More of the Same and Something Else

January 3, 2009

It sure doesn’t feel like a Friday, and I mean that, probably because we haven’t had school for ages and school days help distinguish the days from each other.  They help make sure the days of the week don’t all mold together into one great big clay day in the kiln, which they are doing as of late.

Today I knit more, like yesterday, while watching a movie on On Demand called Mermaid, which is really sad and based on a true story, except the mother annoyed me so much that it was kind of ruined.

I only knit one fingerless glove, so today probably couldn’t even be considered a day of knitting.  I’m about to begin the stocking cap I’ve waited so long to make, in Ravenclaw movie colors.  Speaking of Ravenclaws, I still haven’t made any more progress with the Ravenclaw scarf I’ve been knitting in book colors, completely because I still need to get some more blue yarn and I’m currently on that stripe color.

I woke up in the middle of the night last night to the sound of the ceiling fan spinning round and round.  I was sleeping in the sunroom last night on a couch, along with Emma on the other couch next to me, because I wanted to stay up and watch more Twilight Zone and finish the hat for Lydia, not Emma, because it ended up being too small for her, which I did, by the way, if this sentence makes any sense at all.  The ceiling fan gave me an enormous headache, anyway, and after lying there  not being able to get to sleep for quite some time I gave up and went to my own bed, where I fell asleep rather quickly.  The end.

So, my stats have been steadily declining, I’m guessing because many of my friends who read this continuously are bandies, and therefore currently in Tennessee doing something or another.

Well, as I said, I’m about to start a stocking cap, so farewell.  Best wishes!

The Twilight Zone

January 2, 2009

I’d never seen it before today, the marathon for the 50th anniversary, and now I see what all of the fuss was about.  It is amazing.  I’ve been watching it for hours and hours.

I also knitted Emma a blueish purplish hat and made brown sugar candies, but those are second rate compared to this marvelous television show.

It’s super super late and I have more of it to watch and then I’m going straight to sleep, so good night and happy new year.

I got some things done today but, still, no writing.

November 26, 2008

I baked two pecan pies for Thanksgiving and have one layer more to go for the jellos I’m making for tomorrow.

I watched the two episodes of The Office that I hadn’t seen yet and now I’m watching a movie with Nicholas Cage in it, titled It Could Happen to You.

Words cannot describe how surprised I was when my brother invited me to go to the movies to see Twilight tonight with him and his girlfriend.  The books are ridiculously awful and overrated, but I’m thinking the movie will be better.

Oh, also, I’m knitting a neato hat and I really want to get back to that and watching the movie, so goodbye.

Have a happy Thanksgiving, friendly beings!

Today I knit myself a hat.

October 5, 2008

It is grey at the bottom, and lots of colors of stripes at the top.  I would take a picture, but I do not feel like it.  Excuses, excuses.

What else did I do?  Looked at more pictures of cardigans, played with moon sand.  Basically nothing.

I have lots of things to do but I did nothing.

I need to do my AP Euro outline.  Not due until Friday or after, but I like to get it done ahead of time.  I also need to start and finish my To Kill a Mockingbird project, which is due next Monday.  And find a homecoming dress, and finish the pair of socks, and… lots of things.  I also need to get my bangs trimmed and get new glasses.  Oh well.  It is nice to not worry about anything every once in a while.  Too bad I have been doing it more than that.

Then again, as I always tell myself, none of this will matter in a year or two or three.


Yellow Beret (quite possibly the shortest title ever)

July 20, 2008

Pretty much the only reason I am posting something is because I finished a knitting project and I am tremendously proud of it.  The project?  A yellow beret.  Amazingly, my mother allowed me to use some of her yarn (she has a huge stash but is very protective of it; having close to no money, I cannot afford to buy my own nice yarn and am forced to use acrylic, which is okay but boring… and kind of itchy): Malabrigo in cadmium.

I started the hat yesterday and finished it today (a very quick project, but that could just be because I knit all day long today and yesterday).

I knit while watching movies.  Unfortunately, we do not have many, but I made do with movies I had not seen or had not seen in awhile.  That included:

Spiderman 1 and 2

The Village

Pirates of the Caribbean 3

Part of Helvetica (on Netflix Instant Movies… I am going to finish watching that once I am done with this post)

…and I realized how much I love movies.  I love them so much.  If somebody asks me what I like to do in my spare time, I can now say I like to read, knit, AND watch movies.  Quite an accomplishment, having three things to say.

Anyway, here are a few pictures of my beret, which I love so much… I wish it were colder outside so I would be able to wear it without getting heatstroke.

So there you have it, my favorite knitted object ever of the ones I have made.  I am so happy.

Quick recap of Wednesday Club of last week, before I go: Laura and I were the only ones there.  We found a British candy at Giant, WINE GUMS (!!!!!), and had those along with Snapple (!!!!!).  It was excellent.

Goodbye now.  Take care.

Birthdays and Words and Mishmash

April 21, 2008

I am writing this now just in case I do not have a chance later, what with my sister’s birthday being today and all. Plus, I am going to be reading King Dork for a while and I wanted to get my daily post out of the way.

By the way, on the back of King Dork there are reviews from other authors. One of those reviews was from the amazingly jokes, infamous John Green!

Today’s school day was as lonely as ever, due to the fact that the bandies and chorus peeps are still in Disney World. They will be arriving late tonight.

I finished my purple hat last night and added a lime and darker green colored pompom to the top of it. I am wearing it right now and am nice and toasty. Not to mention that I keep reaching up to feel the nice, soft, poke-able pompom.

Here is a picture:

It was raining again today, luckily. I had a chance to make practical use of my red and white umbrella.

The letter of the day is ‘V,’ meaning that the word of the day is varia, meaning ‘miscellany.’ The holidays are Kindergarten Day and some other day I cannot remember.

Upon Clara’s choice, we are going to Golden Corral for dinner.

Eight days until my birthday.

Farewell, friendly beings and otherwise.
