So, I went to the opening ceremonies for Team Boston and met some uber-wonderful knitters--- all just 100% better than their blogs. Who did I meet?
- Adrian of Hello Yarn! Oh, I drool over her yarns...and she's fabu in "real life"
- Stitchy of Stitchy McYarnpants...our SOs have more in common than anyone would think!
- Monica from Two Left Needles....oh my.. you think she's all quiet and then BAM! She hits you with a joke or comment that makes you fall over!~
- Jackie- of the JKC project... It's always fun when you instantly know if someone is a "Boston suburb local"
- Maryse... way too funny! She was keeping me in stitches...
- Amber of GeekPixie--- a whole lot of fun! I kinda felt bad... she never did get a Tuna Melt...but she did get the two next-best-things: ice cream and beer (now, that's a girl I can hang with!)
- Wendy -- who doesn't look so Bookish, but was really great at working the room! I think she managed to say hello, sit down, knit and have a complete conversation with everyone in the room
- I saw Colleen there, but didn't get to say hello... and there were so many others ( I know I am forgetting like at least 10!)
I have some photos to post, but not tonight...I'm sleepy. :)
I WON SOMETHING:
over at Chappy's Mom, she was having a contest: the purpose was to give her a vote for a button for her new sweater and give her a really good reason to use that button--- my vote was a little risque but (wait for it people...i've never won anything!)
I got some cool Opal sock yarn (LOLLIPOP) that I have never used before...I'm thinking: JAYWALKERs! I will post a pic soon...camera is acting weird.
UPDATE ON DAD:
he started chemo and radiation on Thursday- today is the 1st day he's been "sick"... generally looks like flu-like symptoms, which they said could happen. He's in good spirits and the chemo (24 hours a day for 4 days) stops on Monday--- then radiation until week 5-- then back on this 24 hours/4 days chemo again. It's a little weird, but hey- the less chemo the better, right? It's "prophylactic chemo" b/c it hasn't spread beyond the tumor itself.
UPDATE ON MINI and PC:
we signed another lease today... funny, once one landlord shafts you (after a 2 hour lecture on the legality of a lease, THEY break it!)--- the actual lease doesn't feel binding at all. If all goes according to plan (well, once we move in, I'll feel like it's "really " happening)-- we'll be Newton-ites (is this a word?) in March 1. Secret Pal- keep sending the packages to my parent's house... we don't want any more mix ups. :)
