Okay, did we get the day off for Halloween and no one told me? Or is everyone skipping meetings this morning?
11:14 AM – 31 Oct 11 via web
Could we please stop perpetuating this ridiculous fear mongering bullshit about poisoned Halloween candy?!
Minecraft – I’m digging it.
Yea! Pet wolves! Now we need a doghouse and a lot of pork chops.
Smooshed-face lion says,”Word of advice… Don’t give her money back.” Doesn’t seem relevant.
Glad I was sleeping like crap and got up a bit early. Forgot I had an earlier than normal meeting this morning. Phew!
And the sun goes down alone.
Song stuck in my head upon waking today: Don’t Worry, Be Happy by Bobby McFerrin. Good day ahead? We’ll see.
Mediocre coffee. Still coffee. Yea for coffee. Kick in, coffee; I need you.
Thinking how to get out of tonight’s ‘reception’ for the show tomorrow. Isn’t it punishment enough to have to attend & pretend to care?!
Everyone thought they were being served cheesecake. Turns out it was lemon custard pie. Very interesting expressions ensued.
No. It says, “I love my boxer” NOT “I love my boner.” Thought it was a pretty weird dog joke.
Home! Home for the weekend. Ah, the sweet comforts of home.
Okay, who wants to go to the Chocolate Indulgence at the Holiday Inn with me tonight?
Yaaaarrrr! The cantenna scours the waves again!
Motherfucking Jehovah’s Witnesses just rang my doorbell. Be ready for your turn, neighbors.
Ow! Damn hail!
Back to the crafting table. A skeleton shot off my iron booties. #minecraft
Thankfully my BlackBerry is shite for texting or it would be a conduit for my rage! RAGE. My. Dark. Fucking. Rage.
Half seriously picturing myself throwing my work cell against a wall, crushing it with my heel while singing for the blood of my coworker.
Playing Portal for the first time. Feel like a lab rat and I want cake.
Look at me still talking when there’s science to do…
Daily spam: “Do you want a prosperous future, grow in money, and pat on the back:)? Today only: We can assist …”

Hey, that documentation is good – who wrote it? I did? When the fuck did I do that? No wonder I like it.

Want to be downstairs sewing, but also really want to play Minecraft.
The first step is admitting you are powerless against the lure of Minecraft.
Step two is to play Minecraft.
Fuck you, you centered widget text.
Flight delayed, delayed, delayed a third time, all next flights CANX & will miss three appointments while stuck. The drinking starts now. Hello airport Pappadeux!
Pirate Punch, improving my fucking night. It does drink. Drink, it does.
Dear gods, I’d rather be drinking right now, too.
It finishes the work.
Song in my head upon waking this morning: The Future Soon by Jonathan Coulton. “..when a crazy cyborg wants to make you his robot bride..”
Home is the best place. It is wonderful here at home.
Have fun and be social, tonight at The Aches. Also, come back and drink all this beer we have. Show up at 1830 or whenever.
“Yes, everything sinks. Except chickens.”
“Next time you go above ground, grab some trees and kill some pigs.”
“Yeah, you spend a lot of time filling in Creepers divots.”
“No, slimeballs don’t have a purpose yet.”
Okay, that was fun, but now I’m tired.
So five hours later I must confess I am addicted to Minecraft.
Last minute, three day trip for the work; feeling a tad murderous towards my coworker.
Deeply sad to leave home today. And I was looking forward to the Art Walk tomorrow – there will be a printmaker’s showing.
Okay, Austin. Enough with the sun already. I get it, nice weather. Piss off now.
Austin airport busy with arrivals for SXSW. Lots of carefully constructed, casual-trendy looks. And cowboy boots.
Five turns of nothing. Nothing! Yeargh!
And tonight I sleep in my own bed again. Yea.
Don’t know what to do with myself. Maybe it should simply be bath time.
Oh yeah, relaxing bubble bath and a craft magazine. Much better.
Home is very good.
A new evil is born: Easy Cheese atop Pizza Rolls.
The old house is clean … enough.
Another beautiful, windy day in Cheyenne.
For some reason I suddenly want nice, frosty refreshment.
Welcome to our first annual Sofa Day. If you have pants on, you’re already an over-achiever on this day.
Yea! It has a moment ago been appraised that I am adequate. That works for me. Praise me for my adequacy!
? It’s a neighborly day in this beauty wood A neighborly day for a beauty ?
“Were you at the library when you did the gummy sex?”
Lessons learned tonight: take your nai lcare tips from lesbians, toasted ants taste like corn nuts.
Smoosh-face lion says it is past bedtime.
Very first Top Gun James H Harvey III just got off my incoming plane in DEN. Kinda awesome.
So Very Tired.
So, my day of ‘the work’ just took a wrong turn down a dark, smelly alley, got mugged, beaten and left bleeding in a Dumpster. Dammit.
I’m thinking “fuck you and your uptight, self-righteous bullshit” is not a proper response to some ‘Thanks for your understanding’ crap.
I see no hope of lunch. Let’s see how long this banana will hold me over.
You know what really improved my mood today? Blowing off my site report and playing Minecraft in the airport food court. Woot.
Song stuck in my head upon waking the second time this morning: Desperado.
We watched The Road because my husband claimed it was a comedic romp of a movie. Not fooling anyone, huh?
Husband asked me to use grocery list App he’s been using. As no food in house, I eagerly agree. His list so far? 7-Up and tortillas. Sheesh.
Is fucking cold in my house! & outside & etc. Fuck! Going to stock up on cocoa & toddy stuffs tonight. Maybe have party for the body heat?

