List Day

  • Gas is at $1.93 per gallon today
  • I either forgot to set the alarm or turned it off this morning, but either way, we was late
  • This bay is popular, people walk in and talk over the wall to the people on the other side... seriously, WTF
  • I'm about six rounds from finishing the instep on the sock
  • And no, the super secret pass phrase is not because Knittech said so
  • Okay, that .gif is just wrong (Post 20)
  • You know you can organize a potluck anytime you want to, you don't have to wait for me to do it
  • Good thing I called him over to proof read the email because I would have started a war
  • My day is mostly over. Mostly
  • Have a good evening

Drive By

Today is my dad's birthday. I'm not sure how old he is but I think he's 79. Does that make me a bad daughter? Tonight the girls and I will be meeting up with him for a dinner. I know he would like a blue vest, but I don't have time to knit him one by tonight. Plus I'm at work right now, so they'd frown at me knitting instead of working. They're funny like that.

While at knitting on Saturday I didn't think to bring a tape measure, so I grabbed Perky's phone and used it. Turns out her phone is six and half inches long - including the case. Now I can start knitting the instep.

List Day

  • Gas is at $1.98 per gallon
  • Ruby has a vet visit today
  • I hate bureaucracy
  • Grilltech is being mean to me
  • Odd, Excel just shut down on me
  • Over heard from the other bay, Monday is clothing optional
  • The day is half over, hopefully the second half will be as fast as the first half
  • Bleh training. I wish I had my knitting with me
  • Seriously.... get a set of headphones, they're cheap. Oh wait, so are you
  • I warned them this was going to happen, now they're screaming we need more bodies


Today, I moved my desk. It took me about an hour and half to do. The move itself was only 30 minutes, but getting the system set up and running right. Still working on it. The biggest change? The main system I use is on the left side. I don't know how I did it, but I can't get the main chat window to open. Plus the new system is slow. I don't mean, slow, but SLOW. Thankfully I only rarely use that one.

Anyway, I've now got a cubemate. It's someone I've sat with before, so its not a big deal. I'll need to remember to keep the talking to myself down to a minimum. Okay, second time today I've walked past my new row. Change is good. I keep telling myself that, but so far, it's not taking. On the plus side, my new cubemate won't be helping himself to a bunch of my stuff.

I've got about an inch, maybe an inch and a half done on Grilltech's new sock. The blue isn't really standing out, so all I see is black on them.

Down the street on a cloudy winter day.

A quick and easy washcloth.

First shipment of a sock of the month club. Grilltech got me a great Christmas present.

First sock finished, it's for me.

Last year, I made a friend a pair of socks. A couple of weeks ago, he handed them back with an issue. I need to simply kitchener it closed, but I haven't gotten around to it yet. Simply being lazy.
