The End is Near...

That's right, my friends, this semester is almost over. Four more weeks, and then we can wallow in sweet, sweet summer vacation. At least until summer classes begin. *sigh*
Spare time to knit 'n' do other stuff has been scarce, and besides, my brain has long since fried. I used to love to read whenever I could get the chance, but this semester my extracurricular reading has been so sad. My brain shuts off all but the simplest of functions during leisure time, so it just can't absorb any of the books I want to read. I've been reduced to reading very simple material, such as H.P. and some old books from my "young adult reader" days. It's so pathetic I don't know whether to laugh or cry.
I'm done knitting my Classy, but it needs to be blocked and fringed, and I'm far too lazy for that. So it's sitting in a corner being ignored. Don't bother calling FOPS (Finished Object Protection Services) because they don't exist.
Hmm, what can I talk about? Um, back in the beginning of this year, I got tired of blowing my money on circular needles of all shapes and sizes. $7-$10 /needle set = big bucks out the door, you circular bastards. So I bought a Denise needles set on a recommendation. I've heard knitters rave annoyingly about these, which turned me off, but I was desperate to save money, and didn't mind as long as they worked. Well, I hate to say this but...... I really LOVE these needles. You can pick and choose, mix and match the needle size and length; it provokes a blissful satisfaction similar to using legos to build a perfect dildo (not that I've done that, sickos) (dude, I should have said "erector set;" how kinky!). Anyways, the set was pricey - mine was about $40 or $45 - but when you think how many needle combinations you can do with the set, that price seems pretty damned reasonable. Be a cheap-ass like me and buy it.


A couple of times over spring break, and once a few of weekends ago, I managed to actually see my friends. It was so freaking great, I just can't describe. I hadn't seen any of them since the beginning of the semester. I kept thinking, "I really love these people" and "I'd forgotten what being social was like." I only realized then how horribly lonely I'd been feeling without them. There is truly nothing like having awesome friends.

how come no one comments on your incredibly witty blog? are they frightened by the use of such words as "erector set"? and martha satan?? I just don't get it. All I have to say that if it wasn't for this blog (however scarce it is updated) I would not get my dose of crazy humor and I may also begin to doubt that you exist seeing as how I dont ever bloody see you....its a sad sad day. But school is almost over, I can almost see the end...nope, never mind that wasn't it....

haha, I guess I'm like the creepy phantom friend.
hey, you're one to talk. when was the last time I saw an update on Rira's blog? Never. There's now only Laura's blog to amuse me and she's all, "look at me, I'm a glamorous model and I'm cooler and sexier than you." heheh.
dude, I can see the end. It's so close, it's biting my nose.
