[livejournal.com profile] isolabela and I started fraternal twin socks this weekend. Same pattern (Charade, from ravelry.com), same yarn, different colorways. And, as it turns out, despite the fact that I went up not one but TWO needles sizes, hers are STILL turning out bigger than mine, and I am worried these babies might not make it over my feet. ^^;; Aw well.

(Fraternal) Twin Terror Socks - Charade


Emily's are on the left (blue/orange/pink) and mine are on the right (pink/orange/yellow).

*sigh* Am packed up again for the train ride home. Must thrust myself into the shower and leave mah twin. ;_; Have I mentioned that I don't want to go to work tomorrow? Bah. =P

ps: [livejournal.com profile] aoibhe and [livejournal.com profile] secretchristine - Emily and I might suck at drunken Disney trivia, but you KNOW you love us best regardless. ^_~ *xoxoxoxoxoxoxo*
So I am having fun, and being all sorts of relaxed and sluglike. Not having to go to work on a Friday, and being able to just walk around and be...me. Geekiness and all. After the week I had, especially with all the crying done on Wednesday (but hey, I got to break in that new box of tissues =P), it's nice to be away from the crap. Friday I was still feeling pretty shitty, but made myself get over it -- sometimes you just have to squelch the self-pity down and move on. Twin Terror in T-Town with [livejournal.com profile] isolabela is in full effect, and it's been a huge relief to just kick it with someone I totally adore and TALK ABOUT KNITTING AND HAVE THEM UNDERSTAND AND HAVE OPINIONS and watch copious amounts of anime (and Drop Dead Gorgeous last night, while starting in on our fraternal twin terror socks.) There was crazy plumbing drama at the ungodly hour of 1:30am, and I'm a little lacking in the sleep department right now, but there is Bento and luau and sleepovers on the docket today, and I shall persevere. With only a mild nap attack. =P

Have also been able to chat more with my Ohana Collective these past few days, which makes things not only easier to deal with, but makes me happy in ways that I cannot begin to explain. There's just something about family, yo. Just wish I coulda gotten in on the pedi/massage chair action from last night! I WANT PURTY TOESIES TOOOOO! *pokies [livejournal.com profile] aoibhe and [livejournal.com profile] secretchristine* <33333 (I did, however, get a brownie and ice cream and an Emily last night, so there's always that. =P)

So I am off to shower and face my fear of a bunch of strangers to meet the twin for her break at work and GET TEA AND FUD. I have given up coffee for a while since it's harsh on my tummy, and my tummy has Not Been Happy With Me recently anyway (apparently, it doesn't like it when I, yanno...eat. Or drink. Or live, apparently. *kicks it*) so I've been consisting on tea. The headaches haven't been bad, so I have hope that I can survive. Because dude, I'm from Seattle. We drink coffee. Often. Fancy coffee, expensive coffee, drip coffee, we drink it all. I feel like I'm going back on my heritage. *grin*
Ha! I have been lamenting over my lost Stitch plushie pretty much ever since I moved back home in June. I had him in a very specific place so I could take him with me, and as usual, mom just grabbed and packed, regardless of what I wanted. BUT I FOUND HIM! It only took a few minutes of pushing and moving and cursing. Of course, it was a box at the very top in plain view, instead of the bottom where I was searching, since that seems to be the way most difficult things are. =P Oh well. I FOUND HIM! And he is ready for JUUUUUUUNE, wearing [livejournal.com profile] aoibhe, [livejournal.com profile] secretchristine, and my ohana family tree necklace. I AM SO HAPPY.



Now, am off to be full of knittiness (the moebius scarf is almost done! Mom is excited!), and take pics of some of the dolls that I am probably gonna sell. Dollie girls, nude Celsiy, Chicca, and possibly my obitsu'd Panda and my Haute NY (maybe with her glasses, even) are going up for sale probably on ShopADollic and the Pullips LJ sometime this weekend. I'm iffy on Panda and Haute NY because I really like them, but I have to prune this collection down to the ones I cannot stand to part with (namely Paja, Latte, Jupi, Frara, etc.) Plus, I need monies. *sigh* But Celsiy and Chicca for sure.
[Tarot.com Capricorn Horoscope] Throw away those astrology textbooks that say you Goats don't know how to have fun. Although you are capable of delaying your personal gratification when necessary, you also know when to put pleasure ahead of work. Luckily, this is one of those days when you can set the standard and others might have a hard time keeping up with you. But don't worry about everyone else; for now, just sing and dance as if you have been practicing for this moment all your life.

