(How's THAT for alliteration?)
Scale day, and I lost 1 pound. Why, oh, WHY do I go up with a bullet, but down with a feather?
I know, be happy I lost.
I guess it's mostly because I really want to get the new speakers for the computer. The speaker is dying, just not quickly enough, it sounds like someone is squealing every time there is a high note, or woman's voice. It is completely over the top noisy when I watch something that has, say, higher register guitar playing (rock music, anyone?), or police car sirens (cop show, anyone?) I have been listening with headphones, but that means I am quite literally stuck in one place. I can't just listen, or walk away from the computer.
Plus, for the talent portion of my performance, I have manage to knit the earphone cord into my baby blanket. Twice... (Let's just call it... Motivation. Right?) Guess it's a good thing I am not knitting lace...
I have finally had a Non Scale Victory (NSV). I looked in the mirror this morning, and realised that my double chin is now more of a chin and a half. It is definitely less noticeable! This is a good thing, to me!
It has been very quiet at the Cop Shop today... I was going to work on a flyer for my spinning group, (I was given permission from the gal, more or less, why are you asking, just do it! Uh. Okay.) I made up a flyer that had generic pictures on it. The gals all said they wanted pictures "OF THE GROUP". Well, I received the pictures to use today. It had two members of the group. Half a dozen wheels, a drop spindle or two, but OUR GROUP is a mite bigger than two people. And (snipe, snipe), I wasn't in the picture. So, for the second picture, I put a photo of all my socks I have knit.
I will avenge myself somehow! Heh.
Anyway, then I had a request to do up a newsletter for my CERT group. Ready to sit down and compose, I noticed a file on the computer I'd forgotten about. I guess my Karma points were up to date, because I had a fully finished newsletter. I had finished it about 2 months or so ago. Pretty much all that is needed is some pictures and 'fluff' on the latest exploits of our fine team, and I have it ready to go. Always a nice thing when I get a bonus like that. Makes me feel sort of... efficient!
One of the gals that I work for came in, and I commented on a cute Witch's Hat that was left over from Halloween. (It had been on the computer, for decoration.) It is a black hat with sparkly silver stars and a purple hatband with an antique buckle. I asked who brought it in, and the gal pipes up, Oh, I thought you had, it is so you!
Uh. It is? I put the hat on. I must say, it fit well. (I wear a black "uniform" when I am here, so it went fairly well with that, too.)
She then adds, yes, it looks good on you!
Uuuuh. Knowing this gal, I will indeed take this as a compliment, but man, it's just a tad on the strange side when someone tells you a witch's chapeau works for you... At least she didn't say it fit my personality...
So, on my blog. I will be doing some "cleaning" on the right side. I want to condense the scale thing again, so I am not going over several months to put the weekly weigh data in. I also need to do something about the blog roll. Some people's blogs aren't on there that I want, I have a few I need to take off, for one reason or another, and I hope to just "clean it up" a little. So if things look different, or are missing, hopefully it will return, and look better. Plus, I still haven't put my latest award up.
So. Time to get out the dustpan, the spray wax, elbow grease, and get the blog cleaned up.
(With some luck, I won't manage to delete the darn thing...)
