Spot the Difference

      No Comments on Spot the Difference

I’ve happily been chipping away at the first sleeve, happy with the progress. I thought something looked different in the seed stitch, but I shrugged it off. And then, after 12 rows of it, I realised that I was doing double instead of single. Oh well. I’ve also decided that I cannot be bothered to do it right, so as… Read more »

Still Working

      No Comments on Still Working

As much as I’ve been on an organisation kick lately, there is always a part of me that expects it to only go so far. And maybe that will be the case with the shelving unit, but so far it’s helped me better organise several things, to include taking my stitch-making stuff out of the cupboard it was in. I… Read more »

Season 13 of┬áDiablo III started yesterday. So of course, most of my time since then has been dedicated to an initial play-through of the game before I can move on to the more fun aftercore sort of things. I’m most of the way through Act V, and am currently in the Pandemonium Fortress (as pictured). So I should easily be… Read more »

One of These Things…

      No Comments on One of These Things…

  … is not like the other. One of these things is not a pen. Randomly spotting a set of crochet hooks amongst the pens amused me way more than it probably should have. But as we were on the aisle for pens, I couldn’t resist looking. We’d popped into the store to pick up a birthday card for one… Read more »

Executive Toddler Strikes Again

I’m going to have to think up a new job title for her soon, seeing how she’s almost out of the toddler phase. We passed on her original title of ‘lazy assistant’ to her cousin W back in the States, one that his mother is using to good effect. I suspect that she’ll be happy to take on this title… Read more »

Purrs Like a Kitten

I ended up fiddling around with a couple of games on my laptop, after a nice long sludge in Diablo III. As much fun as that is, it does get boring after a few hours. I ended up back in Minecraft, and after a bit of fiddling, managed to get the game to remember that it’s supposed to operate off… Read more »

Textual Masochism

I have pretty much done nothing besides writing today. I told myself that I was going to meet that 5,000 again, and try to surpass it. I’d set myself a hard cap of 10,000, but I’m definitely not going to make that without ending up a drooling wreck. The highest word count I’d ever gotten on a 750words.com entry was… Read more »

What We Don’t Talk About

      No Comments on What We Don’t Talk About

One very cogent and true complaint I see of modern life is how we have this online medium to present a picture perfect life. Fights are glossed over or never mentioned, each child is more picture perfect than the last, and isn’t everything enviable? Everyone is perfectly in love with the love of their life, and everyone is shitting rainbows… Read more »

Om Nom Nom

Smallhausen has pestered me off and on for some time to take her to ‘crochet’ with me. To her, that means going to the pub where I go to Stitch ‘n Bitch; she’s been there once for a daytime fundraising event, but otherwise, she’s not come out since our group moved pubs. So I thought about that today, and with… Read more »
