So That is What Happens When I'm Not at Home!?!?

Another piece of the puzzle. I'm trying so very hard to finish off my Berlin socks for the Sock Knitters Pentathlon group on Ravelry, except I have hit a little snag:

I even have a witness and photographic evidence:

"Dude! What are you doing?"

"Nothing. I'm bathing"

"Ya right. Mom will neuter you"

"I believe she already did. Remember? Had that little nap in the car. Woke up and no balls. This is payback!"

"I'm staying over here. I refuse to be guilty because of association"

"Do you think she will really notice?"

I just finished watching The Wizard. Do you remember that movie? Big 80s flick. It was like a giant advertisement for Nintendo. I thought that movie was the shit. I recently bought most of those old skool games for PS2. Can you believe that? An awesome huge byte system and I play 2 bit games. Hehehe. I love it.

The week is almost complete. Tomorrow I'm looking forward to going to the track for a work thing. I enjoy that place. The track, not work. I remember going with my younger sister, father and great uncle many a Saturday night. Very fond memories.

I'm just going to try and settle down and watch Weeds. I am really getting into this show. I can't believe I missed so much of it when it started on television. I'm doing my very best to catch up on the many episodes I missed thanks to my friend PC. Have a good night everyone. Hope the rain doesn't drown you all out.

No Pink, But There Will be Purple!

I checked out my stash of hair dye. I have miscalculated the amount of pink dye I stored. I did however, find some ultra-violet. Guess what colour my hair is now?

I like the effect. I can hide it if I need to for whatever absurd work related reason. Most people are very OK with my odd choice of hair colour. I'm glad. I tend not to think of others when I do things for myself. I chose this bottle because of the name of the colour: Ultra-Violet. It reminded me of the movie with Milla Jovovich. The one line is what got me: "I can kill them". I love strong female leads.


Colour hidden.

I have done a little knitting this evening waiting for the dye to hold. It's amazing what you can accomplish when a cool movie is on. We were watching Conan the Barbarian tonight. Wow, Arnold looked young. I don't think he knew much of the English language when this was made. I think you can count on your fingers the amount of words he spoke.
I worked on my funky mittens but had to lay them aside because they make excellent pillows.

After my mitts were commandeered, I worked on my Berlin socks again.
Remember these:

I've done four repeats. I think now I will begin the heel. Before, I felt they were too short. I like a sock to have a bit of length to go over my ankle comfortably. Not much else happened this week end. It was very quiet. I enjoyed it so much because now with the summer holidays soon here, I will be on call more week ends because the other dispatcher goes for the month of July. I take my quiet time when I can. Hope you are all well.
