We're All Simply Mad Here…

My own perception of reality… one blog post at a time.

NaBloPoMo #1…

on November 1, 2012

Weather: Cold and frosty
Currenty Reading: Stone of Tears by Terry Goodkind
Currently Listening: Shadow of Night by Deborah Harkness

The title for my blog came from my favourite cup, the one that sits on my desk at work. Its an Alice in Wonderland mug-ish thing (its one of those cups that’s like a Starbucks takeout cup but made of china instead of cardboard) that I brought back from my very first holiday to Orlando. I use this mug-ish thing every day and every single day I get a little sad when I see the great big chip in it thanks to the office dishwasher. I know it’s only a mug-ish thing but I can’t just get another one as its too far to go just for new china. My DH has managed to convince me (hell, who am I kidding, I needed no convincing) to go back to Orlando a year from now. This time we’re taking my sister who will love it as much as we did.

I know this is going to make me very unpopular but… it’s only like 7.5 weeks to Christmas. I still have gift knitting to finish and my right hand is now back in its wrist brace ’cause I decided to overknit like an idiot. I’m hoping things will calm down next week, otherwise Mum’s slippers will never get finished. On a brighter note I did get my friend T’s shawl finished before the RSI of doom hit again. I haven’t blocked it yet and will either have to wait until my hand heals or get DH to help me. On the upside its 8 weeks until my self-imposed ‘Year Of No Yarn’ comes to an end. I have requested money to buy yarn for my birthday in December which will be kept and spent in the new year,

We didn’t get any trick or treaters last night. This made me sad but made my DH very happy as he now gets to eat all the sweets I bought. I was reading Halloween threads on Ravelry today and feeling very hard done by, Halloween is huge in the US I think and I wish it was still as big over this side of the pond. I did get one treat last night though, in the fom of a text message from L. She sent me a picture of her ultrasound. She’s having a boy. I know she had her hear set on a girl but I haven’t asked her about that. I don’t know why but I get the feeling it’d just be wrong to mention it. I don’t tend to sing from the same hymn sheet as everyone else most of the time so I tend to stick my foot in my mouth quite a bit.

Anyway, tonight I go walking with T so I get to hang about for an hour after I finish work. Tonight we’re having homemade tomato soup and grilled cheese sandwiches for tea, this is entirely thanks to the comfort food thread on LSG yesterday!

    Do you like the Goodkind books? An ex of mine LOVED them, but I found them unsatisfying. What do you enjoy about them?
