Last week, we got hit by lightning! I don't know if we really did or not, but something in my area did, and it fried my computer's speakers, the ac/dc adaptor on the plug, and the ethernet card and the logic card in the motherboard! That's a whole big bunch of geekery that I don't really understand, but it added up to me not having a computer. Quel horreur! There was updating to be done! Now, to do it in backwards fashion...
*My Mummy is coming to visit me for my birthday!!!
*I started the swatch for my Clapotis, the one that I am making using 500 [turned out to be 750, actually] yards of SWTC's Bamboo. The Swatch has become something else. I'm up to the last repeat of the increase section. Fast knit, and I really like it!
*I have FINISHED The Scarf for Cheetah! It is ready to be wrapped and sent, along with some other giftie type things. I sure hope she likes it! I really like the yarn I used, I am glad that I kept looking for the 'right' stuff.
*Luciano Pavarotti died, taking that magnificent voice with him. The rest is silence, and it is deafening.
*Steve Fossett is missing in Nevada. This breaks my heart at the same time that it makes me very greatful that my father had the time (and inclination) to radio his position when he was going down. If there is a tiny bit of silver lining in this, six other previously uncharted crash sites have been discovered, and will be explored and mapped.
*We had knit night at the Falcon Pub on Labour Day, and there was merriment! There were prizes for telling stories about penii! There was hilarity coming up with Roller Derby Girl names! Best of all, I got to spend time with some fabulous guys and dolls, and have a couple of Strongbow ciders. It was grrrrreat.
*I got to celebrate a whole big bunch of birthdays last month! Happy birthday to The August Betties, Spanko, and (September) Cheryl!!
*I started September by buying yarn! Tell you all about it later, taters!
