some things going on with me:I'm wearing Emily's skirt.
Okay, I've done this before, but not in awhile. I need to do laundry like whoa (everyone should use that phrase. and by everyone, i mean no one.), and also, I'm sick of my clothes (most of them are in Ohio).I started a new blog.
*gasp* It's for hiking purposes, and both Andy and I will have access to it...and both
of us will update it. When we get the chance, of course. You do realize that we're going hiking, right? Away from computers/technology/masses of people? (Just reminding myself, mostly.) Anyway, if you *really* love me ...i'll give you a moment to consider that... .... .... ...then you'll subscribe to the RSS feed so you'll know *rightaway* when we update. You should know what the hell I'm talking about, but if you don't, go to the blog page, click on the blue "RSS" all the way to the right of the url, um, space, and bookmark that "feed://" link. If this is news to you, you've been missing out. Welcome to the internet.I just had a lot of coffee.
No, not so unusual, but I did it at Starbucks, which is a little different (home is good). Anyway, I totally embarrassed myself by exclaiming "HI!!!" to a cute little old professor who gave me a little smile as he walked by my table...a professor I don't know at all. My bad.I fly to Atlanta in...eleven days.
If you're so ignorant as to not understand why I'm flying to Atlanta, or why this is a big deal, follow that blog link up there. Also, hi, I'm Lauren. Nice to meet you.I didn't go to lab today.
That's right, my senior thesis is DUE on Monday, and I didn't go to lab to work on it. I'm rebelling, and mainly, waiting for Tim to edit the damn thing. Still, even though it's his fault, I imagine I'll get a grumpy email tomorrow morning asking me why I didn't come spend four hours staring at the essay that I can't edit any more.I'm knitting sleeves, and I'm so not into it.
Yeah, Rogue (the sweater, you all constantly look at my flickr stream right? No? You should.
) is close, but she needs sleeves. They're dull, but this thing was just not meant to be a vest. I'm up past the exciting cable part, but even that was dull after finishing that hood. Still, as SEKSY as Kelsey may think it is, it just wasn't meant to be.I ordered yarn yesterday. Twice.
The first time was totally forgivable, as I can't fight it any longer and I really do need a seventh skein for the sweater. At $6.50 a pop, it's not too painful. But, see, the thing is, shipping from that site
is a flat $5. And they've got some amazing sock yarn
. (Yes, that's three separate links. No, I didn't buy some of each.) Particularly, how could I resist something that's called "Jungle Stripe" (the AT is kinda jungly, right?) and looks like this
? Yeah. Now you understand. But, yes, I did say twice, didn't I. So, this one I blame on sheer enabling of the uber-talented yarn dyer
, who's recently been pimping her shit, and with good reason...check out those colors!
Anyway, there's this one, it's really pretty, and it's called...are you ready??...scarecrow! (Don't get it? Go click on that hiking blog link.) I couldn't help myself. It's pretty, it's *nice*, it's SOLD OUT already, and I like making socks. A lot. So there.
Hope you enjoyed the pictureless (do I get some credit for links?) update, there's just not many exciting images to share at the moment. Don't you worry, a few weeks from now, I'll have plenty.
