Scrape me off the ceiling & pass me a martini please....

Wired... I'm totally f-ing WIRED... I always get this way before I get on an airplane. I am both excited and nervous. It's a strange brew of energy. As much as I love to travel, and as often as I do - I am still a nervous flyer. Cocktails always help with this, but it's a bit early for one right now. Or is it? I'm sure it's afternoon somewhere in the world right now....

I'll be fine - I'll be at the airport in a couple of hours sipping a cocktail and having a smoke to calm my nerves - wait a minute - that's right - no smoking in the airport anymore. D'oh! Fucking fuckers! That's jobbies.

OK - I'm gonna try & get some work done, although I can't really cncentrate on anything right now.

See ya on the Left Coast!

C'mon Friday... Only one more sleep!!!

Isn't it terrible how we sometimes wish our weeks away, wishing for it to be Friday already? It's like we are wishing our lives away....

Well I have a
f-ing wicked excuse this week - I am off to Vancouver Friday afternoon -YIPPIE! My Man & I, and a couple of friends are off to visit his Brother, and perhaps do a little whale-watching. That's right WHALE WATCHING! How exciting! I'm also going to catch Margaret Cho's show at the Orpheum theatre Friday night, thanks to Uncle Ross for securing a ticket for me.

I'm such a lucky Girl! Not only do I get to go away to a beautiful city, and spend the whole weekend with my Man, but I get to cross something off my "Things to do Before I Die" list. WOOHOO!!!

On a crochet note, my progress on the Crocheted socks is steady... albeit a bit slow. I'm still on the first one, if time & my creaky elbows permit, I'll try & get some more work done on it tonight.

I don't know if it's the crappy weather this week or what - but it sure has been a long one. Phew! I am delighted that it's over. BRING ON THE WEEKEND!!!

Sleeping in tomorrow! Yippeee!! It's gonna be goooood... all the quadrapeds and me, all snuggly & smooshy & warm, slumbering in bed, till we can't any more... my second favorite way to spend Saturday morning... (the best way is being all snuggly & warm with my Man there with me too). Always remember - NEVER call me before noon on the weekend.

So I went to my first Downtown Knit Collective gathering last night with Eden & Kirsten (Sorry no pics.. I'll have to remember to carry my camera around more often, now that I'm a blogger. I know that pics make blogs more interesting). There were soooo many beautiful things! There were lots of georgeous new yarns, using wonderful blends of wool, alpaca, silk.. etc.. etc... One in particular is the new Patons SWS, a soy/wool blend, that looks really great felted. It's loveley! I think that I'll get some for my first ever felting project.

I started a new crochet project last night at the meeting. I'm going to try my hand at some crocheted socks. So far so good, alhough I'm just working on the ribbing of the sock-top right now. I'll post pics of my progress later.

BTW - I LOVE SUSHI!!! And it has been quite some time since I have indulged in one of my favourite things. Tomorrow I'm getting together with some friends for a sushi pig-out.. I'm so excited! I actually dreamt about eating sushi last night... (did I mention that i'm a freak for sushi?) I think we are going to go to Sushi Island on College St. for an all-you-can-eat sushi-fest. YUMMM!! I think some mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmartinis will be in order as well.

OK enough rambling for now...

Have a FAB-U-LOUS weekend Y'all!!

OMG - I can't believe 3 years ago today, I was priviledged enough to be there to see you take your first breath and hear your first cries (sniff, sniff...).

What a smart, handsome young man you are becoming.
I'd post a more recent pic here - but your Mom hasn't sent me any new ones - tell her to get on that K? I don't think I'll be able to make it to your party this weekend : ( , but I'll be there soon to visit you & your Mom & Dad.

OK - here goes....

I figured I should get with the times and try out this Blog-thingy...
I'm not making any promises about how often I'll actually post here, but I figure it's a good way to keep all my friends & loved ones in the loop of my life.
It'll be a great way to share my adventures in traveling, concert-going, downtown-living, as well as all the other more mundane things that go on in my life.

With the help of my friends Eden
and Kirsten, I hope to learn how to make this an interesting place to visit.. with lots of pictures and stories etc....
