Bye bye vanpire.

I really enjoyed the Sienna. She was a good ride for a vanpire. The lease was going to end this fall but the loyalty program right now at Toyota made me go look early. I drove off with it this morning.

I do indeed still knit! I finished that lovely ITW “Return to Warmth” merino on the Canadian Production Wheel (which has totally spoiled me). It turned into a skein of yummy yarn measuring 538 yards and weighing in at 98 grams. Three ply.


I know. I’m kind of impressed myself.

I almost immediately broke out the ball winder and made to knit with it.   I started the first sock last Wednesday evening.  I just grafted the toe closed using a method I read about here.  I have to admit, I kind of liked this method!


You can see my purty new Stitched by JessaLu bag.  I got it this weekend at Tina’s shindig upstate.

This is going to be a short post. Rough day at work. I’m off to start the second sock.

Craft on!

Best Craigslist Post EVER

March 5th, 2010 · 12 Comments

After a few years of practicing law, I have realized that my law degree is useless and that I don’t want to be a lawyer anymore. I bought it for over $150,000 (brand new), but I will let it go for $112,281, which is the current outstanding amount of my student loan balance.

It measure 8 1/2 x 11 inches. Cum Laude version. It’s printed on super-fancy parchment paper (looks like the Constitution, but newer).

This priceless collectible will permit you to be surrounded by hobby-less, anal assholes whose entire life is dictated by hourly billing and valued by the number of typos they can pick out in any given document. Additionally, this piece of paper has the amazing ability to keep you from doing what you really want to do in life, all in the name of purported prestige and financial success. Finally, superficial girls will swoon over you with retarded thoughts of “sugar daddy” when they hear that you are a lawyer.

Please note that this piece of shit isn’t even written in English. It’s in Latin, but I have the translation.

This is actually a serious post. I will really sell this piece of shit. $112,281 or best offer. E-mail Alex.

It was really here.  I wonder how much I could sell my non-cum laude version for 😉 And people wonder why I gave it all up to become a software developer!
