Two Steps Back

I toyed with several introductions to this post, but I think that I just need to come out and say i t. I am looking for a new job. As of Monday, I am unemployed. I loved my job, but for reasons that I do not want to get into, I was let go. This… Continue reading Two Steps Back



Okay, so last week got off to kind of a rocky start. Thank you all for your lovely kind words: Teeritz, Spiderwebz, Rob, Bill, and Patrick. I do have bouts of depression (not enough to actually get diagnosed as clinically depressed, but last year was the longest episode of it I've had in a really… Continue reading Reboot


The Quiet Ones: A User’s Guide

1. Yes, I am quiet by nature. This means I don't tend to engage in idle chit chat. You see, I believe that words have meaning, and I prefer to actually be saying something when I use them, rather than discussing things no one really cares about, like the weather. 2. I like people, but… Continue reading The Quiet Ones: A User’s Guide


Cat v. Mouse

I had no idea Hermes could dedicate this much attention to anything but sleep. He spent over three hours last night staring at the underside of our fridge because I suspect a mouse was hiding under it. He stared at it so long, in fact, that he forgot to wake me up at 2:30 the… Continue reading Cat v. Mouse


Treking through the lost month, burried in work. Please send knitting and novels.

I think I lost October. And my camera. So I can't take any pictures for you of my beautiful sweater back that is now about three inches from finished, or of the stack of dishclothes I'm crocheting, or the socks I'm knitting. I also can't coerce mom into modeling her sweater for the camera, though… Continue reading Treking through the lost month, burried in work. Please send knitting and novels.

Lamest excuse for missing class EVER

But at least you know it has to be true. Because if I was just going to ditch, I’d make up something like, “My great aunt Gertrude got in a sky diving accident and I had to go to her funeral in Finnland,” not, “I couldn’t find a place to park.” I don’t get it.… Continue reading Lamest excuse for missing class EVER


Yay! No More Pain!

Thanks to my wonderful mother, a former OT, my knee no longer hurts. I guess I've been a bad girl, letting my quads get weak, so my knee cap decided to go for a little walk around the block without me. My mom has the same problem from time to time, so she popped it… Continue reading Yay! No More Pain!



Does anyone know where I can trade in my body for a slightly newer, more gently used version (and preferably ten pounds lighter? Maybe with better skin and hair that's an actual color)? See, this past week, my allergies attacked with a vengeance. The problem with Ohio is that it doesn't have allergy season. You… Continue reading Gimp


Hey, Look Over There! Knitting!

I present you with: A very exciting photo of 3/4 of a stockinette sleeve. Ooh, aah. Have you ever seen anything as interesting? I ❤ sarcasm, by the way. Just in case you didn't notice. So what is going on in CrazyLand? Well, for starters our kitchen is getting redone by our landlord, who wants… Continue reading Hey, Look Over There! Knitting!
