v. relaxing weekend. mostly WoW. went to the EB to get the strat guide because i hate looking for things and am a big cheater. while i was there i picked up katamari damacy. the earth, so full of things! sunday night we actually left the house to see carnivale on the BIG screen at nomadicryan's. during which i also snorked down a pomegranate martini etc. tolerance: low. i had fun though. :) possible return of my knitting habit, although i'm still intimidated after my aborted sock experience. welcome the new flagrant pigtail icon. i wanted something that was a picture of me but with the "growing out" going on, good pictures cannot be taken.

Don't worry, I can show you again how to do those things. :)

I read something this morning that made me think of you; it's a condition known as "second sock syndrome" whereby the first sock is such a major suck-ass pain in the nether-regions to make that the second never even gets cast-on. It's apparently very common. So I think you should go ahead and forget about that sock in lieu of making something more gratifying and quick and fun--like a scarf--instead.

hahaha! I have the same syndrome, only it's early onset - it's called "no-heel syndrome". Where you get to the point in the pattern where you are supposed to turn the heel and then stop knitting for two years. :)

And I have the perfect green and black fuzzy stuff waiting to be made into one of those cute skinny scarves that are all the rage with the kids today.

Awesome, I really do hope you come early next week to give it another try (we met around 6pm yesterday). I love the fuzzy eyelash yarns. They're really easy to work with, they're VERY forgiving, and they look great.

Clearly, the better solution to a $25 strategy guide is a second computer monitor.

I must be crazy. I have two monitors at home now, and I've been leaving the 2nd one off while gaming.

I alt-tab all the time. But I shadowmeld first, just in case. :)

I spent my sick day yesterday WoWing. Much fun was had, especially since I just got cat form and can now walk around all stealthy-like when I need to!

You must have a more powerful computer than me, because alt-tabbing for me creates a major time consuming grind moment that probably wouldn't be alleviated by a second monitor. It just doesn't want to run both WoW and Firefox. :(
