No. Not on my fries, for you. Time for me to ketchup everyone who bothers to read anymore.

I have been a bad blogger. I had all these posts and just couldn't bring myself to type them. The blahs hit me, but in typing things not kitting them. It is silly of me, I know, but I never said I wasn't a fickle bird. I should do things properly so that they all get equal attention, but I am really too tired to go through and back enter everything. So here is the condensed rundown.

In life well this starting the new job (oh mi god it is going to be LOTS of work) is giving me a run for my money. Unfortunately the "Eh" has still not left the building. It needs to catch a ride with Elvis soon though. Go "Eh"... go to Graceland.

I got a WHACK upside the head from the organisation (no reimbursement). Someone tell me why I PAY to work for them as they screw me over??? Then add in having someone I would rather not have (in the work crew) hit on me, hit on me hard, and now I must go dance on eggshells of the id and ego as I say… I love you but you are married, that is always a NO GO.

Next up was a freak out I spared you when I had the whole realization that the exams I have to take for my PhD applications (let us not talk about the applications, their HEINOUS letters of intent and fees), you know the ones I AM NOT studying for like I should… that ostrich method leaves me with my ass in the air- you do the math.

Want more? Huh?? HUH??? I got more for ya, for good measure another WHACK on the other side of the head to even it all out (thanks to incompetence by my student loans institute, the swirling sound you hear is my credit record going down the toilet, and it's not even my fault... Of course I don't get your letters when you mail them to Paris CANADA, and not Paris FRANCE like I told you...).

What does all that leave us with? Tink laying dazed on the ground with the little Tweety birds circling her head.

On the other side, where I don’t bleed money through my eyeballs- or maybe I do and this is how I try to ignore that fact, I have been knitting. I started a Clapotis and have many many questions. This one will get its own post, whenever I can get back to knitting it. It is on the back burner. Why would it be there… well because I have so many socks to knit it is not even funny.

Momalah Sock

I have knit a pair of socks for someone who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer and had a mastectomy before she starts radiation. I knit a pair of socks for someone who is about to BURST with a beautiful bouncing baby boy to wear at the hospital- instead of slippers you know. And then I bought the yarn for a pair for me...

Pile o' Socks

I am frantically knitting to finish up (the cancer socks jumped in line and I lost track of time plus thought the date was the end not middle of September) my Retro Rib socks for my Sockapaltwoza pal. I should after two-three more nights of furious knitting, she has looooooong feet, be done with them and only have to go face the evil evil post office debacle (lest I remind you how horrible I am about getting to the post office in time for these things- I have the DVD set of Father Ted which I really really want (and totally could knit to for EONS) waiting there for me and it has been 4 days and counting that I don't get there during their crap hours).

I am trying to get working on something sweater like cause this past week I have been showing nip given the dip in temperatures. The weather is gorgeous but the crispness is there and transition to Fall is starting. I have dreams of watching orange and red leaves fall (shut up about the Parisian leaves, I remember ok… we are delusioning, join me please) as I wrap up in a yummy plush sweater. I usually love this as Fall is one of my favorite seasons. I have grand delusions of me taking that study book I bought and having a nice hot chocolate (ancien SVP) as I sit in a WIFI enabled cozy café and geek out on my computer over these stupid computer adapted tests. But I am not ready for it, any of it to be honest. I am fighting change for whatever reason and well it is taking it out of me.

So that is where things stand. I will post the Sockapaltwoza socks with goodies to make up for me being a flake on Saturday (a day I MIGHT be able to make it to the post office in time!) and then I will finish up a pair of anklets that I started for myself in B-Limey baby cashmerino.

After that, well I am going to make myself order the yarn to finish the Pretty Wrappy Top, I am going to finish a bunch of stuff (why finish I mean it is the knitting I like you know :) First on the finish the fuckers list are two Daydreams I have all knit up and waiting for babies to grow out of them! After that I will take on dealing with the finishing of Fern. If I don’t drop all those once the Retro Rib socks are done to go back to the Clapotis. And then once I decide on the perfect pattern, I can start knitting me that Fall sweater.
