Hello, bbs. I hand charted the Star Trek Insignias for cross stitch, and I would like some feedback. Below the cut are the stitched up patterns and the pictures they are based on with a little explanation. )
So, I have a journal at which I am posting things I've made in the areas of cross stitch, jewelry and maille.

Only one entry so far. Feel free to friend or ignore at will.
Niki expects me to be happy for eight days, and who am i not to oblige? I will, however, be cheating and doing two days in this post because I guarantee I will forget by the end of the week.

Yesterday, aka Day 1:

-Last day of work for over a week, FTW!
-Matt, Miss Kathy and I exchanged gifts last night, because they left this morning. Matt and FL Jenn went in together and bought me the special edition Ice Blue Nintendo DS Lite. Hooray! Of course, I already knew this because my mom has a big mouth. So, when I was buying Jenn's gift at Toys R Us I bought two games! And Miss Kathy gave me a $50 Wal-Mart card, so I went out and got a third.
-We went to see Abigail Breslin at Candlelight Processional. She was adorable!
-Mike fixed my passenger door lock! (Niki, I used one of your Magic Cookie Bars as payment, also a low cut shirt.)
-But the best part of the day was Matt and Miss Kathy opening their presents from me! I made Miss Kathy some earrings that she adored! And I made Matt a gold-filled box chain bracelet. And I found a cookbook at Half Price Books while I was in Texas that he lost several years back! I think it truly is better to give.

Today, aka The Deuce:

-I've had the house to myself since Matt and Miss Kathy left.
-I'll be making Date Roll as soon as I'm done with this post....mmmmm...Date Roll...
-Today has been pretty uneventful. But I'm happy to be alive!
-Also, I'm having Niki's chocolate chip cookies for dinner...I guess I should see if I have any milk, or I'll have to run to Publix. SPEAKING OF PUBLIX...NEW CHRISTMAS COMMERCIAL! (Stupid YouTube doesn't have a good link yet...) It takes second place behind the Valentine's Day cake!
1) Show Mom pictures of the snow last night (UGUISE! SNOW!)
2) Fill out really reduntantly long forms for new dentist.
3) Go over new YES content for tomorrow (I'm so screwed if I end up having to facilitate).
4) Go to the bathroom.
5) Catch up on LJ, Facebook and YAD.
6) Get a nosebleed (that's been my favorite so far).
7) Not eat lunch at Pappasito's, since not in Houston. (We'll see how long I can hold out...I have a few more goldfish).
8) Repack toiletries into approved quart sized bag. Mine was the right size, but falling apart.
9) Work on Mom's Christmas present.
10) Wish I had told my manager I needed Friday for travel.
11) Wonder how long to wait before calling in for tomorrow.

Had I known...I would have just one-wayed a car and driven to Houston. Harumph.
centerspire: ([sw] Seriously. Bad. Choices.)
In celebration! New Clone Wars tomorrow!

I've had a sort of sucky week, mostly PMS (and people pissing me off) related, so let's focus on Star Wars! I was thinking about going at 1201 tonight, but that might interfere with my Olympics fever, so I'll see the first show tomorrow!

Speaking of Olympic fever...RAJ AND SASHA! USA! USA! USA! I am so proud of the way they stepped up (and the way David cheered for them like the awesomest big brother in the world!)! I hope Sasha wins a metal for that pommel horse routine...it is amazing! It also totally amazes me what a different mood it was for the girls' team after winning silver. I guess because they had a chance of winning the gold, where the boys really didn't (barring two teams self destructing).

I'm working on my mom's birthday present now. I was trying to get the mammoth cross stitch finished, but had some setbacks, so I'm making her a maille bracelet (and maybe a necklace, not matching). I'll post pictures later.

So, in conclusion, SW, USA, and CM! Best weekend ever.

Hey [livejournal.com profile] abigail89 and [livejournal.com profile] snarky_devil3!!! Remember this post? Your goodies are on their way! Excepting one thing, I need your new address, Lu! (Comments are screened or you can email kcclights at hotmail ETA: for some reason, the comments won't screen, so just email me...sorry!) Sorry it took me so long! I slid in under my 365, though! Yay!

I'm bored.

So, I called-in sick today because last night, just as I was getting into bed with a raging headache, Keith (FL Jen's roommate) called me over to their house. He's had a cracked wisdom tooth for a little over a week and last night was the worst of the pain. So of course, Jennie was at work. But, I sat with him until Jen got home around 1, then promised I would help today because if the pain was as bad as last night, she was going to have some work cut out for her. Well, three teeth, one grocery and pharmacy run (for me), and naps (for everyone) later, I'm bored. Keith and Jennie are still sleeping and I'm wide awake. I have to run to the pharmacy again for more gauze and ibuprofen, but...not much else to do. I wish I had my computer, I'd make Uncle BAG icons. Zzzz. Halp!

Maybe I'll work on my mom's cross stitch! (Wishful thinking...)

Luckily, my last post has distracted me, a lot!
Because certain people are in no way a bad influence on me *coughcough[livejournal.com profile] lyssiecough*, and [livejournal.com profile] sidekickjunkies has become extremely helpful with the hints as of late, I present to you, in all its glory BACK PORN ON MY PHONE!!! )

Life just doesn't get any better.
How often is the answer to the question..."What did you tonight?"...made a necklace and watched sumo wrestling?

I'm guessing not very often.

Am exhausted...home in 15, then straight to bed.
Have checked about three things off the to do list...laundry is in progress, all photos have been pulled out of trunk for sorting, took pictures of new Galactic Heroes, mom's birthday present is complete (YAY!). But, still in pajamas...I'm not a miracle worker, people. I was going to go to Target and JoAnn's (and probably DTD to look for more galactic heroes), but it's intermittently pouring and sunny, and I don't want to get caught in pouring. Maybe when Matt gets off work.

Mom's B-Day present (glass and cat's eye) )

Early B-Day for me (hematite and garnet) )
