finally finished knitting this dreg. I like the pattern and it's neat and all but I don't know if I'll ever make it again. It was problematic from the start though I don't really know why. I just kept messing it up. I made it for Miranda, because I thought it would be funny to randomly send her a skull. Next chance I get at a printer (that works, and doesn't tell me some bull shit about not being able to print my proof of insurance) I'm going to look for a plain heart pattern to make for my aunt. I gave her two dish cloths already, from before I knew how to purl and she just loves them for some reason. And I want to make one for my other grandma since one of the last times I went over there she gave me all her knitting needles not without the depressing tidbit about how she thought when she was older she'd have time to knit and sew and quilt and read and now she can't because she can't see. It is sad, but maybe she should have thought about what "old" meant before she turned ninety last year. I should make hers as soon as possible so I can send it with the thank you card for my birthday gift.
Right now, however, I'm torn between playing mario baseball, watching battlestar, or going to my grandma's house. And getting more pop before my freezer mug melts. I shouldn't have even got it out for the small amount I put in there. Also torn about putting away clean clothes. That may not happen today. But thank god I just reminded myself that I wanted to wash my sheets.
Pointless update? you betcha.
OH! And I found a coupon for a transmission flush for fifty dollars. At least I think that's what it is. I'll double check it with my dad since it doesn't say "flush" on the coupon so much as describe what they do.
edit: decided to wash the sheets and then go to grandma's house. playing mario baseball while I wait and THE FUCKING CHARACTERS DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY'RE DOING I HATE LUIGI AND HE'S GOING TO HELL FOR NOT RUNNING WHEN I TOLD HIM TO AND LETTING PRINCESS PEACH'S TEAM GET A DOUBLE PLAY. Fucking stupid. Honestly.
