So imagine stepping out side to have a smoke when you’re half lit and almost planting your bare ass foot on this.

eeeehhh. pile of dead fish on my back patio. so mysterious AND fucking gross.

this happened after a girls night out with these folks

serious fun. i love how julia looks like she’s about 2 feet tall in this pic.

hmm what else? oh i made some stuff, obviously.

a slipcover for this magazine file

and this little teddy bear… yang was kinda afraid of it.

but mostly i’ve been working on this…which is no longer secret since the roamer has somehow managed to a. get internet access & b. find me on myspace. hey babe! hope you like the blanket!
serious afghan progress:

I’ve been busy ya’ll

I know i haven’t shared some pics in a long ass time but my life has been nuts ya’ll. nuts. grape nuts.

i been knittin’ like a fiend…

klaralund sweater in noro silk garden. jaywalker socks in trekking xxl. and a huge as circular throw in lionbrand homespun. (muffin shown for scale.)

i finished up the lace leaf pullover…

it was hard to photograph…even with help from the muffin.
all it needs is a button

which should i use?

ok one more set of knits – i told you i was a fiend… i just got all this great yarn for xmas, and i was kinda excited, and …

i knat up this little shrug in one night! so cool. the
one-skein-wonder that actually took 2 1/2 skeins of yarn that i got at tuesday morning for 2.99 each. wool! $9 sweater! (to be fair the skeins were only 35yds each)
a great big 8″ x 5′ red scarf of cabley goodness i use 3 different red yarns held together and used the
irish hiking scarf pattern.

i’ve done some things besides knitting too. like move out of my einsie apartment and into my fly new house except maybe there were issues….

like gettin that muffin down and into the crate for the trip. actually moving all of my shit from the third floor hell-hole in my lil crv. and then unpacking it all. but hey! i got a new bedspread! and then my piece of shit closet collapsed. after 3 weeks the landlord fixed it and then yesterday i came home and found that (the pic on the right). its awesome.

i had dinner with these folks while they were down here for the disney vacay.

the roamer’s family. it was really nice to see them, i haven’t hung out with them all since i moved in ’03… it was sad though because of course it made me miss the roamer himself.

we had an 80’s suprise party for our friend jen at our new house, good times.

boozin’ it up. julia and me – you know i knitted those leg warmers myself. a bunch of slutty, drunk girls on a bed – i think maries bf called us ‘a single guy’s fantasy’

and last but not least my sweet jess came down to visit.

we took and 8 hour trip to st. pete (i really only should have taken about 3 or 4)

on the way back we stopped by to see jana, keith and the new puppy finn. the next day we went to animal kingdom to see some anymulls. then, a bird shat on jess – hilarious.

I’m at work…yep.

hey ya’ll long time no blog. i still don’t have internet at my house. so i can’t get any of the my pics onto my blog… it’s starting to slowly chew through my patience and i’m sure i will eventually snap and do something about it. i get paid tomorrow so the possibility of that happening this weekend is fairly more plausible than anything wonderful happening tonight.

the muffins are feeling better and they say thanks to you for sending them warm wishes through telepathy and friendly emails to their mother. they are not so happy living at the new house because they are terrified of Marie’s ginormous cat, callie. last night i let them out of the bedroom and everytime they came out callie herded them back in and then ate their food. there was much growling and showing of teeth. sunday morning at 3:30 am yin-muffin puked on the newly laundered bedspread and then monday morning as i was waking up yang-muffin did the same thing on my spare newly laudered quilt. i think it’s nerves from the callie conflict.

i’m thinking that my new landlord will come and fix my closet this weekend. for three weeks i’ve had this huge pile of all of my work clothes on the floor in my room. i’ve been talking to the fix-it guy and he has been less than helpful. when i call him i am usually on the phone for about 45 minutes because he just talks and talks. last time he told me all about his sinus infection and how he woke up that morning and his whole pillow was soaked in blood from his NOSE! eeeee. i cannot bring myself to be a bitch, because i am an avoider of conflict and he thinks i’m sooo nice. he recognized my phone number as a west virginia one and told me his 2 ex-wifes were from there and i was the nicest woman from wv that he has ever met. yeah whatever.

i worked until 11:30 monday night rendering some drawings. it sucked.

How I spent my evening

what do we have here:

spray paint on some fountain equipment. sunlight on my window. finished xmas gift with this much yarn left. only catcti survive. modern construction methods are ridiculously poor. terra cotta stucco: orlando’s staple. my knitting on a bench w/o me. bird love/shit on a lamppost. ten months of depression will do that to your house plants.

anybody else out there old school who learned to type on a typwriter and still persists to put two spaces after every sentence? just wondering.

…remember when you were young, you shone like the sun. shine on you crazy diamond. now there’s a look in your eyes like black holes in the sky…come on you target for faraway laughter come you stranger, you legend, you martyr and shine. you reached for the secret too soon you cried at the moon. shine on you crazy diamond…come on you raver, you seer of visions, come on you painter, you piper, you prisoner and shine…

Birthday Fun-Times!

Yesterday was my Birthday. It was also my girlfriend Jana’s Birthday. Here’s Jana and I on Saturday night:
The Birthday Girls
We have such cool friends! They surprised us with a limo so that we could all go out to dinner and then onto the clubs and drink all we wanted! Here is a group pic of Jana and I with all the boys in the back of the limo:
Limo Group
We thought it was funny that the boys were all squeezed into the back seat together while all the girls were all stretched out in the rest of the limo:
Boys in the Back
Last but not least, Marie. She knew I really wanted to go out downtown and she fought for me when all the married folks just wanted to stay in all night. Boring! Check out this pic of the two of us. I don’t know why it turned out like this but I think it is pretty damn cool!
Crafty & Amp

Coming soon! Last week my mama sent me so much great stuff for my Birthday. I haven’t had a chance to take pictures of it and post it.
