When the going gets tough

the tough go shopping!

On Monday, when the A/C broke, I got some knitting books at my favourite bookstore before heading over to Texas's house.

On Tuesday I got a couple cooool CDs at Starbucks (where Cat'r and I hid out for a while when it was still too warm for me at home in the late afternoon/evening). We then went to Michael's, where I got...you guessed it--yarn!

Bunnicula let me get lotsa stuff on Wednesday, when we saw my surgeon, then went to Target afterwards. It was *going* to be a "get things we need" trip; but then B. started looking at various things and saying, "Get that if you want it" about a LOT of stuff! One thing we got was the DVD of "The Incredibles". GREAT MOVIE! See it!!!! I also got a couple stuffed animals, some CDs (mood music--very soothing), and I forget what-all else! Oh yeah: Syberia and Syberia II. Also Tetris Elements. I haven't even tried these yet, although Cat'r has been playing Tetris Elements. Yay for games on sale!

Today I got in on the tail-end of the closing/everything-must-go sale of my LYS (local yarn store), Knit Happens. I am *really* sorry to see them go, but boy did I get some good deals! I got a TON of yarn and three pair of yummy Crystal Palace bamboo single point needles. Everything was 65% off!!!

When I got home, I had a voice mail from my surgeon saying that she had good news and to call. I called her, got her nurse, who told me that there was nothing cancerous showing up in the lab results (see other post). Yay!

I gotta get going on a little Capulet Caplet and a matching openwork stole for myself for Bunnicula's and my 25th (silver) anniversary on Aug. 22d! I am going to be using Katia Sevilla in a pale silver. It's a nylon ribbon yarn. Yum! I hope I have enough yarn left to make a sash or something for Bunnicula. Maybe the stole will come last, after something for B., with whatever I have left. :-)

Hi! Long time no drop by.

I remembered you liked Neopets and was wondering if you wanted to join me over at GoPets - www.gopetslive.com. It's really cool - very interactive pets that visit one antohers' desktops. If you sign up to try, put me in the referral ID (my id is Gankaku) so we can automatically be hooked up so our pets can visit one another.

If you like Neopets I think you'll really love GoPets.

Hi! Actually, I never tried Neopets. I heard enough to realize I probably wouldn't have time for all the things you can/should do in that. :-P

I am back into playing Animal Crossing (GameCube), plus Syberia (on the PC). And there is my knitting and crocheting. :-)

Thanks for the invitation, just the same. :-)

Heh. Well, he knows buying stuff and having goodies helps take one's mind off unpleasant things that have to be done.
