* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence along with these instructions (and the previous sentences).
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.
Surprise, surprise, the nearest book is one by the Yarn Harlot.

|syd___||05:21 pm - larger needles to borrow?|
so i decided to get myself knitting again with a project that i'm not overly invested in the beauty of, but rather with the purpose. i know the woman that organizes a more anarchist support resource for houseless folks. and i asked her if she knew of some folks that would appreciate scarves. she said yes. so here i go.
i found some woolease thick and quck in my random bags of yarn gifted from others, however, my largest needles are size 10. and with how tight i knit... doesn't work so well. so...anyone got some shorter fatter needles to loan for the project? anyone want to clear out some random acrylic yarn you probably weren't gonna use?

|doomslippers||10:30 pm - Well, I just did it.|
I just quit my job today.
And guess what! We're in the middle of a recession! What awesome timing! I'll bet that makes me the smartest fucking girl in the whole wide world!
If you want the gorey details, you'll have to ply me with a drink, or two or twenty.
I can't knit my way out of this one, can I?
Does anyone know of some cushy corporation with benifits who is hiring? Just checking.

|doomslippers||06:03 pm - OMFG Moving|
Okay, so now that we are all moving, I have a proposition: Knitting and crafting at my house on Monday nights. We can make food, and not worry about whether or not the hot water is on or if the toilet seat is broken in have or or or and so on. I have moved the toys to my house, so this will still be a kid-friendly gathering. Once everything is put away (gasp!) my house will even be mostly baby proof.
I like monday nights so far, but the meeting time is up for negotiations.
Okay off to eat dinner and finish cleaning out the commune.

I miss all of my knitty girls! If anyone is up for meeting tomorrow (possibly at the coffee shop since the commune is in.......disarray) let me know. It sounds like everyone has a lot of things going on, so if not tomorrow, then some other time.
