MEEEEEme.

Friday, May 9th, 2008

Teeechnically, I’ve already done this Meme, but Joanne tagged me for it, and I can’t deny that girl, so Meme it is (although, I can’t come up with 14 things about me, so I’mma cut it down to 10):

10 things about Me(me):

  1. When I’m sick, I obsessively check my temperature. I think it’s mostly in hopes I will find out I’m too sick to go to work. Usually, that’s not that case.
  2. I was *never* a fan of New Kids on the Block. I’ve always been very proud of this fact.
  3. I get REALLY pissed off when I inadvertently get exposed to LOST spoilers! DID SOMEONE DIE LAST WEEK? DON’T TELL ME! DID SHE REALLY THOUGH? NO! DON’T TELL ME!
  4. Lately, I’ve been kind of sad that they no longer make Berry Burst Cheerios. Not only were they tasty, but they were REALLY good for you! I guess the cereal world wasn’t big enough for Yogurt Burst AND Berry Burst Cheerios. {{sigh}}
  5. Of all the places I’ve been so far, St. John is the most beautiful I’ve ever seen. I’ve been to Paris, Rio, Cyprus, The Cayman Islands, Cabo, California, Michigan, Arizona, Nevada and most of the East Coast of the US. I can’t wait to go back to The Virgin Islands someday.
  6. I hate coming up with lists of random things about myself. :-P
  7. I’m not a girl who likes to clean, but I love watching the canister of my Dyson fill up with crap from my floor. I love that you can see the vacuum is *DOING* something. The carpet is getting CLEAN. I love it.
  8. I think Carrie could have been really happy with Aidan if she hadn’t fucked him over by having an affair with BIG. Eh, maybe not. She was into shoes, he was into camping. Still though, he was a good egg.
  9. I possibly invest too much energy into characters of TV shows. Obviously. (see above)
  10. I really miss my friends when I don’t get to see them often, but I’m horrible at remembering to call them. :(

Now, don’t get all excited. I know this is my THIRD post this week, but knowing me, I won’t post AGAIN for another two months!!! (heh, kidding! I hope?)

I’m not going to tag anyone for this Meme, because I don’t want y’all to hate me, but I AM gonna start a NEW one ;)

THE BOOBIE MEME!

I won’t tag anyone, but we’ve had so much boobie fun here at vibeknits this week that I just wanna spread the joy :) So if you feel compelled to play, post a rack pic on YOUR blog and let me know about it! I’ll even make it a CONTEST!

YAY CONTEST! (I just thought this up just now. I think it might be my way of bribing you to participate. heh.)

Everyone that posts a rack pic will be entered in a drawing for a leetle yarnie gift from me! :) You have until next Friday, May 16th at NOON.

FUN :)

Happy weekend, y’all.

It’s only fair.

So, yessssterday, after I posted my post, I got the following comment (which was first deleted and now altered to protect the not-so-innocent):

OMG. You posted a picture of my boobies. NOT FAIR.

Hrm.

You know?

She-who-will-not-be-identified is TOTALLY right.

NOT FAIR!

Even though she somewhere owns a pic of my ass in panties that say “Giddyup” across the butt that she could SO use to enact revenge, I know she wouldn’t post it, so I decided that I must take it upon myself to make up for my wee indiscretion.

Boobies 2
we’re even, yeah?

How’s that, twat-weasel?

You still love me, right?

:)

Look Ma! I’m POSTING!!

Um, so like…

It’s Monday.

Monday after Sheep $ Wool.

{{{zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz}}}

The Monday following MDS$W is the saddest (and sleepiest) Monday in the world!!! This is because MDS$W is The MOST! FUN! EVER!

The first year I went, I think I might have emptied my bank account. BAD (yet oh-so gooooood). These days, I go mostly to hang out with my friends. The less money I part with, the better (which is what I went around saying all day Saturday and which I TOTALLY meant, but HOW SAD WAS I Saturday afternoon when I realized I hadn’t bought a SINGLE THING?!!?! True Story!)

Even though I live in Maryland, I always jump in on a hotel room because for me, it’s all about the PARTY!!! knittin’ and drinkin’ and bonding!! :) Here is the Homewood Suites branch of TEAM RAV! (minus Frecklemom and Carrie, who weren’t in the pic for some reason :-\ )


team rav!
YAY TEAM RAV!

Sarah W. didn’t stay with us at the hotel this year, but that’s because she had to attend to the cutest member of MD Team Rav:


Raley
It’s Raley!

Two other rockstar members of Team Rav?

BOOBLES!
Repping Ravery at the Party Saturday night!

Can I just pause here to say what ROCKSTARS Jess and Casey have become! It’s INSANE! Last year at MD, Jess was passing out buttons and trying to convince peeps to sign up for their cute little website. I think there were about 200 members at the time. This year? They were TOTAL CELEBRITIES!


Rav Meetup
Jess and Casey at the Ravelry Meetup on Saturday!

Seriously, I don’t think I say it enough, but I am so proud of you guys!!! YOU ROCK!!! :) Thank you for everything you’ve done for us!!!!!! YAY RAVELRY!

Besides talking about food, playing paparazzi, pimping ravelry and taking pictures of boobies, I also got the spend some time chillin the the grass with these ladies:


Claudia, Carolyn and Silvia
Claudia, Carolyn and Silvia

Normally, I only manage a quick run-in with them in the merch line, but this year we got to chill a little on the hill. It was nice :) I totally wish they had made it to the Rav party, but slackers that they are, they didn’t come :( On the flip side though, Jenna came with Lolly, so YAY!

Sunday, I spent most of my time at the festival trying to make up for the fact that I didn’t buy *anything* on Saturday. I couldn’t go home TOTALLY empty-handed!!! NOT ACCEPTABLE! I managed to aquire a few trinkets:

MDSW 08 stash
Some trekking XXL, cable needles, cute wood buttons, SUPER cute heart-shaped stitch markers, and merino lace-weight from The Sanguine Gryphon

I got asked sooooo many times about the Ravelry tote. They were selling them at the party, but if you didn’t get one, don’t worry. You’ll be able to snag one once the Ravelry store opens (with a TON of other really cute, bank-account draining items YOU MUST HAVE! Seriously. SO CUTE!)

Since I spent my first day hanging out (and making new friends!) and my second day shoppingshoppingshopping, I didn’t really get to check out the animals! I saw some goats here and a few alpacas there, but the only animal pic I got was of this poor guy:

Llama with a bad haircut
Why did they do that to hiiim? Whhhhyyyy?

I just HAD to take a pic of the llama and his bad haircut. Of course, while I was taking the pic, I totally felt the need to sing “Me and my llama” to myself. I really don’t know what that’s about. Maybe Adam *is* right about limiting TV time for kids ;) heh.

{{sigh}}

Monday suuucks. YOU GUYS TURN AROUND AND COME BACK, OKAY? YOU COME BACK AND PLAY WITH ME!
:(

MDS$W!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thursday, May 1st, 2008

Aww yeah, baby! S$W time is HERE!!!!

(and yes, I will be there, vibeknits tote in hand.)

I’m *soooooo* excited to see all my favorite knitty peeps!!! ALL IN ONE PLACE!!!!

I’m also most excited about the HOT RAVELRY PARTY!!! I think it’s gonna kick-ASS, so hopefully, you’ll be there too!!!! WOOT!

Alas, today is only Thursday and we still have one more day to get through before peeps start rolling into town. SO, in the meantime, I give you a reprise of this video from last year’s S$W (mostly because you guys are the only ones who appreciate it, and it needs to be appreciated for it’s awesomeness :-P):

See you (hopefully) this weekend!!!
