I’ve been working on my square for the Pratchghan 2008, and although its nothing but a wee 6in by 6in square that I can do whatever I like with…. the task has been daunting. Just so you know, knitting an explosion is difficult (I’ve already redone it 3 times now, and still no luck)… you shall know no more than that! The idea was concocted by Ben, and it is an awesome idea- its just the execution that I am finding difficult.
By the way, I may start a dating service. Why? Here in Stephieface land I have mostly (okay… all) guy friends, the internets is really the only way that I know that other girls exist. I am asked constantly to fix my guy friends up, and I’d love to… if there were girls I knew somewhere. So ladies, if you are looking to meet up with a History major that currently attends Pitt, and can translate and conjugate latin, who likes most of the same things I do, and appreciates the value of a knitted rat… let me know (bonus, he likes kids enough to still want to come over to my house after having met my children [and having dealt with me throughout all of my pregnancies]… and he’ll hold babies….. willingly…. and not at arm’s length).
In other news, we’re still looking around for a new house.- trying to find one that is well within our price range. We’re still packing stuff that is not currently needed (like culottes and sprinklers) but we’ve run out of boxes. I discovered earlier this week that to get boxes from one Walmart I’d have to loom inside their store for a few hours, stalking the employess as they stock the shelves, then when they least expect it I’d have to snatch the box away and disappear with my now ill gotten gains. I am exaggerating slightly, it is that way but with less snatching and more maniacal laughter. Apparently they destroy the cardbox boxes immediately after emptying them. I thought that perhaps, like my old place of employ, they stacked them up in a bin until later in the evening when they would be crushed then….. and until then sat there unfolded in a chaotic stack. If any Pittsburghers reading this know of a secret awesome super ninja store that has an insane collection of cardboard boxes that I can have for free without having to stalk anyone- please let me know in the comments!
