Let's Do The Time Warp Again

So ummm... I guess I should start off by saying I live on a Latin clock and yeah... ummm time it warps around me like I was the star of Rocky Horror Picture Show. But one thing I am always as true as sunshine to my word... sooner or later :)

Thus without further ado I give you a photo of me in Salina! (taken by a friend)Yes I finished a sweater (well mostly didn't put the cuffs on cause I couldn't be bothered and it looked ok without it) but don't mind the helmet head, I look horrible. Despite it not being the exact fit I expected (blocked more than anticipated as I was frightened it would be too tight, opposite issue now... should have stuck with my XS gut) I have worn it out, riding a Vespa no less :) I need to try and get me some details together on it so look for the post to be edited soon.


Why haven't I posted... well cause things have gone like Gonzo on a rollercoaster and I am living like Animal. I don't even want to begin to get into everything (except to say that one of the positive ones looks like it will have me going to NYC and Seattle over the holidays) but suffice to say that I have been swinging as if I was Tarzan, only me not Jane. From feeling like my head was stuffed in a toilet and flushed to cautiously optimistic to just plain tired and wanting time to fly past me. I have run the gamut. Now where the fuck is my medal :)

So in that spirit I give you a photo of another old FO
