You Are From Pluto

You are a dark, mysterious soul, full of magic and the secrets of the universe.

You can get the scoop on anything, but you keep your own secrets locked in your heart.

You love change and you use it to your advantage, whether by choice or chance.

You don't like to compromise, to the point of being self-destructive with your stubborness.

Live life with love, and your deep powers will open the world to you.

Vampire?? Hmm....

You Could Be a Vampire... If You Had To

Like most people, the thought of being a vampire has crossed your mind. But you're not sure if you'd do it, even if you could.

Living forever doesn't sound half bad, if you could live forever with the people you love the most.

But do vampires even love? And would the vampire version of you even be you?

It's all too much to contemplate. Luckily, the chances of you ever becoming a vampire are astronomically low.

What you would like best about being a vampire: Living forever

What you would like least about being a vampire: Blood stained teeth

Swap Flakers! ARGH!!!

It irks me to high heaven when someone signs up for a swap and then flakes on it. WORSE is when someone organizes the swap and then flakes! Both times they have been given awesome kits.. one even from me and yet they never send their partner's anything. I refuse to have anyone not get something during one of my swaps, so I made a Halloween Sock Kit for my 'flaker's partner and am going to send it off tomorrow. Not only that, but I feel horrible that someone from an earlier swap got stiffed too... so I made a Holiday Sock Kit for her. I hope both ladies like their kits.

As the Holiday Sock Kit lady doesn't know its coming I feel safe in showing you her goodies! I had so much fun picking them out and had just the right sock yarn in my stash too!

Going to post them tomorrow so they should get them within a week, as they are in the USA.

On its way tomorrow is a Winter Swap Kit for my partner. It was supposed to be mailed around the 15th, but thinks have been hectic and sad at my house. Here is a pic of the goodies to be sent in the mail! She still doesn't know who she is either!!!! ::hehe::

Left to right.. Wintery Postits, List pad, winter cards w/girl and scarf, wild peppermint lip balm, a goblet full of beading delight, yummy yankie candle tart, peppermint cocoa, Tofuties!, more yummy cocoa, coal of course (nah, its really bubble gum), purse and shoe embry boards, 2008 calender, star gel soap, peppermint poprocks!, winter flutterby fairy kit, silvery tree ornament, wintery notebook, peppermint and cinnamon mints, and finally some great smelling soap!

I really really really tried to hold back this swap, you should have seen my Halloween kit.. le sigh, she never did post any pics. Oh well!

Lizard Hunting!

Haven't posted a kitty pic in a while, so here is one with both Aggie and Jinx lizard watching.

Ate my way through....

This week I have started to knitted a scarf for my youngest brother for Christmas. It is from the website of It is her Toliet Paper pattern, and if you knew my brother, who can be a POOP, you would get the ironic-ness of the gift!

Recent Reading has been fruitful this week... in reverse order...
  1. Dancing with werewolves, by Carole Nelson Douglas
  2. Midnight Alley, The Morganville Vampires Book 3, by Rachel Caine
  3. Holy Smokes, by Katie MacAlister
  4. Creation in Death, (25th book) by JD Robb aka Nora Roberts


  1. Naked in Death, (1st book) by JD Robb aka Nora Roberts
  2. The Diamond Throne, by David Eddings
  3. Night Embrace, A Dark-Hunter Novel, by Sherrilyn Kenyon

Not to mention, I have coughed up $25.00 to Library Thing so that I can have a lifetime membership and post more than 200+ books. I plan to add my knitting books next week sometime.


Monday, November 5, 2007


Okies... so then I read voraciously as you can tell from the left.. my Librarything is full of all sorts of paranormal reading and there are some great great authors there.. anyway I am the sort that reads as soon as it comes out and then are left high and dry for a year until the next arrives.

Patricia Briggs is one such author.. her Mercy Thompson series has me hanging on every word and never lets me loose until the story is done. Thereby torturing me for another 11 months and 29 days until the next book is available.

I have her site marked and routinely go through my favorites once a week or so. Well the third book arrives in the stores in January and as I was crusing through I saw she was offering shirts similar to the ones that Mercy wears on the cover of the third book! I HAD TO HAVE ONE... well three actually... ::cough cough:: HEY! One is for my sister.. the other two are for me. So I placed the order right then and there.

A few weeks later I write and ask about the status, normally they notifiy you within a few days. I had fallen through the cracks accidently. They were in the process of reording and would have them sent out soon. I was corresponding to her husband, who was the nicest guy possible.

TODAY they arrived!!! Not only are they so very awesome, but she sent me a gift too! A signed copy of Bloodbound! The second in the series, she even autographed and personalized it for me! I am so very stoked!!! (pictures below)

So now I am even more anxious for it to come out and can not wait!

Halloween Sock Kit Swap - Complete

Yeah! I am finished shopping for my HSKS from the Lime N Violet MBs. I hope my partner really likes her treats and yarn. Some of the stuff did not fit in the bags though, so they will have to go unwrapped. ::pout::

  2. I will check to see if its still available. If it is, I will prepare a PayPal Invoice and send it to you.
  3. You pay the Invoice and I send it on the next business day
  4. IF payment is not received in 24 hours, the skein will be reposted.

