3 Day Weekend Goodness
Friday, March 23, 2007
That's right it's finally here... Thursday! I have tomorrow off and we're heading into the city for VAST and shopping fun! By we, I mean myself, Grim, our friend Laramie and possibly our friend Steve. -=does a dance=- I am beyond excited. I can't wait to be there, and this time without a hellish cold! We've got our bags all set and we'll hopefully be out of the house by 11:30 or 12:oo. We're only staying overnight but I know I will enjoy myself. Of course I have made it more than abundantly clear that someone needs to show me to the knitting stores. Everyone gets such a kick out of my yarn fetish.

Anyways, I haven't written in a while. So it's time for an update. My birthday went very well. There were a couple of spots but nothing terrible. . My boss and coworker took me out for lunch at Ruby Tuesdays. Apperantly they had already tipped the waiter off that it was my birthday. So after I ate a huge hamburger they suprised me with cake. -=giggle=- I was definately stuffed. Then the boss let me go home early. I went directly to Michael's to spend the gift card they got me. I ended up getting more Lionbrand black yarn for my poncho and some Peaches and Cream yarn for the April Showers themed along on Get Stitchy. Then I went to knitting group like normal. I love being around those guys. They always make me laugh. Grim realized he didn't have the stuff he needed for a cake so he improvised...

Cookies and Cream Ice Cream... My favorite!! -=giggle=- Different, yes but effective and sweet. He really wanted me to still be able to blow out my candles. Wednesday, work as usual and then afterwords my favorite past time. Going to the movies! We went and saw Zodiac. Good movie, even if I did know who and what happened with the killer. Worth seeing but I seriously overdosed on buttery popcorn. I ended up passing out on the couch with a very terrible stomach ache. Blegh. Oh forgot to mention I recieved these beautiful flowers on Wednesday from my mother/brother/her boyfriend.

I love flowers! I can't wait for my other orders to finally come so I can post pictures. I have a genuine corset arriving in the mail in the next couple of weeks. I won a kick ass pair of boots off ebay. I am still waiting to hear a price about the Scarry Merry knitting needles. I also ordered a Get Stitchy tank top. I know I am a dork stop laughing now. -=giggle=- Tonight, we dedicated to getting things done around the house. My chest is a little congested so I wanted to relax so I didn't get all yucky feeling tomorrow. That's all I can think of right now really. Oh, I don't know if I posted about it, but I am a mod on Get Stitchy now! -=does a dance=- Fun Fun!!

    Awesome birthday! Sounds like you had a lot of people who loved you. LOL. Oh, and the zodiac killer is a true story. In reality, no one knows who the killer was. It's one of those great cold case files. They have guesses and suspects, but in truth they don't know. But, they either believe the guy has stopped or he died. Either way, he's no where to be found.

    Love the cake. That's my kind of cake!
