[ profile] isolabela and I started fraternal twin socks this weekend. Same pattern (Charade, from, 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: [ profile] aoibhe and [ 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 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 [ 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 [ profile] aoibhe and [ 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, 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 [ profile] aoibhe, [ 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.
[ 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, [ profile] aoibhe and [ 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 [ profile] secretchristine and [ 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 )

We have no bleach at work. People, I work with things that WERE IN PEOPLE'S MOUTHS. Like, mouth juice and gaaaaah *shudder* and my boss cannot be arsed to bring in a bottle of bleach. We asked MONDAY when we ran out. We are using the same bleach from MONDAY MORNING. THIS IS SO GROSS. I really don't want like...the hanta virus. Or ebola. Please to bring our things NAO. *gags*

In other non-ranty work things...I had the best time last night, comment!spamming mah peeps and giggling with the wifey and basically having a wonderful night. I haven't had that in a long time. You guys know who you are, THANK YOU FOR THAT. If I could, I would knit you all mittens and bake you all cookies. ♥
I am having trouble with the actual perscription part of my glasses, just a little. I think I've been holding things close to my face for so long, that everything now, when I look through my 'script, seems really blurry. I have to find the perfect distance, because too far away is just as blurry as too close. =P

Went out to dinner last night with my little cousin, Alex. (And when I say "little", I mean that he's 22 and 6 feet. *grin*) We were going to meet his girlfriend at Red Hook for dinner, and she called up to say her car died and she had coasted in neutral for nearly two miles until she found a place to pull into, at a BoA branch. When we were trying to push her truck into a parking space that the bank had kindly said we could use, and older man jumped out of his car and started to help us. It was determined that the car needed oil since it was completely out, and he said he would wait next to it while we ran and got oil for it. He stayed with the truck, and us, for almost an hour, listening to the motor, looking under the hood, just being a decent, nice guy. It sorta restored my faith in humanity, just a least for the night.

Today is my friend, C.'s, 26th birthday and I'm suppose to go out with her later on in the afternoon before her party to check out her new apartment and then head with her to dinner with her gang, and I haven't heard a word from her all week! =P Guess I'm gonna have to call her in another hour or so, wake her up, and see what the deal is. I don't understand it though, no one wants to hang with my ass for MONTHS, and all of a sudden, I've got party invites all this month and then Tacoma and Portland with my twin, [ profile] isolabela and my friend Liv and I DON'T KNOW HOW TO HANDLE THIS SUDDEN POPULARITY. *grin* A lot of me wants to hunker down for the weekends and write obsessively with the co-conspirators, but I think the meds are working, and going out and doing social things doesn't seem so unappealing and crippling. *sigh* Am still hoping that it's not a late night tonight. I MISS MAH WIFEY! *clings to [ profile] aoibhe*
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

- My stomach is doing crappy today, randomly. *bitch!face*

+ It was a full day of worth today. Hells yeah for making a full day's pay for once. =P

- My throat hurts. ><

+ I put this new foam pad on my bed, and it is so fricking comfortable now. Is definitely helping with the aches and was getting really bad, waking up and being unable to move. I AM ONLY 26 PEOPLE. =P

- People keep making random comments to me and co-worker J. "Oh, you're best friends now, huh?" Dudes, we get along famously. We have the same sort of sense of humor, and about a billion random and hilarious inside jokes. Plus, she was the first friend I made at the lab when I started almost four years ago. You're just figuring out we're buddies NOW? *blinkblink* And how is it offensive? Weird people are weird.

+ We are now, officially, "BFFs 4EVAR!!!" They're just jealous of how cool we are.

+ SNOW IS MELTING. I hate snow. YAY FOR NO SNOW. \o/

+ I love my wifey, [ profile] aoibhe, and she knows why. ♥

+ I totally made a fool out of myself with my co-conspirators last night, but it was fuuuuuuuuun. Tired Wren is weird. *grin*

+ I also love my f-list, because you guys are FREAKIN AMAZING. ♥

All in all, I think the positives have it for the day. Much better than yesterday, when everyone was determined to piss on my good mood. =P (Zeus?!)

Still headachey. Still upset stomach. Still feeling crappy about...just about everything. =P Thanks to a crappy day at work and an interesting little chat with my manager. And while I can understand where she's coming from, the fact that it came out and I had no clue something was even wrong? That instantly made my head throb and my stomach churn. Guh. There were two things that made this day worth getting out of bed at all, and that was supersilly ficlet from da wifey this morning, and the Package For Mature Audiences Only from [ profile] secretchristine and [ profile] aoibhe. Frsrs, it made me laugh till I cried. Nice to know the ohana is looking out for my well-being. *gigglefit* I LOVE YOU GIRLS SO MUCH. ♥

But anyway, stolen from both [ profile] aoibhe and [ profile] xtinethepirate ♥♥♥

One little compliment can make you feel great. So give me a compliment, anything in the entire world, even that my shoelaces are pretty. Put this in your journal. Once you get some comments, put that entry in a memory or tag and when you are feeling down, just go to that entry and this will remind you how great you are.

