For the first time in many years, I cried after a wrestling match last night.
Until a couple of years ago, I scoffed at food trucks. I had checked out their menus and prices. I watched their locations. And I found them to be overpriced, yuppie located, hipster food vehicles. So I never bothered to eat at one.
Then Pablo convinced me to try some french fries from a food truck at an art show. I was hungry and had to be at the show till 10 that night, so I figured why not? If he wanted to get fries, I would try them.
If you’ve read this blog at all, or know me even a little bit, you know that I knit. I knit like a fiend. I can proudly say that I’ve made 146 Cunning Hats along with countless other items for myself and others. My house has yarn stashed all over the place.
And I can’t stop.
I’ve been curious about this movie since I first hear about it’s release. Unfortunately, I missed it at the $2 theater near my house and had to wait for it to come out on DVD (thank goodness for Netflix). This weekend I finally sat down and watched it, wondering if it would be as bad as folks said.
Yes, I’m still knitting cunning hats as quickly as I can. Never fear on that account. But I am proud to say that I’ve ventured into a few other things. Most recently I finished up a very cool Fourth Doctor hat and fingerless gloves set!
Not bad, eh? I admit, after a lot of cunning hats and a ton of frantic Christmas knitting, I had to try knitting a few things for myself. :)
I haven’t even looked at the date of my last post. I just know that it’s been waaaaaay too long since I actually posted in here. I’m not making a resolution to post on a more regular basis. But I am definitely going to do my best to post at least once a week.
A lot has happened since I posted. Friends have come and gone. Life happened. One of the biggest losses in 2013 was the death of my cat, Susan. She had a second surgery in July to remove another mass and they warned me that she probably had about a year due to the cancer. Within a month, another mass had already grown to a large size (from nothing!!). Susan passed away in mid-November. At least she died with me holding her, in her own home. The loss was hard on me and especially on Ash, her adopted brother.
At the beginning of December I adopted a kitten for Ash. He has a condition called radial hypoplasia and was about 3 months old. Luckily he and Ash immediately took to each other. They love to play and will often curl up together, grooming each other. Ender’s condition doesn’t stop him from tearing around the house (including up and down the stairs) at full speed. And he jumps onto EVERYTHING. He’s almost five months now and is extremely adorable. He also has a fascination with Crash, my parrot, which I believe may only end when she finally nips him.
Movies have been seen, books have been read, shows have been watched.
I’m in the third series of Doctor Who. I’m only on “The Lazarus Experiment” mainly because I’m being dragged kicking and screaming through Martha. I can’t stand her!
What else has happened?
Oh! I got my first tattoo! It was a birthday present from Kim and I’m very happy with it. It’s three red and black diamonds on the inside of my left forearm. Yep, Harley Quinn diamonds. It was done back in July and I’m happy to say that half a year later I’m still in love with it!
Though I’d love to continue with updates, I’ll just stop here for today and pick up with regular posting later on!
It’s been awhile since I’ve actually written a post. Now that I have a job where my main function is writing ALL DAY, it’s definitely harder to find time and energy to update regularly.
But the new Les Misérables movie deserves a post of its own.
I’ll warn you now, this will contain spoilers! So if you’re not familiar with the musical or even if you are and still want to be surprised by certain things, I’d stop reading now.
