Listening: "Who's Line is it Anyway?" What can I say, I'm a creature of habit...

Reading (perhaps quality): The Post

Reading (definitely pulp): still trekking through "Needful Things" by Stephen King. Hey, it's long.

Drinking: water.

Still snarkey. This is getting ridiculous - had a great time at happy hour with Demmert and D and Leigh and Porter, then got home and just felt exhausted deflated and like all I wanted to do was to I don't know, if I knew perhaps I wouldn't feel this sense that something's missing.

But things are coming along on my new sweater. Have had to restart it four times now - there's some place around row 15 that I keep dropping a stitch and my tension when starting the knit rows tends to be looser than when starting purls... but it's coming together nicely. And I saw that eknitting has the yarn and dyelot in case I need to pick up another skein. Hurrah!

Talked to HK yesterday - when she moved from San Francisco last year it was like an occasional but awesome presence left. Actually that's exactly what it was like. We caught up on the last few weeks (she's going sky diving in a couple of weeks, interested in another strong-silent type), she asked when I was coming up to visit. Though I was just in New York, a visit with HK just sounds too delicious to pass up. I can just imagine the shopping, drinking, and good stories that would result from a weekend in the city. Must make plans to come up soon - maybe in the fall?

Trying hard not to bite my nails. If you've known me for long, you know I've been biting my nails since I was about six. I've tried since then to stop but when I'm stressed gnawing at my fingertips is strangely comforting (though completely disgusting-sounding when written out like that). I stopped so I could get a manicure for Beth and Scott's wedding and it seemed a shame to start again. So they're lovely and for me incredibly long. We're talking talons.

Doing (life and related tasks): still catching up at work.

Doing (crafty stuff): continuing with my collage walls, maybe making some curtains?

Wanting: Nothing much.

Anticipating: getting a decent night's sleep.
