"Attention Ship's Company...

All those involved in I-night please be on the quayside at 1845 to catch the bus to the venue. Shirley Booth, dial 9 please. Shirley Booth, dial 9." ~This weird ship memory brought to by The Random Brain of Kirsten Harrison. Thank you for your time.~

And in other news, I've moved my blogging life to WordPress. Find me at:

The Case of the Missing Sock Needles


I cannot find ANY of my circular sock needles. It’s annoying. I mean, yes, my apartment is a huge mess and yes, my knitting stash/junk could use a good organizational overhaul…but still! I should have some idea where my knitting needles are, dontcha think? Irritating. So I did what any knitter would do in such a situation: with full knowledge that they must be in my apartment somewhere but without the time to go searching right now, I went and bought a new pair. :O) And I think I decided that I like Crystal Palace circs best. It’s the swiveling joint and lightness and bamboo-ey yumness. I like Crystal Palace best for magic loop. I have made that decision. So there.

Sock Wars!

Sign up.

And also, I'm learning Arabic.

I wish I had pictures!

I went water-skiing this weekend. It was AWESOME! I was kind of nervous and figured I wouldn’t even try–I hurt my back about 3.5 weeks ago and it’s still pretty bad. But once we were on the boat I absolutely couldn’t NOT try. I mean, really. I used to love to ski. It’s been…oh, 10 years (at LEAST) since I’ve skied. I’ve had 2 knee surgeries, my back is out and I weigh more than I have in 5 years: all definite signs that I would chicken out or not be able to get up. It seems that skiing is alot like riding a bike. Once you know the technique you can do it 10 years later, even without practice! It was cool. Really cool.

I’m so happy.

Back in the day...

I mean, way back. People used to tear their clothes and cut their hair when they received bad news. I assume it would have to have been fairly devastating news for people to chop their hair off.

I cut my hair last night. Seemed like the thing to do at the receipt of the knowledge that was given to me last night. So today is a very contemplative day. Sad even. And my hair is short.

How is your day?

EDIT: Sorry guys. Bad things happen. Nobody died. Life is messy and I just got an ugly reminder of it last night. Don't worry too much about me!! (Don't worry at takes YEARS off your life. I certainly don't want to be the cause of that!) Thanks for means alot to me.
