Another Boring Post Wednesday, Sep 26 2007 

No pictures yet again. I think I’m coming down with something, I’m so tired. I drag myself home from work and collapse. I managed to do a little more cross stitch, which is good.

Of course, I also managed to watch some more TV! Because that requires absolutely no energy. Hooray!

NCIS–I was less than impressed by the premiere. Not enough Ziva, and frankly the whole Director and the arms dealer storyline bored me. Plus, the fact that Jean was the guy’s daughter and Tony was undercover? Not exactly a shocking twist.

The Unit–Interesting storyline, and I’m still not sure who’s on what side, but I actually much prefer the show when they are all together as a team. Also, I feel like the wives storylines are getting dropped.

And now it’s time for me to drag myself off to work, and hopefully I’ll start to feel better. Yesterday I felt so lightheaded I almost fell out of my chair, and I could barely make it up the 2 flights of the stairs from the basement. I just have to stay awake long enough to make it through the day, and then to knitting night!

WTF Madness Monday, Sep 24 2007 

I’m almost ready to start Cherie Amour, so I’ve decided the world needs a Cherie Amour KAL. So, I started one. If you’re thinking of knitting Cherie Amour, or you’ve already started, please join! It’s a no-pressure, non-deadline sort of knitalong, so don’t feel like you have to be at any specific point in your knitting to join.

Aside from that, I haven’t gotten too much knitting done. I did get some done on Friday, as I took my lunch break at a temporary park set up in a parking spot outside my office. They had mini golf!

Park(ing) Day 1

Park(ing) Day

I then proceeded to crash early on Friday, waking up at my desk after doing a faceplant into a not-so thrilling chapter on using CSS (I caved and bought a better book that lays things out in a way that makes sense to me after that.) and creating drop-down menus.

Saturday was the worst Saturday in the history of Saturdays, and I’m not going to speak of it. Suffice to say, I was afraid to pick up my knitting, for fear I’d accidentally strangle myself or one of the cats, or perhaps take an eye out with a needle.

Today was WTF madness. I finished two WTF cross stitch pieces for co-workers, while watching Remember the Titans for probably, oh, the 5th or 6th time because I cannot turn that movie off, and the season premiere of Cold Case (Please! Bring back the messy up-do for Lilly…) which was rather anti-climactic given the season finale cliff hanger.



I still need to make at least one more, probably more. I also finished the chart for the first customized design that I’m working on. Lots of cross stitch. It’s fun, though, and I’m getting faster. Soon I’ll be able to do the WTF design in my sleep.

So Much To Update Tuesday, Aug 21 2007 

Because I got so behind.

First, the secret project I was working on:

It’s right across from the elevator as you walk into the basement at work. They mentioned needing something homey and what’s more homey than a nice cross-stitched WTF?

From what I’ve heard, people like it, so I’m happy.

Then, my co-workers and I have started knitting night! I taught co-worker J how to knit:

She’s totally on her way to becoming a yarn junkie.

Finally, I came up with a super easy, yummy pasta dinner last night and had to share:

Shrimp and scallop pasta with sundried tomato pesto. Super quick and easy for a weeknight, and really yummy with a glass of red wine. If you’re really energetic, some garlic bread and a salad would go perfectly.
