Okay, I’ve got a little news for each of my three categories today. I’m pressed for time, so I’m going to combine them all in one post; maybe I’ll hack up MT later to make trifurcated posting easier. (Yes, trifurcated is a word. I didn’t make that up.)
Knitting: I called the Yarn Barn yesterday and asked them what the ETA was on the Cotton Fleese was that I ordered last week. I asked for one skein of Lapis for Enjay’s hat and the several skeins called for in the pattern for the Monk’s Travel Satchel. They told me that it would take about two to three weeks to get everyting in.
Then, about ten minutes later, I got an excited call from the lady I’d just spoken to telling me that they’d just received an unexpected shipment which included the Lapis! Yippee! I’m going to start a brick-stitched cap in it as soon as I’ve got a spare half-hour.
Excercise: I stashed some shorts and a t-shirt in my file cabinet last week so that I’d have exercise clothes on hand if I found my schedule was really pressed for time and I wanted to go for a ride at lunch. Guess what? I’m really pressed for time. I’m going to try and get in a half-hour this afternoon.
Violin: I called up Krazy Kat music and made a cash offer for the beautiful old violin that I’ve been lusting after. With any luck, the owner (a guy named Eugene who apparently never stops moving) will hear of it and respond to me sometime this week. I’m offering $125 less than they’re asking. Hopefully that’s not too insulting and they’ll go for it.
And that’s it in a nutshell. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to figure out what new switches are not automatically being assigned VLANs when they’re created in widgetmaster. Oh, what a charmed and sexy life I lead.
