Friday (Hyperactive) News Round-Up

More about me than you ever wanted to know

1. Sorry for the lack of posts this week. Between my class ending and my upcoming trips, things have been crazy.
2. I'm about 90% done with my final project for my class (due Monday). Woohooo!
3. This weekend is the aforementioned trip to CT and NYC. I am beyond excited.
4. AND my birthday is Sunday!!!!
5. It seems to be the thing recently for socks to narrate such excursions. At first it was just one sock, but others are doing now too, so I figured I might as well.
6. To facilitate the above, I bought a skein of Reynolds Swizzle in Forest at lunchtime today. Look for the sock's report soon.
7. I've started to think I may be just a wee bit obsessed with knitting. Today I started rather lengthy knitting threads on two non-knit-related e-mail lists.
8. I have also concluded that there should be a 24-hour knitting hotline. I spoke to a long distance friend several times on the phone yesterday trying to help her through her first sock, and do you know how hard phone knitting support is? (Yes, you probably do.) Now, I enjoyed it greatly and am glad she called, but what about all those knitters who don't have a knitting friend sitting at a desk all day and happy to be distracted? An 800 number is in order, clearly.
9. Oh, and I am determined to get to at least one NYC yarn store, probably The Yarn Connection because it's just a few blocks from the hotel.
10. See? I'm doing it already. Whenever we're in New York, my dad (the resident NY expert) tells us that wherever we're headed is "just a couple of blocks that way." (FYI: I have learned from experience that the Metropolitan is not, in fact, just a couple of blocks from Grand Central. In case any other fathers were spreading that particular rumor.) Anyway, I knew I'd start using the same phrasing when describing where we were going to my boyfriend. Oh well.
11. I am now just blathering so I should probably stop torturing you and try to get through my last hour at work.
12. Did I mention that this weekend is my birthday? Just checking.
13. Oh, and did I mention that we're staying at the Library Hotel? So cool.
14. Okay, really going now.
