Random Randomness

In honor of it being Wednesday, which I hear is random - from many a source, but think that MamaCate might have started it, but I'm not sure - I am declaring today a random day. There will be more of these considering that I frequently have days where I lose my grip of the English language altogether and can't get things out right on paper - or blogger, as the case may be. So here is my ordered list update of life's events lately. I'll try to keep knitting stuff at the top so if you're bored you can quickly move on with your life when the knitting content diminishes - as it most definately will.

edited: - Okay so I failed miserably at keeping knitting together. Oops.

Ordered list of not orderly things:
  • I got through the lace last night. That last row seemed to take forever, but it might have had something to do with the fabulousness that is House. By that I mean the television show. I managed to knit four rounds of stockinette. I felt like it was going quickly, and as soon as my gauge evens out after the lace, it will go much quicker.
  • Our actual house is not so fabulous right now. We are having our enormous crawl space worked on, and the contractors intelligence is questionable at best. I feel bad for Boyfriend because he has worked his tail off to help these guys move it along, and in turn they have done their part wrong, aren't answering phone calls, are breaking things, and didn't finish on time. Stupid Heads.
  • Stephanie both scared the crap out of me and made me feel better today. She has a ticker on her blog that counts down the days until the Olympics are over, but that's not what upset me. What got me is the percentage of how much time is passed. We're over 30% already. Eeep! However, she seems to be having the same issues of knitting, tinking, reknitting that I'm having - only her project is really freaking hard, and my issue is the inability to count to 9 correctly.
  • My office is so weird. Monday it smelled like drywall and plaster - yet no work was being done, this morning it smelled like Ode de Dorritos - yet no one had any, and this afternoon the hall smells like my college dorm. Talk about random.
  • Apparently 1-800-FLOWERS sells more than flowers. Witness this:
No wonder the box was bouncing all over the couch when we got it. Silly cat.
  • I'm getting more annoyed with stupid drivers lately. Yes, I know it snowed on Sunday, but guess what? It's not snowing anymore. Not only that, it's over 50 degrees, I promise you that shiny stuff on the ground is not black ice.
  • I'm thinking about getting this pattern. I've heard good things about Wendy's patterns, and to be honest, this is the first one I've really liked. If all goes well with the cami, this might be my first bigger garment, instead of the hourglass sweater. What do you think? Has anyone used one of her patterns before?
  • I must be having some odd subconcious issue with belongings today. I have attempted to leave my wallet in the parking lot of Target, lose my scarf in the lobby of the building, leave my keys in the car - all in the same lunch hour.
  • I am having the weirdest thing going on in my ear. It's like something in there is twitching and when it does it makes this little noise. I've had twitching in my eyelid before due to stress and lack of nutrients, but never in my ear. It's not painful, but it's getting real old. At least when it happens in my eye it doesn't mess with my vision. The ear twitching feels funny and makes a sound. Argh!
  • Sandy blogged about having issues with Tuesdays. I have always had problems with Tuesdays! My fish died on a Tuesday, my ex broke up with me on Tuesday, it's just always been a bad day. It feels good to know someone else has issues with it and that the universe is not just picking on me.
  • I think I have nothing else to say, but I know there's something in the back of my mind. As soon as I hit publish on this post I will may remember it and have to edit. I don't think there's a single post I haven't had to go back and edit due to my complete lack of short term memory. I think I was a really good goldfish in a past life and got reincarnated a little too far up the food chain. This explains a lot.
  • The end (if there ends up being a line item after this, you know why)


  • Aw, why can't I get a cat sent to me? :) Your kitty's so cute! I can't believe you're doing lace for the challenge! Kudos! And don't let the ticker psyche you out - I figured out that I'll have 20% left of my knitting time that last weekend - time enough to cram :)

  • Hi Jes,

    Thank you for visiting my blog. You should definitely check out the French Girl stuff. I talked to the designer last week, and she will have her spring/summer stuff out soon. You can find her current patterns at
