Knit, Purl....

Today is a knitting day as oppossed to a procrastinating about knitting yet getting nothing done, day.

By some small miracle I may even manage to get a few pictures posted today.

Productivity...the HORRORS!! actual picture!

Crafticon at Modern Times in S.F.

This is a shameless plug for a spiffy little crafty event at an equally spiffy bookstore in San Francisco.

Pack up your crafty-bag and come play at the bookstore on Saturday.

Me and my knitting will be lurking about.

A WHAT Passport??

Oh we go.

The Safe Sex Passport

Nice idea...until the person who has said "Clean" passport goes out and has sex.

After that, it is another useless piece of junk in a person's wallet.

How do you know that person wasn't swinging through the NSA ads on Craigslist the same night after they got tested?

You don't.

The simple facts of life are that you are taking a risk each and every time you have sex, period.

Clowns trying to sell security where it doesn't exist annoy me to no end.

Speaking of Craigslist, ever loiter in the personals ads?
Ever notice that EVERYONE has a clean bill of health?
Believe it?

I didn't think so.

Think the ads are a trip...check out the forums.
If you want to know how to totally destroy a good relationship you will find some great advise on the Marriage & LTR Forum.
Hang out there very long and you'll be in the Divorce Forum next.
After you go crazy the Psychology Forum will shred any resemblence of self esteem you have left.

Maybe you should save yourself the pain and just go knit something instead.

Yarn...the only balls I trust.

Some days just make me feel a little dumber than others.

This is a "Stupid" day.

It is one of those days when I have a hard time just muddling through one minute to the next while still remembering to breathe.

Knitting patterns may as well be written in Hindi today.

I AM together enough to figure out what 11% of $7.5 billion is, though.
Citigroup just got a loan for that amount.
That is $8,500,000 in case you wondered.
And you thought your student loan was bad!

This is the same bank that won't give me a credit card because they think I am a credit risk.
That strikes me as funny in a really sick kind of way.
I am a credit risk because I have actually PAID for things as I have meandered through life.
Apparently you get good credit by not actually paying for a thing up front but by paying for it with someone else's money and then taking your sweet time paying them back.

I am a dolt.

Jumbo Balls

Circuit City execs must have a set of Jumbo Balls.

I don't shop there because I don't spend my money with people that lay off their employees simply so they can hire cheaper ones.

I think that kind of business is BAD business, and will NEVER support it.

That being takes a HUGE set for those people to actually court the same ex-employees that they blatantly screwed to try to get KNOWLEDGEABLE SALES HELP for the holidays.

Are they high?

I wonder how many ex-employees will take them up on their oh-so generous offer?

To Cache or Not to Cache?

It has been awhile since I went Geocaching, but I always seem to come back to it.
It is the thrill of the hunt...and knowing that there are hidden treasures all over the place that always brings me back.
You just never know what might be hiding in the next bush or crevice but to a geocacher, the possibilities are endless.
The humble Altiods tin and a hearty magnet can make for a decent cache big enough for tiny trinkets.
The treasure thing is what made me turn away from caching for awhile.
Would it kill cachers to go to the party store and pick up a few goodies now and then?
It really doesn't take much, but it does make the game a lot more fun when caches have actually GOODIES in them as oppossed to piles of geotrash and just plain old crud.
Stickers, beads, little toys, Geocoins, pins...all cheap cool stuff for caches.
Personally, I LOVE Sigitems because they can be anything.

I have turned a few people onto Geocaching because it is fun, and it will take a person to places that they may not ever know were there, which is half of the "treasure" in the first place.
The problem was that the last person I got into the sport REALLY got into it, but wasn't much for subtlety and this is a sport that requires a certain amount of stealth.
Just because I know there is a magnetic key holder stuck to the bottom of that bench doesn't mean I should be blatantly obvious about grabbing it, you know?
One has to be somewhat sly about it.
Hence, some caches are so well hidden that I don't find them while some of them may as well be handed to me by a tap-dancing gnome wearing a red hat with a jingley-bell.
It is a great sport for the solitary, but taking a horde of people on a geocaching trek can be a bit daunting to say the least.
Most people just talk too much and observe too little.

I am not a super-cacher by any means but I do enjoy it.
I do need to take more pictures.

My ex was more of a super-cacher, which kind of took the joy out of it for me.
I don't really want to hit 7 caches in one day if I am rushed about doing it.
Being rushed in general annoys me.
All in all, I am just not in that big of a hurry.
I LIKE meandering about, sniffing the flowers and watching the world go by.
Hmmmm....sniffing the flowers...I wonder if there's a cache in the local rose garden?

I Can Haz Knitting?

Hey! I was working on that!

New Blog!

How many blogs does one person really need anyway?

Truth be told, I am pretty Myspaced out.

Most of my time is spent reading, knitting and playing games but I do tend to babble on a bit here and there.

Sooner or later I will figure out how to add music links onto this bad boy and then we'll be off to the races.
Until then...I have a few things to figure out and some knitting to attend to.

Happy Trails!
