So I went from not having much to do to having all sorts of stuff I want to do. This happens from time to time.
I have a bunch of CD’s I’ve bought in last year here and there that I need to burn to my iPod. Lots of 80′s and rockabilly. I will be finding out where I put them tonight and maybe start that project. I want to make some new music lists especially since I am allowed to listen to my iPod at work and I go faster when I have it on. Sorting clothes is actually kinda fun when you are groovin to your music of choice. I blame my co-worker Viking for influencing me over to the ear-bud side. Ear-buds. I have a new set from Sean and they are tiny hedge hogs. Totes cute. I’ve received several compliments on them. ((Thanks Hunny!))
I have a slew of Dr.Who seasons that I am getting together for my Sister. I also need to have another Dr. Who night so my Mom and I can catch up some more with the show. I enjoyed Christopher Eccleston, but have also quickly fallen for David Tennant. I have a feeling as I go along I will love each Dr. for his own portrayal. I’m also finally getting many of the internet memes and references so yeah I’m becoming a Whovian for sure I have my SISTER to thank for that one.
I think I need to have a craft day and camp out at a coffee shop and see if anyone would be interested in showing up to help me put some of my brooch flowers together. I need to check my supplies and make sure I have enough stems for all the jewelry. I may wait till January but maybe not. It wont hurt to have it done early especially if I need to fill out the bouquet some more. I was going to try and mix in some silk flowers but I may just look for some silk filler greenery and have just the brooch flowers. We’ll see how that all comes together. Pics for sure as I go along
I just checked out four recently released books from the library:
- Kiss the Dead – Laurell K Hamilton
- Downpour – Kat Richardson
- Seawitch – Kat Richardson
- Touch of the Demon – Diana Rowland
- Biting Bad – Chloe Neill
I will be needing to read them all. Let us not forget the Claude Simon book I just added from Seans stack of Nobel Prize winner books that he is reading and I also have 9 other books that I need to finish.
- The Complete Book of Knitting – vintage work
- How and Why: A do it yourself Guide
- How to Survive the End of the World As We Know It
- HATE THE GAME
- Democracy Matters
- Offbeat Bride (I can’t believe I still haven’t finished reading it but I kinda got caught up in doing my own thing LOL)
- The Scavengers Manifesto
- The Borgias and Their Enemies (I’m starting it over and reading it all the way through – it’s jam packed with people and drama)
My side table next to the couch is actually now a book tower. I WILL be reading these all. I just need to start putting time to it each night
I’ve also been tinkering around with my knitting stuff and I feel like I’m moving back into the “gotta knit” mentality. I will be starting that up again too.
Sean and Anna have gotten me into Magic the Gathering card game and I have two decks but only playing one of them currently. I’m working on a third deck and have been nerding out with logging them into this online data base. I kinda lost track though and I think *THINK* I need to scrap the current data base and start again with logging them all in. I asked Sean how one knows if they have collected the entire series and he told me there are numbers listed at the bottom of the card. They’re pretty small and I haven’t noticed them before. NOW I want to get a binder and collect all the cards aside from having decks made from them to play the game. Oh boy. Now do I only want to log the Silver, Gold and Brass cards or do I want to log every single one? *embraces my geekgirl self*
Holy crap. I just saw James Spader on tv doing a commercial for some new show called The Blacklist. It’s a new show but he doesn’t look like he looks in my head when I hear his name. I hear “James Spader” & I see a montage of him in Pretty In Pink, Stargate & The Secretary. I’m in denial of his aging and I’m OK with that.
While out with my Mom yesterday we made some good finds at Half Price Books. Mom got a whole bunch of $1 books and some more movies to add to her collection (it’s HUGE) and I found seasons 2, 3 & 4 of BUFFY the VAMPIRE SLAYER. $6 each. I was not going to pass them up at that price. A very good investment After I finish working on Dr. Who I’m going to see about getting all the Buffy episodes onto my laptop for easy viewing I’m excited.
OMG EXCITED! I am maintaining my weight loss and I am now able to wear my Buffy t shirt that I haven’t fit into in the last 13 years It’s even loose a little bit. One more pound to loose and I can start working on my next weight loss goal. I’m thinking about my wedding dress and because I was between sizes at the time of purchase I did get the next size up. I think I’ve lost weight since then and I’m working on toning up so I may need to make a consultation appointment with a dress shop and see what they say about how it’s fitting me now and possible options for tailoring once I get closer to time. It’s a simple tea length dress no pleats or fancy anything so I’m thinking if anything I can have them put a corset insert in the back if needed but I’m hoping to just keep it simple. We’ll see. It’s kinda funny because when my sister got married I had ordered my maid of honor dress and then got diagnosed with Diabetes and got healthy and lost weight. So I paid for a super plus size dress, then paid twice more to get it tailored down (twice). ugh. This time I got back in balance lost some weight and I’m being steady with it but it looks like I may be down a bit more in inches in the next six months. At this point it’s just important to me that I am consistent with my weight loss and then maintain closer to time. I don’t feel that this will be a problem.
I also want to get some goodies sent out to my mom in Georgia and some sent to my Sister and her family. I like sending out goodies. I also have a scarf to finish. I’ve talked about it before – it’s still waiting for me to finally finish it. I CAN NOT let another December pass. I can doo eet. I CAN DOO EET.
I have a tumblr where I post stuff I find. Mostly it’s stuff I see at work but also stuff that I get up to or come across when I’m out and about. I’ve started putting stuff in a queue to post at later dates. I <3 this feature. I can gather a bunch of pics up and then space em out. This works much better for me.
I’m looking forward to the rest of this year and especially next year. I still need to decide on a date. Sean is ready when ever. I still need to get some stuff together but I’m starting to SQUEE about it randomly during my day. I’m SO happy
That’s about all for tonight.
