Hello again.

So, as you can probably figure out by the huge gaps between my posts, I'm not very good at posting regularly. I get on the computer to write something, and I end up playing Mario or something. But here I am now!

School's out now, so I've got a lot more free time. Mostly spent reading, knitting, cleaning, or playing KoTOR, a Star Wars video game (that I beat yesterday!). Yes, I do know I am a nerd, I don't need reminding. For the record, I DON'T play any other Star Wars games, read Star Wars books or comics, or edit the Star Wars "Wookieepedia", so that should be a few points in my favor.

Also, I think I deserve some recognition for something. I was in Joann's the other day, and I didn't buy any yarn! I should get a round of applause for my self-restraint. I did buy a pair of needles, but they were size US17, which I didn't have already. Plus, they were on sale for like 97 cents. I couldn't afford *not* to buy them. I love Joann's because they have the most random sales. You'll look at the crochet hooks, and only one size will be on sale, not the rest. It's really strange.

I'm making practically no progress on the shirt I'm knitting from the bamboo yarn. Each row takes about 5 minutes to knit, so its slow work. I usually do projects with huge needles and bulky yarn when I can, so I'm getting a little impatient. Another cause for stress, I can't get the hang of cables. I don't have a resident knitter to talk to or to show me anything, so I'm teaching myself everything from books.

In other news, I just finished reading Lost Souls by Poppy Z. Brite. It freaked me out pretty bad, but that's a good thing because I love horror books, especially ones about vampires. I tried to write a vampire novel one time for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writer's Month, it's this thing where you have to write a 50,000 word novel in one month), but I failed. I'm also continuing to read the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series by Laurell K. Hamilton.

Okay, I'm gonna sign off now, mostly because I can't think of anything else to write about. Adios, amigos!

If it makes you feel like any less of a nerd, I actually noticed that you committed a comma splice.

And you ROCK for not buying anything (well, much) at Joanns! Go you!
