6 degrees?

it’s a good movie anyhow. i keep a chart. please note that no one gets added unless i realize there’s a connection between me and someone else that i know and i had no idea they knew each other. i’ve only been doing this for about a year, so it’s small. also note that in madison, it’s more like 3 degrees. you’re not really supposed to be able to read the names.

i learned of someone’s resignation here at work.. i told my boss cuz it kinda affects her. later on, that someone told her and she actually gasped, acted surprised, and opened her mouth really big. i have mixed feelings. i kinda think that was shitty of her to fake being surprised, and she wasn’t very good at it… then i guess i understand that it’s just easier to do that than to say, “yea, bekee told me. i hope everything goes well! bye!” whatevs. it’s friday.

knitty update

there’s a gal at work that is somehow convinced that all my talk about knitting is just for show (she’s actually just giving me grief), so i thought i’d digitally capture the water bottle holder that got such rave reviews at the last softball game. here it is: (image code missing)

it might be

the weather, the phase, or the pure fact that i hate coming home to sit in front of another computer after being at one for 9+ hours. am i getting jaded? have i lost interest in blogging? i wonder how long one can go without blogging something of interest before people just stop checking. unfortunately, i haven’t quit my day job and opened a yarn store. but that prospect is lookin’ mighty fine. i guess it would require saving up some moola, though. an upnote: tomorrow is friday, so the friday five will be in full effect.

i simply have no interest in sitting in front of a computer while i’m on vacation. :)

1. What brand of toothpaste do you use?
i try to mix it up a bit, otherwise my teeth and gums get used to one form of tartar fighting action. currently, arm&hammer brilliant sparkle.

10. Thought-provoking question of the week: The city of Boston has recently banned smoking in all restaurants and bars. Would you want to see such a law passed in your city/town/country, or not?


this week at work has been almost impossibly busy. I’ve been in meetings and trainings and working with a new employee and my eyes hurt and my head hurts. I just want to knit!


We lost, 11-13. Wasn’t a horrible defeat cuz we were tied after an hour and had to play “overtime”. Funny.
