oh me aching 'ead.
|this will be short, i have been fighting off a migraine for the last 5 hours or so. |
i got a few new yarns done and updated www.luxe.etsy.com, and i will be adding tons more stuff over the week, so please check in as often as you fancy. i have some lovely soft neckywarmers and scarves, some of my creatures, some buttons, fiber and of course some yarns. so. go. check it out.
i have to pack up orders to-morrow, do some updating, and some dyeing. shannon told me she has been doing some sun dyeing and it has been really warm and gorgeous here, so i think i will give that a shot. i haven't done any in ages. shameful.
last night (i don't think i blogged this yet), i didn't sleep, hence the headache, i assume, but izzy ended up in between me and peeps, i moved her a bit to see what peeps would do, you know, peeps, the cat hating cat, and she woke up and started aggressively grooming izzy and then went back to sleep! she did at one point put her feet against izzy like she would kick her off the bed, but still. that is a big deal. and kahlo let me drag her up onto the bed to lay on me for a bit and she purred away and drooled a bit. she usually is all over me all the time, especially at night i have all of the cats up here, but since izzy, no one but peeps, who is just taking advantage of no other cats. and pavel has been avoiding us, and he is now starting to come up on the bed. i hate it because he has no relationship with the other cats (although he really seems interested in izzy) and is so close to jake, but has been staying off of the bed at night.
i am going to attempt to just lay here and veg out because i am seeing double. so.
3:15 a.m. already?

now we're flying!
|just a quickie. last night...NO SLEEP. none. okay, maybe an hour or something. i got up and showered and spent the entire day packing orders and swaps and things. mostly orders(shocking since i have barely added anything to the site. shameful!) anyway, i still have to do a couple more that popped up and i will have to get that done before i can go and mail em and go to the art supply and see my pal gabe. weee! i missed the farmers market. i was just too busy.|
i feel like a zombie, but don't feel awful, shockingly. i am hoping to fall asleep and stay asleep until the morning. izzy can go 6 hours without eating but she wakes me up to play. she is getting so incredibly fast, i notice differences in agility and things from day to day. it is amazing.
izzy is still farting wretched farts. so bad. i am so eager to do some spinning, especially some fun halloween yarns. i may do some that have beads or buttons that go along, like a kit for a neckywarmer or something. i know, i talk crap half the time, i am too tired or busy to get it finished. i would like to, though.
i got caught up on my emails, however, i will be behind on blogs forever. the luxe site is not updateable by me because of that stuff they did and i don't want to drag jason, my friend that did the site for me, into a big ordeal when i know he has a girlfriend and big deal job, plus a life, so i don't know what to do. since that update that zencart did, i can't get onto my site and add anything. i would like a gallery, bio, etc, but it will have to wait i guess.
okay, i swear, new photos to-morrow.
mwah mwah mwah

being pissed on is better than being pissed off
isobel was on a good stretch of holding her bladder, it was almost odd, really. and then...i had a few major incidents and i always gasp, everytime it happens. gah. otherwise, she is getting fast. here she is with the crocheted thingy i made her to chew on and play with. she likes it. i also dug out the stuffed teething rings that we got for pavel to attempt to redirect him from biting when he was wee, which didn't workout so well. he never really got out of the habit.
i took one of my provigil "pep" pills this morning because i have to get my ass in gear and do some work no matter how tired i feel. at least today i didn't feel horrid from the start. izzy didn't want to sleep, she wanted to play and act crazy (which involves biting my lips, nose and attempting to scratch me in the eye with her really sharp little claws) big fun. i don't drink milk, i have always hated it and was allergic to it as a tot, so i have a hard time telling if she is being fussy with her milk or it is going off, so i end up going down to warm up a new bottle at some ridiculous time and then she doesn't want it anyway. gah! she can climb out of her bag, so i always worry that i won't wake up when she starts doing it, although i am a light sleeper and usually do.
once the pep wears off, i have usually been such a spaz that i have a headache, which i do, and didn't eat (i know why mom's steal their kids' ritilin) it really not only kills your appetite, but it makes you forget to eat, too. i did get some stuff done today, i will try to get you photos to-morrow, i have to pack up lots of stuff to ship, so i may not have time. i am also hoping to make time to visit one of my favorite people in the universe, gabe, who is in the neighborhood of the post office and art supply.
barbe gave me a really cool link for an artist that works in polymer clay. you guys know i am an admitted snob, but i really didn't realize what you can do with polymer clay. one of the nice features that ceramics don't have is that you can use the mica powders and glazes, etc, etc, the whole way around without concern of a big drippy part or it sticking to the kiln. i cannot be trusted with a torch (a semester of metal smithing showed that very clearly), i am way to scatterbrained and can barely use an electric skillet or heat gun without wounding myself. additionally, i have ripped out hair with a flexshaft even though i had it tied back. i lean in to everything really really close. it is a bad habit. when i tattooed i did that too, and when blood is involved, it is a good idea to back the truck up, ya know?
oh! reginald the lion with male pattern baldness has sold to a man in london who has offered reg a position in his blues band, nights out on the town and a place to crash! how cool is that? reg told me that my place sucks and he is very excited to be moving to europe. he may be pissed when he finds out that he will be in a box airmail and not a private jet. still, he gets to live in a really cool place that i imagined i would live when i was an angst filled teen. i may have to make him some pants before he goes, though. i would hate to see him out in the cold rain in his underclothes. wanna have a last look at him before he leaves?
i realized that my cell phone had died because i haven't charged it in a really long time, so if you called my cell and not home number, i am not avoiding you. call me at home, dammit. i probably have a zillion messages. i need an assistant. that doesn't need to get paid. and will wake me up and get me coffee. and poop and feed the kitten. did ya know that they can't poop by themselves until they get bigger? jealous now? also, could ya do my hair? that would rock. and make-up?
oh, lastly...does anyone have texture sheets for polymer clay that they don't want? they aren't that expensive and i can make some myself, but if anyone has some, gimme a shout, kay?
