Random bits for a Tuesday night

It's been a week since I posted, so I'll get you caught up on things really quick:
  • The Smooshy Raffle. Sadly, I didn't make my minimum, so the Smooshy's gonna be put away for another time. Since Punkin was the only bidder, I'm gonna get her a nice fibery consolation prize.

  • Work is starting to kick my ass. Huge projects, huge deliverables, huge risks. I'm trying to keep my panic reflexes to a minimum. Just one thing at a time...

  • A line of nasty t-storms moved through our area last night. Wasn't so bad when I got off the train. Getting a little dark, that's all. About half way home from the train station (maybe 2-3 minutes of driving) I saw this.

    I swear, it reminded me of those giant alien space ships moving over the country in Independence Day.

    10 minutes after this there was wind and hail and rain! Auntie Em! Auntie Em!
  • I'm booking along with my handpaint sock (heel flap!!!), so I've decided it's time for me to try a lace shawl. I was considering trying the Swallowtail Shawl, but after talking to an employee at Knitty City, I got sucked into was convinced to try the Flower Basket Shawl. However, I'm having a little problem with the Provisional Cast on pick up the garter bump thing. I need help. Maybe I'll got back to Knitty City later this week.

  • Cablevision sucks! It has always sucked, but tonight is especially sucked. I came home to find the cable signal all scrambled and there was no Internet access. And I planned on working from home tonight. And I decided not to waste my time downloading files before I left the office because I can just download them from the network when I get home! Damn you, Cablevision! DAMN YOU!!!!!!

    So I had to think of where there's free wi-fi.

    I'll go to the public library!

    No signal there tonight.

    We've got a Panera Bread nearby.

    I {{{HEART}}} PANERA!!!!
They're getting ready to close, so it's time for me to go home. Next time, a sock update.

Yay! A Consolation Prize is still a Prize and I never win anything!

LOL, that storm cloud was over my house right before you took a picture of it and it was MUCH Blacker. Great minds think alike, I, too, used the Wizard of Oz reference.

Ah, man, you had hail and we didn't. Drat!!!
