you can only eat so much pocky.
furthermore, i have nothing on the sticks as they say(knitting projects to you 2 non-knitter readers out there...jason!) and that stresses me, i then bring all manner of yarn, just in case, i get nervous so i have something to keep my hands busy so i won't pick my butt or something. it could happen, right?
normally i can't sleep, so i will make sure everything is packed in the morn. one of those things being halloween appropriate gear, including my several pairs of halloween underpants. a must have. and make sure you check old navy for em, they always have really good ones. goth. my favorites are the orange skull ones.
what about a tour de france on a unicycle? that i would watch!
er...oh, my secret pal pgh sent me a really sweet card and a copy of rebecca mag! she is so nice! and i realize what a crap secret pal i am. my regular secret pal is suffering the most, although she never blogs, so i think she is super busy with her doctoral stuff, i have gotten her a good stash of candy waiting, including everyone's favorite, especially jake, pocky! although they chocolate is gross. the japanese aren't known for their fine chocolates. maybe why they aren't fat arses like us americans. a theory? you can only eat so much pocky. i should get that tattooed on my throat.
my mom's ex-neighbor, rosa called me today and i love the woman. we are kindred spirits, i reckon. she said that she would like to help me deal with my emotional pain and that she thought that my illnesses are made worse because of it, and i totally agree. i am not terribly meditative, i get a bit freaked out, cause, well, there are monsters in there! it is dark! and scary! but i don't want to be bitter and twisted, as my mom would say and i will do my best to be ok with myself and others. so. oh, and my mom never mentioned to her that i have a fiber business and knit, and rosa is a "bit of a knitter" in her own words and has a loom! what?! how did i not know this? she said she would visit me next week to check out my yarns. how flattering? very flattering.
what else? well!! amy came over for a bit and i messed around with sending in my artwork for the stamps for my labels, etc, and they will soon be on their way! labels! yeah! luxe! fancy shmancy! and, i have a minor change on my business cards, i realized that i need to get a po box and take my address off of everything to avoid being murdered for my yarn stash. god knows there is no money to steal. *note to stalkers....no money here....no, seriously, and don't mess with my yarn, either. so they should be ready to go for the crafty ordeal! yeah! fingers crossed.
i need to get the kits spun and packaged, jacey said hers do really well, so i need to go back to the idea and get it done already! she is doing hats based on philosophers, so go check her site out...well, not right now, but when you are done here... goddamn! i have had people tell me that they would be more likely to buy a kit than just yarn. although i will have worsted hand dyed yarn for the more lacey sorts of knitters.
ok, i think that is all...oh, also, i won a cotton boucle on ebay to dye, although it is unbleached and is really pretty as is. i got ironstone yarn like it before, like identical, but i think it was much more expensive. i hope so, anyway.
ok, this may be it for the weekend. unless jacey and i blog from camp like the nerds that we are.
lastly, i feel much much better, and angela from material whirled said that maybe is was all the good wishes you all were sending me, and i think maybe it was. i think no one should want to even talk to me when i have the black cloud hanging over me and you still want to. warts and all. it makes me feel really loved. and it means a lot to me. so thanks. and i feel not too bad. a bit tired, but i can deal with it. and that is fine with me.
and for those of you in the harrisburg area, you may want to stay indoors this weekend. cause more than a dozen really wild spinners are coming your way. and we don't get out much. and we don't get around each other much, at all...so beware! of the muffin! jason!
