It’s official, the evil webhost went out of business, and rather than letting his clients know, he just pulled the plug on the server(s). Blog archives are permanently gone. May he be plagued by toads in his shoes for the rest of his life.
In other news, I have a new obsession, and its name is knitting. Weird, I know. I’m so not the knitting type. But I decided to try it out because so many of my friends knit, and apparently it’s the big thing here in L.A. And once I tried it, I found that it’s amazingly relaxing. No wonder so many people are doing it again! It forces me to focus on the repetitiveness of the stitch until everything else drops away, and then, as my hands become accustomed to the motions and no longer need my full attention, my mind is free to float through whatever issues have been pestering me, without the bother of them overwhelming me. It’s great! And I already finished my first scarf, which took me just under two weeks. Today I went yarn shopping, and I’m just giddy at the many things I can now make anytime I want. Granted, it’ll probably just be scarf upon scarf until I master all the techniques, but it’s still pretty cool turning string into something you can wear.
I have so many pictures I need to put up – from Christmas, and the days all around it, and others I can’t even remember right now. I’m just so tired of this damned computer though. I promise not to forget entirely, but it might be a little while before I get them all up. I will do my best to get them up before February 21st, mostly because I’ll have a whole mess of new pictures to put up after that weekend, and the last thing I want is to be looking at 400+ pictures to be editing all at the same time. Yeah, I’m just babbling now, but I feel the need to make up for the lack of posts for the past month by filling this one up with whatever nonsense I can come up with. For instance, did you know Dido’s last name is Armstrong? Yeah, me neither before last week.
Ok, enough drivel. I have a couple of dvds waiting for me, thanks to the wonder of Netflix. 😀
