SP8 Mini questionnaire

1. What is your favorite season?
I would have to say I like spring and fall. I like spring because of the new flowers and the temperature. I like fall because of the smell of burning leafs and the temperature.

2. Where is or would be your favorite place in the world to take a vacation?
I like London, England. I like it because of the history and the contemporary lifestyle.

3. If you could have any job in the world and not worry about finances (everything would be taken care of), which means you'd be doing something you actually like, what would it be?
I think that I would like to try a bunch of things. I would like to try acting, being a professional traveler, working with animals...possibly in a rescue type capacity.

4. What is your favorite project to knit or crochet?
I like to knit things for other people. I like to see their faces as they receive the gift. But for something more specific, I would say purses/bags.

5. What is your favorite food - whether it be a main dish, dessert, snack, whatever?
I like teriaki chicken. YUM! I also like a cookie called scotcheroo's, which is like a rice crispy type treat...only better and with peanut butter. Yummy.

6. What is your favorite way to relax and unwind?
I usually like to watch tv or a movie. I usually am always in front of the tv doing something...on the 'net, reading (yes I read with the tv on), knitting. I seem to need the noise.

The First Pair of Socks

The first pair of socks are complete! YEAH! I finished the second sock on Monday. The yarn matched up until the toe, where this is a blue stripe instead of a green stripe. How cool is that?

I am now currently working on the sock that I started Memorial Day weekend. I am knitting the gusset decreases. Pretty soon I will be finished with this sock.

I saw a movie on Monday. I saw The Devil Wears Prada. It was kinda cute. I am glad that I did not pay full price for the movie. I decided to get popcorn and a soda, and this was twice a more as the movie. HOLY COW! Well I guess it was my lunch, but still about 20 bucks to see a movie. WOW.

If anyone reads this, have a good day!

Work Week

Wow the work week has been long! I am glad that it is almost over. I get to leave work at 1 on Thursday. YES!!!!! :) Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday I worked open to close. It is only 10.5 hours each day, so it was ok. I got through it. It is not as bad as the last job I had, which I worked 16 hours one day.

As for the socks class.....It was really cool. I am almost finished with my first sock. I have to decrease the toe and I will be pretty much finished. I would have finished, but I am really tired this week for some reason.

ANGER!!!!!! I am very angry that Bones is not on AGAIN tonight. I got into this show late in the season, and would have liked to see the re-runs of the first episodes. Well, I guess FOX decided to show So You Think You Can Dance. I would rather have seen Bones, but this is better than America's Got Talent crap.

Not AGAIN!!!!???!!!!

I guess this is the year for apartment problems. I just discovered that my AC is leaking water into my apartment. I found this out looking for another movie to watch at 1:15 in the morning. I was tired of watching "Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy" and decided to look at the stash that I have in the holder by the AC unit. Probably a good thing that I found this out at some point. I just hope that this doesn't take as long to fix as the bathroom problems I had in April!!! It was probably a good thing that I had started to clean my apartment earlier in the evening.

So I decided on another movie that I am not sure if I want to watch. I watched "Anchorman" 3 or 4 times since Saturday. Tonight (or should I say, this morning) I decided on "The Prince and Me". I have watched this MANY times a couple of months ago. Before Saturday, I had watched "Underworld: Evolution" about a million times since the beginning of June.

On to knitting news. I finished my homework for the sock class. I think that I knitted some of it incorrectly. Oh well, that is what class is for, gaining new techniques and honing the skills.

Seems like the storms have started again. So far it is not too crazy. Just lightening and a bit of thunder. I don't think that the rain started yet. At least my sinuses are not going wacko like they were Saturday and Sunday.

Well, I should try to get some sleep sometime tonight.
