man, forget church.

I don't feel like going.

Actually, it's a little bit stronger than that - I have been upset at the end of every church service I've attended in this town, and not in a good, sanctifying sort of way. More like in a You Just Wasted Two Hours of My Valuable Sleeping Time With Your Empty Platitudes sort of way. I have an active desire to stay defiantly in bed tomorrow morning, eat Peanut Butter Crunch, and tune into my favorite long-distance preacher, Darrin Patrick, via The Journey's website.

And you know what? You know what? I don't really think I'm wrong to feel this way. Not entirely.

So, I just started another knitting project (the last one, a nine-foot scarf, made an altogether satisfying birthday present for Josh - "Look! Now you will be warm forever!"), and having reached the monumental accomplishment of figuring out how to "cast on" (that's 'start the darn thing' for you non-knitters out there) without someone here to hold my hand, I've started roaming the internet for inspiration on what I should make this time.

Okay, so full disclosure - with no more than two types of stitch and one enormous scarf to my knitting name, I will probably not be attempting any of these Any Time Soon.
But wouldn't it be awesome if I could???

Pixie hat ... oh, Etsy, why do you torment me?

friday brain

So I sat down today to write a straightforward blog post, but honestly, between eating, sleeping and being at work, I have nothing of particular interest to report just now. Instead, I'm going to try the "roundup" concept I've seen on some of the other blogs I like to read - or, as I like to put it, "the better pickings of what's been floating around my brain this week."

another day, another dollar

I'm sure that's what these guys are thinking.
Then again, maybe they're thinking, "Mind your own business, giant wench!"
Anyway, I'm off to work - heigh ho, heigh ho.
Happy Wednesday!

it's the little things

...like, free shoes on the green room table at the end of the workday/night. "Free For Taking!" Um, OK.

7 things

...that I have learned in the last seven days.

1. Line notes may be tedious, but if you can get past that, they don't have to be difficult.

2. Professional actors work hard. Like, really hard. And they sacrifice a lot to do what they do.
