spinning up a storm!

Exams are over wheeee!! Last one was better than i thot it would be but we'll see.

As such i have lots of time on my hands so yesterday i sat down with season 2 of the Gilmore Girls (love it) and my wheel (which incidently needs a name, ideas??)

Corridale i starte ages ago and it got kinda neglected:Tis 105g, 40yds of fairly bulky (about 5wpi) but very smooshyness. No idea what it will become!
BFL in bumblefee! Got this from KK's etsy store bck in what May? and finally decided i can do it justice. Rather lully no?
Span it all up last night then decided i would give this Navajo Plying a bash, turns out 12.40am is not the time to try and learn new things! Thus i gave up til this morning and got it sorted out thus:

114g, 67yds somewhere between aran and chunky i think (7wpi), again what to make?

But now i think these kiddies need a bath and a stretch.

Things that can happen before an exam

not so high on the list of wants.

Had a it of a coming together with alamppost. Going round a roundaout i was turning the car wasnt, think the road was icy/gritty.
After the very nice men at Pentlands Science park security box thingy made sure i was oki, i decided the car was drivable (tho much scrapy noises and bits fallin off!) and got into uni for myexam, which needless to say didnt go brilliantly!!

But the worst injury i sustained was a broken nail removing the hubcap to drive home (slowly!) so i suppose its not all that bad! Pain in the arse tho!

studying=lose of carpet and other flat surfaces

exams next 2 weeks means i has to studies, this means papers. apparently this also means a general layer of detritus accumulating everywhere:
The only reason i dont have essntially a fort built out of mugs is my mother periodically comes and removes them...

In other news its December! this means 2 things, first i get to open my spongebob advent calander (today it was a wheel!) and secondly Novemeber is over, thus the daily posting need not continue, tho i might try more frequently. I did miss a few days but i think 28/30 isnt bad

A response, because I can

I like procrastination.

I has been decided my apparent Emoness is just an unfortunate collision between my punk/goth sensibilitys and a hefty dosage of pirate (hence the love of all things striped). I'm prolly to old to be emo anyways.

But my point is clearly i am a pirate:

Are you a Pirate?

You are Captain Flint. Most cruel and wickedhearted pirate of them all, you are. Indeed, though only a pirate of imagination are ya my lad. (Or lass, as the case may be.)You are a Captain though and as such command power. I was going to say respect but fear is a rather more accurate term. Isn't it, sneaky?

I've been Worried

First off this posting ever day thing has kinda gone to hell, oh well, i have exams to study for and a boring life!!

But the subject of this post is to assauge a fear i have had for a while. Its difficult for me to say this but i was worried i might be *whisper* Emo...

I kno i kno the outrage, but well I do like the pink and black stripes or the red and black stripes, but that can be attributed to my inner pirate, however the more worrying is the bands sneaking on to my playlists, Panic at the disco, fall out boy and most recently and concerningly My Chemical Romance. so i felt something had tobe done.

I did what anyone would do under the circumstances i turned to the internet for self diagnosis. seems there are many quizzes as to whether one is Emo, the results were thus:

Are You Emo?

You are 39% Emo. Ha Ha!

Whiner baby.

Stop your whining and grab a tissue. Suck it up princess. You can do better, don't you think? Oh well.. anyway.. thanks for playing...

How Emo Are You
Quizzes for MySpace

Your EMO Test (How Emo Are You?) Purity Test Results
You answered "yes" to 16 of 50 questions, with a total value of 16 points out of 53, making you 69.8% HAPPINESS pure; that is, you are 69.8% pure in the EMO domain (you have 30.2% EMO in you).
According to the scoring guide, your EMO experience level is: GLUM

You are almost emo. You listen to music with emo lyrics like Linkin Park (crawling in my skin) but haven't really ventured into the acoustic sounds of the true emo audiophile. You might have shaggy hair, but only because you're lazy, not really because you strive for emo-ness.

It would appear I am not emo, this is good.

I still wouldnt let me loose in Hot topic tho...

You are pink aluminum.Retro, straightforward and fun, you love classic things. If they're 99 cents at Goodwill all the better! You are moved by striking colors and tasty morsels, and you like a stitch-n-bitch session in the sun. Just remember, while you're being kitschy cool, don't get too cold. Ice cubes are best kept in your cocktails, baby!
