200th Post and a Day Full of Pointless Knitting

200th post = yay.

Well, been knitting all damned day and haven't gotten a thing finished. I mainly realized that I don't know how to work a yfwd, K1. That and this whole business with cross stitches is hard. the part I'm having issues with is the Cr6R; "slip 6 sts onto RHN dropping extra loops (which is in the previous row, and not the issue), slip same 6 sts onto LHN, K 4th, 5th, and 6th sts, K first, 2nd, and 3rd sts, slip all 6 sts off LHN tog." Ouch.

Decided I'm going to actually do what I've been making templates for and knit some of the photos that I have taken, I just need more yarn.

Christina seems really upset. I don't know why but it's making me nervous. If she wants to talk about it sometime I'll be here. I have a sneaking suspicion it might be because ex-roomie-Paige was here, but I really don't know. It worries me, I guess. [Edit] It's stress. We're all stressed because of money. Everyone is.

Happy Thanksgiving, All!!!

It's Thanksgiving, and something I haven't done since I was a kid (that I feel the need to do now) is actually state out loud what I'm thankful for. I'll make a list.
  • I'm thankful that my grandma doesn't celebrate Thanksgiving or I'd be at her house around 5 getting lectured. I'm glad at this point I'm old enough to go home when things go awry.
  • I'm thankful we still live in a house. It's cold outside.
  • I'm thankful to be talking to Lil and Tibby-Meg again.
  • I'm thankful to have Thanksgiving day off with Anthony.
Christina mentioned she was thankful that she could fly in World of Warcraft. Allen was thankful for a roof over his head. Anthony didn't have anything to say, but he's playing Guitar Hero, which means he's a pretty happy camper right now.

Oh, yeah, I'm also thankful that Allen brought Lindt orange-dark-chocolate bars home. Thanks Allen!!!

So what ever happened with that black hole in Sweden?

Etsy Shop

Working on setting up an Etsy shop. :D
I'm excited. I actually have to start knitting before I can post, though.
One of the first items I'll have up will probably be Twilight inspired Bella's Mittens. I've been working on the pattern and do believe I have the cables right now. Just have to get the sizing down. Anybody have any ideas on what else I can knit and sell? Mittens? Socks? Cthuhlu? Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Well, several times we've called, both work and home, and still no return call. We drove up to BK yesterday because her manager said she didn't work there, and of course, lo and behold, there she was. She didn't talk to us, but Gail sure did. I don't know what she told Gail, but it sure as shit wasn't the truth. We're sending him some certified mail tomorrow to make sure she gets the message. That's something that'll go through in court, if needbe.

More laters.

Updated dA, take a look. :P

Haven't heard from Paige since she left. I guess it's how I was; afraid to call, afraid to visit, just wanted the bad times to end.

Been beta testing QuakeLive. It's fun, I suppose. Just like Quake III.

That's it for now!!

D & D Night

Wellllll, it's D & D night in the Shoshone house, and everyone is excited. Well, not really. D & D night is every Friday. At least we can play without creepy hair-zilla stalking around.

Been feeling more creative lately. That's a good thing. Finished Allen's Christmas present. He reads this boring stuff, so if you want to know what I made him, mail me.

Have to go eat, Christina is going to stab me. O.o

Restraining Order

Paige has been breaking into my room at night. Found bent up bobby-pins in her room. I can't even express the frustration I've been feeling.

I've been asleep for days...

I just slept for 12 hours. Ouch. The smoke really got to me I think. Feel fine now, except for the coughing.

House Fire

Just had a small house fire. Someone thought it would be a good idea to put hot ashes from the fireplace into a cardboard box. Hot ashes. Cardboard box. Bye bye $800 carpet. Lucky we had some left over. Anthony is trying to patch it now. I can't even. No words.

Happy B-Day Tibby-Meg

Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday to you. Happy birthday dear Tibby-cousin-Meg...
Happy birthday to you.

I Heard What You Said

I'm not a party killer. You're a jerk.
Happy Fucking Birthday, jackass.

Went to EatinPark to get out of the house for a bit. Saw Lil and Brandy, and their two friends. I feel like a jerk, I can't remember their names now. I swear I don't even remember my own name sometimes.

Well, after we got home, I certainly didn't feel like talking to you. But I did. And you made me feel worse.

If that isn't bad enough, Tiffani is making out with all of the females in the house, except Paige, who got drunk and passed out anyway an hour after she got home.

Someone peed on the toilet seat. I'm not mentioning any names. But it was gross.

Someone also smoked half of the cigarettes I had left. Also not mentioning any names. But just because you don't feel like rolling your own and just because they're out on the counter, that does not mean that they're free.

Happy Samhain. Happy Halloween.
