Okay, I need to blog more, if only for my sanity. today was kinda freaky. it started when I jumped out of bed (at 8:15 - the time i was supposed to be leaving the house to go to work) and stepped right into a nice cold puddle of water. my first thought was "Ashleigh, why did you pee on the floor!!!!!!!" (sorry baby), but with my next few steps i discovered it wasn't the fault of my falsely maligned kitty, but the lovely rain that had seeped under my door and covered my floor, in strategic areas, like every other tile. Okay, so I leave the house (after moving a few books and extension cords, and surge protectors to higher ground), with sister in the passenger seat (she of the moaning guilt about my stuff getting wet, that dissolved into gentle snores halfway to dc) and call the job explaining that I was late for work due to the flooding apartment (liar-liar pants on fire, partly). I get to work late and get my stuff done, then leave early. just as I am about to leave i am questioned by a rep from the regional office about some investigation into some weird cake underpricing thing at the store (which I think was actually an investigation into morale issues since the unions are sniffing around trying to get in again). Well, i drive home in the (still) pouring rain and find there are no new puddles and the old ones have dried. But best of all, i find that my yarn cafe package has arrived!!!!! Yippeee!!!! Now I was expecting this because darling Kay had spilled the beans and bought hers in, so I was in a properly yarn-lusty state when I got home. She really made me jealous when she showed me her new Neighborhood Fiber co yarn, that stuff was.... like whoa, it was just awesome. I really hope Karida gets her act together soon 'cause the girl has mad skills in the yarn area. Anyway, back to yarn cafe. I'm thinking anastasia socks for the yarn. I feel that designers need to be compensated, must be compensated, but i don't currently have the seven bucks to spare to buy another sock pattern (car window needs repair, check engine light is on, have fall hiking trip to save for, not to mention the summer driving trip with big sis, priorities must be set), so i'm going for the freebies. enough rambling. think i'll go charge the camera batteries so i can take pictues of all my recent yarn purchases. oh, almost forgot, bought bryson rosewood sock needles at sheep and wool. 10 bucks!!!!! compared to 20 for lantern moon that's a steal of such magnitude it cannot be properly described. so i bought two pairs.
