Last night, the hubby pan-seared some sea bass. To go with it, he whipped up some tomato cream sauce with added shrimp, using fresh basil and tomatoes from our garden. We also had steamed asparagus and some sun-dried tomato ciabatta from the bakery section of our grocery store. I loves me a man who can cook.

Crossposted to knitting and my journal.

I was at my local yarn store (LYS) getting another set of DPNs. I’m halfway through a sock and can only find three needles, the ones that the sock is on, which means I’m kind of a standstill until I either find another needle somewhere in the pile of crap in my den or get new ones. I opted for ‘get new ones.’ (By the way, thanks again, Secret Pal, I’m having fun with it!)

Well, of course I can’t go to a LYS without looking at all their yarn and patterns. I was in the pattern room, poking around, when a 20-something woman came in and opened up Last Minute Knited Gifts to the leg warmer pattern. After a minute, she got out a little notepad and started writing down stuff. I watched her for a minute, then spoke up.

And it went a little somethin’ like this…

Decisions, decisions.

Hmm… for tonight… weekly “stitch’n’bitch” or alter in DR? I’m torn! What to do, what to do?

ETA: Decision made! I had a dust-up with another patron at my local yarn shop, so now I have something substantive to bitch about at my stitch ‘n’ bitch.

I Love Katamari!

I heard that “We Love Katamari” is already out in Japan! AND that it’s got a cooperative mode so the hubby and I can play together. AND that it roxxors, as the kids today say.

Predicted high: 102 degrees Fahrenheit.
On the needles: a thick woolen Jayne hat.

Why, yes, I am getting odd looks while knitting in public today, why do you ask?

Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair!

Behold! 21 Jayne hats, bound for the UK! Well, technically 10 are already over there, it’s just the other 11 that are ready to go. And that’s the end of this order!

That’s 14 large, 3 medium, 3 small, and because I’m super-nice, I’m throwing in 1 extra-small/child size.

Now on to the next project… which is another Jayne hat. And another after that. I’ll be knitting the hat until I die, but fortunately, I enjoy knitting hats.

Gotta remember to make one for myself!

My mom got me a Where’s George stamp! I’m so excited! I’m going to stamp all the money in the house.

Thanks, Mom!

Because I’m hopped up on super-sugary coffee drink, more GM stuff as we troubleshoot a problem.

[Aiwendel] For some reason weapons are moving into my inventory… stranger than strange
[Tvini] Are you carrying a giant magnet?
[Aiwendel] Nope.
[Tvini] Wearing a big bullseye?
[Aiwendel] Sometimes, but not today.
[Tvini] Insulting Kalag’s mother?
[Aiwendel] Even I’m not that dumb.
[Tvini] Then I got nothin’. Good luck.

(Yes, later we did seriously work on figuring it out. We actually do some work, you know.) 🙂
