I Feel Like I’m Forgetting Something…

      No Comments on I Feel Like I’m Forgetting Something…

But I don’t know what. I’ve been sitting here trying to figure it out for a couple of hours now, but nothing is forthcoming. Thanks brain, you’re a real pal. :p I did find out one thing — my attempts to get that Twitter account verified were shot down. It’s fine, I was expecting that. I’m seriously quite fine with… Read more »

It’s a Squee Sort of Day

      2 Comments on It’s a Squee Sort of Day

I like getting mail. I think that most people like getting mail. I especially like getting mail that ended up costing something almost reasonable. Well. It’s sort of annoying that a bit of plastic cost us £20, but it was probably the best we were going to be able to get for a PokéWalker, and more so for it being… Read more »

Flawless

It’s been sticky hot here again, so of course, Batman decides he’s a lap cat. As you can see from this picture earlier today, I am not amused, and he’s obviously Smug as Fuck™®. Sigh? Sigh. Don’t get me wrong — I love the idea of lap cats and getting cuddles. When it comes to Batman, however, he doesn’t lay… Read more »

1911

But really, it’s hot here. It was, apparently, the hottest September day since 1911; it was the hottest since 1949 when I went out at 4pm, so make of that what you will. *chuckles* And the Brits… one of the things I was super at home with is that the Brits are as obsessed with taking about the weather as… Read more »

Tired

Myself and the littlest have been having a rough time of it today. I think she’s cutting a molar, and me? I’ve just been dealing with dizziness and fogginess and am not really sure what the deal is. But then, what have I been complaining of for days? Yeeeh.. Still, I did one good thing for myself — I dragged… Read more »

Slap a Ribbon ‘Round It

      No Comments on Slap a Ribbon ‘Round It

I still need to get it shoved into a bubble mailer, all the knitty bits are lovingly folded around each other and prettily packaged. Oh okay, the tissue paper under and around the ribbon tore a bit ’cause I was probably pulling the bow too tight, but whatever. It’s done, it looks nice from a distance, etc. And if you… Read more »

It’s the Opposite of Ridiculous…

      No Comments on It’s the Opposite of Ridiculous…

According to the online thesaurus, antonyms of ridiculous include ‘credible’ and ‘reasonable’. The fact that I am the owner of this huge stack of wool is totally one of those over ridiculous. What’s ridiculous is that I got the lot, 32 balls of wool, and a set of 20mm needles, for £30.77. Aaaand that was with Z’s blessing; he was… Read more »

Ow

I have been Plastergirl this week. I have these weird spates where one hand or another will be covered in bandages, and I’m in another one of them. The one on the thumb is where I sliced my knuckle open on the inside of a cupboard door. Because, of course, I am grace fucking incarnate. The other is a random… Read more »

Hard Times

      1 Comment on Hard Times

I try, for the most part, to avoid cross-linking my blogs, but sometimes I feel that it’s important to. To which I give you: Her Name was Ulla http://www.thescarletb.com/2016/09/08/her-name-was-ulla/ This is the second death amongst the Bipolaratti that I’ve known/heard about in the last couple of weeks, and that’s hard. Even if these people weren’t my BFFs, they were people… Read more »

Gone Pubbin’

      No Comments on Gone Pubbin’

It’s alternate Wednesday, which means Stitch ‘n Bitch. I meant to write this while I was down at the pub, but my netbook decided it was going to spend the entire time trying to update itself instead of being useful. Sigh? Sigh. Still, it was a good night. I got some knitting done, there were cupcakes to eat, and we… Read more »
