Y’all, I’ve been kinda having a shitty last few days. I think it’s better? I had a work problem that was very serious. Bear was sick. I had family issues. I forgot about a papery thing that was due for my class until 3 hours before class. I brained myself in the head with the coffee table. That was lovely. AJ was right there to witness it too. Lovely. That’s not to say I didn’t have fun. Bear and I had some good quality time in between all his sleeping and coughing and miserableness. AJ and I had some quality time. Nice talking, watching CM, grocery shopping, brunch eating time. Also I have some really happy making stuff to read. Its just that some things blew up on me.

But today, on my way back to my lab after class, I had the most beautiful idea. I AM GOING TO SPIN!! I cannot tell you how excited I am. I’m going to watch that episode of the Closer that came on a wee bit ago and if I get really into it maybe I’ll find a movie to watch. I am going to switch my bobbins and do a fluffy 2 ply.

Assuming I keep spinning and never get around to knitting again I really will have to find a knitter that wants to take this shit off my hands, but we can get to that part later. YAY.


Two articles (one long, and one really really long) have been keeping me entertained.

Secrets of Storytelling is about how and why we enjoy stories so much. I remember in high school our english teacher telling us that we had to “suspend disbelief”. Trust me, there isn’t a girl who has graduated from HS who had this teacher that doesn’t still hear her voice in our heads. Her title was not Professor, or Teacher, or even the generic Mrs/s. She was Queen.

The other article is Newsweek’s Secrets of the 2008 Campaign. I’m fascinated by all the behind the scenes fighting and decisions. The link takes you to the highlights, which are fascinating enough on their own, but follow along to chapter 1. I think it’s worth the time.

Enjoy a song as well. I had forgotten how much I loved this song until I was randomly going through youtube last night. I love the video as well.
