whatta weekend (not quite)

Posted in knitting, movie review, quizzes, weekend at 12:02 pm by Marise Phillips

ugh. i’ve been in bed for 36 hours straight.

i forced myself to go out to J’s friend Ian’s birthday dinner on Friday nite, a dinner at which we arrived late and were therefore obligated to sit at different tables, and at which i knew only three people out of the entire gathering… not fun when i wasn’t feeling well 😦 fortunately, the people at my table were very nice and we got along perfectly well. but boy, was i ready to head home and crash.

yesterday, i did very little besides sleep the entire day, with the cats serving as furry hot water bottles. j was even sicker than i. and seeing that we were supposed to spend the day doing errands to get ready for a party that i had actually really been looking forward to (as opposed to the dinner on friday), we did not get a single thing done. besides sleeping. no costume making, white elephant finding, bacon-wrapped date broiling, no driving over and pre-partying… none of it. BOOOOO.

at about 9pm, though, i was sick of sleeping and woke up to watch Bad Santa on DVD, which was quite funny. i knitted some of my ribbed pale brown alpaca scarf, as well. and successfully made a felted join, thanks to crazy aunt purl’s helpful photo directions!

i woke up this morning to a huge thunderstorm, a leaking bedroom window and two scared kitties. luckily, the storm has subsided somewhat at this point. but, still. eek! the frame of our kitchen window is also starting to rot out. times like these, i actually don’t mind not being a homeowner (ok, i do own a condo, but it’s 1000 miles away and, therefore, not exactly “home” 😉

then, I got curious to see what kind of princess i was…
