What the?!?!?!?!

While it’s nice that Blogger and Facebook move forward and make changes, and change is good and all that crap, I REALLY wish they’d stop changing for a bit.

Let me catch up for crying out loud.

I’ve just gone and deleted a few of my posts by mistake.  I was in the “draft” area deleting old items that were never going to be posted.

Somehow I managed to end up in the “posted” area and deleted two posts before I realized where I was…

There is no way to recover deleted posts, but I do have all my posts sent to my email, so I went there to make sure I didn’t get rid of anything earth-shattering.

Just a post about ugly celebrity feet and ZipCar.

I think you all can live without them, especially since I’m too lazy to redo them.

God only knows what I’ll do if I go and try to fix something.

I’m just hoping I don’t mess up the rest of my blog just by posting this… sigh.

Me and my big mouth…

This is what happens when you are stupid enough to not start on time, then rush, and then have the balls to brag that things are going along GREAT JUST GREAT!

And then you publish it on the internet.

You mess up the pattern and don’t notice until 3 rows later.

THREE LONG ROWS OF 130+ stitches.

And it wasn’t a simple enough thing for me that I could just let a stitch go, go down a bit and fix the mistake.  I don’t do well with that process to begin with…  If I did that, it would just be better to frog and start over because it would all be a big fat yarny mess.

So just spent almost the entire knitting time since I bragged about how well things were going, tinking*.

Rinkety tinkety tink. 
The yarn ball fell in the sink. 
The knitter went skating, instead of just waiting,
and busted her butt in the rink.

(Makes no sense whatever, I know. It just popped into my head.)

So… Sorry Sis, you’ll have to wait a few extra days for your knitterly item.  There’s an envelope coming to Mom’s house by Saturday.  Enjoy your gift card in the interim.

*Definition of Tink:
Tink is the term used by knitters to mean unknitting or knitting backward. Tink is actually knit spelled backward.

When you notice a mistake in your knitting either in the row you are currently working on or the row you just finished working, the easiest way to fix it is to tink back to the problem stitch and start over.

It is not recommended that you tink over several rows because it takes a long time and is very nerve-wracking.

Also Known As: Unknitting, backward knitting

More like Winter WTF?!?

Not much to say here except that there has been a whole bunch of SUCK going on…as in lots of little sucky things have happened to add up to one giant HOOVER.  And from what I’ve been reading in other blogs, I’m not the only ones who has had a Hoover sort of week.  WTF?!?

Whatever.

It is over now – so far as I know.

I’ll take it.

I won’t take the daily afternoon hot flashes though.  Mother nature can have those back.

What.Ever.

So tomorrow is the “annual inspecting of the apartments”.

What have I done for the last few days or nights when I’ve had free time?

Knit.

Road my bike with Spencer.

Played a stupid computer game.

Some would say I’m not ready for inspection (like me, for instance).

I don’t really care.  The place is clean and I’ll shift the clutter around into the stacks where it should go and will end up anyway.  It’s mostly in boxes right now, so it’ll be easier than it sounds.

A few signs saying “Donate” and “Back to storage” on each of the respective stacks and I’m done.

Although the “Back to storage” is really “still need to go through” as I do not intend to put anything back into storage.

But the inspectors don’t need to know that right now.
