Special Sauce

A mish-mash of twisted thoughts from a fevered ego. Updated when the spirit moves me, contents vary and may have settled during shipping. Do not open towards eyes. Caution: Ingestion of Special Sauce may cause hair loss, halitosis, and a burning sensation while urinating.


Brief 'n'Boring

Just wanted to say that if you haven't picked up your Girls Bike Club Shirt yet, now's the time to do it.

I will be the envy of all who survey me...

In other news, it's unseasonably warm, I have new Docs (surprisingly enough, not the traditional black. These are a pretty, dark, oxblood with diagonal stitch detail on the toe, and I lurve them), so my casual footwear needs are covered from here till doomsday. (Seriously. I had a pair of docs I got from a friend, she got them from another friend of hers- they were definitely loved, and I still wore those things nearly every day for four years, ditching them only when the leather wore through at the sides of my toes. I adored those shoes.)

of course, this means that I'll be quitting my job soon, and getting hired someplace where I can't wear deliriously comfortable casual shoes.

Whilst at Borders on Friday, I found a spiffy book called America's Women: 400 years of Dolls, Drudges, Helpmates, and Heroines. It's damned interesting, and a reasonably fast read.

Things on the half.com list to pick up this week...

The Villains Guide to Better Living, sequel to How to Be A Villain. The graphic design in this book is a scream, and it's so very evil... I love it.

And both Maria Righetti knitting books. Anyone who teaches sweater and garment design by forcing you to make patterns called "The Stupid Baby Bonnet" and "The Ridiculous Bootees to match the Stupid Baby Bonnet" is all right by me.
I've been decidedly un-crafty of late, and this has to change. The cards this weekend don't count, because... well, they weren't up to snuff.

Have a swell day.

Oh, ET. Hopefully things will come together in such a way that I can get a GBC shirt...that's worth doing without.

You know, I got new Docs this year.
What color are they? Burgundy.

I'll have to check out H2BAV on your rec.

Eagerly awaiting my Hightower, I remain

your ET.
