Hey everybody. It's been quite a while since I posted anything. It isn't that nothing has been going on in my life. It's just that I get distracted very easily. I think that I suffer from A.D..hey look, a chicken.
Well it was about a year ago when I posted last. I am getting ready for Pennsic now as I was then. There seems to be so much to do and so little time. I hope this Pennsic goes better than last year. My leg is mostly healed up from the break. It still is a bit stiff and sore at times...and I am a little afraid of falling and breaking it again. But I still plan on going and having fun, and I hope to fight some too.
Well it's the week before Pennsic and most of the major projects are done thanks to Evie helping me a lot. She either did my projects or helped me do them or encouraged me to stay on task. Thank you for helping me.
Just a couple little things to wrap up this weekend and start the packing/loading.
Mother's day: Sit down dinner with steak.
Father's day: Picnic with hot dogs.
Yup...it was THAT kind of day.
This is actually the first project I knitted and felted. Sorry it is inside out. I'll have to take another pic and replace it. It comes in handy at Pennsic. It is the perfect size to put the Pennsic class list book in. It also works good for merchanting. I hate it when merchants give you a plastic bag for your purchases.
I also use it for my knitting projects. It's big enought to hold and entire sweater, pattern, yarn, needles, and sundries.
Let me know if you like me sharing my projects or if I am waisting my time.
Finally getting around to posting some pics. Here are my first knit socks.
The first thing you probably know about me is that I take myself WAY too seriously. This is something i'm trying to change hence my sharing of what happened today.
The second thing you probably know about me is that I'm color blind. Well partially anyway.
The thing you don't know is what happened today. Have you ever heard of someone wearing two mismatched socks. I'm sure that would be pretty embarrassing. What I did tops that by a lot. It was a long day at work...but I felt good by the end of the day because I was able to get a lot finish. I ended up working late and finally it was time to go home. I figured one quick stop at the bathroom would be in order before the trip home. Well...while I was sitting there contemplating what I was going to do this evening, I happened to look down at my shoes. I stared in disbelief for several seconds. I had on two different color shoes... one brown and one black. I was wondering how I didn't notice they didn't feel different, then I thought, 'huh...I've got a pair just like this at home' and i just started laughing and laughing. I haven't laughed that hard since I told everyone my pig story at Pennsic. I was almost crying. Oh, speaking Pennsic, I have to go pre-reg. Then on the walk back to my desk, I noticed I was limping a little and was wondering why I was limping and then I realized it was because there is a slight difference in the thickness of the soles on my shoes and I started laughing again. Oh my, what a dork. Hope I cheered you up a bit.
Well yesterday was my bday and since it fell on a Friday, I am making it into a bday weekend. Becca surprised me with a party last night and my 'rents had us over to their place tonight. I have to admit it...I like presents. I don't mean as in...'gee, thanks for the gift'...I mean, I really like present a lot. I expecially like to get think unexpectedly in the mail. Well, yesterday and today were pretty full days...I have to think of something to do tomorrow...besides laundry and dishes I mean.
It's funny that I don't journal more...I think that anyone reading this has to think I am boring. I do a lot of fun exciting stuff, I just do not ever know what to say about it. I wonder about people I don't know when I read their LJs and they sound really intersting...maybe they are really boring but are good writers. I have quite a story to tell you about my day yesterday but I will have to save it for another time.
Say what you like about global warming...I kinda like it. It was something like 55degF out today. The last few days, the moon has been amazing...very full and bright.
If you are ever in a dollar store looking at a can labeled cheeseburger-mac and you are thinking 'gee, that looks good'...think about it some more.
Things I've learned today (my personal goal is to learn one new thing everyday...today I've learned 3):
1. People really don't notice things that I think they would notice. I think I will dye my hair orange. Well, maybe after Pennsic.
2. I cannot make it to the bathroom and back to the microwave in under 1 minute.
3. It takes less than 1 minute for my oatmeal to overflow its container in the microwave.

Well gang, I'm finally back in armor again.
i got a flat tire today. it wouldn't have been bad but it was along side a busy highway and the lugs were on so tight that i broke the freakin' tire tool trying to get the wheel off. and go figure, it was a night i had to be somewhere. why can't this crap happen in my driveway in the morning. i really wouldn't mind skiping work to fix a flat.
