Things are going pretty much better than usual.
♦ Entertained friends for the weekend.
♦ Taken said friends to the drive-in for a double feature of GI Joe and Transformers 2 (GI Joe is superior to Transformers 2, which means that Transformers 2 is quite abysmal). Much rum was consumed. I would advise playing drinking games based on these films’ ridiculousness only with extreme caution. Consider yourself warned.
♦ Introduced friends to Haru Ichiban, and consumed (again) more ramen than I ought to. Note to self: one onigiri makes you nearly as full as two.
♦ Finished the heel on the second Rivendell sock. I will be watching Due South on DVD and attempting to complete the sock. This will be a sock-knitting record for me. It gives me hope for the timeliness of future projects.
♦ Had something to keep me busy all day today! It was PowerPoint, but I got to create lots of charts! I like charts.
♦ Made a little progress in my bug phobia. I had a palmetto bug dive bomb my head, and I didn’t throw up (not that I’ve ever thrown up in that situation, but I’ve never had that happen and I’ve always imagined that I’d throw up).
♦ Survived Lemmy’s first visit to the vet. Actually, the husband took him, but I was a giant bundle of nerves until I knew he was fine. Just another reason why I am not the parent of human children yet. Can you imagine if this was my offspring, and not a cat? Well, I can, and it is scary.
♦ Found this awesome video, which is also kind of creepy:
I’m making my way slowly through my stack of research books, but honestly all I want to do at the moment is knit. And I realized on Saturday that I promised a Chronicle by this month. I shall put it off for another week. Nobody really reads it, anyhow.
