Phew. Saturday is finally here, and my life force is still intact.
Beatrice approves greatly of the Moderne Log Cabin blanket. Apparently the pale blue block is best for snuggly observation of humans.
And also playing and general cuteness.
Sleeping is not colour-specific, but it helps to have toys close by.
So in “finally it’s Saturday and I made it through the week” news, I not only made it through my first week as an instructor (1 down! only 11 to go!) I made it through my oral dissertation defense yesterday. It is unfortunately #1 of 2, not the final one (sometime this spring), but I got it done and although I have revisions to work on in the next few weeks, it is nothing on the level of a complete rewrite or scrapping whole chapters, so all in all it was fairly reasonable.
Needless to say, after that I went for lunch with my supervisor and that was lovely (including some wine, yesiree), and she gifted me with a copy of The Knitting Circle. Then, I carried on to The Purple Purl, where I haven’t been since they opened at the end of October! I hung out with Jennifer and Miko there for a bit (I may have gotten some sock yarn as a treat, heck, on that day of all days i figured stash be damned), as well as MJ (who, dudes, is crocheting her own wedding dress), and also Jen whose adorable wee one Fenner decided I was an appropriate enough human to sit with for a short while and sucked happily on my fingers. Then I went with the Purple Purl ladies to ‘Drunken Knitting’ (for the first time) but couldn’t stay much longer than a pint and a burger as by 9pm I was hitting the wall and needed to get home and conk out.
Beatrice has spent last night and this morning being clingy and reinforming me of the proper cat priorities after I sorrily neglected her most of this week in favour of the Real World. My plans for today involve a lot of knitting, eating, drinking, and sitting on my bum. In fact, let me get right back to that now…