Comments are screened as per meme "rules". Don't forget to post this in your lj when you're done so I can comment to you!! ♥
I experienced my first (and subsequent second) game of 'Pange Pong. It's like Beer Pong, only with champagne. ^^;; THE BUBBLES. ZOMG. After downing about a 3/4 of a bottle a piece, A., [ profile] isolabela, and I went down to see their college improv group. SO FUNNY. Even better when totally buzzed, let me tell you. =P

Train ride was slightly maddening on the way down to T-Town. For some reason, crossing things kept malfunctioning and crap was on the tracks, and we had to slow down and stop for about 30 minutes in total. Bah. I was so exhausted from not sleeping the night before (I'm hoping this isn't s a new thing I'm adding to my repertoire, as I did the same thing in December. ><) but still managed to keep awake, and mostly coherent (although the booze prolly didn't help that one =p) until midnight. YAY.

So am waiting for the twin to get home from work, and we shall walk over to get teriyaki (yayayay!) and then settle in for some serious slug-like behavior. Wifey! *pokes you* We be calling you. Have already talked about how much we love you. IT IS ALL GOING ACCORDING TO PLAN! <3

*type typetypetypetype typetype type type type typetypetype* <<-- is what I'm getting accomplished today, HEEEEEE *flops* HEEEEE!

SO EXCITED FOR TOMORROW. [ profile] isolabela, T-TOWN, THE TWINS TOGETHER! HEEE! Only one person could make this trip even AWESOMER THAN IT ALREADY IS, and someday, wifey o' mine, our Trifecta of Awesome will be all together. ♥♥♥ I am so packing and repacking. (There WILL be Zebra Cakes, correct? *gigglefit*)

At the wifey's urging:

Pick one word from each pair that you think describes me the best and comment with your choices. Then copy this and post it in your own journal to see how your friends view you.

(Feel free to miss any ones out that are too weird to consider. And to give NEITHER answers.)

* dominant or submissive
* logical or intuitive
* social or loner
* kinky or vanilla
* cute or sophisticated
* kitten or puppy
* warm flannel sheets or sleek satin
* leader or follower
* quiet or talkative
* spontaneous or planned
* teddy bear or porcelain doll
* hiking or window shopping
* tequila or vodka
* top or bottom
* bare foot or shoes
* jeans or slacks
* tender or rough
* aware or dreamy
* nerd or jock
* brains or brawn
* common sense or book smarts
So it took me close to a year of resisting but...*sigh* Hello, my name is Wren. And I love Criminal Minds. *grin* Have had the first three dvds of season 1 for a couple of weeks, and didn't break into it until yesterday in a fit of self-pitying ennui. OMG. ><;; I so love it. DAMN YOU, WIFEY. *shakes fist*

*curls up with moar dvds nao* My stomach is sick like woah. Again. PERFECT EXCUSE.

RIP Kim Manners ;_;
Despite only have two buttery nipple shots last night, I woke up feeling all headachey and kinda grumpy. ^^;; This is why I rarely drink the hard stuff, guys, I just have no tolerance. ^^;; *is a wimp* Hung out with my cousin and his friend last night at the party, and it was really fun, but was so exhausted so cut the night short around 11pm and we headed to our respective homes. I had truly bizarre dreams including one where I spent the whole time yelling at a co-worker who was pissing me off, and Obama (yeah, that one was BIZARRE O.o [ profile] aoibhe and I were at a White House press conference that went awry.) The night before, I had dreams about angrily sorting yarn whilst yelling. I think my brain is a strange, strange place. So needless to say, today might be a stay in pjs and be lazy sort of day. I have things to write and plot, and a striped Noro Silk Garden scarf to knit to the exclusion of all other knitting projects (read: the Shawl of Doom and more fingerless cuffs for belated xmas gifts. Oops? I agree with my knitting goddess, Stephanie Pearl-McPhee, that a scarf that is 1x1 ribbing and two row stripes should not even be at all this entertaining. But really? It so is. My fingers itch to knit it everytime they aren't preoccupied with typing...and even sometimes when they are. It does not make sense. Or, rather, maybe it does. Because the dye job on these yarns are SO LOVELY that it is immensely fun to watch as the colors shift with every row. *sigh* I also understand that this sounds a little...odd. Please, bare with me. This just means that this might someday be around the neck of one of you. Knitting loves company. ^_~)

Had to cancel one train ticket and order a new one, but my plan to take over WA with the twin, [ profile] isolabela, continues strong even after minor setbacks. Fear. Us.

Just as an aside, please go over to [ profile] foolsnotion and tell her how absolutely fabulous she is for offering and executing an adorable piece of art of my surly, but much loved, OC Lenore. It just makes me happy, yo. ^_________________^

I spent the day in the utter throes of creative jitteryness. I am so wired now, I can't hardly concentrate - which was lovely for work. It felt like it would never. freaking. end. But seriously, it's all I want to do tonight, is be creative and bug the wifey about it. *flops* It just...makes me happy - SO HAPPY - to have that back again. After so many freaking years of blah. <3

I spent the majority of my evening sitting on my kitchen countertop with my "baby" cousin (4 years younger almost to the day - I'm the 23rd of Dec, he's the 25th) and his girl friend (not girlfriend?) talking about, among other various things, 4Chan. For this? *bakes blame!cookies for [ profile] isolabela and [ profile] aoibhe* ^^;;;; But, I got a Anytime Rock Star Party invite, so there's that. *grin* I WILL RAWK IT.

I filed my taxes too, and AM ACTUALLY GETTING a refund! HELLS YEAH. I didn't expect one, really, since I got the stimulus check last spring. But nope. Am saving it for my June trip, methinks (although, I should totally put it on my credit card bill REALLY. Eh. The ohana is more important than silly bills any day. ♥ )