I have to admit that I like the idea of journaling way better than I like the actual process of doing it. My compliment to the faithful posters who keep there journals up to date.
Someone's got a birthday coming up...ok it's me. In case you were wondering what to get me, here is a little hint: http://www.cowcalendars.com/calendar.htm
Hi. Hope everyone enjoyed the holidays...or at least suffered through them in a somewhat tolerable fashion. I got a late start this year so had to do the last minute scramble. That’s always fun. Scheduling everything was a treat too…work, family, friends, Becca’s mom’s time, cooking for xmas dinner, wrapping presents. Yikes. It is almost enough to take the joy out of Christmas. Almost. Everything turned out great. No one got pissed at me this year. I think that is a first. Some of my earliest childhood memories of Christmas were fights and arguments…being sent to my room…yea!…good stuff. I was determined to break the chain this year. No more bad Christmases ever. There was one thing that happened xmas morning that upset me…the kind of thing that would normally ruin my day. But I decided to put all those bad thoughts behind me and start the day over. Becca and I had fun cooking the stuff we were to bring for Christmas dinner. Then we loaded up the car and went over friends’ house (you know who you are). It was a great medieval Christmas feast. We wore our period garb and ate a wonderful meal. There was brie pie, fresh fruit, bread, hummus, pea soup, beef roast, chicken, groats, jeweled couscous, spiced pears, and custard. It was all divided up into courses and served that way instead of the modern family style. Everyone got quite full so we took a short break between the 3rd and 4th courses for some story telling and to exchange gifts. Opening gifts, we went one at a time and cheered for each other…it was all great fun. Then Becca and I had to leave to go visit the family and exchange gifts over at my mom’s house. It is quite different there because of the number of people (aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews all crowded in) it wouldn’t be practical to go one at a time. The presents get handed out and opened in a more random fashion. For example: I may give a present to my nephew at the same time my sister may give one to my mom. Now if I want to watch my nephew open the gift I gave him so I can witness first hand the joy and excitement on his face as he realizes I got him the perfect gift…(ok, I’m laying it on a bit thick)…then I would not want to pass out a gift to my niece until my nephew was done opening his. If I really don’t care to see everyone open the gift I got them, I just pass them all out at one time. So I guess it is the gift givers responsibility to watch the recipient open the gift, not the recipient’s responsibility to wait their turn to open the gift. Anyway, none of that was important for any reason...I just felt like chatting to someone...Thanks for "listening".
So I take this test and get them all right. How scary is that?

I know it has been forever since I posted. A lot has happened...that's an understatement. So much has happened that I really cannot say it all so I'll sum up.
Carla and I seperated. I moved out. That was a couple months ago. Starting over...setting up a new place...has been a challenge. Once I've got everything straightened around a bit, I'll invite everyone over.
Becca's mom went to the hospital with 2 brain aneurysms. That was one month ago. She is still recovering but is finally at home. Becca got to stay with me full time for the 4 weeks. It was a lot of fun but all the extra driving taking her to/from school/hospital was all very tiring.
Well there is an sca event tomorrow...I got to go get my stuff ready.
Hey. I was posting like mad every day then just fell down on the job so to speak. Not much to say now execpt that today was strange. I got news the other day that I was going to stay at work for sure. It is such a relief after about 9 months of expecting it to end. Then yesterday, my friend who was suposed to be staying told me he was leaving. A bunch of us went out tonight to say good bye and knock a few back. I was planning on staying out all night and getting blastered but I got a call from someone that wanted to do something tomorrow morning so I figured that I should change plans. It's just this post, check email and go to bed...I'm beat for some reason. I guess I haven't been sleeping will with all this stress about work. It is a weird complex plan of who is staying, who is going and then there will be additional replacement workers coming over. The company doesn't know what, how or when anything is going to happen. They are scrambling in and out of emergency planning meetings all day. I guess I'll just have to wait and see what happens.
