Overload!

So, yarn safaris are wonderful and horrible. On Friday, after work, I went to the Eastern Shore with a friend from work so that we could check out the yarn shops in Easton and St. Michael's. And I spent wayyyy too much money. But I bought some beautiful stuff, including more Blue Heron Yarns (*squee!*) and you'll get to see some as Friday Yarn Pr0n. My friend had better self control than I did, but she got some Blue Heron too. I think it's my new favorite yarn. *sigh*

Also, the chainmaille beginner kits that said friend and I ordered came in on Friday. WOOOOT!!! I'm so psyched. I have super awesome plans for chainmaille. At least I hope they're super awesome. They could, I suppose, turn out to be super lame. But I'm going with super awesome.

So all of this happened on Friday. Why am I not posting until Sunday night? Well, because on Friday when I got home I crashed hard. And yesterday, my trivia team went to play in the quarterfinals for our trivia tournament. We came in third!!! WOOOOO! We were actually kinda surprised we did so well... And after that, my man and I went to hang out with Pam and her friends because she was awesome and invited us. It was a great time; Pam has awesome friends. And she kicks my butt at Karaoke Revolution. I need to practice more. ;)

Also, we just got new internet service, so I had to coax my computer to connect to the new network. I definitely need a new computer, one that's not senile. Any recommendations?

All this while I really want to get moving on quite a few crafts. I've gotta keep making progress on my Razor Cami, can't wait to get together with my friend outside of work so we can start learning maille, I've got design ideas I want to work on, a book I'm trying to read, and I want to get more time on my wheel. Oh and I have fleece to scour. Half of which has been in the trunk of my car for weeks. Ummm... gotta go...

I'm so glad you guys had a good time!

And Carrie - anytime you want a rematch, I'm game. Although I'm thinking that my ridiculously large KR playlist has put me at enough of an advantage that maaaaaaaybe it's time to bump myself up to (*gulp*) the hard level. Heaven help us all...
