markus is packing

So I am blogging from his iPod touch. So neat.

Less neat is all the packing I need to do before I take off for seattle Wednesday morning. I don't think I'm even entirely UNpacked from spring quarter yet. Also I have a whole list of things to finish acquiring cheaply (I did the best bargain shopping at thrift stores last week. So much incredibly cheap stuff!).

Also, a nine year old at camp told an excellent yo mama joke the other day. I giggled. Hehe. Yo mama's so old, she went to high school with john mccain!

I've been clustering.

My most recent kick.

The best thrift store adventure EVER..

... would include stumbling upon these for $2.99 each at a local Goodwill (they actually live on the internet, unfortunately)

My mom pulled out her old sewing machine this afternoon, and taught me to use it! I'm super excited about all the possibilities. I wung it and ended up with a goofy skirt this afternoon (I'd picked up a yard of the fabric for a $1.49 at a thrift store last week).

I'm pretty pumped about sewing my first real piece of clothing. I even took a picture for my grandma.

Hydrocodene-Induced Neck Warmers

I'm still all drugged up (and hiccuping) from the removal of my wisdom teeth Wednesday morning, so tonight, these guys appeared while I ate pudding and watched the Olympics. I'm partial to the darker blue one. (I was inspired by these, although mine are just a double stitched crochet - no where near as fancy.)

I made a shirt out of a pillowcase! I'm beyond excited. I'll post a picture, once I'm less in serious pain/drugged up from the removal of my wisdom teeth.

I'm such a nerd.

These made me laugh so hard.

14. Long separated by cruel fate, the star-crossed lovers raced across the grassy field toward each other like two freight trains, one having left Cleveland at 6:36 p.m. traveling at 55 mph, the other from Topeka at 4:19 p.m. at a speed of 35 mph.

Using my melted Cake cassette. I'm really excited. I almost had a craft spasm and made it tonight, but I couldn't find any zipper in the house.
