when will then be now?

I promise to have pictures soon. By Saturday night at the latest. Hopefully I'll have some apartment pictures to share, too. I also got tagged, but I probably won't blog that until then, either.

I forgot to take pictures of my 2nd SP package and put them on the laptop (Euclid) and then bring Euclid to work so I could post. But it was a fantastic package. I got my favorite yarn in my favorite colorway (Malabrigo in Little Lovely), and some misti alpaca in a fantastic pink. and chocolate (man, she has been sending the BEST. CHOCOLATE. EVER.), and a notebook, and a SUPER AWESOME Mario shirt than Jared is convinced he is going to steal. (He's wrong, btw.) And I think probably something else that I can't remember. SP, email me to get my (yet again) new address (it won't change again for a year, I swear) if you haven't sent package 3 yet.

And now, for Summer Knitty:

  • Zinzin - Oh, how I wish I could get away with wearing something backless. The girls, however, will not hear of it. They're so demanding.

  • Sophie - Why do I like this? The neck doesn't make sense, and I'll likely get tangled in it. But oh, how I want it.

  • 'Vog On - I love ankle socks. They give me hope that I could finish a pair of socks. You know, sometime. Eventually.

  • Coupling - I want to see these in a solid before I make my final decision. But I'll probably like 'em.

  • Breeze - Again, short socks.

  • Prickly Girl - I want this in a grown up size with no flowers. Seriously.

  • Sweet Pea - I'm a sucker for all socks.

And that's it for Summer Knitty.

I'm changing my aim screen name. If you have the old one, and want the new one, (or if you don't have either) email me at chemicalpink (at) gmail (dot) com. I'm still using the old one, but I'm making it work only.

So, the boy is staying with me at Suna's until we move into our apartment on Friday. I had to make the blog private for a little while, his ex was being a little stalker-y. But it should be all good now.

We spent all weekend at A-Kon. I've gone every year for the last 5 years, and I've volunteered on staff for the last 4. This was Jared's (btw, that's the boy's name) first time at an actual con, and he volunteered with me. We had a blast, and bought some kick ass things (including some movie posters that I drool over if I merely think about them: Army of Darkness, Clockwork Orange, Once Upon a Time in Mexico, Battle Royale, Nightmare Before Christmas and a HUGE Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas).

I haven't been knitting much, but things seem to have settled down. I have my boy, I have some exciing news that is not ready for public consumption yet, I'm back at Apple for another temp contract (please let this one last). The video store I worked at closed without warning or explanation while I was out of town.

And that's most of my news for now. I have a package at my post office box that I haven't had a chance to pick up yet, maybe tomorrow before work.
