Burned Out


It’s that time of year.  I’m burned out.  I’m getting sick of doing things for everyone else.  It sounds bad–I love making things and doing things for others.  It is in my nature.  But I don’t like deadlines and I find that this is the time of year that the lack of reciprocation is more pronounced.  It’s just an exhausting time of year, and with my graceful fall and subsequent sicky cruds, I’m just kind of done.

No, not extra love. Panic.

Tomorrow is going to be filled with weaving in ends, wool soak, baking cookies and prepping a package that BY GOD HAD BETTER GET TO ITS INTENDED RECIPIENT BEFORE CHRISTMAS.

Anyway, I started on the border of my miter square blanket and I like it.  The Mr. decidedly does not like it because “the white doesn’t really go with it”.  What?  The squares were intentionally whip stitched with white so it would show up.  I wanted an old fashioned feel to this And. I. Like. It.  It’s kind of patriotic.  Any resemblance to any political logos are purely unintentional.

Everyone can bite my shiny metal ass.

I haven’t weaved in any of the ends yet but I just needed some mindless knitting today.  It was necessary.

Knitting Ryan might have to go into my boyfriend album on Facebook.

In other news, Kim Jong Il died…like yesterday?  Something like that.  News hit the US tonight.  I found out on Twitter before I found out on the news.  I love and hate the world where I get my serious news and fake animal tweets all in the same place.

I was thinking of an unrelated thing


This commercial SUCKS.  I don’t need to cry every time I get on the internet.  

Unrelated, look at what I got at Kroger today!

Also unrelated:  I love new Twitter followers!

Her parents must be *so* proud!

I should do Follow Friday more, because I like things and you should like the things that I like. People always tell you about things they hate, like the time I was on the MARTA train and two guys told me how bad Bad Boyz 2 was. If strangers on a train will tell you how bad a movie is, you should believe them.

By the way, I wish I had some kind of drunken audio or video clip to enhance last night’s post, but I don’t. In a totally unrelated and boring note, I’m watching Dora the Explorer and Dora and Boots are helping the music teacher get to school on time. The fastest way is via zip line. I guess like #1 on this list via Okay…

Well shit, that was tedious. On the upside, that’s everything, pretty much, so I will never have to do this again. Also, since I’m feeling like a real asshole today, I leave you with this:
