elfie_chan: MY cup of tea! (Default)
It's odd to realize that updating LJ has been so low on my list of Things To Do. Lots has been going on in my life (as usual), and things have been busier than ever. "Lemme 'splain. No, that would take too long. Lemme sum up."

Egil's! )
Sixth-Graders! )

I think that's it for now. I had what I call "The Explody-Insides Disease" from Sunday night through Tuesday, and my tummy's feeling a bit unstable this morning. I probably just need breakfast. Next time: High School Observation, Summer Plans, and Socks!

I have this stuffed black sheep that is about the size of my cat. The sheep sits comfortably on a cushion on the still-folded-out couch-bed (yes, it's been a bed instead of a couch ever since Midwinter's, and it now doubles as a storage space for yet more stuff that really needs to be put away). Just a few seconds ago, Loki walked up to the sheep and sniffed it, then looked at me as if to say, "What is this thing doing on my cushion?!" Now, Loki seeks a more suitable place to rest his regal self, preferably on something black in a sunbeam. At the moment, he appears to be considering my suede coat.

I am almost finished entering the Egil's preregistrations into my ingenious spreadsheet. Very few people did things that caused me to question them, and I shall be calling those people and getting some answers. Homework proceeds apace, despite the fact that I hate doing homework. My practicum is actually all kinds of fun--I am a little nervous about what will happen when I actually get to teach the sixth-graders for two weeks. I am about 85% certain that I will not be eaten alive, but I'm going to practice my lion-taming skills, just in case.

I am still working on getting photos done for the Kitten Assembly Instructions, as well as Slug Instructions. The Kitten Assembly Instructions will be posted as soon as I, my camera, and an unassembled kitten are in the same place at the same time. Slug Instructions may take a bit longer.

I have not yet reported on the March Adiantum Arts and Sciences Saturday. It was a blast. I brought my spinning wheel and played with it. I cannot really say that I spun anything, but I practiced. I also taught [livejournal.com profile] corvideye how to do a basic fingerloop braid, and she taught herself how to do a flat braid. That was all kinds of fun. [livejournal.com profile] corvideye also brought many, many fibers for us to look at and touch. Yak is neat. I worked on my purple socks, which are finally done. I will post pictures soon and use them to illustrate the Importance of Gauge. Clean socks should not be able to stand up by themselves. [livejournal.com profile] hl_mauera also finished her first sock. Having done that, she immediately cast on the second one. No Second Sock Syndrome Sufferer, She. (Say that three times fast.) I also brought lots of scribal stuff, and many people painted (including [livejournal.com profile] fearga, who says that charter painting is very relaxing). Also, as a direct result of the A&S Saturday, I had a new person at our last Scribal Night. I keep getting her name wrong, but she forgives me.

The next A&S day is April 15, the day after my Brother's Wedding. (Yes, that deserves the Capital Letters of Foreboding.) Alex and I have tickets for the ballet that day, but we plan to go to the A&S day in the morning before the ballet and in the afternoon afterwards. It is so nice to get together with lots of people and work on projects.

Speaking of projects, I've got lots of them to finish by Egil's. Many of these are scribal projects. I love art, and I would much rather do that than schoolwork. *sigh*

Tomorrow is Easter. [livejournal.com profile] alysaundre and I will be going over to my parents' house for dinner. I will be getting my mom on LJ, so I'll keep you all posted on her username so you can all stalk befriend her. My brother is also on LJ, but I can't remember his username. I'll let you all know when I find out.

What else can I tell you? I'm busy, as usual, but things seem calmer today because I have no homework on Monday (though I do have class) and I have no Tech class (though I really should go and work on my Tech projects). Plus, I have a wonderful husband who just generally makes me grateful to be me every single day.

And now, it is time for me to go and finish up entering those preregistrations.

This has been my morning thus far:

(Scene: Elfie is in bed with the covers over her head, dozing on and off and trying very hard not to think about the things she needs to do today. The time is about 7:30 am.)
PHONE: Answer me! Answer me!
ELFIE: Mrrrgh. Stupid phone. Begone.
ALEX: Stupid phone! *answers it* Hello? Hello? *bad word of some kind*
PHONE: *is mockingly silent*

(An hour later.)
PHONE: Answer me! Answer me!
ALEX: *answers phone again* Hello? Hello? Oh, hi! *has actual conversation*
ELFIE: Might as well get up. *gets up, stumbles to bathroom, dons terry robe, goes to living room*

(Scene: Living room. Elfie curls up on the couch and stares blearily at the television, not really seeing it but wondering why people appear to be shooting one another repeatedly.)
ELFIE'S BRAIN: Does Not Compute. Please insert Coffee and Reboot.
ELFIE: Can't move.
ALEX: *appears suddenly* EAT THIS COOKIE!
ELFIE: *blinks, but obeys* 'nk you.
ESPRESSO MACHINE: *makes noises*
ALEX: *reappears suddenly with cup of espresso* DRINK COFFEE!
ELFIE: *takes coffee gratefully* Thank you. *adores husband*
ELFIE'S BRAIN: Whirr...whirr...beep! Booting EOS**.

And now I must go and do more work. Please to be thinking happy thoughts in this direction--it would be really nice if the rain stopped before Egil's.

**EOS = Elfie Operating System
