I’ve got my fingers crossed!

As I am wont to do when I am deathly bored at work, I decided to go on a yarn “window shopping” spree. Just in case I come into some strange money windfall and I have loads of extra to play around with, I can buy some. I’m actually looking to knit up some lacy stuff. So I’m constantly looking for some lace/sock yarn that would look pretty all done up in something lacy.

So I’ve been following WendyKnits on Plurk for a fair bit, and enjoying her blog posts about all sorts of things, and lately, my life has been all about knitting and crocheting, though more knitting than crocheting.

Anyway, whenever I go searching for new places to seek out yarn, I remember Wendy talking about Loopy Ewe. So I head there and find out that they’ve got their Sock Club for 2009 open. I signed up for the lottery and I’ve now got my fingers crossed that I get picked. I’m rather excited about it actually.

I’m also thinking of ways to blog more. Thinking of things that I could blog about so that I’m doing a bit more writing, which is what any aspiring writer should be doing, right??

Every now and again I go through this crazy phase of browsing though a ridiculous number of lolcat images on icanhascheezburger.com. Though this one was shared with me, and I love it. Because it has my beloved Doctor on it.

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button

The movie as a stand alone story, wasn’t so bad, to be honest. However, this movie has absolutely nothing to do with the book. None, at all, except a shared title and a few character names. I’m talking the entire story has been reworked and I don’t particularly like it. It doesn’t fit with how the book went.

This is a rental type of movie, definitely not a going out to the theater type of movie. I wish I could have enjoyed it more.

And it was WAY too long. WAY WAY too long.
