I love Thursdays. I think they might be my favourite day.

My yarn was used in an award-winning item!  I would have to bow to [livejournal.com profile] bibliovixen here, as it was her amazing knitting and pattern skills that won the award, but I am so stoked that my yarn was a part of her success! 

(I did the dyeing, and the spinning.)
- Had a great weekend.  Much cavorting with everyone, including a trip to the bead store (I can hear some of you groaning even now...*grin*), a trip to Springwater, the fiber arts store, and out for steak at the Roadhouse in Centreville.  Awesome. 

- Not at work today or tomorrow.  ULTRA awesome.

- Got to spend some time creating.  Made a nifty (though I'm not sure I'll keep it the way it is) shawl pin, a felted 3D goose for my Mom, and this weird little artsy-fartsy felted bannerthing.  Knit some more on the hat of doom, which is rapidly approaching completion (and before that, a transfer to some circs.  Keep losing stitches off the ends of my dpn's.

- Went to the doctor this morning.  Apparently I have all the classic symptoms of sleep apnea.  I have a sleep study on the books- just have to schedule it. 

- I am home to watch the very first episode of the 35th season of Price is Right.  It's an all car (except for Plinko!) episode.  Hooray! 

- Waiting to hear from [livejournal.com profile] interminable about plans tonight.  He informs me that we have a reservation at Les Halles.  OMFG!  I have the best friends EVER!  I've wanted to go there forever!  GAH! 

- By the time I go back to work on Tuesday, I plan to have SOME space to work in the craft studio.  Heh...think it'll happen?
[livejournal.com profile] libba_bray writes these -gorgeous-, LUSH, seductive Victorian fantasy novels. Her heroine, Gemma, is a likeable, flawed, and truly realistic young woman. I bought the first book, A Great and Terrible Beauty, on a whim, and I dove for the second one the day it came out because I couldn't wait any longer to read the sequel.

Now, per her recent LJ post, they have been optioned for movies. I'll cross my fingers, because while there is a lot they could screw up, I can also see SO much potential in this. The settings are so rich, the action so clearly crafted, that I hope they are able to bring to life the books I loved, rather than someone's screenplay of the books I loved. I'm not even sure if that makes sense.

I can't wait for the third installment of the trilogy, even if it is the last we'll see of Gemma and her friends. And somewhere on my 200? MUST WATCH list will be A Great and Terrible Beauty.

HOORAY!
It's official!  We signed (okay, Stanley and Michelle signed) the contract and gave the guy a check today. 

WE'RE GETTING THE ADDITION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Invitations to the housewarming will follow!
OMG. 

Hi. 

I am so happy right now that it's just DISGUSTING. 

Serenity rocks.  Joss Whedon rocks.  But mostly?  Serenity ROCKS. 

I just...wow.  I have no words.  I think I might join the eternal sci-fi weenie club, and go see it again sometime this weekend. 

It ROCKS.
