chance to study yet.

The dissection of the rat was sooooo way cool! I totally, totally loved poking around inside the poor creature once it was open. I could NOT do the opening though, that once again fell to Joe. He seemed to have a few moments where it wasn't really settling well with him either but he, ummm, snipped through it. ROFLMAO. Oh I crack my self up. I almost wish I had photos.

I did a little crochet today on the second slit throat choker. When I get that one done I'll post a photo. I'm just not into finishing that last sock right now and what I really want to do is work on a sweater for me. *sigh* Sock first. Peace.

OK, ultrasound update: No fibroids and she said to not expect anything serious in the report. The radiologist has to make a report of course but the technician said there was nothing surprising so I should relax. Yeah! Another couple of years before my next one unless something bothers me ya know? Just thought I'd update you so no one worries. Love ya!

Post 499 has me showing you

something that has me pissed off, murderous hot! Check this shit out! This is so not cool and just shows how things are still backwards in this world. Ooooh I'm just too mad to post more right now.

Toes, toes and toes!

Me in pigtails LOL.
And new toes. It hurt to take off my skull and cross bones but I did it.
They don't always match so well.
But the right food turned out the best and if I don't show them together then who will notice? LOL Only me.
I'm running out of ideas so who knows what will be next. Maybe the skull and xbones again. Maybe I will get some acrylic paints and get more involved with the designs... No knitting done still, hopefully soon. At least I'm still being creative. I'll let you know how the disection goes tomorrow.

Guess what I did today?

No really, go ahead! No? No clue? Ok, fine, I guess you'd never come up with the correct answer unless you visit my myspace place. We disected an earthworm and a grasshopper today in bio lab. I took the grasshopper and snipped off the legs and the wings and then as I held the newly dismembered insect carcass in my hand I realized I could go no farther so I handed it to Joe. He had no problem with it so I cut into the earthworm which didn't bother me one bit. I did cut through on organ inside and it was the seminal ventricle or something... basically I gave a dead earthworm a vasectomy. Oh yes I did! ROFL it just tickles me for some reason. I keep saying it outloud too... I gave a dead earthworm a vasectomy today. *snort* Grossed out are you? Sorry. It's so funny to me though.

Thursday we're cutting up a perch and a rat. I don't think I'll have an issue with the fish but the rat? I equate them to pets so the task may fall to Joe again. Oh and they don't use formeldehyde anymore because it's a carcinogen.... they use Formalin and it made the specimens smell a lot like pickels! Which I also found kind of ammusing too.

I guess I'm a bit strange at times because no else thought they smelled like pickles. Not that I'd eat one, gross (!), but it helped me keep from getting sick to my stomach.

I've not been in the mood to knit the last couple of days, which is kind of strange, but it's probably the heat. Actually I've not been in the mood to do much of anything lately, I kind of feel like I've hit a point where I just want to give up on everything but school and my kids. I'm really looking forward to graduating and recreating my whole life the way I want it to be, or at least start taking steps towards that goal. And on the other hand it terrifies me at the same time. But doesn't excitement sometimes immitate terror? For me it does so I'm probably just a bit of both. Well, anyway, I'm off to do something, maybe just going to bed. I am kind of tired. Peace!

Had to add two more.

What's the use of making a choker and not showing it on? This one is for Holly and I'll make one for me tomorrow.


Here it is!

The Slit Throat Choker. It made for a really quick crochet. This one is 16 inches long using Lion Brand Microfiber stuff and five glass beads to set off the longest front drops.

Walking Dead Girl by Rob Zombie is a good song to listen to while wearing this! LOL


Hi ya!

Well, it's amazing to me how my moods ride a rollercoaster. Today I've been in such a decent mood and sometimes almost manic. I've not done any knitting that's worthy of posting about but Suz did send me a link to this and I'm probably going to make it tonight. Well, maybe not, me and my wine are getting along just fine right now. But then, it might be kind of fun to see how it turns out.

So anyway, I appreciate the support I always get from you all. It means more to me than you will ever know, seriously. We all need support don't we? And it's so hard to ask for but I'm glad when I do it's offered. Thank you.

I've started the instep of my toe up second sock for sockapalooza 4 and I don't think it will be too long before it's done. Then I have numerous other projects that need some attention, like Jessica's TSP gift that should have been done in June and probably will become a holiday gift. Better late than never I think. So I'm going to go off and do something else and let you all be. Love you all! Peace.

Oh yeah, who's still in the house?

I got an A in my curriculum class. Oh yeah!


I got mail!

All the way from Hawaii! Now I don't know if my sockapalooza pal is from there but I got a post card anyway! That was SERIOUSLY cool sockpal! And brightened my day. I have to get to Hawaii some day and see a live active volcano seeing as how I'm going to teach Earth science and all. Oh, and as a side note, you have beeeeutiful handwriting. NEAT-O!!! Thanks!
