Clean Shirts are Overrated

Thursday, June 12th, 2003

This morning, I did something that I don’t think I’ve done in the 3 1/2 years I’ve worked at my present job. I ironed my t-shirt before coming in to work. For some reason, when I pulled my corporate-logo-bearing shirt from the bottom drawer, it struck me that I should invest some pride in my […]

Plan For The Weekend

Thursday, June 12th, 2003

The soundtrack for this weekend is going to be everything by the Chemical Brothers that I can get my hands on. It’s going to have to be steady and energetic without getting frantic. There’s work to be done. First, frogging the CDS sleeve. I don’t want to do that, but there’s nothing else for it. […]

Lipstick Traces

Wednesday, June 11th, 2003

Staceyjoy is hanging up the blogger hat for a while. Can’t fault her for that, but I will miss her presence on the web. She’s one of the good ones. My page is going to be a little less jarring to the eyeballs today. Yesterday I started mucking about with the style sheets to see […]

Shield Your Eyes

Tuesday, June 10th, 2003

I’m experimenting with CSS stuff just now. Forgive me for doing it on my live site; I’ll set up something a little less public when I get home. In the meantime, I would recommend Peril Sensitive Sunglasses for viewing this site.

Blogroll Rundown

Tuesday, June 10th, 2003

The CDS project is my main focus now, but I vow that I will continue to work on the Aran also. It’s sitting behind me on the sofa right now, looking at me. I can feel it. I can also feel that I need more coffee to stave off the knitting paranoia. So I’m working […]

Higher Education

Sunday, June 8th, 2003

Okay, normally I would let this go. But the Grammar Nazi in me cannot be contained. On Friday I drove by San Antonio’s own University of the Incarnate Word. It’s a very lovely Catholic university in the middle of San Antonio, and I’ve had the luck to participate in a wedding in their chapel once. […]

Much Better

Sunday, June 8th, 2003

Oh, that was nice. I rode all over north San Antonio yesterday and didn’t encounter a single discourteous driver. That’s such a treat. My neck’s a little sunburned, but I feel okay otherwise. I finished another Kufi yesterday and I am STILL making the damn things too short! That’s okay though, I’ve got dozens more […]

Bike to the Barn

Saturday, June 7th, 2003

I’ve been bemoaning my lack of exercise all week. So this morning I got up earlier than usual and I plan to ride my bike down to the Yarn Barn instead of driving. It’s a good eight miles away, so this should get my pulse up a little bit. Now I just need to figure […]

CDS Side Project Underway

Thursday, June 5th, 2003

It looks like the Chris’ Daughter’s Sweater side project is ready to proceed. He was happy with the colors I selected, so I did a guage swatch last night and it looks like it’s going to work. I need to get some longer nines though. I also found out last night from my mom that […]

Freaking Sleep Patterns

Wednesday, June 4th, 2003

Last night was very unusual to say the least. I had dinner at the Vietnamese restaurant – the guy who wants me to make the sweater was not there – and then went home. I felt really wiped out, so I laid down in bed. This was at about 8:00 pm. I woke up at […]
