Random Wednesday

wm 2379That is some seriously bad news. Like bad bad. Damn.

Head exodus.

I’m sorry. I laughed.

This is so beautiful.

OK. I’d totally live here. Even though it is Delton.

Ha. Yes. Only without the actual talking. I’ll just wave and nod. From waaaaaaay over here.

I hate the Internet on April Fool’s Day.

“‘Avoiding surprises’ is a goal not always achieved. For example, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner encountered unexpected tax problems that delayed his eventual confirmation.” Unexpected tax problems. Unexpected. The man didn’t pay his taxes. In what way are the problems arising from that situation “unexpected“?

This is so cool. Anyone have a bunch of spare silk scarves lying around they don’t want any more? This is like a rich lady craft or something. ha ha

I’m so glad I have another cold a week after I got over my last one.

“Each moment is a place you’ve never been.” I like that even though it makes me feel sort of melancholy.

Wait. What? You’re making me do what?

“I feel you, Drake. We are the same. We have the same problems in a very different way.”

I don’t know who is wearing that God awful flowery perfume, but it is not helping my brain pain. Dear Lord. It’s so strong I can taste it.

Oh my gosh! I just won the gorgeous handspun skein in that knit along! My first knit along ever. My first time ever winning a knitting prize! I’m so excited! I can’t even tell you how much this brightened my day. You can see my finished Sloane Shawl on my Ravelry page.

CMS, it wouldn’t hurt you to be a little more like WordPress.

Wow, I totally forgot it was Wednesday for about an hour and a half there.

I’m pretty sure time just stopped altogether today.

I just accidentally used specifically and exactly in the same sentence by mistake.

I need those Clockwork Orange eye opener thingies.


I’ve listened to this stupid interview three times trying to catch the quote this article references and keep missing it. And it is just not that interesting. Stupid term paper.

“To Katie Roiphe, feminism had always meant freedom- but as an undergraduate at Harvard and a graduate student at Princeton, she was shocked to discover that the same movement that had once promised women a voice was now being used to tell them what they ought to say and think and feel.” YES. This is exactly the truth. This so perfectly describes my experience with feminism. Minus the shock. I wasn’t so much shocked as pissed off. I wish they’d bring Katie Roiphe to campus to speak in this series. Of course that will never ever happen.

My feelings about today are totally schizophrenic. I only got 3 hours of sleep, I’m sick, my head hurts. It’s a beautiful day and I won 480ish yards of beautiful handspun yarn. It’s hopeless.

I’ll be paralyzed with indecision about how to use the yarn too. sigh.

Noooo! You engaged! She’ll never leave now! She won’t be able to stop talking!

I’m fairly certain I’ve used that photo before.

Um, no. I’m pretty sure that’s not a legit volunteer gig.

“Those poor innocent cheaters!”

discord dischord discord dischord

Maybe I’ll just design my own shawl for that fancy yarn. Hmmmmmmm

Aww! Love. love love love

I wish I had an Instax mini and some film to play with.

That doesn’t make it true.

Blowing off studying for an hour to camp out on the floor playing with the Tiny Time Lord tipped this day squarely over to the wonderful side.

Yeahhhhhh this is that level of tired where your head is swimmy. Wheeeeee!

    Oh, dear.

    Why should he expect problems when he was who he was?

    You won? Congratulations!

    You think the quote was invented?

    You feel dissociated from reality? Or are you more bipolar, or just ambivalent?

    You’ll be able to remember the spelling if you put your heart into it.

    Oh, good. No more dissociation.