Kid themed snow shovels; this is a good idea. Let’s play clear the sidewalk!
It’s Groundhog Day …. again.
Well what if there is no tomorrow? There wasn’t one today!
‘That expense report you worked for hours to submit yesterday? We changed your code. You must retract & delete report & make a new one.’
Poor design all around. Good job, fuckwits.
Tweeples, please tell me we are going to have some social fun today or tomorrow!?! I need drinks, chatter & mild merriment &/or amusement.
Look at this snow!
Covered in paint, and not the fun, creative kind. The tedious, dull house kind.
Today, I am glad I’m working at a desk in a temperature controlled office, instead of on a dirty server room floor w/ frigid air in my face.
Whipping, howling wind here tonight, bringing in chill. Complements the strange moon last night, a cheshire cat grin glowing from the dark.
Hmmm, risk a sushi place with half/half or just walk across the street for mexican … again. Hey, Texas, some variety would be nice!
Reviews!! Half good, half bad REVIEWS! Sheesh.
Life is too short to have bad sushi.
I have good coffee to start. Good news last night. Maybe this day will continue in a desirable fashion.
When a story ends in paperwork and tears I think it is okay to fudge the ending. Storyteller’s prerogative for creative license.
Low-pressure, social fun, snacks, drinks and pizza at The Arches tonight. We’ll unlock the door at 1830. We can play show and tell, too!
Only three hours until the fun begins at The Arches. Are you ready?
It’s a zombie hootnanny.
Sir, is there a bus stop nearby? Sir? Excuse me, sir, you seem to be …. oozing. Aaaaak! My ear!
Today I am glad I have the cold, filthy dirty floor of a loud equipment room to sit on while I do the work. … Wait. No. That’s not it.
Home again, home again, jiggety jig.
It updates the spreadsheet.
Hello, three day weekend, my dear darling. Let’s have fun.
Thank goodness my top thread snapped. Tired.
Catching a hangnail on a pillow is much more wake-longevity effective than an alarm clock.
One top finished. I am behind schedule.
Second top finished. Catching up but still behind schedule. Gretchen and I will be up stitching late tonight.
Argh! Stitch wrong sides together – go back 8 spaces. You also skip your next turn.
Piecing the back = quilt bonus points.
Two backs completed. Hungry, tired, must work in the morn, can do no more tonight.
Anyone have a couple hundred curved safety pins I can borrow for a day? Can’t find mine, probably in a box … somewhere.
Graaargh! In the time it will take to clean up the mess I’ve made looking for the pins I could’ve basted both the damn quilts!
Now at the stage where I vow to never do it again.
Oh dear gods, how did Achy-Breaky Heart ever get into my head!?!
Enjoying the chilly winter night and that bright moon in the sky.
Doing the work. Still doing the work.
Fuck the work, I’m going to have a drink and retire to the basement for a few hours!
Hey, that is some serious looking snow starting down out there!
Always enjoy the ‘shake until frothy’ part. But once, the lid popped off & my moon plant’s leaves never recovered from the sticky explosion.
Drinking, sewing and rotary cutting. What could go wrong?
Hey, it is February! Where are those little Girl Scouts with their cookies?!?
There is a thick, fluffy blanket of winter wonderland outside.
Oh dear. That wasn’t a squeeze top lid – it was just a funny looking lid. Good thing this recipe is experimental.
My oven has translation issues. I set it at 350F, but it hears 500F. If these cupcakes turn out edible it will be a tiny, kitchen miracle.
Spooky just scared herself and had a hissing & spitting fit … at her reflection in the window.
Thanks, stupid BlackBerry, for suggesting ‘warbingo’ instead of ‘warning’.
Oooh, the party is over. Not feeling up to snuff this first day back to the work schedule. Eyelids unwilling to stay open and help me out.
So often, I am overwhelmed by anger and frustration at our politicians. This is why I love Jon Stewart. http://is.gd/k2h4k
No, I am not a “control freak”, but I am a control enthusiast.
Bright, boundless optimism is always a good starting place in any project, otherwise one would never start.
Hey, @shplinkhimself , I hope you’re okay. The solicitor at my door was wearing your glasses. Nearly let him in based on that first glance.
@shplinkhimself What? We didn’t discuss music, just energy efficient windows, but if he comes back I’ll knock him out & we can go from there.
I need a video gaming recliner chair with heat, massage thingies and built in subwoofers. Perhaps “need” is not really accurate.

