Where in the World have I Been?

Sometimes time just gets away from me. I was a bit sickly for a couple of weeks, then one of my friends came to visit, then we went to visit her in return along with everyone else in that area. So I guess it's been busy around here.

As far as I know, I haven't knit a single stitch since my last post. My brother is doing some interesting knitting, though. With very little instruction and his own ingenuity he has figured out interasia and put it to amazing use. I keep telling him to bring it over so I can photo it in the daylight, but we always manage to get together when it's getting dark. It's turning out really cool, though. He's using cotton that has perfect sheen and in colors you wouldn't expect in a baby blanket, and he's putting the Queen's Reich symbol big and bold in the middle of it. He's making it for a friend who just had a baby. It may just turn out to be the coolest baby blanket ever =) I'm proud of him. I may have taught him to knit, but he's taken off in directions I haven't gone, so it's fun to see what he can do.

Work is going decently well. Things are picking up after the initial Summer slowdown. Someone called me Magic Fingers and marvelous yesterday - lol

I do have pictures in my camera, but I'm too caffiene deprived at the moment to hook it up. We got the satellite guy here now hooking us up with TV. I've held out for... nearly 14 years, refusing to get cable or satellite TV since regular TV eats up too much time already. Our digital receiver though is just awful. The picture is fine, but the guide it uses stinks, most of the channels say "No Information Available" and it's just a pain in the butt. Anytime you want to look at the channel list, it stops receiving the channel it's on and flips to the guide only. I guess it can only think about one thing at a time. Also, we had two DVR's that died within a couple weeks of each other and a major lightning strike. So that was sad, too. We'll be getting a new DVR with the TV deal.

Oh yeah, as for Claudia, she was number 1 again and her ride went very well. yaay

I think I need coffee - talk to y'all later =) sooner rather than later I hope
