Hi!

Whee.

Yay for non-consistent blog updating. Or something.

Anyway. Life is huge right now, and I’m sort of unmotivated (trust me, you’ve fared better than LJ, which has heard me whine pretty consistently lately).

But I did stuff. I have:

Completed 60% of a Francie sock, using Jitterbug (which is a lovely yarn to knit with).

Spun and plied over 300 yards of various wools, using my drop spindle only.

Watched a terribly recorded Bollywood film (one of the 256 Wonder Husband bought off CraigsList for $20).

Completed an extremely successful photoshoot in L.A.

Consumed possibly the best taco I’ve ever eaten at an L.A. taqueria, after ordering in Spanish and while cheering on Spain in the World Cup semifinals, along with the rest of the restaurant.

Watched Spain win the World Cup, despite the bullying they got from the Netherlands (strangely enough, I found myself cheering for the Netherlands, but couldn’t figure out a reason why, except that once my pee-wee soccer team wore the same color uniforms, the year we went undefeated).

Finished some baby knit items that I desperately need to send to my sister-in-law before the niece becomes too large to wear them (the niece is recently birthed, and growing as babies tend to do).

Discovered that I desperately needed time off teaching to recharge my batteries. Whew.

Cleaned my house and went through stuff that has been shuffled around between houses for four years now. I can see the floor! I’m putting things away! I’ve been sweeping and cleaning regularly! These things may seem like givens, but I’m apparently not particularly successful at being an adult. Or picking up my socks.

And finally, I got bored with the Highlander and moved on to Dark Shadows, Doctor Who, and now Buffy (I’d watched it all when it aired, but it’s nice to re-watch, especially because now I can appreciate how truly awesome Cordelia is).

My camera is lamer than ever, so I can’t promise photos. But I’ll try. I need to document the spinning and the socks, at any rate.

About HappyGoth

By day, I'm a graphic designer. By night, I'm a knitter. I'm doing my part to keep Hotlanta stylish. I imagine that if you don't already understand the title of the blog, you're probably confused and perhaps slightly annoyed, but never fear - I do have a reason (and it's a good one). Having gone to hear Stephanie Pearl McPhee, and then having been inspired to blog about knitting, I found myself wondering what to call the blog. I recalled a conversation I had with Mouse and the Chicken Goddess about why it is a Bad Idea to anger knitters - this conversation was following SPM, aka the Yarn Harlot telling the assembled throng about Those Who Do Not Understand Knitting and Therefore Belittle It Much to the Chagrin of Others, or TWDNUKTBMCO, which is not the acronym she used but is the one I'm using because I forgot hers - that is, we are numerous and we all have very pointy sticks, easily transforming into an angry mob. Therefore, knitters = angry mob.

    Man I hate overachievers. 🙂 So just how much do you get done when you are motivated?
