My first day off in forever and what do I do? Work. Yup. Wrote an article this morning, and am about to clean the house. Meanwhile, I’m thinking about things to knit. This sweater, or the stuff in my Ravelry queue… something, anything to get me past my current brain-stoppage on the jack in the pulpit sweater.
(Yup. That’s its working name, due to shape, but it’s awfully long…)
I remain angry at the shawl design-in-progress and am currently not speaking to her.
Tomorrow is my five-year anniversary with ye olde boyfriend. I bought him a membership to the Jack Kirby Museum, he got me copies of Red Dawn and Clash of the Titans on DVD. We are such geeks. WOLVERINES!
Proof that geekiness is pretty much lifelong: the photo at left. That is me, ca. 1982 or 1983 as Athena, post- developing an insane love of Clash of the Titans. My mother used all her art school training and more to make me that papier-machÃ© helmet, I’ll have you know. The look on my face? I still do that all the time, it’s just my natural glare. I can’t help it!
