Dead Bungee Jumper

Friday, October 31st, 2003

Thanks to Carlene for the idea. This is what happens when bungee jumping goes wrong.

Happy Halowe’en!

Friday, October 31st, 2003

I’m taking my camera to work to try and get some good pics. I’m going as the bare-bones version of Carlene’s dead bungee jumper. I’ve got the rope and the blood, but no concrete block. I’m not that into holidays. Have fun, everyone! UPDATE A businessman on the street just walked up to me and […]

Oh, The Humanity!

Friday, October 31st, 2003

Audio Version I was looking at the soon-to-be-cuff of the second sleeve this evening, trying to figure out the transition to 1×1 ribbing, when I realized that I have just knit the whole sleeve wrong. The first sleeve’s cable section is bordered by two knit stitches. The second sleeve’s cable is bordered by a knit, […]

Audio Version I’m trying to get done with the sleeves. Really, I am. This is not some kind of psychological trick I’m playing to keep the Sweater Project going. But the cables on the second HDPEWAS are all screwed up in the last section. I’m going to have to bust out some extra needles, rip […]

Audio Version Well, that was good. I think. K just called me back. It was a very nice conversation. At the end I told her how much I’d like to see her again soon. She said sure, in a week or so. I don’t understand women. But at least I still have my profound sense […]

Judy got her kufi

Tuesday, October 28th, 2003

Another kufi delivered to a happy home. UPDATE I forgot to mention that Judy is a victim of the dreaded Sweater Curse. She told me when I gave her the kufi that she once knit a sweater for her boyfriend. She got rid of the boyfriend, but kept the sweater.

What a Day

Monday, October 27th, 2003

So I got up this morning, practiced the violin a bit, checked the mail, etc. A pretty usual morning for me. The I loaded up my bag, gave myself an insulin injection, and went down to my car to drive to work. I planned to buy a breakfast taco on the way into work for […]

Hot Women, Redux

Sunday, October 26th, 2003

Audio Version, you bunch of perverts. Like I’ve said before, hot women inspire me to knit. This is just one of many factors in my psychological/genetic makeup which will prevent me from ever, ever procreating. But it will ensure that many people have warm, fuzzy stuff to wear. Case in point: Sophie. Sophie is one […]

It’s a cool, overcast

Sunday, October 26th, 2003

Audio Version It’s a cool, overcast day in San Antonio. It matches my mood perfectly, as I’m feeling a little bit melancholy. I’ve got a big mug of coffee sitting at my elbow and some bacon frying in the skillet. Soon I shall have some breakfast and go for a bike ride, then return home […]

Ghost Riders on N. St. Mary’s

Friday, October 24th, 2003

Audio Version I took my camera with me to the Thursday night bike ride last night. This is the third time I’ve made it out there this Spring, and my legs are starting to really get used to the new bike. The only problem I have is that the damned rear wheel keeps squeaking really, […]