Just learned that many decades ago, The Arches housed a “madame”. Excited to learn details!
I found a pine nut on the stove and I ate it.
Having a freshly bad day. Knots in stomach.
Sorrows drowned, paradigm shifted. Planning to be done in the morning. Or at least sometime tomorrow. After noon, perhaps. With coffee.
Yea for juvenile astronomy humor. Up later, fart jokes!
So much for a white black tiebreaker.
Netflix is possessed and fucking with me. It added the “Babies” documentary to my queue. WTF.

Woke up homesick today.Also wearing my Twitter bird earrings. I apologize in advance if this combination leads to numerous simpering Tweets.
Being forced to spend time with salesmen damages my small hopes for humanity. Misanthropic thoughts ensue.
I am on the verge of choking on the bullshit.
Just nod and smile, nod and smile.
End, day, end!! I’ve had it with you!!
The day is finally ended and I am reading a novel, alone at last away from the work jackals, at peace for a bit.
My adjacent hotel room neighbors are having a grand, X rated time of it. Considering sending them a bottle of champagne or a dessert.
I did not behave so well yesterday. After sushi and a novel, I am feeling much better. Today should be comparatively quiet.
I am partly free! I have the whole evening and mostly two days to explore Portland (with friends) and maybe even get some sleep finally.
Wine, in a Target. So weird.
With 7 hours of sleep, I feel good. Like I could rule the world. Or at least Tigard.

Last day of over-long work trip. Hard to stay fake-focused. Zoning out after three minutes each time. Can’t wait to get home.

12:39 PM Aug 3rd from web
Buffing, sealing, baking, polishing, not getting semi-toxic substances in the mac & cheese. Such a tough day!

Some crafts done-ish, a couple done. Feeling pretty good about that. I will sleep in peace tonight and maybe catch up my blog tomorrow … ?

Crafty progress: 3/16. I will not panic. I will not panic. I will not panic. Who am I kidding – I am already panicking.
No, it will be fine!!

Crafty progress: 4/16. Better. Not good enough, not done, but better.

Time to pick up my newly windshielded car! Should be able to get a few months enjoyment out of it before Winter comes to crack it again.

Afraid my latest big crafty idea looks so good I’m going to have to go ahead and do it. Damn me.

Great craft night & got good work done. As soon as I get some packaging & presentation done I can update the swap progress count. Woot!

Slept in for two hours. It was great. I dreamt about getting many chaotic people onto airport shuttles. Maybe I’m recovered from work now.

Halfway through beading portion of project, but just over halfway through tube of beads &it was the last tube in the store, on clearance.
7:06 PM Aug 9th from web
Phew! I’m going to have enough beads to finish. Now I just need a few hours extension of the day and it will all be okay.

Passengers exiting the Nashville Airport are greeted by live country music and off to the side, a nun in white. Not together, I think.

WTF Twitter??!!? Twitter ate my Tweets this morning. Dammit. I can’t be clever again, it was hard enough being clever once today.
12:20 PM Aug 11th from web
The work is not going; it is stuck. I am completely stressed out about getting my swap items done, but need to be home to craft the stuffs.
9:17 AM Aug 12th from web
The work is a hot mess, as they say in the south, and I am stuck in the middle. Doesn’t really make for good Tweets, I know.
1:43 PM Aug 12th from txt
Ah! This is much better.
9:00 PM Aug 12th from txt
So much better now. I’m good. I feel better now. I feel better than James Brown. I feel good. How do you feel?

