elfie_chan: MY cup of tea! (Default)
Okay, lovely people. My darling Alex has joined the LJ Revolution! Head on over to [ profile] alysaundre and say "hi!" And be nice. *firm look*

In other news, here is my response to [ profile] hrothgar1's Laurel Challenge back on this entry.
Thinking Positively )

A lot of the solutions I propose for my shortcomings seem so simple. Also, now that I am a bit further away from the event and can view it more objectively, I didn't do a horrible job. That does not mean, however, that I won't take all of you up on your offers of help! Mwahaha.

I have a lot of homework to do today, and I'm avoiding it! Wheeeeeee! I will get it done; I just don't want to work on it right now. So there.

I'm working on an entry in which I will post my modified knitted kitten pattern, as well as the "Kitten Formula" that I have worked out. I have been informed that there are many people up North who want one, and kittens are a great way to use small amounts of handspun!

I also feel that I should warn those who read this journal that I will be posting photos and ramblings on my fiddly string crafts here as well as in [ profile] needle_ninja. I'm trying to decide whether I should keep [ profile] needle_ninja at all, or just combine the two journals. Thoughts?

Time to go and glare at my homework in a meaningful way until it quails before me and finishes itself.

Well, this is going to be my last day of no school this week, I hope. We've been pretty much snowed in for the past two days and, while that's nice for a while, I'm very uncomfortable with the amount of school I'm missing. Especially since I'll need to do make-up work. And there's an event this weekend that we need to paint charters for. (Not too many, and most of them are already painted, but still.) The weatherman says that things are supposed to warm up and thaw later this week. As long as they don't freeze again, I'm happy. Alex and I may be going down to the valley tonight with overnight bags if things don't shape up--I need to be in school tomorrow.

I was highly amused--and mildly overwhelmed--by the response that The Slug received on the different communities where I posted him. The pattern is, thus far, still incredibly messy scratchings in my notebook. It will probably not even be typed up for at least three weeks--I just don't have time with everything else I'm trying to get done. It also feels a bit odd to me--I knit it up mostly as a joke with the idea of knitting more later, and now it seems like lots of people want one. Who knew that slugs would be so attractive? I will admit, it is a snuggly slug. (Say that three times fast.)

It snowed like mad and pelted us with freezing rain up here yesterday, and then it started to melt. Today, my world is a sheet of ice. Yesterday, we tried to get me to school, but the truck slipped off the driveway (in four-wheel drive, no less!). We walked back to the house (not a long walk; we didn't get far), and Alex went out later and got the truck back into the driveway. We're safe and warm, but we're not going anywhere this morning.

I need to do some homework, I'm sure. I have two papers due at the end of this month. They shouldn't be too bad, but I really should get to work on them. I also need to ponder Midwinter's garb. I'm thinking tunics. Nice, cozy warm, wool, full-length tunics. I have a feeling it's going to be chilly, but you couldn't drag me away from Midwinter's this year with wild horses. Or wildebeests. Or anything. Slugs, even.

Time for coffee.
