I cut my hair and purged an ex all in one weekend.

I can't believe I cut my hair. Ok, so I didn't cut it myself, but I asked someone to. I actually told my hair dresser that she had 5 inches to play with. Am I an idiot? Really, am I? She pulled out some razor looking thing and went to work. I swear to god, one piece looks like she took off 10 inches. I guess I wasn't clear enough. It's that 5 inches is really 5 inches thing. I'm not going to say I don't like my hair. I know it will be fine eventually, but damn, not only did she cut a … [Read more...]

Secret Pals Questions!

Here are some questions to help out my secret pal... Oh, I can't wait to "meet" you! 1. Are you a yarn snob (do you prefer high- a nd/natural fibers)? Do you avoid Red Heart and Lion Brand? Or is it all the same to you? I prefer wool. Doesn't have to be expensive, but I really like it best. Not a big fan of cotton. I like name brands, but I've knitted with Lion brand in the past, and I'm sure I will again. 2. Do you spin? Crochet? Nope. I think I'd like to learn, but I've not been brave … [Read more...]

It’s a bird, no, it’s a plane…  NO, it’s my house!

So, I haven't been in my house since I got my garage door opener. I know, I should have gone over, but I didn't. Now, it's tented, and I can't go in. Isn't that a shame. No moving anything over the weekend. Here's a funny little thing... It's been over 7 years since I had to turn services on. You know electricity, gas, phone, that sort of thing. I had everything turned on yesterday. Last night I get a phone call. It was SBC asking me how he was supposed to turn on the phone, as the … [Read more...]

Poncho Poncho…  the picture

So, here we are, a picture of me in my Poncho Poncho! Ok, so I really need a haircut, but i think the poncho turned out so nice. The only thing I haven't finished yet is the string that goes through the holes around the neck. It's also supposed to have two pom-pom's... About the pom-pom's... I'm fricking 37 years old. REALLY. Can you tell from the picture? NO, I know you can't. So my dilemna is this... Do I add the pom-pom's to the string and look even younger than I do OR do I not add … [Read more...]

Movies I don’t get to see!

The Academy Award Nominiations were announced today. I'm kinda bummed. The two pictures that were given the most nods were Million Dollar Baby and The Avaitor. Unless I go by myself, I won't be seeing either. Nikki and I go to the movies once a week. Nikki used to work at Pebble Beach. Nikki doesn't want to see any Clint Eastwood movie because she doesn't want to give her old boss any more money. Can't say that I blame her. Nikki also can't stand Leonardo. I kinda like him, even though … [Read more...]

Poncho Poncho!

I knitted a poncho for myself last week out of Rowan Big Wool. Initially, I had knit a sweater, but I hated it. Really. It was horrible. I did a poor job finishing, and it looked like crap on. The poncho is out of the Stich and Bitch handbook. It just happens to use the same yarn as I had 10 skeins of! I think that was a happy accident. I wore my poncho to work today. I just adore it. It keeps me warm, and when I have it on, I say "Poncho Poncho!", and I smile. Most of the things I … [Read more...]

Big plans, so little time…

I had such big plans for blogging last week. I really wanted to talk about the fact that John Goodman died... but now, I can't even find anything on the web about it. I think my local news channel was insane. Now, I feel insane. I also wanted to talk about how excited I was about my uber cool knitting class with Sally Melville... But it's over now. Granted, I could tell you about everything I learned, but that's not really exciting is it? Do you really want to learn about the three row … [Read more...]

My house is not my house

It is official. My mother no longer owns 1504 Wild Rose Way. My parents purchased this property in 1986. Since then, my family lived there (as a unit), my dad lived there with my sister, then my dad lived there, then we tried to sell (and couldn't), then we rented it out. Finally, my mom and I lived there from 1998 untill now. Last year, my father forced my mother and I to buy him out. It was a huge pain in the ass. But, we did. Now, this house that has been my home for so many years, … [Read more...]
