I Talk To Myself A Lot

Holy Hell.

It's Thanksgiving this week! How did that even happen?

This is what I never knew about doing the school/work combo - it eats time like it was a bag of (fill in your favorite snacky item here - salt & vinegar chips for me, thanks).

All of a sudden I'm down to the last of my third paper, and the start of my fourth and final.

Without seeming to feel it, I've managed to get to my last set of homework and quizzes for math, and will be facing my final in just a couple of weeks. Not to brag, but I also got 101% on my most recent test. GO ME.

On top of that there's been Derby (The Kid won her most recent bout, by the way), and moving TR's brother & wife (his brother's wife, not TR's DUH). I managed to pack the be-all end-all of emergency supply boxes, too, containing tea, coffee, mac and cheese and spaghetti. You could seriously live a week on that box.

Too bad I hid the silverware (they found it eventually).

Anyway, point is I've been unbelievably busy. Not too busy for you, baby, don't cry! Just too busy to blog.

Today, though, I felt the need to share, even though I've probably alienated everyone by now with my absence. At least it's there, right?

But what to talk about?

How about the fact that The Kid has the ENTIRE week off for Thanksgiving? We never got the whole week off, what gives?! Not that she's complaining. She's got an entire week of crafting and sleeping in and watching episodes of Monk on the Netflix.

(By the way, if you have internet and a Blu-Ray, a Wii, a PS3, TiVo or one of those fancy internet TVs, Netflix now has a streaming-only option for their service for 8 bucks a month. It's awesome! Who needs cable! Netflix should give me a month's credit for plugging them. Spread the word.)

Oh and guess what! I'm going to be in Geek Bowl 2011 in January. It's the throw-down event of the year for Geeks Who Drink, and I'm super excited! Even if we don't win it will be awesome fun. We're thinking costumes, even - maybe hats. Who knows. It doesn't matter, really, because I will be too busy being thrilled to be part of the world's biggest nerd herd.

How are we preparing? Mexican food and 5-hour Energy Drinks. We will ROCK IT.

Let's see, what else.

TR bought a house! He should have keys in hand today, in fact, and I'm so excited for him. It's an excellent house with an unbelievable view and the most beautiful oak tree out front. It has only the minorest of needs (minorest? Really, Mimi?), all which are fixable with no real fuss, and I think he's going to be really happy there.


He'll be happy once the move is done. Moving SUCKS, but since he's smartly hiring movers it should be less horrific than one might usually expect. No taking fifty loads in various cars, or arguing with U-Haul. No back-breaking labor (besides the actual box-packing).

Movers are SO worth the money.

Anyway it's lovely inside, and I am really going to have to restrain the Kraft Krazy. When I looked at it I could almost see the floor pillows for the fire-place cozy. I could feel the weight of firewood in the hand-made log-carrier. I could nearly feel the whoosh of cotton slipping between my fingers as it feeds under the piercing needle, folding and pressing itself, creating neat lines and...


Ahem. Sorry.

Craft porn. It happens.

Anyway, it's an awesome house, which will only get awesomer (awesomer? REALLY MIMI?) when he puts his touches on it all. I predict tikis.

Also, speaking of Kraft Krazy...

I love this so much

Just in case you thought I was the only one.

Actually I haven't been crafting much lately, I've been TOO BUSY, but I have some projects lined up. I was almost thinking no crafting might happen this holiday season, but that was just crazy talk.

It might not be much, it certainly won't be an embroidered Robert Smith pillow, but it'll be something!

Alright...back to my homework.

That is soooo cool. I luvs me some Robert Smith. :) Good luck with maintaining control with regard to over Krafting TR's new pad.

I am *determined* to restrain myself...but I trust him to say ENOUGH ALREADY, CRAZYCAKES. :)

I draw the line at wallpapering, so he's safe there.
