just a few things

I finally wore the poncho I crocheted. I am still not pleased with it, but if I have something on underneath that will show at the neck line, I can live with it. It looks better on the girl in the online picture (the neck is not as tight).

I ripped out most of the kitty hat I was knitting because apparently I did not measure the darn thing correctly and it was too big. I was amazed though that I was able to pick up all the stitches and re-work the hat without completely starting over.

To the guy who was looking at me in the produce section of the Whole Foods in Plano on Saturday night – ummmm… why? From what I could tell you were there with someone of the female gender, and I looked like crap. If you weren’t looking at me in “that way” but rather wondering why someone would show up at Whole Foods looking that bad, then it can be concluded that my radar for those types of things should definitely be sent in for repairs. Sorry. Move along.

I am cramming in eight vacation days into the end of this month since that is the number that will not carry over to the next year, and I will lose them if I don’t use them. It feels weird taking these days off (and so many at one time) when I am not actually doing any vacationing.

I hate it when they are right

Looking back, I think that there have been times that I have eventually come to the right decision on things, but still lacking the clarity that is apparent to other people around me. It is later on that I am given the opportunity to see what they already saw – and then hate myself for, once again, not listening. What the hell was I thinking?

I am not sure what was clouding my judgement. Maybe I was looking for the good side to things and people. Maybe I had some sort of tunnel vision, seeing only what I wanted to see, and I was to be damned if I considered the negative opinions of others. Now, I admit freely – I hate it when they are right.

We all have these moments. They occur when you least expect them. I don’t have the opportunity now to hand out appologies (with one exception), but just in case this might be read by one of the interested parties, here is it – you were right. Man, were you right. I was wrong. I should have listened. I will try harder next time.

oops… my bad

I think I have set myself up once again to be found prior to any first dates that might happen. I set up an email address solely for the purpose of distribution in the online dating world, but sadly, I was once again a moron and chose one that was too similar (ok… it was exactly the same) to my flickr name. Crap. Oh well.

So in other words, if you are here because of the online dating thing and because Google is just that good, kudos to you, but please – don’t be a dick like that last date (check the archives if you are that interested… not much to see though) and not tell me that you have already been to my site. If you do that, and you are anything like him, you are overdue in what is coming to you. I would like to know if you have come across this site, and what you think. I like comments, but that doesn’t mean I am going to remove something because someone throws a hissy fit. I self edit and I edit based on the audience. Names are not liberally used, but then I am not one of those that just used the first letter of a persons name when writing about them (I just think that is dumb).

In other news, I now have a mega-sexy, 19″ flat panel monitor at home, and yes – it is everything I could have imagined and more. :)
