Salsa Doritos and a hour to get out of the city ...but I will not bitch today.
Instead I will post a few pics from the last few weeks. You all know Angel - here she is helping me fold laundry. And - Robyn & Jake, two very good friends of mine whom I love & adore. We were at the Richmond NASCAR race last month, in the fan area. Jake is a musician and also races in the NASCAR regional truck series, Robyn works in retail management and sells Mary Kay. The other pic is Slinky Baby, sunning herself. (She is so worthless sometimes.)
WHY IS IT SO COLD IN HERE????? I turned off the damn a/c, am wearing a sweater and a long-sleeved shirt and I have jeans and slippers on. I should probably get up and make some tea. I was in North Baltimore today doing charity work for my company. It was cold. It was rainy. There were over a hundred riled-up schoolkids and nothing but fried chicken and old coffee for lunch. And it took me over an hour to get home, when it should have been 15 mins tops. Traffic was so bad, I could actually sit at the lights while they were green (but no one was moving anywhere) and knit. Which I did - I had my Enchante WIP with me LOL I stopped at Three Brothers closer to home to get some take-out for dinner, but ended up eating half a bag of Salsa Doritos because I am a dork and stowing the baked ziti with spinach for lunch tomorrow... Now I am almost done with a mindless eyelash scarf project I decided to whip up because I wanted to have the instant gratification of a FO so what better way than to plow through 2 sk of Bernat Disco in electric fuschia with sz 13 scarf needles hahaha. Like I really needed another pink furry scarf, right? No worries. I'll wear it or give it as a gift - haven't decided yet. What is important here is that I knitted and enjoyed myself! Woop!
Now all I need is my first SP5 gift and I'll be happier.
I haven't heard from my knitty SP since Sept. 26th. (S)he sent me an email apologizing that she hadn't had internet access since August due to personal/technical problems and swore that there was a gift being sent that weekend. I'm getting worried because since then I posted two messages on the knittyboards, emailed her twice to check on her, see if she was okay and still no answer.
I hope I don't seem like I'm getting all in a tizzy about SP gifting, but I have sent 2 out already, with my 3rd & 4th justthisclose to being sent out - just wanted to pace myself - but, well you can understand...
(Last round I sent 7 gifts in 3 months - *whew* - and the Holiday SP round is about to start...)
Well, a cup of green tea has my name all over it. Will be back laters!
