I don’t usually do this…

July 30, 2008

but I was tagged by KnitSteph and to be honest, I was feeling a bit slack since I had WIPs to share today, but due to a 13.5 hour work day and then needing to get some school work done, well, pictures didn’t happen today. So instead… The Rules: Rules are posted at the beginning. [...]

I am sitting in a hotel in VA waiting for, I don’t know what. I can’t sleep. I originally logged out hours ago. I am going to try again in a few minutes, but since I was sitting here I figured I would give a non-update on the knitting – I finished a bunch of [...]

I promised an announcement today. I had planned on it being a regular blog post on the neglected Masters program as well, but today it just didn’t happen. I have progressed a little on it though. Anyway…you don’t care about that, you want to know my news… Well, back many years ago, AFTER I became [...]

Yes it is Wednesday and that means I should be bringing you WIPs, but to be honest, I am sitting in a hotel room in Lynchburg, VA, and while I have my camera and cord and everything with me, the thought of pulling all that crap out tonight makes me sort of want to just [...]

Holy crapmonkey!

May 1, 2008

This is not a knitting related post…sorry! I just got a call about a new job opportunity. This would be a totally new job function in HR – I would still have some of my programs, but not all of them – just the big high profile ones. I don’t want to talk much about [...]

I am watching something on the Science Channel about the power of laughter. I think we all need to laugh a little more in this world. As a society we are entirely too serious these days. I am as guilty of this as anyone. That isn’t the point of this post though. CLOWNS FREAK ME [...]

Where’s the knitting??

February 6, 2008

There isn’t any! Well, there is a very tiny bit and a couple FOs (I guess I could post one of those today) but following my lovely incident and the welcoming of Stitchy, I haven’t done any knitting. Seriously. None. Not a bit. I have been typing for work, but I have been resting my [...]

Say hello to my little friend

February 5, 2008

I reserve Monday nights for Masters knitting. It keeps me focused on the project to block a few hours a week for it. Last night was no different. But why is there only one swatch? Well, as I was finishing up this one, my phone rang and I figured it was a good time to [...]

Gas stations and getting lost

September 20, 2007

The drive TO Atlanta was uneventful. Cristi and I stopped at Taco Bell just south of Gastonia and we got to Atlanta in good time and Olivia’s directions were GREAT (hence we got through the highlands with NO issues). The way home was not so uneventful. First we stopped at a gas station in middleofnowhere [...]
