Plan for today :

Haaaaarrrrrrrdcore D&D planning. So much shit I need to know/do.

catch up on Teevee (which can be done while finishing the knitting.

paaaartay.

been feeling awfully girly lately - buying makeup, one of those sonic face-scrubber things (which is awesome, let me tell you) and so on. Crazy times, man.

My knitting mojo finally returned! I spent 20 minutes perusing the knitting section at the library and then discovered that they have Cookie A's book on socks! I may have squealed aloud and snatched it up. Now I am happily working away on the Shipwreck shawl again.

Went to the farmer's market in plano and I came home with massive amounts of veggies - squashes and tomatoes and peppers in particular.

Getting an early start on dinner - making gyudon, so I've already got the rice cooker going. Will likely add some peppers and squash to the mix. Not traditional, but who cares! Not me! :D And making extra rice so I can make onigiri for lunch tomorrow. Maybe. Or maybe I'll just mix it with veggies and put eggs on top. Who knows! Not me! :D

So I've been reading kindle books on my iphone. This has been an effective test for if I want an actual kindle. It is DAMN handy to be able to read whatever, whenever, whilst I am out and about in the world. Since I am currently knitting a lace shawl, it requires too much brain to do on a train when I need to be able to just stop that second so I can get off, having something to read always with me is nice.

Granted, I AM a gadget whore, and want a kindle just for the sheer niftiness of it.

Lace shawl: Currently working on a Shipwreck, in Brooks Farm yarn. ( Ravelry Link ) On the second section on lace. Not hard, but I do have to pay attention.

Apartment search is now a decision between 2 complexes - one the floorplans are kind of boring and generic, but cheap. The other is a better floorplan, but more expensive.  They're about the same in size.  I do have to say the living rooms are very poorly designed in the Former complex. All these weird angles.

It has been raining/rainy for days. While I'm sure the rain is good for us, I'm feeling HELLA blah. Headaches too.  I have been catching up on my sleep though since it never really gets light in the bedroom on days like this so I have no indication the sun has risen other than the clock.

Been playing Pokemon off and on. I love my lineup but I freely admit I play for the cute, not the building a badass team.

Right, I do believe it's bedtime. Work tomorrow for the first time this week, boss-lady has been very busy with some charity fashion show she was sort of drafted for, so I haven't gone in this week. Booo lack of money.

Plan for this weekend:
  • Remain vitamin and medicated up. Gotta kick whatever this is's ass.
  • Go on grocery run which may necessitate a run to the Chinese megagrocery if the Japanese store has no kamabuko or aburaage or hijiki seaweed (I is making udon and homemade inarizushi, the canned stuff is too sweet)
  • finish the Zunesock, but the pocket for headphones can wait if necessary.
  • work on Noro Striped Scarf (I have been infected too. fleeeee for your liiiives. Also I am really loving Silk Garden.)
  • sleep. lots oif it.
  • cook at least once, if not twice, actual meals.
  • make it to 68 and bound gleefully for Northrend.

Backup woes solved - Dave ended up buying new HDDs so I can just install vista on one of this old HDD and thus save me the cleaning up woes. I will still likely end up formatting my current C drive, just because. Now if I can just wrangle more memory and a new monitor I will be the happiest camper.

My japanese pattern book and yarn came today. Woo!

Doctor appointment Monday. While I am not looking forward to it because of the sticking that will take place (they have to do bloodwork) I'm hoping the weight loss at least will make them happy, and maybe I won't have to change my blood pressure meds (since likely whatever it will be will be not as inexpensive). Also I hope my doc will let me switch my BC meds without an exam.

Woke up uncommonly early today. I think I will watch some TV before doing anything useful. Do not like waking up at 8 and being unable to go back to sleep.

Ordered a tawashi book and some antibacterial yarn from etsy. Oh Japan, you so crazy.

Still want to buy a crapton of the hemp yarn and make things with it. Namely a clapotis, but I could settle for a hat and maybe like, a tank top or something.

man. I am not allowed to ponder things when I have time and creative mojo. I was just thinking of making another relatively full-sized clapotis, with hemp yarn. Maaaagh. Make it stop! (Oddly enough it wouldn't be much more expensive than using something from JOAnn's, but why am I contemplating knitting it again?)

Whee, actually managed to score a couple shirts from threadless during the sale (sadly I am never in time to get pillow fight when it is in stock). Hooray new clothes!!

Having an odd yarn-based slump, creatively speaking. Maybe I'll stick to cross stitch for the time being. Hm.

It has, I shit thee not, rained all goddamn day. I heard American Airlines cancelled all flights into and out of DFW. I think it said some 700 flights were affected. Mucho sucko.

Thinking of playing FF12 again. It's too bad it's not widescreen, but oh well.

(Also I want to kill Will. I've had a Decemberists song stuck in my head for days and I don't usually even like their stuff.)

Got:

  • New silverware

  • various and sundry kitchen implements

  • tv-bench

  • side table

  • Huge damn tv. :D DLP. :D (see tv bench)

  • Professor Layton and the Curious Village My god, I spent 3 hours playing earlier and did not notice the time passing. It makes my brain hurt on occasion. Game = Brain age with a plot



Not to mention the crochet things I'm working on, another knit/felted purse, AND a cross-stitch chart from the Subversive Cross Stitch book (Fuck the Stupid Shit).

And I have movies to watch. Eee, hehehe.

Now! To wait to put a fresh load of laundry in! Meantimes I will eat lunch! hooray!

My crafting goes in phases - I'll be on a huge knitting binge for months and months, never touch the crochet hooks unless it's picking up dropped stitches. And then, like some tiny person in the yarn-focused portion of my brain flips a switch and it's all crochet all the time!

This time I think it's I've hit the point where I am so unbelieveably sick of cold weather and having to wear socks and coats that I refuse to work on warm-making things. And since most of what I crochet is either amigurumi or bags, with the occasional home-decor bits thrown in, it is what I gravitate to when that period hits. So! I have a nice pattern for a lacy crochet shrug to wear with my tanktops when indoors so I am not on occasion freezing. I have a book of amigurumi patterns. And my knitting will just have to languish a while.

And I got the Subversive Cross Stitch book on a whim. Hehehe.

Today has been a good day for finishing. Last week I was digging through my yarn stash and I came across an incomplete Booga Bag. The base and a couple of the 5-row stripes were done, so I pulled it out and resoved to finish it off. Day before yesterday I actually started working on it as something mindless to do, and now it is done and felted and drying on a couple of books wrapped in plastic bags. Also finished a crochet doily I'd been working on, hooray! Now I'm gonna start on a phone-holder-case-thingy.

Got a bunch of yarn yesterday with my birthday money to make MORE stuff, always good.

I would also like to point out how much I love the mp3 section on Amazon. Dear god the joy I have found there! Thankee [livejournal.com profile] selie for the gift certificate! It has been put to good use procuring the odd stuff I like to listen to! (I found another artist that does modern-style Tsugaru-Shamisen music! YAY!)