Entrelac Finished

YEAH! I went to the conclusion of my Entrelac class tonight. Many of the ladies were there and it was the first time... in a very long time that I participated in a Thursday SnB. It was really fun and the topics across the table ranged from completed projects all the way to facial waxing.. ow ow ow!

So now I am going to start to work on my own Entrelac project and add it to the IP list. Help me, help me!

Yeah for Entrelac!

Yesterday, I took a beginners Entrelac Class at my LYS and absolutely loved it. While we were able to get through almost all of the different steps, we still need to learn the final triangle pieces which go on the top. Therefore we have all agreed to meet next Thursday, the 20th for a final class.

The class was just the right size and we were all around the same skill level so that the pace was smooth and easy. Many of the ladies also are on Ravelry and I got to share my obsession with Lime and Violet too. ::chuckle:: At the end we were all writing down our blog spaces and sharing email information. Granted the class discount for purchasing other yarn was really sweet too.

I would encourage anyone to seek classes such as this to expand and push your knitting. I can no longer call myself a novice knitter! WHEEE!!!

Now that I have Mitered Squares and Entralac under my belt, one of my projects I want to try this year is....

Its called FiberFish and sold by LaurieM. She created it for a nolonger listed group called Bitchin Mittens and won a red ribbon for it. The pattern is still onsale and she will send it to you in a PDF format. There is some slight errata, so be sure to print that up as well.
Til next time!

Having A Bad Day Swap - Lime N Violet

So we have this great community at the Lime n Violet Message Boards. One of the ladies recommended a 'Having A Bad Day Swap' and many of us jumped on the idea and joined. My partner Jenny143 sent me an awesome package and even included my furry babies in her thoughtfulness. Below are a few pic of them playing with their presents... some of which I still can not find once they got their furry paws on them.

You are White Chocolate

You are White Chocolate
You are sweet, caring, and truly very innocent.
Whether your naive ways are a bit of act or not, people like to take care of you.
You are a quiet flirt, and your power is often underestimated!

I finished in 8 hours!

Gads.. I finished it in 8 hours and still want to go back and read it again, but alas the hubby has taken it and I shall have to wait until he is done.

No spoilers on my blog, but I was astonished at the fight scenes and who was lost.

Early Kitty Pic

I can't wait to show you all the new collars the kids have. They are spiffy!


PS Shhh! Don't tell them, but its shots time once again. So off they will go this weekend. Going to have some really miffed, sore, and cranky kitties soon. I wonder if I should bathe them first? ::ponders::

Kitty Pic of the Week

So I lay out my squares to photograph for my Lizard Ridge Throw from Knitty and the kids can not decide who is going to lay on them first. I think you will agree that Aggie has the upper paw in this scene.


What is your blog rated?

Online Dating

I only had the word 'Death' 2x on my blog, so I got a G rating. ::hehe:: Guess I have to vamp it up a bit LOL!

Death of the Doughboy

Please join me in remembering a great icon of the entertainment community. The Pillsbury Doughboy died yesterday of a yeast infection and trauma complications from repeated pokes in the belly. He was 71.

Doughboy was buried in a lightly greased coffin. Dozens of celebrities turned out to pay their respects, including Mrs. Butterworth, Hungry Jack, the California Raisins, Betty Crocker, the Hostess Twinkies, and Captain Crunch.

The grave site was piled high with flours. Aunt Jemima delivered the eulogy and lovingly described Doughboy as a man who never knew how much he was kneaded. Doughboy rose quickly in show business, but later life was filled with turnovers. He was not considered a very smart cookie, wasting much of his dough on half-baked schemes. Despite being a little flaky at times, he still was a crusty old man and considered a positive roll model for millions.

Doughboy is survived by his wife Play-Dough, two children, John Dough and Jane Dough, plus they had one in the oven. He is also survived by his elderly father, Pop Tart. The funeral was held at 3:50 for about 20 minutes.

<~* Hope you liked the chuckle as much as I did when a co-worker shared this with me *~>

Mitered Squares

Kitty P*rn

Its time for some updated kitty pics! Below is the Chair Thief Queen herself! HRH Aggie.

And of course, this is why I will never have my computer desk to myself... Perhaps once I move in the bookshelves, they will migrate over to them instead. Its really hard to play online, surf for yarn p*rn, and update the blog with a furry blob in the way... Here is Jinx keeping me away from the Yarnie Luciousness of The Loopy Ewe!

What Mama?

This is why its taking me months to unpack!!! Open the drawer to sort the "stash" and in pops a kitty. ::flail::

Yarn Pirate "Booty Club"

Woot! I can't believe I got into the club. I just can not wait to find out what is in store.

Is that Rocky?!

Where have all the birds gone? OH I see!!!

And then he invited his friends over for a bite too! The nerve!

The pics are a bit fuzzy due to the screened in lanai.
