excitement, adventure

Everyone is doing so much exciting stuff!
You got your promotion! Karida got her promotion! The husband got his career-launching internship! Nick met Norman Mailer!(?) Aaaaaaaaaaaaaand, I bet you've already heard, but our buddy KT got into culinary school. She starts in March! This is awesome. I am really so extremely excited for all my friends. I am envious too, of course. I really have to make some stuff happen in the career department, and soon. Cause, you know. What I am doing is pretty good, but I would be a lot happier if I felt like I knew where I would be in, say, 6 months. Plans, dreams, ambitions, etc.

I am playing the waiting game.

To quote Homer J: "the waiting game sucks. Let's play Hungry Hungry Hippos."

Knitting progress report! Last night I added an inch to the Steve sweater, and then I noticed what looked suspiciously like an accidental yarn over a few rows back. So rather than investigate it, I stopped knitting and started giving my full attention to the TV. Then today, I knitted about 1 row on Tubey before I had to start doing my stupid job. I bet I will get some knitting done tonight because I am having dinner with some knitters, and we love to whip it out in public.

Cat update: Honey is so fat that when he sits around the house, he really sits around the house. Also, he is afraid, and I mean petrified, of Husband's down jacket. He hates the sound it makes. And it makes the Husband look so much bigger that Honey isn't sure it is him. He thinks it might be a giant intruder who makes scary sounds.

I can't wait to see some photos of your Clapitos!

Bruuuuce! I found your blog. I had fun whipping it out in public tonight (and on stage too)! Can't wait to read more entries!

so I am posting again, because your blog f*cking rocks. Brax, I haven't met you yet, but I am looking forward to it someday. Anyway I have a suggestion for your baby shower gift. The "One Skein" baby Kimono. Really easy and impressive too. I used Cascade chunky baby alpaca. Really soft too and I know someone who could get you a discount. ;) Also, I love that you say washrags. I feel so at home...

Oh sure. Ellie comments on YOUR blog, but not mine. Bitch.

I'm sure we will someday meet. I just ordered "One Skein," how uncanny! Also, what you don't know about me is that I actually have to restrain myself from saying "warshrag."
