NaBloPoMo Day 24: Ten for Tuesday

  1. I mailed G-Dragon’s cowl four months ago today. I have no idea whether or not he has it in his possession. I saw a photo of him wearing a large, thick, dark blue cowl at the airport, and I yelled at my computer,” That’s not my cowl, asshole!” Yeah, this is making me really cranky.
  2. Remember how I said yesterday that I wasn’t sure that I wanted to do my Autumn Bucket List anymore? Yeah, I’m getting ideas for a Winter Bucket List now.
  3. I LOVE tzatziki sauce. I had some at Ari’s on Friday, then we bought some at the Farmer’s Market on Saturday. I’m in the process of baking some bread (first rising) and I’m going to dip some of this bread into my tzatziki when it’s ready. My point? I love tzatziki more than hummus.
  4. Zombie and I went to Bailey’s Chocolate Bar on Saturday night. We were celebrating my full time promotion, and we also hadn’t seen each other in a few weeks. She’d never been there before, so it was nice that I was able to treat her to something special like that.
  5. I’ve been calorie counting since the 8th, and I’m already sick of it. Ugh. In two weeks I only lost 1.2 pounds. Of course, it’s more about the sugar restriction than calories and weight, but still.
  6. My landlord is going out of town this week and he’s asked me to check on his cat Pineapple. I was excited because I thought I would get some cat loving. When I went over there yesterday so that he could show me her things, she was less than thrilled. So I’ll just stick to the kitchen. Don’t want to stress the poor thing out.
  7. Turkey and Russia are sniping at each other. It’s the start of World War 3. I’m calling it.
  8. I finished reading The Elephant Vanishes by Haruki Murakami. I loved it. It was a collection of short stories. They ran the gamut from an excerpt from the novel The Wind Up Bird Chronicle (which I’ve read); a vanishing elephant; newlyweds who are so hungry they hold up a McDonald’s just for Big Macs; and a woman who hadn’t slept in seventeen days. Murakami is one of my favorites. Not going to lie.
  9. I finished Ibby’s scarf today! YAY! I’ve just got to bind off and block.
  10. I have a pen pal! You know- stamps, envelopes. Anyways, she’s a Twitter and AFF pal and lives in Alabama and it’s such fun. Yay being old-fashioned!

NaBloPoMo Day 23: Randomly on a Monday

Currently reading: The Elephant Vanishes by Haruki Murakami


Currently knitting: Ibby’s scarf


What I’m listening to: Rachel Maddow


What I’m thinking: Rachel Maddow quoted Justin Bieber and now I have to re-think our entire relationship.


Also, I don’t know if I want to keep continuing with my Autumn Bucket List. Or any of them. I feel like it’s too much pressure.


Same with NaBloPoMo


Current mood: sleepy

NaBloPoMo Day 22: Another Oops!

Totally missed posting yesterday. It was in my mind, then it went right out of my head.


I’m trying to think what Richie and I did yesterday that just made my mind blank.


We did go to Target, and I did buy The Sims 4. That has to be what it was. Anyone who remembers when I used to play, it consumed so much of my time. Anyways, here’s this post, and I’ll have another one up hopefully soon!

NaBloPoMo Day 21: Candi’s Cowl

So I made a cowl for a friend of mine in Australia.


No, a different friend in Australia.


Her name is Candi and she’s a brilliant writer.


She was feeling down in the dumps, so obviously it was an emergency.

I used JoJoland Tonic yarn, two different colored blues held together. I knew Candi’s favorite color is purple, but she also loves space so the colors were meant to represent ocean meeting sky.

The pattern is called Present and was really easy to knit up. It only took me eighteen days.


She looks fabulous in it. I don’t know if she would want me to post her photo here, so that’s why I posted mine. You’ll just have to take my word for it
