|well! if you haven't seen the now famous "bunny foo foo" yarn, here it is...and it is sold, i am sorry. i am going to go in search for more of these beads which were from a children's easter jewelry set from last year...so...but anyway, i spun all of the scraps of roving end to end overlapping a bit and then plied these in. there is a plain matching skein too. i have other ones going up to-morrow, also that are just gorgeous. no "plain" ones in the batch. so check in around suppertime to-morrow and then again sunday for yarns and spinning batts. i have dyed up soooooo much loose fiber lately that there should be some really good batts to fill the luxe.etsy.com shop. and it is all combined shipping, $4.05 no matter what you buy, so let's just say that i send priority and insure them so i pay more than that...okay...yarn photos...let me say, i am loving the new photo toys. so fun. and it makes my blog look fancy!|
so in the one sandy colored one, i have a ton of little mother of pearl shell beads all through it that are just gorgeous. it is such a nice soft beachy yarn....if you had your own island in the caribean kind of island. and then more batts, for sure. also, i have lots of loose fiber and different kinds of locks, which i think i might dye and sell by the ounce, i have had lots of questions about it. so. ask and you will recieve. also, i am going to write up some patterns to include with yarns orders so people know what they can make, if they need it.
we went out to dinner with the sweet butta and his new girlfriend who was a really cool girl. i would hang out with her. she was really really nice, intelligent, together and easy to talk to. i have a hard time meeting girlfriends because i have a history of them hating me, this may be my first really good experience! i fear we bored her because we aren't terribly exciting and i tried my best not to speak of knitting, or fiber, art or any other stuff that she would likely have no interest in and then my eyes glaze over and i am not listening to anyone while they weep and rip their hair out bored out of their skulls. so then...i am not sure what to talk about. despite that, it was fun.
my laptop has to go to the shop to get something fixed and i really need to send it in soon. here is the problem...in the 2 weeks or more that they will be fixing it, i will have no computer. i found some websites that sell refurbished macs that are pretty cheap (as low as 300 bucks) and i only need to know that it can load photos and do fast uploads for the internet stuff, otherwise, i don't use it much. email, photos, maybe the podcast stuff, minimal though. so i need to call the place and talk to one of the geeks and ask what i could get for cheap that could do all of that. and then, it is always nice to have a fallback computer anyway. if anyone has a working laptop that has wireless capabilities that would be interested in leasing it to me for a couple of weeks, or selling it for cheap, let me know. again, if uploading stuff on the internet would take forever, no dice. i looked into renting one, and it starts at 250 bucks a week! wha? starts at, so i imagine it is way more than that even. i realized that i could get a refurb one, or open box one from these online places for a few hundred bucks, but i don't know if they are fast enough for the stuff i do. i know nothing. shameful nothing. i was impressed though, they give you a 1 year warranty thru mac, and 90 days from them. some of them are just completely made from spare parts, all new parts, but spare parts and are way cheaper.
i loved the input on the fashion post. i was a bit scared that i had ranted too much and someone would jump on me or something but what i guess i realized is that fashion used to be glamorous, you know? it seems like around the early 1960's bad bad things started happenning and never stopped. everything that i like was from the 50's or earlier. things that took into consideration that we have hips and thighs and boobs and stomachs and other stuff, too, and that things needed to show that off and make our curves look good. back then, even big girls could buy fashionable clothes that made them look sexy. now, fashion is only for the very thin, if you are not 6 feet tall and 100 pounds, it would be frightening. and even on the models, it doesn't look so good. it really is almost as though fashion is from people who hate women. clearly, they hate the female form. what flatters a 11 year old boy is not what flatters a woman. pretty much across the board.
part of my mania had to do with the full-moon. i get craaaaazy everytime and i never know why. and pms always creeps up on me too, and i am unaware of why i feel so irritable. part of it is the insane amount of money that is wasted on shite. they want and like it because someone told them to. because j-lo wears it, or whatever. and then, you have a nervous breakdown, or get heavier or whatever and they all turn on you and it really upsets me. they are like vultures. i have attempted to be friends with people who turned out to be this way....they are around you to steal attention and style cues (how scary is that?) and if you want, they buy it, etc, and do it with other people, and when that person falls from their high pedestal, they are happy to step over them. it is sad. and the clothes that they had to have that were 3,000 for some ugly mini jacket, garbage. last season. i don't know why you would want to live like that? i would want things that i will love forever. i love the 30-50's and anytime i am dressed up, i tend to wear something in that vain. i have always liked that kind of thing. how can anyone be so damn fickle?
okay, i am getting tired and grouchy, so i am going to go.i had bad nightmares and felt awful this morning, so i didn't sleep so well.
barbe's phone and internet are sketchy at the mo, so i might try to do a podcast on my end, we will see what happens. i will talk to barbe about it to-morrow to see if i could get the recording thing and tape us from my end.
i know there was more i wanted to say, but...