Cheyenne: Art & Craft fair today from 0900-1500 at 2301 Central in the Barrett Building lawn. Vendors, music, food, fun. Can’t wait to see it this time around.
9:09 AM Aug 15th from web
Art & Craft fair was good. Nice selection of vendors. The rain fits were driving people off, though.
11:11 AM Aug 15th from web
Moving day! Don’t forget Melvin the giraffe.
3:06 PM Aug 15th from TwitPic
Not enough time at home! Still have to do laundry so I can pack for the next week of work and haven’t got any more swap pieces done yet.
8:42 AM Aug 16th from web
Gretchen has broken her tension disc spring while I’m 25% through a sewing project. She was due for maintenance anyway, no delaying now.
12:52 PM Aug 16th from web
Just trimmed Spooky’s claws. She did not enjoy it as much as she enjoyed French Onion dip on a potato chip. Life can be sour for kitties.
1:35 PM Aug 16th from web
Now I have proof that I need both of my sewing machines. My project will not be delayed due to mechanical failure. I am all that is crafty!!
2:45 PM Aug 16th from web
My 1,000th Tweet!! Crafty swap progress: 5/16. Doing good.
4:51 PM Aug 16th from web
Craft swap progress: 6/16 I’m hoping to reach the halfway count before I have to stop to pack for the work (in hot, miserable FL) this week.
6:38 PM Aug 16th from web
Woot! Up to 7/16 on my craft swap projects. I have hope of finishing on time!
9:15 PM Aug 16th from web
Ah well, didn’t quite make it to my crafty goal. If I survive a week in FL I can come back home and finish up.

Sitting, stuck, waiting on the work. Unable to do other work. Forcing me to consider the current direction of my life. Not so good.

Cool thing about dining in Florida – they put the tip percentage breakouts at the bottom of the receipt. Nice.

A sudden downpour in Bonita Springs as leaving the restaurant to walk back to the hotel means I am SOAKED! Like being thrown in a pool.
5:32 PM Aug 18th from web
Sitting on the floor, doing the work that I can do. Not enough. Now for the waiting.
8:00 AM Aug 19th from web
And more waiting. Trying to plan a tiny beach excursion and possibly a trip to a bookstore. Devouring books too quickly on the plane rides.

Obvious photo: ocean.

More obvious pics: coconuts on tree.

It is amazing how fast the ocean wind will tangle long hair. Or even medium hair. Especially when the hair is still on your head.

Thus, with sand in my pockets, ocean in my shoes, shells in my purse & chlorine up my nose, I close out this night & wish you sweet dreams.

Slick thinks I should mention that Gretchen is my awesome and beloved Pfaff sewing machine. Yes, Gretchen is the name of my sewing machine.
1:14 PM Aug 21st from web
Gretchen is home! She’s repaired (tension disc), cleaned, delinted and oiled. Ready to help me finish up some of my swap projects today.
3:52 PM Aug 21st from web
Craft swap progress: 8/16. I have mostly small items and one medium item left to finish, so it should work out.

Just lost tiny, metal bead. Was the last one in the project. Must find it to finish or take apart whole thing & remake. Dammit! Where is it?
8:10 PM Aug 21st from web
Searching the floor yielded three delica beads, one seed bead, some cat hair and a 3.25″ floppy disk (?!?). Tiny, metal bead still MIA.
8:17 PM Aug 21st from web
OH SWEET FUCKITY FUCK! WHERE IS THAT DAMNABLE BEAD!!!!
8:23 PM Aug 21st from web
Further search yield: teensy plastic heart-shaped rhinestone, hornet wings (an older project) & a small, silver sequin. Need to clean more.
8:37 PM Aug 21st from web
Bead search FAIL. Deconstructing project now. Dammit.

High fever. Battling my boss’s attempt to kill me through germ warfare. Would have been easier if he’d just fire me. Would feel better.

Craft swap progress: 14/16. If I stop Tweeting, you may find me passed out on my workshop floor, succumbed to this damnable Boss Flu I have.
8:01 PM Aug 28th from web
(For reference, Boss Flu is what I named the very bad bronchitis I got from my boss, which turned into walking pnemonia before I got better.)
For once I’m glad my workshop is too hot & has no breeze. Great place for me to be during a shivering chill fit of the Boss Flu.

Crafty swap progress: 15/16 I’m on the very verge of finishing; also on the very verge of being finished off by this sickness. Going to bunt.

Swap is SENT! Largely thanks to Slick who nearly had to carry me as well as the box to the post office. Now for lots of napping, juice, etc.
