All Socklettes, All the Time.

Tuesday, May 31st, 2005

Today is Tuesday!!!!!!!

Today, we find out who’s who:

(I DID promise, after all…)

Ok! Here’s the rundown…

a. Carrie
b. Anne Marie
c. Jenna


At first, I was worried at first that I’d made the contest too easy!! But THEN, almost NO ONE got it right!!!!

What’s FUNNY is that, of all the entries, it was the FIRST person who guessed who got it right… AND the LAST!!!! hee!!! So, without further ado…


The FIRST guesser to guess all three noses correctly was….




Jess wins one ball of my S&W Regia Mini-Ringel (enough for socklettes!!!!!!) AND a set of hand-painted wooden needles from Peace Fleece!!! (also purchased at S$W)


Of course, I DID say that TWO people guessed correctly, which means there is a SECOND WINNER!!!!


(so much hype and drama!!!)

The Second place winner is….


Stacey wiins a hank of Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock in bittersweet to make her own bittersweet socklettes (or um, whatever)





Just email me your info girlies, and I can send you your prizes!!! :)

In other ‘news’, I think I have developed a very-very-likely-to-be-UNREQUITED crush on my booty caller AND you should really really REALLY go see CRASH. Brilliant!

*speaking of which, go see Holly’s cutiecutie socklettes!!!

So seeee, I TOTALLY meant to make this a crazy-thrilling BLOGTASTIC week!!!


The thing iiiiis, I seem to be having a LIFEtasticweek, which is getting in the waaaay of blogtastication!

To make it worse (for the blog, that is), I can’t really tell you much in the way of DETAILS without incriminating the otherwise (not-so ;)) innocent!!

Between fancy work dinners, free days off, appearances that pay me good money to hang out with HOT and fun guys, guests on my radio show (NEVER happens!! SO FUN!), late-night impromptu road trips, exciting new opportunities, an afternoon of yarn, and sleep-deprivation delerium, I ROCKED OUT THIS WEEK!

What was the highlight though?






At this point, I would like to go over some factors that make this event exciting to me:

  1. July 19th, 2004. Do the math.
  2. I asked out a cute guy Saturday night and GOT. SO. DISSED. It was embarassing. Like, very. I needed this.
  3. If you could see the caller in question, you would covet the call. HOLY FUCKING HOT!
  4. At 2am on a weeknight, I have nothing better to do :)

Now, before you think less (or not) of your little vibey, I’m not entirely sure that the intent of the call was for booty (even though it was made at 11:30pm and my arrival at booty location was not until 3:30am) AND no actual booty was GIVEN.

The vibe of the encounter (vibe! heh, get it?) was waay more like a Jr. High Slumber Party, except instead of my best friend Julie, there was an incredibly HOT guy and instead of actually WATCHING the entire movie, we totally made out. :)

It turned out to be a really cool night where we hung out and ate at the Paper Moon (yum!!), watched LEGEND, made out, napped, cuddled, and just chilled till 1pm the next afternoon!!! WAY FUN :)

There’s totally more to the story, including the reasons why there will likely be no future installments, but publishing it on the internet would be SO BAD AND SO WRONG.

However, the POINT is, with all the HOOPLA this week, I’ve totally skipped over announcing the CONTEST WINNER!! I sooo promise I will have that for you first thing TUESDAY! :)

I promise.


*no need to tell me how potentially sketch that whole situation could have gotten. Actually, I bet you have no idea how sketch it could have been, but dude. I know. I’m aware. I planned accordingly. It was STILL not smart.

PS – I just realized that I can’t go on and on about hot boys and then leave you all high and dry with no hot boys of your own!!! Thus, I have poked around on the internet to bring you this fine bit of eye candy. Enjoy. :)

It Only Took Me 6 Months!

YOU might be wondering about THE CONTEST. Would you believe that only TWO people got it right?!!?!?!!?!? CRAZY! I guess it was harder than I thought!!!

AAAnnyway, you’ll have to wait to find out who won because I haven’t sorted out the prizes yet…



Instead, I wanted to show you this:

The Bittersweet Socklettes are DONE!

Here they are with my goofy mary-janes that are held together by a safey pin

How wierd is it that, as I got higher up on the foot, the stripes got narrower and started to match the first sock?!!?!?!

WOOO!!! FO!!!!

I made these little socklettes out of ONE hank of Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock in Bittersweet on size US1 bamboo DPNs. As you can see from the first pic, I have quite a bit left over too!! Since I originally bought TWO hanks of LL in Bittersweet, that also means I have one FULL hank left over as well. Hrm… whattodo, whattodo…

Now, lately, being a blogger an’ all, I’ve been taking pictures of *everything* with the full intent of blogging about it! However, most of these things have gone unblogged. :( Sad. Since there is just *never* enough blog-time, I will give you the quick slide-show recap of some of the things I meant to blog about:

This is a pic of me with two of the guys from Papa Roach!
Jacoby (the singer) is on the left and Jerry (the bassist and my future husband ;) ) is on the right :)

This is Ebony performing with her students at the Sahara Dance bellydance recital.
If you live in the area and ever want to take Bellydance classes, you should TOTALLY take Eby’s class. She rocks.

This is part of the line for the midnight showing of STAR WARS Episode III at the Uptown, opening night.
Note the Lazy-boy. That girl’s sister had been camping out for DAYS.

This little duck joined us for dinner the other night at the Rio.
He was hiding from some crazed children. About ten minutes later, he was joined by his three friends. Those kids were TOTAL poster kids for birth control!

That’s all for now, I guess. Check back to find out who won The Big Contest! It MIGHT be YOU!! (oooooo!!!)

Run, Don’t Walk…
