I mostly worked on the Basketweave pullover this weekend. I'm almost to where I start binding off for the armholes on the front of it.
I admit, I'm getting a little bored with it right now. I might put it up for a while and work on something else.
I did also work some on the My Little Dalahast, but still am not done with the head. (At least it's "just" an Earth Pony, so once the head is done, I only have the ears left to do before the embellishments).
Also, there's apparently a brief preview of Ponies season 3 floating around. It sounds like there are a lot of Daria-Morgendorfer-in-pony-form characters coming up. (Or perhaps that's the effect of "King Somber," who is apparently the new villain.) Bonus: Pinkie Pie with night-vision goggles.
So Felix Baumgartner made his jump "from the edge of space" and survived. (I'm really, really glad he survived. I imagined it going very bad). My question is: did he successfully create a sonic rainboom? No, no he did not. (However, he broke the sound barrier....)
(I'm not going to link to any news stories; the first one I clicked on had VIDEO that autoplayed and would not let me shut it off. Not cool, ABC, not cool.)
HEH. So I am not the only one who had the "Sonic Rainboom" thought:
Also, apparently some news service claimed he broke the speed of light. Heh. So many "Captain, I dun' think she can take anny morre" jokes there.
I have to admit, I'm gratified when my judgment of a situation is agreed upon by others. I'm not the only one annoyed by having to salve particular egos and constantly give validation to a Certain Person even when I am not receiving that validation myself. And I guess I wasn't over-reacting.
And this was without my even bringing up the situation; it came up of its own accord.
I'm a little sad. My plans for the end of this week had to change (just shift by one day, but still). I'm getting better at being flexible but when stuff like this happens I often come out feeling like I always have to be the one who changes or who gives up stuff or whatever. (It was a situation beyond the control of my friend - something work related). Not sure what I will do with Thursday; I had half-thought of coming in to work on Friday after my day out but maybe now I won't work at all over break. I don't know).
And then I get afraid: what if the work-situation doesn't clear up, and she has to cancel totally? I mean, I can still go by myself, but that wouldn't be as fun, and I might be a lot more likely to say "Wharrgarrrble, that's too far" and not go.
I said at the start of the semester that I'd schedule something "fun" at least once a month and I have not been so good at that. Unless you count going to a larger marginally nicer grocery store than the local wal-mart "fun." It just seems stuff keeps coming up....stuff I have to do. You may tell yourself, this is not my beautiful house. (Sometimes, I just feel like this is so not the life I signed up for).
