Socks for January

January 30, 2007

I think I’m going to try to make a pair of socks a month. Or, at least, 12 socks for the year. So far, I’ve finished up 3 pairs just this month so I guess I’ve got myself a head start there.

Pair #1: Made for Tania for her birthday (it’s February 6th!)

Pair #2: Bumblebees for me!

.. and here’s a glimpse of #3:


Pair #3 is done but it’s currently being washed and dried.

… I have merely an hour and 15 minutes until my birthday, entering 2nd quarter of the century. Eeks.

Yeay, New Year’s day!

January 1, 2007

So, last night was somewhat eventful.

Dave came over for the night – even though it wasn’t like an elaborate party or anything but it was nice to have people to spend the new year’s with. I think this was the first time in past few years that I wasn’t alone on New Year’s eve (Chris used to work 3rd shift). I even got us all prepared for the new year countdown. I got us some noise makers and.. nudie hats! (for those of you who have no idea what a nudie hat is, it’s one of those cellophane new year’s hat with nudie pictures on top of the hat)

We played some poker (and sadly, I didn’t win, dammit), watched some dumb movies and stuff, and drank and drank. Well, I wasn’t feeling the best earlier in the day so I really drink all that much. Whilst the boys had endless supplies of mixed drinks all night long, I really only drank a sip of vodka like once every hour – we had to toast once or so each hour, I couldn’t be the party pooper!

At the end, Dave passed out front of the fireplace so we called it a night about at 5 AM, and slept pretty much all day long. Yes, what an eventful day it has been today.

Though, I did finish that bigass button hat that I started couple of days ago. I mean, last year.