WOOORD. Damn you astrology, I AM FUN. *giggle* Speaking of fun, am going geochaching in Seattle for the day with C. and her college gang for one of their birthdays. And then off to Buca di Beppos for dinner. Hee!

Just want to note that after having, really, a lackluster week, [livejournal.com profile] aoibhe and [livejournal.com profile] secretchristine perked me up yesterday. Althought I think I'm more homesick than ever. =P And it sucks that it's Sunday, but I think I see sunshine peeking in through my blinds. Just keep on shinin', sun.

Went to craft store today with an increasingly whiney mother (honestly, when did she become a five year old? Can someone tell me this please?) and got more pink yarn, shorter knitting needles for my two scarf projects (10" as opposed to 14" lengths. It's just SO MUCH EASIER to knit when you don't have these huge ass needles to deal with, getting in the way of things like arms. =p Both projects have been successfully transferred to the new knitting needles), and memory wire/memory wire cutters to make beaded headbands for my dolls (okay, so I totally geeked out today. Sue me. =p) I also got phone calls from [livejournal.com profile] secretchristine and [livejournal.com profile] aoibhe. The rest of you, be jealous of my awesomeness. *giggle*

As for the pink yarn, I got it for my pink moebius shoulder bag. Now, I love YouTube. Not only does it bring me random clips of Dean Winchester being hot, and Sam losing his shoe, but it shows me the one knitting technique I was dying to learn, and couldn't for the life of me figure out. Cat Bordhi, you're my hero. *salutes*

Moebius knitting IS SO COOL )
The ohana is love. That is all. <33333 You cannot mess with it, you cannot break it, you cannot destroy it. It came back better, and stronger, than ever. Take that. =P

Just a quick post before I forget! Wandering around, trying to get my room in order as it's currently driving me nuts, and I just don't need any external forces helping with that. Best news ever though!! Bought plane tickets to go see [livejournal.com profile] aoibhe and [livejournal.com profile] secretchristine for the beginning of June. SO. FAR. AWAY! *cries* But it gives me much to look forward to, even if it's totally not soon enough! HEEEEE! *tackles*

*sigh* Cleaning calls. *flails* SEND HELP.
Horrible, awful freaking Christmas. I AM SO GLAD IT'S OVER. Didn't sleep well that night, and woke up around 5:20am to get a drink of water. Had just settled back into my bed when BOOM. My air filter, and clock went out. I couldn't figure out what seemed wrong until I noticed that there was no noise. I had a fit. Laying in bed. An absolute fit. Mom woke up in the next room and immediately called the power company to let them know. Cut to 6pm, after a day of getting another 8 inches of snow, in a cold, dark house on Christmas effing day. (We're up to two feet now, for those playing along at home.) Then my internet decided to be sluggish and really, I was just so cold and exhausted and miserable, I started to cry. It's a little ridiculous to think about right now, but dude, I was so done by then. These past two weeks have just knocked me on my ass.

But, I took a nice hot shower, used new bath stuffies, and cuddled down with internet, mah wifey, Criminal Minds, and flannel jammies. So while the day sucked, at least the night was good.

AND! I just saw that I was tagged by [livejournal.com profile] vomviersen for the 8 Days of Things That Make You Happy Meme! (Okay, so I'm a little slow and sorta been wallowing in self-pity. I guess this is a good thing to try. =P)

So my things for today:

~ NO SNOW! Yes, I finally woke up and DIDN'T see snow falling from the sky. And, the most beautiful news of all, a new storm is coming in and it's gonna be ALL RAIN. I've never been as happy to hear the word "rain" than I am right now. (I will ignore the ZOMG!FLOODING that will happen after it rains. Still. NOT SNOW.)

~ For the first time in years (I wanna say closer to 20, but it's probably more like 15) my father actually surprised everyone for Christmas. I got $100 in my stocking (half for my birthday, half for Christmas), Nate got $50, and mom got really good seats with my aunt to go see Seven Brides For Seven Brothers in Seattle tomorrow night (she and I wanted to do that for my birthday, but it was too expensive for all the tickets, and then the snow, and it just didn't pan out.) My father and I really don't get along - he doesn't really get along with any of us - so this was shocking in a good way.

~ A hot shower last night that made all my tears go away. Watching Criminal Minds with [livejournal.com profile] aoibhe until late. Having my power and internet back. SO. GLAD.

~ My awful twin, [livejournal.com profile] isolabela, gets to play in the desert with [livejournal.com profile] aoibhe and [livejournal.com profile] secretchristine, and while most people I would begrudge out of pure jealousy, I adore Emily and just wish I could be there too! MAH GIRLIES! LET ME SNUGGLE YOU! *loves* HAVE FUN, DARLING ♥
