Last night I had a post planned that contained a list of everything I was pissed off about. It was quite a list - shifting drugs often makes me cranky, and throw in a bad day on top of it, and you have, well, me, last night.
However, this morning, after a night of sleep with no nightmares (the night before had been BAD, damned drug withdrawl) and a morning of the baby and the cat behaving, all may not be right with the world, but things aren't terribly bad.
I'll try to reconstruct the list anyway, for amusement purposes.
I know I was mad at The Baby. I'd gone out yesterday - taking her along, of course - and she had refused to be helpful in any way. Wouldn't walk, wouldn't even STAND to make it easier to put her in her car seat. Then we get home and she spends the day standing in front of the TV watching cartoons. STANDING. Now that I think of it, I still want to kill her, because she's STILL doing it. Grrr.
And another thing I'm still irritated about is people who don't know crap, holding forth on stupid subjects and refusing to do research or face facts when they're slapped down in front of them. Enough said on that subject. While I'm at the 'stupid people' point in my tirade, if someone in this shithole government isn't held responsible for something, soon, I'm going to... I don't know, but it'll be bad. I think my congressman has quit opening my e-mails again.
It's getting warm out and for the second year in a row our child can't play outside because our yard is full of fire ants and no one anywhere seems interested in doing anything about it. In Hawaii the city used to come around and blast big nests when they were reported, in an effort to keep them under control. Charleston doesn't give a shit.
Anyway, I could go on for hours. (And I'm in a GOOD mood this morning!) So let's talk about something a bit less...annoying. Like YARN!
On the right, lace-weight Cotton Candy. On the left, a whole bunch of Purple Trainwreck. Including.... laceweight PT. I'm gonna have to charge more for it, though, because it took an hour to wind it out to that longer skein, and it's gonna take another hour to put it into something shipable.
And today, it's Mermaid Tail.
Including... some lace weight mermaid tail. And in the bowl is some laceweight for experimental purposes. I'm going to try doing graduated color on the stove, without burning the house down. Here's hoping it works. (Ha. It's much more likely I'll just destroy the yarn.)
I also bought a little bit of egg dye at the Easter sales yesterday. And I resisted the urge to buy candy. Good for me. But I did buy one other thing.
A bubble gun. It blows bubbles when you pull the trigger.
Next time the cat and the baby gang up on me, I intend to shoot them.
