I am being really annoyed (and I mean really really annoyed) by something petty and stupid and silly.

And even though I know it is stupid and petty and silly I am still annoyed.

So I am going to tag and work on my stupid job application form and my app for a new pup and not worry about it. (In theory.)

Also there is a person that bugs me and for a while I thought they disliked me and now I am not sure and now everytime they are nice to me it makes me suspicious (ie. why are you pretending to like me) and then I dislike them more.

Dear person,
Please go back to ignoring me now I am annoyed and confused!
No love

I am clearly not playing with a full deck of cards, I think. *worries*

Awhile ago I posted that I couldn't get the knitting partwork I wanted, or I think I did, I meant to anyway. Well I ordered it online and got two free issues and a needle case. I paid like a 99 pence for the lot. *\o/* Then I cancelled it because partworks are a ripoff.

Anyway I wanted this because I want to make stuff and I like crafty thinsgs. Also my gran taught me to knit when I was little (I'm using this very loosely here,) and she can't knit very much ever since she broke her hand and I kind of had the idea I would like to be able to knit properly. However I'm very fickle, so I wanted to buy this part work so I could have a go and see if i actually was interested or if it was another passing whim. (I have them a lot.)

So I bought the partwork and actually initially was just annoyed by casting on, why was it so hard and then I remembered my gran always used to cast on everything for me :p which would explain why this was hard, I hadn't actually done that before, so I watched the stupid instructional dvd and all was explained and then I decided to watch the rest just in case. I only ever did knit stitch as a kid and this weekend I did a sqare of practise garter stitch and unravelled and did then all purl and then unravelled and then a square of stocking stitch. (They don't give you a lot of practise wool!) Then I made the square of the quilt that came with part one of the partwork (though I haven't sewn the heart on yet because I didn't have a wool needle.) And I'm about to start the second square even though I have no intention of making the quilt because I've cancelled the partwork.

We went to hobbycraft today and I came home with more wool, including this cool rag stuff that might look weird when knitted but I couldn't resist buying, a new pair of needles, a crochet hook(apparently I need this to repair dropped stiches?), some pins, a row counter and a wool needle so I can finish my first square. I have no ide what I'm going to do with the new wool, but eeee I'm glad I have it. (Probably a scarf *is obvious novice knitter*) I am going to do the second square because the other one was very simple and this has like a ladder pattern which I think will be cool and also a challenge for beginner me. I also want to have a go at moss stitch before I try making anything.

In other news I'm really annoyed by something I have no right to be annoyed about and telling myself that does not help. *cryptic*

I want a knitting icon.

eta if the knitting comms are any indication, when I say wool I mean yarn, I don't know if this is a novice thing or a british thing but if you knit with it it's wool regardless of what it's made of. ETA This is probably just me, the partwork calls it yarn.

Apparently I am still quite optimistic as a person at least in regards to somethings and I will be excited about ASOIAF as a tv show right up until they actually fuck it up.

And then I will probably still buy the DVD when it inevitable comes out.

*does dance*

ETA However this on the other hand had better not be true. American Will Stanton? DO NOT WANT!

So I got in from work today and crashed on the couch which I did not want to do because I want to sleep at night.

I am now attempting to watch Stormbreaker for the third time. I keep putting it on and then falling asleep. I know totally get all the bad place people over in the Harry Potter fandom. I'm a total dirty old woman. Alex Pettyfer is cute and Alex Rider is a big wooby. (I kind of want to bring him over at [ profile] the_blank_slate.) Because I need to play yet another teenager. I might stick him on reserve and think about it. I also looked for Alex Rider fic today (big mistake) aside from all the mary sues (which I kind of expected.) The Americanisms are killing me, No MI6 did not make Alex miss his mid terms because there are no such things in british schools.

I'm making my new books I got for Christmas last longer by reading something inbetween each new book because I will not be getting any new books for ages. So I read my Artemis Fowl book and now I'm going to read the Stormbreaker series and then I am going to read the first three young wizards books before I read my new ones.

ETA I have put him on the reserve list because I have the self control of a knat, I'm off to think of journal names after I read some more fanfic.

Why Night Nurse works for me when other sleeping medication does not, or alternatively why Kirsty is stupid and can not be trusted to self medicate.

I have an awful cold and so have been taking just about everything for it, and now I tried night nurse because I really wasn't sleeping I was staying up and coughing! Fun times really! Also my mum gave me a bottle for free. So I tried it and I slept for about 16 hours which was yay sleep and yet huh where did my day go? yesterday I was up til 4:45 am anyway so didn't dare take any or I would not have woke up til about 8pm and that would have been no good. Anyway I did read the instructions beforehand which are take 20 ml before bed (accompanied by a lovely picture of a full measure cup) So I took a full measure cup and slept and slept and slept then I noticed today it's actually a 40 ml cup. So I took twice the dose no wonder I slept, I've take the right dose tonight and so far nothing happening. *sigh* I totally thought this stuff worked as well.

I'm so almost organised now, today I made chocolate chestnut cake (mmm) finished all my wrapping and dropped off the cards that we left too late to post.
Tomorrow I need to make banoffee pie and make the base for the key lime pie, go to Val's (drop off her presents and pick up the ones to take to Brians) sort out stuff we are taking to Val's on Sunday for kitties and us as we are staying over.

On Sunday I need to get up early make the key lime pie filling, go to Brian's with our presents and Val's, have lunch at Brian's. Come home get Kitties into travel boxes, pack up car, go to Vals. (with kitties, stuff, presents and banoffee pie.) On Monday Xmas Morning at Val's come home drop stuff off quickly pick up key lime pie (and presents for my family) get to my families for 12.

Bleh still sick and now with mild paranoia! which is fun obviously.

However in distracting myself news They made a sequel to The Librarian: Quest for the Spear. Which is so bad in an entertaining way and Noah Wylie is cute. It is on right now, so I'm going to go watch.

Then I will work on my secret santa fic somemore. (Because the one I had written was well bleh) also I thought of something else to flail about.
snowbryneich: (Default)

So David is out and I have the house to myself and I am sick, I ate tea and then went to sort out a video for Hogfather at which point as soon as I bent over to put a video in the machine I knew I was going to throw up and I did not make it to the bathroom in time. So by the time I had thrown up and cleaned up I missed the start so I sorted out at video and started to record anyway. And so my plan of staying in and drinking wine and eating chocolate are out the window because I still feel all sickly.

ETA Hogfather is on multistart so that's fixed that but now it will run into Torchwood *sulks* I need to stop organising my life around tv and rp really it's sad.

Also I'm dorkily worried about the whole Secret Santa thing at TR *flails*

So in my quest to not like my mind be unoccupied for more than two seconds I worked out uploading things to my laptop from my phone and tadaa!

Kitty Pictures! )
snowbryneich: (Default)
So rather than thinking of any of the real problems I have I've found a new layout at [ profile] thefulcrum and managed to wangle this picture of Lexi off my phone onto the computer. I'll probably upload more because my cats are cute!

Xmas!Kitty Lexi actually likes the hat and beard despite the face he's making. The hat falls off but he will fight you if you try and take the beard off him once he has it on. )
