Since work is........well..........taking too long and sucking the life out of me, I would like to avoid that and share my plans for the week end.
On Sunday we will be going to Fan Expo I have never seen this before. I'm quite excited. There should be ample opportunity to people watch.
I was watching television last night. I know big surprise. There was this commercial:

The only thing I am concerned about is the grossness when you lift up that sticky stuff. it actually took a lot of will power not call up those friendly people on the shopping channel and place an order. What stopped me was that I get nauseous trying to clean out the vacuum.
The cats are all sleepy and it is having its affect on me. I'm to watch more television.
Good night everyone.

Harsh Winds

On Friday it took me about an hour longer to get home than normal from work. We actually experienced a tornado. Where I live wasn't hit. There were just incredibly high winds and lightning. Very impressive nonetheless. Other sections of my town were not so lucky. While I was fighting traffic and intense weather conditions to arrive home, other people were able to take pictures of the event.

I haven't posted too many photos lately, but I have been knitting.
These are my Samarkand socks from the Pentathlon event on Ravelry:

To be honest, I'm not sure I'm going to make this deadline. Work has been difficult. I'm in the process of mapping all of the school runs for our area. Unfortunately, we did not receive the runs from the board until Thursday. As a consequence, I have been remaining late at work to try and have them ready for the start up meeting the drivers will attend on Tuesday. I am in charge of the afternoon runs while the other dispatcher is in charge of the mornings. I wish they would let me drink at work. :( It might make the experience a little less painful.

Aw well. I'm off to mellow out so I can try and sleep tonight. Lately, I've been much to wired to sleep for more than 3 hours at a time.
I hope you all had a wonderful week end.
