So I went to a memorial service today. My aunt's mother died the day before Easter after a long battle with kidney failure and a ton of other problems and bah. My maternal grandmother went sorta crazy when I was about 10 or 11 (thank you, genetics -_-), and my paternal grandparents I didn't see often and died when I was in junior high, so Geri was really the only grandmother figure I saw on a regular basis at family gatherings. It was a nice memorial, and I sat at the table with my cousin, her husband and baby son, and all her friends. Cried, which I hate doing in public and in front of family especially, and now I'm back home in jammies and trying to get up the energy to rinse off my makeup. *flops* So am bummed today.

Anyway, there was mention of saying I love you more often. And really, that's not bad advice. So you know what, best f-list ever? I LOVE YOU GUYS. Thanks for hangin' in there and letting me have my pity parties and being just freakin' awesome 24-7. ♥
I HAVE SUCCEEDED WITH MOEBIUS KNITTING! Lost a couple of stitches in the process, but it's there now, and flowing nicely, and I can finally discharge one of my long-standing knitting debts (scarf for mi mama.) HA! Take THAT seemingly impossible knitting technique!

I feel somewhat accomplished this month, actually. Even if it's "only knitting", and hell, something I enjoy, I slogged through the Shawl of Doom, didn't immediately scrap the Scarf of Calamity when it got tough, have devious plots in the process of being carried out, pulled out my spindle for another go at hand spinning, and tackled the moebius knitting cast on. Life may be throwing bits of ennui my way, but by Gods, I FINISHED SOMETHING. *triumph*

Also? I miss my ohana. I really, really, REALLY do. *sniffle* Luckily, I have a couple of trips inbetween now and JUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUNE to take a bit of the edge off. My twin [ profile] isolabela and I are planning a three day weekend of Zebra cakes, caffeine, anime, and knitting in April. I AM SO LOOKING FORWARD TO THIS. *is already packed* I've got another three day weekend in May with one of my closest friends, Liv, in Portland, OR. She and I always manage to have fun together, even if we're just sprawled around her living room, watching America's Next Top Model marathons in our pajamas, eating ice cream. And then, a week full of ohana, Sedona, tattoos, and complete and utter havoc (the GOOD kind of havoc, mind) in JUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUNE. I get melancholy from time to time, you guys, but I know I've got friends and family who love me. AND I LOVE YOU GUYS RIGHT BACK! *smooches* I must've done something really good in a previous life, to have you people in my life. <333

I'm bored. It's a Sunday. My brain is sorta dead, so thinking hard isn't a good thing. My knitting needles are too long to use while I'm sitting in this chair (they hit the armrests.) Yes, I am too lazy to move. I have Emilie Autumn on iTunes, mah wifey on the instant messanger, and the view of sun dappled evergreens outside my window. Time to share some of my favorite things with my favorite, beloved f-list...

onward to the links! )

You may now return to your regularly scheduled lives <333
