you should be glad you’re not here.
(taken at 9:47 in the morning)
i got stung in the face by a wasp. fucking wasps.
admittedly i knew what i was getting into. earlier i had asked someone to move this thing and they called me and said that after they threw rocks at it (don’t question this) something like 47 wasps came out and they ran away like little girls so they weren’t gonna touch it.
i was ok with this idea.
then i go down there. i say ‘fuck it’ and i try moving this thing. initially all is good. now realize this thing is an old spool for cable. about armpit height. about 5′ across. it’s heavy. really heavy. right when i’m semi-bent over and holding this thing at about a 45º angle one. i say again, one. one stupid fucking wasp comes out, flies at my face, stings me, does something like sting me again or get caught in my sunglasses, and finally leaves.
stupid thing had an unfair advantage.
i now plan to kill his entire family. they shall pay.
oh, i finished this a while ago. i like it alot. it’s comfy.
and another shot because i can.
what? you don’t use 3 different yarns in one project?
so somehow i managed to win the wwkip day photo scav hunt. i’m not entirely sure how, but it’s been pretty awesome.
here’s some of my prizes
i also finished some socks i was knitting. these are cauchy from cookie a. a very quick knit. the colour’s a bit off in these photos. sorry, but no buildings around here have windows so good picture taking is hard.
overall the fit is good. nothing real fancy, but it kept me interested and after a few repeats i had the pattern memorized.
so the other day i lived through my first earthquake. now it’s the kind of earthquake that people who have earthquakes don’t even think about. just a little wiggle. nothing.
it took a while to convince everyone that it wasn’t an explosion of some kind.
also, a good friend of mine just had a baby girl so i made her a hat. (they like skulls)
people at work have been using the phrase: like white on rice.
i’ve never heard that phrase before and i find it odd.
but then they tell me they’ve never heard the word: egregious.
i guess we’re even.
sooooo….no shit there i was, reading the ska (sock knitters anonymous) forums on ravelry when i noticed there was a photo scavenger hunt. i thought, well, i can do that. so i’ve spent the last day taking photos of my sock in progress with everyone i could think of. well, most people i could think of. i’m kinda scared of some of my higher level bosses, i didn’t want to cause an international incident, and i wasn’t really allowed to travel. so i took pictures of lots of people. and my sock. i think everyone who lives in the same place as i do thinks i’m completely insane. but they all did it. and they all smiled and laughed. i think it helped in the long run. it was just such a ridiculous request.
what else did i learn….ummmm…stupid things make me happy? who knows.
